If you’ve been dealing with unruly or frizzy hair, you could benefit from a hair smoothing treatment. Our smoothing keratin treatments provide many great benefits like strength, health, shine, frizz reduction, manageability, and reduction in blow-dry time. But what does the keratin smoothing treatment process look like? It looks like this:

Our Treatment Process

To start the process, a professional hairstylist shampoos your hair with Cezanne Clarifying Shampoo. Then, if you get a Classic or Ultimate Blonde Keratin Smoothing Treatment, the next step is a thorough blow dry followed by applying the treatment. If you receive a Cezanne Express Keratin Smoothing Treatment or an Instant Frizz Eliminator Smoothing Spray application, your stylist will shampoo your hair with Cezanne Clarifying Shampoo, then apply the product on damp hair.

The service and processing times vary between each treatment and length and density of the hair. Once the treatment has processed, your stylist will rinse, blow dry, and flat iron the hair to seal the treatment. Once they blow dry and flat iron your hair to seal the treatment in, your smoothing keratin treatment is complete.

Does a Smoothing Treatment Straighten Your Hair?

No, a Cezanne Keratin Smoothing Treatment does not work like traditional formaldehyde-based straighteners or relaxers. While the flat ironing at the end of the process temporarily straightens your hair, the treatment itself does not break the bonds of your hair the way traditional relaxers or straighteners do. Instead, our treatments use natural, non-toxic ingredients like sericin and keratin to rebuild damaged hair and promote health, shine, manageability, and frizz reduction that tames unruly hair. This allows you the OPTION to love your curl without frizz one day, and smooth without frizz until shampooed again.

Do Cezanne Keratin Treatments Contain Formaldehyde?

No. Our Keratin Smoothing Treatments are formaldehyde-free, so you and your stylist don’t have to worry about any toxins in the treatments. You and your stylist can feel comfortable as Cezanne Keratin Smoothing Treatments are 100% safe and do not emit formaldehyde or toxins during or after treatment applications.

Keratin Smoothing Treatment Aftercare

How should you care for your hair after you receive a Cezanne Keratin Smoothing Treatment? Some keratin smoothing treatments force you to wait 24 to 48 hours or longer before you can shampoo, dry, or style your hair, but Cezanne does not. Not only are Cezanne Keratin Smoothing Treatments safe and toxin-free, but there is no downtime after application!! You can exercise, color, shampoo, style, put your hair in a ponytail, cap, ANYTHING you want!! NO restrictions, no wait, no downtime!! AND we offer a variety of incredible home care products that will not only extend the life of your Cezanne Keratin Smoothing Treatment but help you manage whatever styling options you choose!
