What is Keratin?
Keratin is a protein found in the hair and nails. It helps to strengthen and protect both structures. Keratin treatments can help improve the appearance of your hair and nails, as well as reduce damage caused by styling products.
Types of Keratin Treatments
There are three main types of keratin treatments: chemical, laser, and radiofrequency.
Chemical Keratin Treatments
Chemical keratin treatments use a variety of chemicals to break down the hair’s protein structure and remove the keratin proteins. These treatments are typically more expensive than laser or radiofrequency treatments and may require multiple sessions to achieve desired results.
Laser Keratin Treatments
Laser keratin treatments use powerful light to break down the hair’s protein structure and remove the keratin proteins. Like chemical treatments, laserkeratin treatments can be more expensive than radiofrequency or optical solutions, but they offer faster results with fewer sessions required.
Radio Frequency Keratin Treatments
Radio frequency keratin treatment uses low-level electromagnetic fields to break down the hair’s protein structure and remove the keratin proteins. Unlike laser or mechanical solutions, RFKs do not require any external light sources and can be used on all hair types including color-treated hair.
How to Apply a Keratin Treatment
There are various ways to apply keratin treatments, and the method you choose depends on the type of treatment you’re applying and your hair’s texture.
To apply a keratin treatment using hot oil:
1. Warm up the oil in a small bowl or container until it is hot but not smoking.
2. Apply the oil to your hair, focusing on the ends where curls tend to form.
3. Wait 1-2 minutes for the oil to heat up and penetrate your hair follicles before rinsing off with warm water.
4. Rinse off any residual oil with cold water, then towel dry your hair.
5. For best results, follow up with a Keratin Treatment Conditioner (available at most beauty retailers).
Benefits of Keratin Treatment
Though Keratin treatments are most often used to treat hair loss, there are many other benefits to using keratin products. Keratin treatment can help improve the condition and texture of your skin, eliminate frizz and give you a more polished appearance. Additionally, keratin treatments can sometimes help to reduce the appearance of scars and stretchmarks. Finally, keratin treatments can improve your nails by making them stronger and less brittle.
How do you do a keratin treatment step by step?
To apply keratin treatment, start by washing your hair thoroughly with a shampoo and conditioner that is designed for curly or kinky hair. You may also want to use a scalp treatment such as an olive oil scalp treatment before you begin the keratin treatments.
Next, towel dry your hair and apply a liberal amount of serum to your hair shaft. Massage the serum into your hair until it is fully absorbed.
Now, cover your hair with a satin or silk cap. The tightness of the cap will help seal in the serum while you wait for the keratin treatments to work their magic.
After 30 minutes have passed, remove the cap and give your hair a good shake. This will release any excess keratin treatment and allow it to penetrate into the hair shaft.
Now repeat steps 2-4 until all of your hair has been treated. Be sure to wash your hands and nails thoroughly after completing the process so that no residue remains on them!
How is a keratin treatment applied?
Keratin is a protein that helps hair grow. It is applied to the scalp in a dermal filler treatment. The keratin is injected into the hair shaft, and then sets into place. This results in thicker, fuller hair with reduced frizz.
Can I apply keratin treatment myself?
If you are looking to get your hair treated with keratin, there are a few ways you can do it yourself. You can either go to a salon and have it done as a semi-permanent treatment, or you can apply the treatment yourself at home.
Semi-permanent treatments use Keratin straightener which is heated up to around 380 degrees Fahrenheit. This will cause the keratin in the hair to break down and form a protective coating on your hair shaft. Once this has been applied, the heat will be turned off and the device will cool down slowly which will seal in the treatment.
You can also apply keratin treatment at home using a keratin treatment kit. These kits come with everything you need including the heat gun, applicator wand, and instructions. The applicator wand is used to apply the heat while the heat gun seals in the treatment by breaking down the keratin in your hair shaft.
Is keratin applied to wet or dry hair?
Keratin is an excellent hair treatment because it can be applied to wet or dry hair. However, before you apply keratin treatments, it is important to understand what the different types of keratin are and how they work.
There are three main types of keratin: fibroblast-derived, epithelial-derived, and sebum-derived. Fibroblast-derived keratin is found in the dermal layer of the skin and helps keep that layer waterproof. Epithelial-derived keratin is found in the epidermis and helps protect the skin from external damage. Sebum-derived keratin is found in sweat and sebaceous glands, and it helps lubricate the hair shaft.
What determines which type of keratin will be most beneficial for your hair depends on a variety of factors, including your hair’s texture, length, thickness, and ethnic background. Some people with curly or wavy hair may benefit more from epithelial-derived keratin while others with straighter or less textured hair may benefit more from fibroblast-derived keratin treatments.
Once you have determined which type of keratin treatment is right for you, you will need to find a salon that offers this service. The best way to find a salon that offers this service is by searching online for reviews or contacting local salons directly. Once you have located a salon that offers this service, make an appointment and bring along your hair sample
