Straightening vs. Smoothing
Keratin Complex Smoothing Therapy is different. Conventional straighteners or relaxers may break the protein bonds within the hair’s structure, causing each strand to reform into a permanently straight shape.
Keratin Complex’s revolutionary technology does not break the hair’s bonds, instead delivering the versatility of smoother, healthier-looking hair that can be styled wavy or straight as desired.
Keratin Complex’s signature keratin works effectively on all hair types. Our unique Smoothing Therapy treatments contain high concentrations of keratin that penetrate throughout the hair structure, and then are sealed within the cortex to repair damage.
How Smoothing Therapy Works
Though there are differences in formulations and protocols between the various Smoothing Therapy treatments, the basic smoothing process is the same.
Four Steps To Smoother Hair:
1The pre-treatment step removes surface buildup and prepares the cuticle, lifting its overlapping layers to allow the treatment to penetrate the hair.
2During application, the keratin treatment penetrates into the hair's cuticle. Hydrolyzed keratin strengthens keratin bonds from within, helps repair damage, and smoothes the hair shaft.
3Keratin and additional conditioning agents help nourish and strengthen the hair, while restoring smoothness and shine.
4The hair shape is further adjusted with the assistance of heat—first with a blow-dryer and finally with a flat iron. This final step helps seal in the treatment to create a humidity-resistant finish.
