Benefits of Keratin Treatment
Are you suffering from frizzy hair? If so, just know that you’re not alone because we know how frustrating it can be to tame such a hair condition, especially when we’re living in one of the tropical countries in Southeast Asia. Plus, the dry and wet weather throughout the year tends to complicate the process of taming frizzy hair.
If you’re wondering why you have frizzy hair or how does it happen in the first place, you’ve come to the right place as we explore what it means to have frizzy hair, and how a Keratin treatment in Singapore’s hair salon works to tame frizzy hair.
Why does frizzy hair develop in the first place?
You already know that frizzy hair refers to hair strands that stick out from the rest of your hair. It can be the shorter or longer, dryer strands of hair that won’t stay put. What you don’t know is how it develops in the first place.
Frizzy hair happens when all the different individual hair fibres are running in multiple directions. This occurs when the cuticle layer of your hair is raised, allowing moisture to pass through and swell the strands.
The cuticle layer is the outermost layer of your hair strand that protects the innermost layers of your hair shaft. Underneath a microscope, the cuticle layer looks like shingles on a roof.
When the cuticle layer is properly sealed, it can retain moisture in your hair shaft longer, making your hair less prone to frizz. Otherwise, it results in frizzy hair. But this doesn’t mean that your hair is damaged. It simply means that your hair longs for moisture and tends to frizz faster than usual when the strands are exposed to moisture.
At the same time, chemical-based hair products as well as unsuitable atmospheric conditions can damage the keratin protein in the outer and inner part of your hair, leaving you with curly, frizzy, or dry hair strands.
How does Keratin Treatment help to reduce frizz?
Keratin treatment is famed by various hair salons for helping tame frizzy hair. It’s a special chemical-based hair therapy designed to improve the elasticity, sheen, thickness, and hair health to restore the lost keratin. It also helps to remove unwanted curls, roughness, and enliven the hair while saving you the pain of straightening your hair daily.
Keratin Hair Treatment Method
This hair treatment involves multiple steps that require a professional application. The first step begins with your hairdresser washing your hair. Then your hairdresser will bind the keratin to your hair using a flat iron.
The heat that emanates from the iron creates the mixture that is used to straighten your hair. To help the keratin function properly, your hairdresser may add a handful of essential chemicals.
After the treatment, you can wash your hair the next day, using shampoos formulated for keratin-treated hair. The best part about this treatment is that the effects typically last for 2-4 months, depending on the original condition of your hair.
Benefits of Keratin Treatment
There are several benefits to this hair treatment, even if your hair isn’t frizzy. However, the results depend on your hair type and texture. They also vary depending on how healthy your hair is and how thick it is.
That said, the benefits of a keratin treatment include:
Protecting curly hair
If you have curly hair and prefer to wear it straight most of the time, a keratin treatment for curly hair can help to loosen your curls, which may make it easier for you to manage your hair. After the treatment, you won’t have to apply as much heat as before.
Designed to improve your hair health, a keratin treatment helps to restore the lost protein in your hair fibres, making your hair sleeker and smoother than it used to be. Besides, this keratin treatment is ideal for Singaporeans who want their hair to appear more polished without the flyaway and frizzy texture.
Making your hair stronger
Binding keratin to your hair also makes it stronger as it works to ensure that the bonds between the roots and follicles of your hair are open, then your roots are bonded to your hair again with protein. This means your hair will be more securely connected to your roots, which prevents limpness and hair fall.
Reducing blow-dry time
If you often blow-dry your hair to make it appear straight in the morning, a keratin treatment can reduce the time you spent on blow-drying. That’s because the treatment helps to remove unwanted curls and roughness, resulting in silky, smooth hair, even in the warmer months of the year.
Things to note before joining the Keratin Treatment bandwagon
Before you opt for a keratin treatment, you should know that keratin-treated hair should not be permed or bleached within 4-6 months. This is because the hair is coated with keratin, so the actual hair condition would not be visible to your hairstylist. Inform your stylist if you have keratin-treated hair before your chemical hair service.
