This is a hair repair treatment that’s getting heaps of buzz in the hair community, especially with people who have damaged hair from excessive bleach. It’s available in a couple of forms – Olaplex can be mixed in with colouring products to minimise damage, or used as a separate treatment.
“It does for the hair, what calcium does for the bones”
Working on the internal structure of the hair to repair or keep the strength of each and every strand.
Unlike other hair straightening products, such as the Brazilian Blow Dry, chemical relaxers or the Japanese smoothing treatment, the Kerastraight Keratin Treatment smoothes your hair without damaging or changing its structure. The treatment can be used on all hair types, including hair that has been chemically treated i.e. coloured, permed, relaxed, highlighted and bleached. Due to the fact that Keratin treatment does not contain Formaldehyde, it will not straighten your hair until it is flat and lifeless, but it will leave it straighter and smoother. If you have frizzy hair or tight curls it will loosen and smooth them so you can then just wash and leave – plus it makes it VERY easy to blow-dry your straight.
The application process takes anywhere between 2 to 4 hours depending on the length and thickness of your hair. After the product is applied, it is sealed with a hot flat-iron which traps moisture, hydrates the hair, and creates a brilliant glossy finish.
