If you have frizzy, curly, or unruly hair that gets worse with the humidity of Miami and your wish is to have it smooth and straight without the bother of everyday care, you know that Keratin is the right treatment for you. This de-freezing treatment has grown in popularity recently for one simple reason: it works, and the results are amazing. 

However, this does not mean that getting keratin treatment anywhere will give you the hair you envision. What you need to do is place your mane in the hands of true professionals that have the skills and knowledge to baby your hair and care for it as you expect. Make an appointment at Danny Jelaca Salon & Spa today, and let us give you the perfect keratin treatment to leave you looking as spectacular as you wish!

The Basics of Keratin Treatment

Keratin is a chemical process that works to smooth and shine frizzy, curly, or unruly hair. Hair gets frizzy when its outermost layer lifts. When this happens, environmental factors find a way in, and they swell the hair making it frizzy and hard to control. When a keratin treatment is applied, the hair’s cuticle is smoothed over and sealed, preventing it from continuing to expand and becoming frizzy.

There are many different keratin treatments. During your consultation, your hair specialist will recommend the most appropriate one for your hair or customize a special formula to fit your needs. No matter what keratin treatment you receive, your hair will appear healthier because it will be.

How long does it take to get a keratin treatment?

The texture and length of your hair will play a role in how long it takes to apply your keratin treatment. Give yourself plenty of time because you do not want your stylist to feel rushed or pressured to finish quickly.

As soon as you arrive, your hair will be washed, and the keratin treatment will be applied to your wet hair. The formula will remain on your hair and saturate it for thirty minutes. Other keratin treatments call for the hair to be blown dry first and then receive the keratin treatment. It will depend mostly on the health of your hair. Keratin is heat-activated, and finally, every strand will be gone over with a flat iron on low or medium heat to seal in the treatment and get the best results.

You can expect your Danny Jelaca keratin treatment to last between one and six months.

Differences Between a Keratin Treatment and a Chemical Relaxer

If you want your hair to be straightened out, you may consider a chemical relaxer. However, it is important to know that keratin treatments and hair relaxers use different ingredients, and the results will also be different. In general, straightening chemical relaxers tend to be permanent while keratin treatments are not. Still, the main difference might actually be the fact that while chemical relaxers break and then restructure the bonds of curly hair to get it to be straight, they also weaken the hair.

On the other hand, Keratin treatments do not alter the chemical composition of the hair but, in fact, inject the porous sections of your hair with protein to strengthen it and make it feel smoother. It will slowly wash out, and you can decide how often you want the keratin treatment to be repeated.

Main Benefits of Keratin Treatment

Keratin in hair treatments is derived either from feathers, wool, or horns and provides your hair with many benefits. Among them:

Hair That Is Smooth and Shiny

Keratin makes hair more manageable with less frizz. It also gives hair a healthy, glossy look, reducing the appearance of split ends and helping to bond hair strands back together.

Results Last a Long Time

Talk to your hair specialist about the best care for your hair after receiving a keratin treatment. When you follow their instructions by not over-washing your hair, you can have it last for up to six months.

Your Hair Becomes More Manageable

After a keratin treatment, you can forget about dealing with the frizz in your hair. Hair that has received a keratin treatment tends to dry much more quickly, and by allowing it to air dry, you may use the drier for less time and avoid causing damage to your hair from the heat. You can also avoid having the ends of your hair break off.
