Frizz-Proof Your Curls with a Keratin Treatment

June 14, 2022

For most people when they hear someone talk about keratin treatments their first thoughts are straight, smooth hair. And while it’s true that a keratin treatment can be used to straighten strands, straight is not your only option. You can straighten your curls if you want, but keratin treatments can also simply smooth and frizz-proof your curls. And like most other hair treatments, this one is great for guys and gals alike.

What Causes Curls to Frizz?

Curly hair tends to be somewhat coarser than other hair types and usually has a rougher cuticle. The cuticle is made up of overlapping cells that resemble fish scales whose job is to protect the delicate inner portion of the hair. When hair with a rough or damaged cuticle is exposed to excessive humidity the cuticle expands giving hair that fluffy, frizzy appearance.

How Does Keratin Help?

Your hair is made up mostly of keratin. Heat styling, chemical processing, and other environmental factors can damage the keratin leaving gaps in your cuticle. This weakens your hair, causes it to knot and tangle, and leaves it more vulnerable to humidity and frizz. This is a bigger problem for porous, curly hair than any other hair type. Keratin treatments infuse your strands with keratin, filling in gaps and bonding a protective barrier to the outside to strengthen, smooth, and seal your curls. Vital moisture and nutrients are locked in, and frizz-causing humidity is locked out.

How Long Does It Last?

A keratin treatment provides long-lasting results. You can typically expect your curls to remain smooth and frizz-free for around three months, but with proper care, some find it lasts up to five months. It will vary depending on your unique hair type, growth pattern, and care routine. Your stylist can offer you tips and products from our Cezanne hair care line to help you get the best results and longest life out of your treatment.

Can I Really Keep My Curl?

Yes, you can really keep your gorgeous curls. This process will always result in a little relaxation of curl, but that will make your hair even easier to manage. This treatment can be customized to meet your needs, so consult with your stylist to make sure that you are able to keep the level of curl you desire.
