Keratin Complex Treatments
What is Keratin?
Keratin is a protein found naturally in skin, hair and nails in addition to other sources. In human hair it acts both as an external protective shield and an internal structural protein. Keratin is the first thing depleted when hair is damaged physically, chemically or from environmental factors such as the sun.
What Does Keratin Do?
Keratin Complex's signature keratin is comparable to the keratin present in human hair. When used in product formulations, keratin helps condition, strengthen, revitalize and repair damage. Keratin gives the hair shine, elasticity and a more youthful, healthy appearance.
What causes frizz?
Healthy hair contains proteins (including keratin), water and lipids that work to moisturize and keep strands smooth and strong. With age and damage due to sun an denvironmental exposure, the hair loses some of these vital components, making it drier and more porous. To compensate, the hair absorbs excess moisture from the air (especially in high-humidity environments) causing the cuticle to swell, and thus, producing frizz.
Keratin Complex products and services replenish Keratin to help seal the cuticle and prevent humidity from entering the hair.
Do Keratin Complex Keratin Treatments Straighten Hair?
Keratin Complex Smoothing Therapy treatments are not straightening treatments. Smoothing Therapy treatments reduce curl patterns in curly, wavy or unruly hair, thus providing a straightening effect without permanently changing the structure of the hair. In addition to being easier to maintain after treatment, your hair will have the versatility to be styled curly, wavy or straight as desired.
It is important to discuss your goals with one of our professional stylists at Utopia to understand the overall results you can expect to achieve with a Smoothing Therapy treatment.
How long will my treatment results last?
Treatment longevity may vary depending on the selected treatment, your individual lifestyle, and your at-home maintenance regimen. Natural Keratin Smoothing Treatment and Natural Keratin Smoothing Treatment for Blonde Hair deliver results that last up to three to five months; Express Blow OUt results last up to six weeks; and Advanced Glycolic Smoothing System results last up to three months. Consistent use of Keratin Complex keratin-enhanced products, including our collection of sodium chloride-free and sulphate-free shampoos and conditioners, will help prolong the results of your treatment.
