Keratin Complex

by Casey Saumure

What is a Keratin Complex Smoothing Treatment?  Also known under the trade name ‘Brazilian Blowout’?  Simply, a hair straightening system.  Brazilian Blowout is a brand name, in the way that Kleenex is a tissue.  The system we use is called Keratin Complex Smoothing Therapy™ | Infusion Therapy.  Keratin Complex will eliminate the frizz while retaining your natural wave and curls.  Compared to permanent  Japanese Hair Straightening which will remove ALL of the curl and wave until your hair grows out

Here are some frequently asked questions about Keratin Complex:

Q: Can hair be colored before the treatment?

A: Yes! A great time to have the treatment done would be directly after permanent color, semi-permanent or highlights. The treatment will extend the life and seal the color in, leaving it vibrant, however, for demi-gloss or toners have color done 3-5 days after treatment for optimal results.

Q: Can the treatment be done on chemically treated hair, previously relaxed or straightened hair?

A: YES, It is recommended to wait two weeks between any chemical services and adjust iron temperature based on hair type as listed in instructions.

Q: How many days after the treatment before the hair can get wet or be washed?

A: You must wait 3 days (72 hours) before washing your hair or swimming.

Q: Can the hair be pulled back or clipped up during the 72-hour waiting period?

A: No. The hair should not have any impressions made by using bands or clips.

Q: What should be done if the hair gets wet during the 72-hour waiting period?

A: Blow the hair dry and flat iron with medium to low heat immediately.

Q: Is the re-application of the treatment done on the entire head or just on the new growth?

A:  We  re-apply to the entire head as the build-up of keratin can only improve, not harm, the hair.

Q: How long will the treatment last?

A: The treatment lasts 3 months, with proper home care.  Clients should use only sulfate-free products during after-care.

A word of warning about Formaldehyde.  Through our own research we found, that any product that produces a significant result in the hair lasting over a long period of time, is going to contain chemicals.  Just like hair color.  While many claim to be ‘Formaldehyde Free’, they produce a chemical reaction when applied.  We like this particular brand because the fumes and smell are considerably less than the others.  In addition, our cost is lower, so we can pass savings on to our clients.  All with the same or better results- which are excellent.   Any of these products when applied carefully by a licensed professional and with proper ventilation, should be as safe as hair color.
