Keratin Hair Treatments: What to Expect
New keratin-based treatments may save you hours each day.

Longing for smoother, straighter hair? Keratin hair-straightening treatments are a popular option at salons.
If you’re thinking about trying it, you should know this:
• What Is Keratin? It’s a protein that’s naturally in your hair.
• How It Works: A stylist applies a keratin hair-straightening product to your hair and then uses the heat of a flat iron to seal it in. The process takes about 90 minutes or longer, depending on your hair’s length.
• Time-Saving Tresses: If you usually style your hair straight, a keratin hair-straightening treatment could shorten your blow-dry time by 40% to 60%, says hair stylist Henri Borday of New York’s Mizu salon and corporate educator for Global Keratin.
• Farewell, Frizz: You can forget about frizzy hair after treatment. “You could walk out in moist or light rain and your hair won’t change,” Borday says.
• Wait Before You Wash: You shouldn’t wash your hair for three or four days after getting the treatment. That’s because the solution takes time to work, he says.
• Upkeep: After you get a keratin hair treatment, and after the don’t-wash waiting period, you should use sodium-sulfate-free shampoo to help maintain the treatment.
• How Long It Lasts: Expect the results to last two to 2 1/2 months.

“Keratin is more of a restorative treatment,” Borday says. “Even if you have a good hair type, it still strengthens the hair shaft and makes your hair more resilient.”

 

 

Talking Hair Color with Lauren

Lauren: stylist and colorist at Volume Hair Studio

Lauren

What is the latest trend in color?

Platinum blonde is still the biggest trend along with rosy and strawberry tones of gold on darker blondes.  Rich browns with several tones throughout is hot for brunettes.

What do you see being the trend in the fall/winter 2014?

More subtle gradient tones are in; less of the severe ombre of the spring and summer being replaced by the “s’ombre” or subtle ombre.  Plaits (braids) are super in!  They are still great for ‘day dirty hair’.

What sets you apart from other colorists?

I have an artist background, so I tend to think of color as art and a fun extension of oneself.

What color line do you use?

Redken and Pravana

What are the advantages of these color lines?

Redken is great! It’s predictable and offers every color of the rainbow.  Pravana is what I use to do the bright, fun colors and they are long wearing.

What are some helpful hints in caring for creative colors?

You really need to invest in the proper after care; a good color-safe shampoo and moisturizing conditioner.  Most of those colors have to go on lightened hair, so the hair is porous and might need a masque.

Which shampoo and conditioner do you recommend?

We carry Redken, Kevin.Murphy and Pureology.  Redken is great for everyone.  Kevin.Murphy is spa-like, great for maintaining hair quality.  Pureology is reparative and awesome for distressed/damaged hair that needs a little band-aid.

Do creative colors require more up-keep?

Yes!  Those colors are temporary and rinse away with each wash.  Limit your washes and use sulfate free shampoo.
