Keratin hair treatments from Fabi’s Hair Studio are an excellent way to get your hair straightened effectively, by professionals. Compared to other types of hair straightening methods, our Kips Bay salon believes you will be completely satisfied with the results you can achieve using keratin hair treatments.
Here’s how it works: our highly skilled and experienced hair expert will apply keratin-a to your hair and then seal it with the heat of a flat iron. Keratin-a is a natural protein that is found in everyone’s hair. The time needed will depend upon the individual and the length of your hair, but in general you should figure about 1 1/2 hours. Keratin hair treatments from our Kips Bay salon come with many benefits. For one, your treatment will last as long as 2 1/2 months. Also, your hair won’t be frizzy after the treatment. Even if you get caught in some light rain outside, your hair will remain straight. The treatment also makes your hair stronger, fortifying the hair shaft for greater resilience.
Some things you should know about keratin hair treatments is that they do use formaldehyde. It binds with the keratin to make your hair stronger and keep it straight longer. There is some controversy regarding the safety of formaldehyde as used in the treatment. We tell you this to make sure you are fully aware of the plusses and potential minuses of the process. It does yield outstanding results and our Kips Bay salon is pleased to offer it as an option.
After your treatment has been completed, do not wash your hair for 3 to 4 days afterward to allow the solution to set in. When you do begin to wash again, use a shampoo that is sodium-sulfate free to keep your hair looking straight and fantastic. Call our Kips Bay salon today to make an appointment. We’re here 7 days per week for your convenience.
