There Are Two Different Application In Hair Salons
First: It’s basically a hair straightening application under the name of keratin treatment. It’s applied for straightening curly, wavy, or damaged hair. It makes the hair shiny straight smooth as silk. But unfortunately, it lasts only for one or two weeks.
The other one: It’s used as general care for matte, dry, hard, and even a little damaged hair to give it a more beautiful shiny voluminous look. But because these applications usually contain synthetic, they last not just a week maybe a few days, they lose their effect in the sea, pool, shower…
However, it gives a beautiful look even though it’s temporary. But does it really worth the cost? Not really.
Recommendation: Use natural pure keratin application at home or at a hair salon. Because other applications last short.

Please read every line carefully, it’s important to understand everything for correct application.
You need oils for hair care: Before keratin treatment, you need specific oils for hair that works best for the hair. For example: argan oil, olive oil, coconut oil, etc.
These products affect the hair follicle and keep the hair hydrated. But because keratin can’t reach the hair follicles these oils prevent keratin treatment and its efficiency.
To Clean your Hair from These Oils:
Wash your hair with warm water using shampoo, gently massage your hair and do it 3-4 times. Make sure you use enough shampoo. After applying all over wait for 3-4 minutes then rinse again. Use warm water throughout rinsing. Rub your hair with a towel and dry thoroughly. Again, to dry your hair even better while keeping your hair scales healthy, warm your hair with a blowdryer and increase the temperature to finish the process.
Tip: It’s important to have a straight hair for keratin treatment.
