Possibly one of the most beautiful things in the world is that we’re all so different. Each and every person is a unique specimen. That means that we each have our own features, characters and traits that makes you… well, you.
That said, this applies to your hair type as well. And if you’re naturally born with Kardashian-esque locks well then we applaud you. Not to mention incredibly envious, but that’s a different story. The truth of the matter is that silky smooth, tamable hair is but a distant dream for many. Unattainable in most cases and downright impossible to achieve in others.
Until now. Allow us to introduce you to ‘Keratin’ treatment, the hair treatment that has been taking over the world by storm. Some of you may know it inside out, others a little on the surface and still some others are absolutely clueless about it. We hope to clear it out for you, as comprehensively as we can. So if you’ve been contemplating on getting a keratin treatment done at some point, then this might be useful for you.
First of all, it’s important to understand what the word keratin means. In short, keratin is a substance that is naturally found in your hair, skin and nails. It’s what keeps them strong, healthy, shiny, and easy to maintain. However, due to external causes such as environmental factors, chemical treatments and other unhealthy influences, you are stripped off this keratin. This leaves your hair dull, lifeless, brittle and incredibly dry.
This is the point at which people often rush to buy as many conditioning products as they possibly can get their hands on. Problem is, there’s no knowing how effective these can be, you often have to restock which costs exorbitant amounts of money down the line, and there are so many different options that can be utterly confusing.
Enter keratin. Now that you know what keratin’s all about, you’ll better understand the treatment. Keratin treatments aim to replenish your starved locks with the necessary proteins. It soaks deeply into your damaged hair, through the pores all along the strand from the root to the tip. It’s a truly invigorating, reviving action that provides your hair with the energy it needs.
Needless to say, this means that your hair will be back to its shiny, bouncy self and best of all, you’ll be able to maintain this look for a long time to come. There’s strength and durability from the inside out, so it not only looks good from the outside, but also feels good from within. Keratin treatments also protect your hair from harmful sun rays, and acts as a shield of sorts from the elements.
These treatments are typically done with specific keratin hair products, and at Blo Our Beauty we only use the best. Our treatments can last anywhere between 4-6 months, which is the general lifespan of a well-done keratin treatment. Our experienced, qualified and enthusiastic staff are on hand to answer any and all queries you might have, so get in touch if you need to clear them out.
