What is Keratin Treatment?

Keratin is a type of protein that makes up your hair, nails, and outer layer of the skin. Keratin adds strength and luster to the hair, but in curly and textured hair, this protein is weaker which results in dryness and frizz. A keratin treatment is a chemical process following which the manes are given a smooth and shiny texture. While the protein itself cannot tame frizz, it is the formaldehyde ingredient in the formula that helps accomplish the task. Blow-drying and flat-ironing of hair are two essential steps of the Keratin treatment. The results of this treatment may last up to three-six months depending upon your hair type and the treatment at the salon.

It is of course a time taking task. Depending on your hair length, texture, treatment, and formula used, the treatment can take anywhere between two to four hours.
