It’s that time of year to consider frizz…and hair straightening. You’ve heard that many salon treatments contain formaldehyde or traces of it. Seriously! Is there is a way to SAFELY straighten your hair that will last for the 3-4 months of summer?
At Hier and Haines Salon in McLean VA, Keratin Protein Treatments are 100% free of formaldehyde. These intensely effective treatments soften and smooth the hair and can be used on previously colored hair without causing harm. For YOUR hair straightening treatment, here’s what you need to know:
- Q. What is Keratin?
A. Keratin is a protein found naturally in hair. It fills gaps in the hair cuticle that may be cracked, dry, or damaged, leaving your hair silky smooth and relaxed.
- Q How Does A Keratin Treatment Work?
A. Certified stylists apply a solution that is made with active keratin, similar to the protein found in human hair. Using a hot iron, the stylist seals the formula onto the outer layer of the hair’s cuticle. Keratin is a tough substance that adds to your hair what has been lacking to begin with, or what it has lost over the years.
- Q. What Is The Result?
A. The treatment creates beautiful hair. It makes hair look shiny, sleek and healthy. It lasts approximately four months, depending how frequently the hair is washed.
- Q. Are All Keratin Protein Treatments formaldehyde free?
A.Unfortunately, many Keratin hair relaxing treatments still make use of formaldehyde in the bonding process. And there may be other chemicals too, like Methylen Glycol and Thio, Cystine, and Sodium Hydroxide. According to Denise Mann on WebMD, it is important to be careful and make sure that your Salon uses only products with safe ingredients and solutions. Some of these chemicals can cause damage to hair that is costly to repair.
- Q. Are There Safe and Effective Alternatives?
A. Yes. At Hier and Haines Salon, we are proud to use a revolutionary new product line that contains absolutely NO formaldehyde or other harmful chemicals: Nano Complex by Research in Beauty. This 100% damage-free straightener conquers frizz and leaves an extreme shine lasting 3-4 months. Safe on any type hair, including the most damaged. Nano Complex is more than a Keratin Treatment; it will reconstruct and recondition your hair.
- Q. Will There Be Unpleasant Fumes?
A. At Hier & Haines we use a “fume extractor” with a carbon filter specifically designed to remove any Keratin vapors that may be given off during the process to ensure the safety of the clients and technicians. Your comfort, safety, and overall positive experience are our priority and commitment.
