What does a keratin treatment actually do? Keratin treatments fill in the porosity of your hair, as overly-porous hair causes tangles, frizz, and breakage. Your hair is made up of keratin, so the treatment is putting the protein back into the hair, which is often lost due to age and chemical services.
Just like ombre highlights, strobing and contouring, keratin treatments are yet another topic that stays trending in the beauty world, and if one of your friends has ever tried it out, chances are, she can’t stop talking about the magic it worked on her hair. If blowing out your strands feels more like playing tug-of-war, you could benefit from its smoothing results, though the variety of at-home versions can make the world of keratin slightly harder to navigate. Here’s everything you need to know before getting the treatment, and most importantly, how to keep it. First things first, determine if your hair type is right for the service—curly and frizzy textures will see the most benefits, whereas fine, straight strands should avoid it altogether.
