Keratin is the main protein in hair, skin and nails. It makes up to 91 percent of hair and contains 16 different amino acids, with cysteine being the most important one as it creates the sulphur bridges in hair that give it its internal strength.
If your natural keratin levels are low, your hair can appear dry, frizzy, dehydrated and damaged, which is where the man-made treatment comes in.
Keratin treatments are a term used to describe a hair-smoothing treatment that uses keratin. A keratin treatment is a semi-permanent chemical smoothing treatment which can smooth hair, add shine and eliminate frizz for up to six months. It works by forming a coating over the hair to mimic smoothness and shine.
Keratin isn’t the main ingredient in the treatment. Hair cannot accept more than around one per cent extra keratin in a treatment without losing the moisture-protein balance. This balance is essential for the hair to retain its strength, suppleness and malleability.
Therefore most keratin treatments use other sources of protein to repair the hair including corn, vegetable, soy and wheat. But to really create that smooth, sleek and shiny finish, in-salon keratin treatments rely on more than just proteins.
People often associate keratin treatments with straightening, and while it does do this, modern formulas are based on rebuilding and strengthening the hair just as much.
Ideally this treatment is designed for those with curly, wavy, frizzy or unruly hair.
Starting with a cleansing shampoo the product is applied to rough dried hair, then blow dried in and lastly flat ironed to seal the treatment into your hair cuticle.
This will depend on your hair type, and your hair maintenance.
If maintained correctly our keratin treatment can last up to 3-5 months. The process usually takes 90 minutes depending of your hair length and thickness.
After having the Fabriq treatment applied you should not wash your hair for 48 hours after the process; the longer the treatment is left the better the results. Head Office recommends using L’Oreal Professional Inoa shampoo and conditioner to keep your newly smooth, frizz free hair looking its best for the longest length of time possible.
