What is it?

It’s a treatment that takes 90 minutes or longer after you anchor the salon chair. Your stylist will apply keratin formula to your hair and seal it using a very hot flat iron.

Hi pooja, weak hair often leads to thinning, which means, it needs the necessary protein now more than ever. keratin, the building block of hair, is just what your hair needs to restore its volume. make sure you discuss the procedure with your salon professional, and then proceed with the treatment.

Hi pooja, if you have very thin hair that's easily breakable, we advise that you skin this treatment as it includes intense chemicals and heat procedures. the treatment is mainly for the purpose of straightening unruly, unmanageable hair. please consult your hair care professional by showing them your hair before proceeding with the treatment.

Hi anita, the best course is to change your diet by including nutritious food items such as green vegetables, fish and nuts. combine this with regular oiling with almond or coconut oil to give the scalp a good massage, and promote blood circulation for healthy hair growth.
