Frequently Asked Questions




Keratin Express
Intense Smoothing Therapy

By replenishing lost keratin, our professional treatments help repair damage, lock out humidity to reduce unwanted frizz, and give the hair increased manageability and styling versatility.


Let's start with the basics...... 

What is keratin?

A critical protein found naturally in skin, hair and nails.  It serves both as an external protective shield and an internal structural protein.  It’s the first thing depleted when hair is damaged physically, chemically or from environmental factors such as the sun.

What does keratin do?

Comparable to the keratin present in human hair, when used in product formulations, keratin helps condition, strengthen, revitalize and repair damage.

What causes frizz?

Healthy hair contains proteins, water and lipids that work to moisturize and keep strands strong and smooth.

With age and damage due to sun and environmental exposure, the hair loses some of these vital components, making it drier and more porous. To compensate, the hair absorbs excess moisture from the air (especially in high-humidity environments), causing the cuticle to swell and thus, producing frizz.

Our services replenish keratin to help seal the cuticle and prevent humidity from entering the hair.


Smoothing Therapy Treatments


What is a Smoothing Therapy treatment?

After a Smoothing Therapy treatment, it’s easier to achieve a flawless blowout at home: The hair is more manageable, blow-drying becomes quicker and easier, and daily styling time is significantly  reduced.

What in-salon smoothing services does Keratin Complex offer?

Keratin Complex offers smoothing solutions for every hair type that cater to the desired result, cost, longevity, waiting period and time in-salon.

We recommend that you first undergo a consultation with our BE team to decide which treatment is best for you.

Two Treatments:

1. Natural Keratin Smoothing Treatment: our signature smoothing treatment that delivers the longest-lasting results.

2. Express Blow Out: the speedy smoothing solution that delivers smoother hair without the wait. We traditionally add this at the end of a color service - and takes only 15 minutes in additonal time.  

Does it straighten the hair?

Smoothing Therapy treatments are not straightening treatments. It reduces curl patterns, wavy or unruly hair, thus providing a straightening effect without permanently changing the structure of the hair. In addition to being easier to maintain after treatment, your hair will have the versatility to be styled curly, wavy or straight as desired.

How soon before or after a treatment can I color or lighten my hair?

Hair may be lightened or colored on the same day that a Smoothing Therapy treatment is performed

How long will my treatment results last?

Treatment longevity may vary depending on the selected treatment, your individual lifestyle, and your at-home maintenance regimen.

-Express Blow Out results last up to six weeks.

-A original Smoothing System results last up to three months.

-Consistent use of Keratin Complex keratin-enhanced services can overlap, build and prolong the results of your treatment.

When can I shampoo after a Keratin treatment?

To promote the longest-lasting results, Natural Keratin Smoothing Treatment and Natural Keratin Smoothing Treatment for Blonde Hair require a 72-hour waiting period before shampooing. After an Express Blow Out treatment, we recommend a waiting period of at least eight hours before shampooing.

How much does a Smoothing Therapy treatment cost?

Prices depend on a variety of factors, including the selected treatment, the density and length of the hair.
