Keratin Treatments FAQ

Having questions about our signature Brazilian Blowout treatment or any other keratin treatment that we offer? Read below to get your most commonly asked questions answered by the Smoothbar team!

Keratin based smoothing treatments are very healthy for the hair and can help repair and replenish the hair with keratin bonds that will actually make the hair stronger and healthier. You can also achieve up to 3 levels of curl reduction with a keratin based treatment. Keratin based treatments are also temporary meaning that it will wash out of your hair eventually, much like hair color. You can never overdo keratin treatments either because the hair will take what it needs, and excess will just wash off. Permanent straighteners like relaxers and Japanese Straighteners are extremely damaging to the hair. They work by permanently internally changing the hair structure by breaking the bonds of your hair to achieve a straight look. You cannot have this service done if you have already damaged or pre-lightened hair as it will just fry off your hair from the chemicals. Because the hair that it is applied to is permanently stretched out; when your hair grows you will have a harsh line where your natural hair comes in and the straightener begins. If you also apply straightener on already straightened pieces, it will break off your hair.

Of course, it will help loosen the curls and tame unwanted frizz after only one application. Results will last for up to 3 months. You will notice that your hair is softer, frizz and tangle free. Depending on your hair texture and curl pattern you can get up to 3 levels of curl reduction with each treatment.

Yes, absolutely. Any service offered in a professional salon can be combined with Brazilian Blowout or keratin treatments.

If this happens during a downtime (48 – 72 hours after a treatment depending on the treatment) simply use a blow dryer on the hottest setting and a brush to get it out. If you have a ceramic plated flat iron DO NOT use it during the downtime as it will pull the keratin out. Leaving a kink or bend in the hair can potentially mean that it will be in your hair as long as the treatment is in. If this happens after a downtime then just style your hair like normal.

A keratin treatment simply washes out and does not grow out, so you shouldn’t have to worry about this type of problem. It will look natural and have a natural fade out.

You will be able to say “Goodbye” to dryness and to the damages your hair has suffered in the past. Remember that Keratin is the natural protein that is found in our hair, skin, and nails. It will get rid of any frizz and can reduce the curl in your hair up to 3 levels, but you can also choose a treatment that will leave all natural curl in your hair and just get rid of frizz.

It should take between 2 to 3 hours depending on the treatment and how much hair you have.
