Smoothing Treatments 101
If frizz and dryness defined your hair for all your life, getting a keratin treatment this summer is a way to make your hair smoother and styling more manageable. Keratin treatments promise to tame frizz, significantly cut down blow-drying time, and give unruly hair a long-lasting shine and silkiness—the style is a welcome change from the usual beach-waves vibe everybody goes for.
What is a keratin treatment?
A keratin treatment is a temporary smoothing treatment that infuses hair with keratin, a fibrous protein found in hair, skin, and fingernails. It’s great for someone who wants to tone down their nature curl texture and make styling a seamless process. A keratin treatment is probably not for you if you already have very thin or brittle hair, but it’s pretty magical if you want to turn thick, wild, and uncooperative curl patterns into smoother, shinier hair that lasts for months at a time.
How does a keratin treatment work?
Essentially, it’s a chemical treatment that’s applied to wet hair and has to sit for about an hour and a half before being sealed in via blow-drying or flatironing. It works by coating the pores, sealing the cuticle, adding shine, and eliminating frizz.
There are two ways to achieve the glossy look: One is with an at-home keratin treatment you can probably find at the drugstore, while the other is at the salon. Hairstylists will always encourage you to visit a professional because experts will match the strength of the formula to your hair’s needs and help you set expectations—unlike the one-size-fits-all formulas, which likely won’t be as effective or long-lasting. Keratin treatments have different chemical levels that range from mild to strong.
Keratin treatments have gotten a bad rep over the years since some of the O.G. formulas use formaldehyde, a possible carcinogen, to keep hair smooth and straight for extended periods of time, which was putting salon workers at major risk. However, hair-care brands have now created formaldehyde-free options (the product that we offer in our salon is Cezanne Perfect Finish Keratin Smoothing Treatment) that are effective but far less controversial.

Premium Keratin Smoothing
With this treatment you can wash and even put your hair up as soon as you leave the salon.
As the treatment is designed to treat the hair from the inside out, it can push artificial colour out of the hair causing some fading. It is then better to perform the treatment a week before having your normal colour.
