What’s the Buzz About Keratin Hair Treatments?

From celebrities to supermodels, everyone is talking about keratin hair treatments. Even royalty can’t get enough of the flawlessly smooth, moisture-restoring formula that this unique protein-based treatment delivers. Meghan Markle confided in PEOPLE magazine that keratin hair treatments are the secret behind maintaining her famous “Markle Sparkle.” But you don’t need to be a princess to capture some of that glow for yourself! 

At Deseo, we use a fortifying, cuticle protective, keratin formula that works effectively on all hair types and textures. The secret behind our unique sparkle? Keratin protein makes up 91% of hair, with 16 different amino acids to strengthen and protect each strand. This is what prevents damage, breakage, and — you guessed it — frizz. Keratin treatment penetrates the hair shafts and seals the cortex. This can repair years of damage from coloring, chemical processing, and everyday wear and tear.

The result? Healthier hair that shines and dazzles.

Keratin Hair Treatment vs. Brazilian Blowout and Other Hair Smoothing Treatments

Keratin treatment is specially formulated for those looking to achieve high-end style and extra smooth hair. Unlike a Brazilian Blowout that leaves some of your natural texture and curl, a keratin treatment will smooth each strand to create seamless movement. Like Olaplex, keratin treatment repairs the chemical bonds that have become broken or damaged. It also seals the hair follicle to prevent future damage. While Olaplex works to deep condition from within, keratin treatments coat the outside of the hair shaft like a shield against wind, sun, and heat styling damage.

The nourishing ingredients in each keratin treatment provide body and depth for your new smoothed hair. The hair won’t lie flat and dull. Instead, it shines with a silky soft radiance that’s far more manageable for everyday styling. Keratin treatments are recommended for those who want smooth hair with more control and shine.

Care, Upkeep, and More Ways to Love Keratin Treatments

A favorite attribute of keratin treatment is the long last effects of hair smoothing magic. Keratin treatments tend to last longer than most treatments, typically maintaining its aesthetic for up to 12 weeks. This means less at-home smoothing and more style inspiration for your new sleek look.

To maintain the keratin bonds infused in each strand, it’s advisable that clients avoid washing their hair, clipping hair up, heat styling, or otherwise twisting, pulling, and putting elastics in hair for the first two days. Treat your freshly smooth locks with extra love and give them a break from frequent styling! Then, after the initial honeymoon phase, you can get back to styling your hair as usual. A deep conditioning product formulated with the same protein bonds as a keratin treatment can help you maintain the look between sessions. We recommend Kérastase’s full line of salon-perfect products for at-home haircare.

What Type of Hair Works Best for Keratin Treatment in Denver?

Many of our salon guests wonder who the best candidates for keratin treatment in Denver are. Does this gorgeous smoothing solution work for all hair types, or are there certain hair textures that offer the best results?

A good rule of thumb is that keratin smoothing is an excellent styling option for coarse, thick, and frizzy hair. Think Type 2b-c hair with a slight wave, full wavy Type 3 hair, and extra voluminous natural Type 4 hair. A keratin treatment in Denver eliminates frizz and softens each strand for easy styling. If you’re someone who prefers wearing their hair straight or simply smoothed to create their ideal curl, a keratin treatment is a perfect alternative to daily heat styling and other more damaging hair treatments such as permanents.

What Types of Hair Do NOT Work for Keratin Treatment in Denver?

As much as we love the power of a good keratin smoothing treatment, keratin treatments aren’t for everyone. 

Our salon guests with fine, thin, and delicate hair should generally avoid this type of treatment and opt for a more gentle deep conditioning treatment instead to lift the hair to its desired smoothness. High heat when sealing the keratin bonds can cause breakage in extra fine hair. Over-processed hair should also pause on undergoing a keratin treatment to avoid further damage. If you’ve recently undergone an intense treatment such as bleaching and toning or platinum blonde all over color, it’s a good idea to take a break between treatments. Your stylist can assess your hair’s health and help you decide on the best journey for your unique hair.

You may also want to be advised that a keratin treatment creates a seamlessly smooth appearance. This can often take out any wave that your hair naturally has, especially in Type 2 and Type 3 hair. If you’d like to ensure your hair retains its natural wave, a Brazilian blowout may be a better option for keeping some of your lovely curl intact.

How Long After a Keratin Treatment Should You Wait to Shower?

After a keratin treatment in Denver, you’ll want to wait a full 48 hours or two days prior to getting your hair wet. Water can undo the delicate keratin bonds and ruin your newfound favorite style. Caring for your smooth new look will ensure the style lasts longer between salon appointments.

What About Exercise?

We love our active beauty gurus in Colorado! However, you’ll want to schedule your keratin treatment in Denver on a rest day. Excess sweat has the same negative effect on your style as any other water. That means you’ll want to avoid hitting the gym for at least two or three days post-treatment. If you’re dying for some movement, opt for restorative yoga, Pilates, or a nice walk instead. Just be sure to stay out of the rain!

What’s the Best Way to Keep Your Style Looking Smooth and Feeling Soft?

When it comes to maintaining a keratin hair treatment, there are a few ground rules that will keep your hair looking flawless. The usual style tips apply, such as:

  • Using keratin-safe products
  • Being gentle on your hair and avoiding other chemical treatments at this time
  • Using nourishing all-natural shampoos and conditioners
  • Taking rest days between washing

If there’s one keratin-friendly hair tip we swear by, it’s making time for a refreshing hair masque two or three times per week. This will keep your hair ultra-soft and silky smooth.
