If you’ve heard about keratin smoothing treatments, you may have questions about them. Are they safe? Do keratin treatments only work on curly hair, or will they also work on straight hair? We can answer all these questions for you and bust any myths you’ve heard about hair smoothing treatments.

What is a Pro Keratin Hair Treatment?

A professional keratin smoothing treatment is a salon treatment your stylist applies on your hair. When your stylist applies a Cezanne Keratin Smoothing Treatment, the proprietary active ingredients, sericin and keratin work together to provide a cement-like strength in the cortex of the hair, giving hair strength, health, shine, manageability, frizz reduction and reduction in blowdry time.

Is a Keratin Treatment Bad for Your Hair?

No. Cezanne Keratin Smoothing Treatments will strengthen and smooth your hair. They are not hair straightening or relaxing treatments, so they don’t break your hair’s bonds and force you to give up your hair’s natural texture. Additionally, all Cezanne Keratin Smoothing Treatments are formaldehyde-free and toxin-free, so stylists can apply them safely in the salon without worrying about risking clients’ health or risking exposure to harsh chemicals. Our treatments have a low pH with an acidity similar to that of lemon juice, so our keratin treatments are safe for hair and for handling without gloves.

How Long Does the Keratin Last in Your Hair?

How long our treatments’ keratin lasts in your hair depends on which treatment you get. For example, our Classic and Ultimate Blonde treatments last for up to five months. Our Express treatment lasts for up to ten weeks, and our Instant Frizz Eliminator Smoothing Spray lasts for up to six weeks. Stylists take several factors into account when determining the perfect Cezanne Smoothing Keratin Treatment for their client: Lifestyle, hair porosity, hair density, damage level, time constraints.

How Long Should Clients Wait After Treatment to Restart Their Daily Hair Routines?

Many keratin treatments require clients to wait several days to wash their hair, wear a ponytail or hat, or blow dry or flat iron their hair. You can do ANYTHING after receiving a Cezanne Keratin Smoothing Treatment! You can shampoo, blow dry, and style your hair immediately after receiving one of our treatments. You can resume your normal activities and routines immediately post-treatment, no matter what your lifestyle is.

Which Hair Types Are Best Suited to Keratin Treatments?

Often, stylists apply smoothing keratin treatments to textured or curly hair to reduce frizz and damage, but they can also apply them to straight, wavy, frizzy, or damaged hair. We’ve developed different keratin smoothing treatments for every hair type.

Our Classic treatment is for any type of hair including textured or curly hair. Our Express treatment is designed to fit all hair types, and our Ultimate Blonde treatment contains blue-violet pigments to tone color-treated blonde hair. The Ultimate Blonde treatment also works on textured, curly, and straight hair. We provide educational materials to help stylists determine which treatments to apply to their clients’ hair, and we encourage clients to consult with their stylists before receiving one of our treatments.
