Q: What is the Keratin Hair Therapy?
A: It is a specially formulated revitalizing and rejuvenating treatment for the hair that eliminates frizz and curl. This treatment restores and restructures hair by infusing a special blend of natural keratin deep into the damaged cuticle. The keratin is bonded into the cuticle by the heat of the flat iron to relax the hair’s sub- cuticle layer.
Q: How much time should I allowed for each treatment?
A: Time can only be determined on an individual basis, it is of course dependent on your hair length, type, density and texture. Please allow a 3 to 4 hours for shoulder length hair, more if your hair is longer.
