Keratin Treatment

Why should you have a Keratin treatment done?

Keratin is a fibrous structural protein that forms the main building block of various tissues in the human body, most notably found in our hair, nails and skin. It is a key component responsible for providing strength, structure and protection to these tissues.

Keratin treatments are designed to improve the overall health and appearance of hair, particularly for individuals dealing with frizz, dryness and damage. The keratin used in keratin hair products can help fill in the gaps in the hairs cuticle, smoothing out the surface and making it resilient to external factors such as humidity and heat.

What treatment is best for you?

At Access Hair we use the brand Alfaparf Milano and offer the following treatments:

Keratin Precision and Express Method

This three hour treatment will smooth out and eliminate frizz. Results last 4-6 months after the first treatment and will last longer as the treatment is repeated. We recommend this treatment for coarse thick hair that is untamable, and also for people who wear their hair straight, at the same time this treatment is not a permanent straightening solution.

Keratin Discipline Treatment Method

The Discipline treatment method will achieve frizzless hair that is easy to style and manage while also adding a brilliant shine to your hair, is suitable for people who want to keep the natural wave or curl in their hair while also eliminating frizz and being able to style their hair effortlessly. The treatment will take two hours and last 8-12 weeks the first time, lasting longer every time you have it done.

Keratin Lamination Treatment

This method is great for people with fine, damaged hair or for someone that has had a surgery or been on medication that affects the health of the hair.

What should you do after a Keratin treatment?

The Keratin treatment aftercare is crucial! things like using the wrong shampoo or conditioner or exposing your hair to salt water can slowly strip the treatment out of your hair, returning it to its natural state. A test was conducted on the Lisse Design Precision Method Treatment to see how long the treatment would last, results showed that the maintenance shampoo and conditioner helped results last up to four months after the first treatment.

Things to avoid:

  • Chlorine
  • Salt water
  • Hair products containing sodium chloride, parabens and sulphates
  • Prolonged sun exposure and use a UV protectant
