Here at The Smoothbar we are often asked about doing treatments for our client’s children. So in this post we wanted to help clear some things up about Smoothing Treatments and young hair.
Is it Safe?
Smoothing Treatments have gotten a bad rap for being “harsh chemical processes” by some in the industry. But the truth is that a properly done smoothing treatment is no more of a chemical process than coloring your hair. With proper technique, ventilation and quality stylist a smoothing treatment is perfectly safe for every client.
As for being safe on the hair, Smoothing Treatments are specifically designed to repair damage and protect your hair. Keratin is a naturally occurring protein in our hair, nails and skin that can break down over time. Keratin Treatments replenish hair with this protein providing healthier stronger hair that shines. See our blog post here on Keratin Treatments and How They Work.
What ages will we do treatments for?
Here at the Smoothbar we have clients as young as 10 years old that get regular treatments. If your child is able to safely sit in the chair while the stylist uses a hlt flat iron we can help. Many of out stylist have children of their own and understand how to make it an enjoyable experience for your child.
How Can it help parents and children?
Mornings are rough for all of us, parents and children alike, but if your child had unruly hair it can make the mornings much more stressful for both of you. Here at The Smoothbar we are always happy to hear our clients brag about how this added burden has been lifted once their child has manageable hair. After a Smoothing Treatment there is no more leaving for school with tear stained faces from the morning hair struggle. Children are able to be more independent in their hair care and parents are able to style without the struggle.
If you have a child with unruly hair that makes your mornings stressful, meet with one of our highly trained stylist today and see how we can help you and your child enjoy hair care again.
