Keratin Straightening treatments have made a MASSIVE resurgence in the last year or so, and a lot of hair salons have jumped on the band wagon and are doing them by the truck load! But, no two Keratin Smoothing treatments are the same! And, unfortunately, no two salons are the same either.
At Delilah Hair Studio we searched high and low for the best Keratin hair treatment, and trialled and tested different brands so that we can bring to you the best Keratin Smoothing treatment possible! With our wealth of experience, we offer you the most relevant and cutting edge information as possible in this blog post.
These questions will arm you with the best information on Keratin Smoothing hair treatment and help you to…KNOW YOUR KERATIN PRODUCT!
Here is a list of 5 questions to ask before booking a keratin hair treatment at a hairdressing salon (if you can’t get to our hairdressing salon in Melbourne). These questions will help you differentiate between the good, the bad, and the ugly!
1. Is it formaldehyde free?
Keratin treatments came on to the hairdressing market with an explosion a few years ago and quickly became the hot thing in hair! Smooth, straight and frizz free hair was as easy as 1, 2, 3! Everyone was having a keratin treatment, from celebrities to socialites, it was the latest and best thing to happen in hairdressing!
Then came the fall. The discovery of large amounts of formaldehyde (the active ingredient) in the keratin products.
Formaldehyde being a well known carcinogen, was quickly removed from Keratin products rendering them useless and it all came to a standstill.
It’s only now that completely reimagined formaldehyde free Keratin Smoothing products are coming on to the market, and there is only 1 that we folk at Delilah use and love that has completely replaced and taken it to the the next level from formaldehyde based keratin treatments (read more on Cezanne Keratin Smoothing)
2. How long will it last in my hair?
There is a wealth of choice when it comes to Keratin Straightening products these days. The sheer number of brands available makes it quite confusing to decide which treatment to opt for. Unfortunately, most keratin smoothing products feel amazing in the hair and remove the frizz, only to begin wearing off after a couple of weeks!
And then there is the next level of keratin treatments that are a complete fizz out after just 6 weeks.
So then, for such great, long-lasting effects, which brand should you choose?
In our expert opinion, Cezanne Keratin Smoothing is the only keratin treatment that lasts the distance. We have clients coming back after 5 to 6 months for another treatment and you can still feel the previous Keratin Smoothing treatment in their hair!
The effects of most keratin smoothing hair treatments begin to fade after a few weeks, and even wash out completely! When choosing a keratin straightening hair treatment, you want to find one that has a snowball effect! As in, every time you have a treatment, the effects compound in your hair (rather than completely washing out).
Cezanne Keratin Smoothing has a compounding effect. Even if you have the treatment done every 5 to 6 months, the effect build ups in your hair for all year round frizz free tresses, smoothness and shine!
4. How much will it cost?
Being such a hot topic in hairdressing at the moment, Keratin smoothing treatments can sometimes carry an equally hot and hefty price tag! In doing my research, some keratin straightening treatments can cost as much as $600!
At Delilah Hair Studio, we pride ourselves on fairness and quality. We have purposely priced our keratin treatment starting at $275 so that more of our gorgeous clients can have it done!
Price is not necessarily a measure for quality, and in the case of keratin hair treatments, it definately doesn’t compare!
5. How many active compounds are in the product?
Most brands of keratin straightening treatments have just 1 active compound. This is probably the reason why none of them compare to Cezanne Keratin Smoothing!
Cezanne has not 1, not 2, but 3 active ingredients. This is the reason for the amazing results and the longevity of the treatment in the hair.
Cezanne contains Sericin (a natural silk), Keratin AND glycolic acid!
The keratin is for strength, the Sericin (silk) is for smoothness and shine, and the glycolic acid is to keep your hair supple and frizz free!
Finally a product that has a triple whammy of effects. We believe you really just can’t go past it!
