Why Fall is the Best Time for a Keratin Treatment

Your hair had a lot of fun this summer! It braved the thick, damp heat; took a few dips in salty or chlorinated water; it was worn up, down, wavy or straight; ironed and styled to perfection; and enjoyed a seasonal romance with the sun. Now that our lives are beginning to shift toward costume parties and holiday gatherings, it’s time to start thinking repair and transformation. For shiny, healthy-looking hair that also works with your busy schedule, we recommend a keratin treatment. Our Master 2 Stylist Ashley Bailey explains the benefits of this process and why fall is the season to get one.

“Your hair is made of keratin. When we were kids, we didn’t have frizz, but as we expose our hair to damage through color and styling throughout time, it breaks down the keratin in your hair,” Bailey says. “A keratin treatment undoes the damage that summer has done to your hair and helps tame frizz, especially in humid [Georgia] weather.”

Our salon provides three types of keratin treatments: express, full and personalized. Bailey suggests the “express” treatment for beginners. “Express is recommended for those who have never had the keratin treatment before. If you like it, then you can go into the ‘full’.” She adds that it helps with frizz and adds shine, but won’t straighten.

“The full treatment lasts 4-6 months,” she says. “It lasts longer in the fall because we don’t go swimming, and we aren’t in the sun as much.” The full treatment will also help cut your blow dry time by 50%, tame frizz and slightly straighten. The “personalized” treatment can be used for either curly or straight hair—you choose. It has maximum straightening abilities, but can also help lock in the moisture of your curls, as well as tame frizz and cut blow dry time in half.

A word of advice from Bailey: “If you are looking to straighten your hair, you need to go with a full or personalized treatment. Guests come in wanting the keratin treatment right off the bat, but aren’t ready to pay for the full. Yet they want straightened hair, which can’t be guaranteed with the express. It’s more likely with the full.”

Once you have had your treatment, there are ways to make it last longer. “You want to use the Keratin Complex Timeless or Blondeshell shampoos. Both deposit keratin back into your hair,” Bailey says. The Timeless Color Fade-Defy Shampoo (also one of our bestsellers) is recommended for colored hair, while Blondeshell Shampoo is perfect for blonde hair. She also suggests getting express touch-ups every 4-6 weeks to keep it fresh.
