Hello My Awesome Readers,
Hope you all are doing great. Last week I had my first ever Keratin Treatment done on my hair. And today with the help of this blog post I will be sharing my experience along with some needful information with all of you guys.
I had a quite brittle, frizzy and impossible to tame kind of hair. Few months back I had Balayage Ombre’over my hair. Balayage is unlike the foil or cap method of highlighting. This is currently one of the modern & natural looking highlights. I never had coloured my hair earlier, this was my first time as it was my brother’s wedding so I opted for some multi-dimensional option. And here I got introduced with Balayage pronounced as “ˈbalɪjɑːʒ”
A quick Difference between Balayage & Highlights
Balayage is a simple way of painting colour directly on your hair and it melts down in your desired colour Likewise my natural hair colour was Dark Brown and my desired hair colours were Igora Royal L-44 Beige Caramel and 12-0 Special Blond natural
whereas in Highlights you are sitting in with foils on your hair up to your roots.
Generally ammonia-free hair color is any given day healthiest for your hair. Ombre’ and Balayage can also be done with ammonia-free color. Basically people opt for Balayage and Ombre’ because it requires you to color your hair less often, which is kinder to the hair in comparison to traditional foils.
Now let’s talk about, Keratin Treatment.
Keratin Treatment is something which is highly recommended after any type of colouring you opt for. And if blowing out your strands feels more like playing tug-of-war, you could definitely get some smoothing results out of it.
What Kind of Hair Type will get Maximum Benefits of Keratin Treatment?
First determine your hair texture, if your hair type is curly, frizzy and you have recently gone under some chemicals like colouring, highlighting or Balayage then you will definitely see the most benefits.
Note: – In case you have straight hair and you still want to get keratin Treatment done, then make sure you may not expect major changes in your hair texture. But yes it will definitely strengths the shaft and makes your hair more resilience.
What does Keratin Treatment actually does?
Keratin is a protein and it is the key structural material making up the outer layer of human skin. So getting the Keratin Treatment done is putting the protein back into your hair, which we often lose due to age and chemical treatments.
What all changes you see after your Keratin Treatment done?
You can expect to see an increase in shine, less frizz, less tangles, less breakage and easy to manage hair.
What all precautions you have to take after your Keratin Treatment?
Once you are done with your Keratin Treatment, make sure you will not wash/oil your hair or tie a tight ponytail for at least 48 hours. And after 48 hours wash and conditioner your hair with your salon recommended shampoo and conditioner only.
Where did I get my Keratin Treatment done?
I got it done from one of the finest Salon in NCR “Guneet kalra Makeovers” I have always loved all the services i have tried till now. Be it there Makeup, Hairstyle, Pedicure anything or everything.

What all tips I received from My Hair Stylist at the salon?
The hair stylist their suggested me to use the after- care products rightly, then only my keratin treatment will last for at least 4-6 months. As Post-Regimen routine really matters.
How much time does Keratin Treatment requires?
It takes atleast 3-4 hours. As it is a long process, your hair will get a good wash may be twice or thrice in a gap of 10minutes.
Then they will apply the treatment working in small sections. And then they will leave it for processing for about 15 mins. Then they will blow drier the product into hair, and then flat iron your hair which takes the longest time.
PS:- Just be prepared for the weird smell, For some it may not be too weird but for me it was quite a pungent smell which even brought tears in my eyes.
And yes, let me also tell you not to be heartbroken when you see your hairs after the first ironing session, as my hair are quite thin. So when I saw my hair immediate after ironing, I was like nooo why did I opt for keratin treatment. It’s not made for my hair type.
However, after 48 hours when I went to the salon for my hair wash, my hairs were just looking amazing. Trust me I was absolutely amazed with the end results. I assumed my hair to be a bit straighter and less frizzy, but the final blow out just blew my mind. And that time only, I realized what a game changer this treatment really was.
