What is Keratin?
Keratin is a protein that already exists naturally in your hair (and skin and nails). It forms a protective shield around the hair shaft and helps your hair stay elastic and youthful. When the outer layer of keratin becomes damaged it affects the new cells that are no longer being protected underneath it. This type of damage can be done by over-styling, heat, bleach, coloring and other damaging processes.
What should I expect my hair to feel like after receiving either treatment?
You’ll notice your hair is straighter, more hydrated, shinier and softer. Both our treatments create a protective layer of Keratin that boosts your hair, making it healthy and full of life.
How long does it last on my hair?
Our treatments last three to six months depending on the nature of your hair and number of times Keratin treatments have been applied. It is important that you either use our aftercare products (replenishing shampoo and conditioner) or purchase a sulfate-free shampoo. Our after-care products are designed to balance the pH levels of the hair and assist in prolonging the treatment while maintaining ultimate shine.
If I’ve bleached, treated, coloured, straightened or had any other kind of chemicals, can I still use the Hair Botox treatment without damaging or breaking my hair?
YES! Everyone is a good candidate for our hair botox treatment. This is especially great for people with frizzy, damaged or processed hair. Our botox is a reconstructed which works to repair the hair root to tip, benefiting every hair type (permed, fine, course, frizzy, curly, colour treated, extensions and Japanese treatments).
Is there any smell or irritation to the eyes?
Both our treatments do NOT contain formaldehyde. There is no irritation of the eyes or skin. There is no bad smell like other keratin treatments.
Can I swim in the pool or ocean after I have the treatment?
Exposure to salt and chlorine will strip the hair of keratin treatment. We have a serum you can use before the beach or swimming pool to seal your hair strands and protect the treatment. Alternatively, you can purchase a leave-in treatment of your choice and apply it to your hair before going into the ocean/pool to protect it.
How soon can I touch up my colour after I get the treatment?
You can colour at anytime! Our treatments can be washed at anytime after receiving the treatment. We do recommend you allow the color to remain in the hair 10 minutes longer than usual while applying.
Can I use the treatment on kids?
Kids over 8 years of age are suitable for our treatments
Can I use the hair treatment the same day my hair has been coloured?
We recommend waiting another week after coloring your hair. To avoid changes in the colour of your hair, we recommend you opt in for our Hair Both treatment as it will not make your hair colour fade.
How long do I have to keep the treatment in my hair before washing?
Our treatment can be washed out on the same day! No 72 hour wait like traditional keratin treatments. We offer an aftercare shampoo and conditioner to maintain the longevity of your treatment however you’re welcome to use your own sulfate-free shampoo as well.
How often can I get the Keratin Treatment or Hair Botox treatment done?
As often as you'd like! Our treatment lasts up to 6 months however you're more than welcome to complete another treatment earlier than that
How much does it cost?
Our prices vary depending on the length of your hair and more information can be found about this under Hair Length Guide on our website
