In my 10 years of experience as cosmetologist and business owner, if there is anything my customers complain most about, is their hair being frizzy and that awful feeling like their hair is out of control. Whether is straight or curly, it's always the same story.
No matter how many hours they spend styling their hair, it's a matter of hours before they start losing control and their hair is back to frizz. "It’s like it had a mind of its own!" – (Anonymous client).
When I hear that, I offer the keratin treatment as an alternative to make it easy to stylize and manage their hair. It is most helpful when they go out on vacation or when the weather is humid, or close to the beach, that way they spend more time in the fun, rather than worrying about their hair.
From my experience, let me explain how Keratin works:
Our body naturally produces Keratin (protein), but as time goes by, the production is reduced. Some of the factors that influence this are age, contamination, and lack of hair care eventually becoming thin and fragile.
Keratin helps to strengthen hair, and with the elimination of the frizz effect resulting on well-defined curls, long lasting straightening. It also brings out the natural shine of the hair and minimizes the time spent stylizing. This is an option if you are the type of woman who has to use hot tools like straighteners and others every morning.
The benefits I have seen:
1. Soft hair, without frizz.
2. Your hair will be hydrated and look shiny.
Keratin treatment recommendations:
Consult with your cosmetologist the ingredients contained in the products (prior to the treatment). It is helpful to use Keratin from 1 to 3 times per year based on needs and overall health. As I mentioned above, it helps if you are going on vacation, the summer is coming, and/or you want to make your life easier.
After treatment is applied, it is recommended to avoid washing the hair from 48 to 72 hours and eliminate the use of hair bands, hair clips or bobby pins. The shampoo to use is also crucial, which is important to discuss the products intended to use before/after.
As with any treatment to your hair, every person is unique and different. As a cosmetologist, I offer this treatment as an alternative for my customers. Please be advised that because every individual is unique,results may vary... however in my 10 years of experience, I have never received a complaint or a negative occurrence for any of my customers… I have only experienced positive results and happiness. That’s our goal in Criss Cross Beauty Salon, keep and maintain our customers completely satisfied.
