It isn't up to the Keratin

Many girls who have naturally curly, wavy, or frizzy hair have started looking into getting keratin treatments at their local hair salons.

Keratin is naturally found in "fibrous structural protein of hair, nails, horn, hoofs, wool, feathers, and of the epithelial cells in the outermost layers of the skin" In this post I will be focusing on Keratin in hair.


It is the addition of more keratin to ones hair that makes the "keratin treatment" so worth the expense. Yes, keratin treatments are very expensive (ranging from $200-$400) but it is most definitely worth it. Although during the 90 minutes process (give or take depending on the length of your hair), it is not the product that decides whether it will be beneficial to your hair's strength. To summarize New York dermatologist Neil Sadick, MD beliefs, he simply explains that the amount of time the treatment lasts all depends on the straightening iron used to seal the treatment you first got.

Keratin treatments not only save the hair particles from undergoing as much damage as they normally would but also saves time. It shortens your time blow drying your hair by 40-60 percent and with that takes the blasting heat off of the hair particles for that amount of time too. Hand in hand with that, the amount of time, and degree of heat of straightening your hair is also shortened.

Keratin treatments help control hair that at times may seem like it is unable to be tamed. I have not gotten one of these treatments, but after doing research on it, it seems to be something I may want to do in the near future. I have naturally curly hair that frizzes without product. To make getting ready easier, getting a keratin treatment can help! Would you pay the expense?
