Keratin Treatments Alpharetta, GA


For some Alpharetta women the secret to their beautiful, smooth, shiny locks is a keratin treatment. This de-frizzing hair salon process is trendier than ever but is it safe and can you afford it? What exactly is the process and how long will it last? There’s a lot of questions and debate surrounding keratin treatments. We’ll walk you through them here.


First, what is a Keratin Treatment?


A keratin treatment is a chemical process that smooths frizzy hair and adds shine. Some will straighten hair completely, and others work to relax and loosen the curly shape. When the outermost layer of the hair, lifts, allowing moisture to seep in, swelling the hair shaft and making it thicker and frizzier. By permeating the hair with a keratin treatment, we can smooth down the cuticle and seal it, preventing breaks and Frizz.


How long does a Keratin Treatment last?


Keratin treatment results can last anywhere from 4 weeks to 5 months. There are many different versions of the treatment and your Alpharetta, GA hairstylist at Moochini will customize a blend of the formula to suit your needs perfectly. The Keratin ProcessThe length of time it takes to do a keratin treatment depends on the formula your Alpharetta hairstylist is using, how much hair you have and its texture. Most treatments take two to four hours. Your hairstylist will first wash your hair. Then, the hairstylist will either apply the keratin treatment to your wet hair or will blow-dry your hair first and then apply the treatment. It all depends on your hairstylist and your hair needs. The keratin treatment is then heat-activated with a flat iron.


Are Keratin Treatments Safe?


Some versions of the treatment release formaldehyde when heated, but many newer versions are formaldehyde-free. No matter the formaldehyde content, on a basic level, keratin treatments dive into the hair follicle and inject porous areas with keratin, an essential hair protein. Your hair will appear healthier because it is healthier after a treatment.


Can I get a Keratin Treatment if I Colored my Hair?


Yes you can! Unlike some chemical-straightening relaxers, you can safely have both dyed hair and a keratin treatment without the risk of damage. Many hairstylists recommend the client shampoo their hair once or twice a week, only when necessary and rinse the hair with water and then apply conditioner only. Do not use salt-based sprays for textured hair.
