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 😉

Ultra Cavitation: For the places that diet and exercise couldn’t reach!

You’ve dieted. You’ve exercised. You’ve sat on the couch and thought about doing both of those things. Whatever situation you may be in, you are thinking of a certain area(s) on your body RIGHT NOW that you wish was tighter, firmer, and/or not as filled with cellulite. I get it. We’ve all been there.

What’s the solution? Many of you have tried steam rooms to lose a few centimeters, but once you drink a bottle of water it’s back to square one. Perhaps you are considering liposuction. Yet, when you weigh your options of needle vs. something else less painful, the “something else less painful” always wins. Well, for people like us, there is thankfully another option! Ultrasonic Cavitation.

Ultra Cavitation, to sum it up, is the process of using Tri Polar Radio Frequency to heat target areas of the body in order to rapture fat cell membrane, which in turn eliminates fat content. A hand held ultra cavitation device is rubbed over the skin’s surface causing the fat cells in the desired area to heat up and transform into a water soluble liquid. Ultra cavitation is the latest and most effective cellulite reduction and local fat loss technology to significantly burn fat and reduce cellulite available. Ultra cavitation treatment is not a miracle cure, but if you suffer from cellulite or if you want a non-surgical solution to re-sculpt your body and reduce local fat deposits, it is one of the best treatments you can possibly use.

Generally, you can expect to lose up to 3cm per treatment. However, results will depend on the number of treatments (which is usually 10), how cleansed your body is prior to the treatment, and your lifestyle before and after the treatment. We strongly advise drinking plenty of fluids and doing something active such as brisk walking to ensure the results “lock in” so to speak. In addition, participants may want to look into getting a pneumatic massage that will aid in excess fluid elimination and blood circulation improvement.

It is suggested that people with a slow lymphatic system (the one in charge of drainage and keeping body fluid levels in balance) detox and cleanse their body before starting treatment. A great detox system you may wish to try is Zrii Purify, which is available at Euphora Salon & Medi Spa.

Ultra Cavitation is an easy and safe method of eliminating the flab that you constantly jiggle when you look in the mirror. No incisions. No recovery. Immediate results. It helps you lose inches, improve blood circulation, and even tightens the skin, which is exactly what we want!
