Unmanageable hair can be frustrating and time-consuming to style, especially in the morning. For many men, achieving the desired look can be challenging due to issues like frizz, dryness, and unmanageable curls. That’s where keratin hair treatment comes in.

To Keratin or Not to Keratin?

If you’ve ever struggled with frizz in your hair, chances are you’ve considered a keratin treatment as a possible solution. However, not all chemical treatments are suitable for every hair type and choosing the wrong one can lead to disappointment or permanent hair damage. 

CG Barbershop is here to guide you through the process and provide all the information you need to know before getting a keratin hair treatment.

What is Keratin Treatment?

Keratin treatment is a way to make hair smoother and easier to style. It involves putting a keratin solution on your hair and using a flat iron to seal it in. This will make your hair less frizzy and more manageable. It can help men with curly or frizzy hair get a smoother hairstyle. This treatment also helps repair damaged hair by adding protein into your hair follicles. The treatment lasts for several months and depends on how often you wash your hair and the shampoo you use.

How Is It Used?

This treatment starts off with washing and drying the hair thoroughly. Then, the keratin solution is applied to the hair section by section, starting from the roots and working towards the ends. The treatment is then left on for around 30 minutes, and then blow-dried until completely dry. The hair is then flat ironed to seal in the keratin, which makes the hair smoother and shinier. The entire process can take a few hours, depending on the hair’s length and thickness. It’s important to avoid washing your hair after getting a keratin treatment to allow the keratin to fully set in. Using sulfate-free shampoos and conditioners can also help prolong the treatment’s effects.

Keratin treatments can be especially beneficial for men with curly or frizzy hair, as it can help to tame the hair and reduce frizz, making it more manageable and easier to style. The treatment can also help to repair damaged hair by adding protein back into the hair shaft and improve overall hair health.

How To Maintain Your Keratin-Treated Hair After Leaving the Barbershop

Maintaining your hair after getting a keratin treatment is important in ensuring that your hair stays healthy and smooth. Here are some CG Barbershop tips on how to maintain your keratin-treated hair after leaving the barbershop:

• Avoid washing your hair for at least 72 hours after the treatment: To allow the keratin to fully bond with your hair, it is important to avoid washing your hair for at least 72 hours after the treatment. By doing so, the treatment can last longer, and the keratin stays locked in.

• Use a sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner: Sulfates can strip the keratin from your hair, so it’s important to use a sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner that is specifically designed for keratin-treated hair. Your barber at CG can advise you on suitable products for your hair type.

• Avoid using hair products that contain alcohol: Products that contain alcohol can dry out your hair and reduce the effectiveness of the treatment. So, if you want the effects of the treatment to last, it’s best to avoid using hair products that contain alcohol.

• Use a wide-toothed comb to detangle your hair: Brushes can cause breakage and damage to your hair, so it’s recommended to use a wide-toothed comb to detangle your hair gently. This will help to keep your hair healthy and prevent breakage.

• Get regular trims: Regular trims will help to remove any split ends and keep your hair healthy. This will also help to prolong the effects of the keratin treatment and keep your hair looking great.

By following these simple tips, you can maintain your keratin-treated hair and keep it looking healthy and smooth for longer.
