What is Keratin Hair Treatment?

Onyx Salon Stylist, Michele Massis has been helping clients transform their hard to manage hair into a silky, smooth & straight look by utilizing this Keratin by Coppola treatment. Below, Michele has provided answers addressing client’s top questions regarding Keratin by Coppola treatment.

Who is the ideal candidate for a Keratin Treatment?
The ideal candidate is the person with wavy to curly and frizzy hair that would like to be able to achieve sleeker, shinier hair while cutting down on style time.

Is the treatment safe to be used on color treated or highlighted hair?
Yes, it is completely safe on color treated hair. Unlike many other straightening systems, it is also safe to be used on highlighted hair.

Will I still be able to curl my hair with a curling iron?
Yes, following the treatment you can still use a curling iron to style your hair.  In the first few weeks after your treatment, the style may fall out quicker. As the treatment wears out, it will begin to hold a curl longer.

How often will I need to get my Keratin done?
On average, the treatment lasts about 3 months. Clients who wash their hair less frequently may be able to go longer in between treatments.

Will my curly hair be completely straight after a Keratin treatment?
We like to think of the Keratin treatment as a smoothing treatment rather than a straightener. On curly hair, the treatment will greatly reduce the curl pattern, but it will not leave your hair completely stick straight.

What are the aftercare requirements following a Keratin Treatment?
Post treatment, you must use a sulfate free shampoo. This will help prevent the keratin from fading out of your hair.

What should I know when making my appointment?
When booking your appointment, please allow 2-3 hours. Time may vary depending on the length and thickness of your hair. After the treatment, you cannot get any moisture in your hair for 72 hours. If the hair gets wet in any way, you must dry and flatiron it right away. Also during those 72 hours, you cannot put any rubber bands or clips in the hair.

What is the difference between the Keratin and keratin express?
The keratin express is a quicker and lighter version on the original keratin treatment. The process is much quicker and the results will last a shorter amount of time.
