Keratin Complex Smoothing Therapy

Smoothing Therapy FAQ's

Q: What is Keratin Complex Natural Keratin Smoothing Treatment?

A: It is a specially formulated revitalizing and rejuvenating treatment for the hair that reduces frizz and curl. The advanced patent-pending formulation restores and restructures hair by infusing a special blend of natural keratin deep into the cuticle. The keratin is bonded into the cuticle by the heat of the flat iron to relax the hair’s sub-cuticle layer.

A: Time should be determined on an individual basis. It is recommended that you screen each client by asking about their hair length, type and texture. Please allow a 2 to 3 hour window.

A: The hair will be more manageable and take much less time to style. It will be noticeably softer and straighter, with added life and shine as well as a lengthened look.
