This week on the TouchUps Beauty Blog, we’re talking about Coppola Keratin Complex treatments! This is a treatment that we get a TON of questions about, so we hope you guys find this helpful! Let’s get to it.
What is a Keratin?
Keratin itself is a protein that is made up of amino acids, namely cysteine. This protein is a primary component of your hair, skin and nails! Your is 95% keratin, so depletion of this protein is the primary cause of damaged hair. The Coppola Keratin Treatment’s goal is to bring health back into your hair by repairing your hair’s proteins, as well as reducing frizz and keeping your hair easy to style.
Who Needs a Keratin Treatment?
If you have frizzy, overly curly, seemingly unmanageable hair, this treatment is for you! Coppola Keratin Complex treatments are often called smoothing treatments, as the most noticeable effect of the Keratin is the elimination of frizz, but there are SO many more benefits to it. Keratin treatments can help revitalize and restore overly processed hair!
By replenishing the proteins in your hair, Keratin treatments can help you have healthy, silkier, shinier, hair than ever before. If you bleach your hair often and it feels dry, brittle, and frizzy, this treatment can help you too!
Why Should You Get a Keratin Treatment?
We decided to ask one of our stylists why our clients should get Keratin treatments, and here’s what she had to say!
“There are many reason why you should get a Keratin treatment. If you are looking to improve the manageability of your hair and cut your blow drying time in half, a Keratin is for you! If you live in a humid climate and constantly are combating frizz, a Keratin is perfect for you. If you have gone a little overboard on the lightening session, a Keratin will help heal that over processed mane. Ultimately a Keratin treatment has a place in most everyone’s hair care routine! Ask your stylist about getting a Keratin treatment next time you head to the salon.” –Gabrielle Hennessey, stylist at TouchUps Salon in Chandler, AZ.
How Do You Maintain a Keratin Treatment?
A Keratin treatment generally does not require a lot of upkeep, but there are a few things you should do in order to get the most out of your treatment! The first note on Keratin maintenance is for the first 72 hours AFTER your treatment, do NOT get your hair wet. Do not wash your hair, wet it in the shower, or go swimming for the first three days, but after that you can resume your normal hair washing routine!
The second note is to use sulfate FREE shampoo. Most shampoos you buy at the grocery store contain sulfates, which are chemicals that damage your hair. The TouchUps Team recommends Oi shampoo and conditioner by Davines as a fantastic sulfate free hair care set, and we also love the Keratin Color Care shampoo and conditioner set!
There some other awesome Keratin products to keep your hair frizz free, like the Keratin Infusion, which helps lock out humidity and give your hair shine, and the Intense RX, which helps repair damage after just ONE use!
