Keratin Hair Treatment for Curly Frizzy Hair

One of life’s paradoxes: Women with gorgeous curly or wavy hair are envious of women with silky straight hair and vice versa. What gives? I have naturally straight hair with a hint of wavy and I’ve always admired women with curly locks. They’re so bouncy and flirty, how can you not like them? Yet, I constantly have girls telling me how much they love my smooth flowy hair. Don’t get me wrong, I do too! However, a little curl wouldn’t hurt 😉

So for those ladies who are tired of their curly hair and the frizz that goes along with it, there’s a special treatment…and it’s called KERATIN.

What is Keratin Straightening?

Keratin is a protein that is found in our hair follicles. It helps fill in the gaps of dry or cracked hair. Now if you mix it with a chemical called formaldehyde and run a hot flat iron through it, then your hair will become straight and will actually stay that way. For how long? Usually it lasts up to three months. Although it depends on how quickly your hair grows out. Because the hair that does grow out will of course look like your natural hair since it wasn’t keratin straightened. The good news is that you can go for maintenance or use a hair product if your hair is easily manageable. In terms of price, in most places, the average cost of having your hair straightened is $300. At Euphora Salon & Medi Spa, the price starts at $150 and goes up depending on the length of your hair. So you don’t have to worry about dishing out the big bucks…unless of course your hair is like Rapunzel’s. Can you color your hair after the treatment? Yes. However, we recommend doing so before you get the treatment. This is because the keratin straightening will help seal in the color.

How to maintain your new ‘do.

For some this may come as good news, and for others not so much. Ready? You can’t wash your hair for 3 days after receiving the treatment. This may mean calling out of work for some of you. The reason is that the solution takes some time to really start working. Also, if you’ve ever seen sulfate-free shampoos in a local drug store, then go back and invest in it. They cost about the same as any other shampoo. The only difference is that sulfate-free shampoos will protect your hair and will not strip the treatment off your new gorgeous hair. We recommend using Chroma Sensitive by Kerastase (can be purchased at Euphora Salon & Medi Spa). It is often used with color treated hair since it’s sulfate-free!

Before you go for a Keratin Hair Straightening, make sure you look into the formaldehyde factor. If you have a certain scalp condition, then this treatment may not be for you. Just do your research so that you come prepared. Knowledge is power 😉

Stubborn Stubble: Pros and Cons to Laser Hair Removal

“I just shaved my legs yesterday…did it grow out overnight?!”

I don’t know about you but I’ve been bothered by this question often. You just shaved and the next day, BAM!! Five o’clock shadow and you’re not even man. What gives? Although everyone is different, shaved hair of any kind tends to go grow back quickly. It’s like that game of “Whack-a-Mole”…they just keep coming back! If you are tired of shaving/waxing/bleaching so often, then maybe you can look into laser hair removal. This procedure is safe and can be used on virtually any area of hair growth, such as face, abdomen, underarms, bikini, back, legs, etc. Before you put yourself under a laser, however, it is good to know the Pro’s & Con’s.

PRO’S

  • 98-99% Permanent Results–gets rid of all hair (with a possible exception if a couple strays that can be plucked/shaved).
  • More efficient than waxing–if you calculate how many times in your life you will get any body part waxed and multiply it by the price of the procedure, then there is a huge chance that removing it with a laser will be more cost efficient.

CON’S

  • Cost–laser hair removal can appear costly to some people. However, many find that never having to deal with unwanted hair again, outweight the cost. Besides, thin of how much you are currently spending on shaving cream, razors, waxing, threading, etc.
  • Number of treatments–although the number of treatments required depends on the area of the body as well as the person, on average, you can expect about 5-6 treatments.
  • Mild Pain–some people are more pain tolerant than others. Most patients, however, find this procedure to be less painful than other hair removal procedures.

Pre-bonded hair extensions are pieces of hair with a small amount of bonding glue that is applied to the base of the extensions. These are sometimes called pre-glued hair extensions or pre-tipped hair extensions. Most of our pre-bonded human hair extensions use a keratin glue which is designed for maximum holding power.
