Keratin Complex’s Smoothing Therapy has long been an industry standard- it is simply the best Keratin treatment available. Keratin Complex can eliminate up to 95% of frizzy hair while making it dramatically more manageable.
Keratin Complex Smoothing Therapy is Miami’s Best Keratin Treatment
This revolutionary hair smoothing system allows McAllister’s hair stylists to infuse keratin molecules deep within the hair’s cuticle, repairing damaged hair and reducing split ends. The end result of this keratin treatment is hair that is unbelievably soft, shiny and smooth.
The time it takes for a McAllister hair stylist to deliver this treatment varies based upon the texture, thickness, condition and length of your hair, but, on average, 2-3 hours to complete.
The results typically last about 3 months, during which time you will really appreciate the controlled curls and eliminated frizz while everyone else in your life will notice a dramatic improvement in your hair’s appearance.
A Few Keratin Treatment Facts and Questions Answered
Is Keratin Complex right for my hair type?
Keratin treatments are recommended for all hair types. The natural types of keratin proteins in these hair treatments can only benefit your hair’s health – it will never harm it. It can be utilized on colored and highlighted hair, chemically treated or straightened tresses and especially on hair that is been damaged, environmentally or otherwise!
Can keratin treatments, using Keratin Complex’s formulation, damage my hair?
Keratin Complex’s formulation contains a special blend of natural keratin that has been proven to restructure and restore hair of all types back to its healthiest, natural condition.
With each application, keratin molecules are deposited into the cuticle of the hair, so as you treat your hair regularly, the health and appearance of your hair will continue to improve. The buildup of keratin will gradually result in hair, which is smoother & silkier, straighter & shinier.
Do keratin treatments make hair easier to maintain?
One of the biggest benefits of Keratin Complex’s Smoothing Therapy is how much easier it is to style treated hair. In fact, some of McAllister’s hair salon clients have stated that their hair is “nearly maintenance-free” for months after their keratin treatments.
The biggest measurable benefit commonly mentioned by both our hair stylists and clients alike is treated hair is much easier and faster to blow-dry.
Can hair be colored before the keratin treatment?
Yes. Immediately after permanent hair color, semi-permanent hair processes or hair highlighting (like balayages, ombres or partial highlights) is the perfect time to do a keratin treatment.
The keratin treatment will seal the color in and actually extend the length of time your hair color remains vibrant and spectacular.
Can a keratin treatment be done on hair that has already been chemically treated, previously relaxed or otherwise straightened?
Yes, it is possible in most cases. McAllister’s stylists however typically recommend you wait a minimum of two weeks between chemical services to ensure your hair remains healthy and beautiful.
In these cases, a consultation is first recommended, as our goal is taking the necessary steps for each our clients to end up with perfect, healthy and beautiful hair.
How many days do I have to wait after the keratin treatment before my hair can get wet or be washed?
This is the one part that can be challenging. Traditional keratin treatments, such as Keratin Complex, require you to wait 3 days (or 72 hours) before wetting your hair in any way or washing your hair.
If you are looking for similar results, talk with your McAllister stylist about Keratin Complex’s Blowout Express or Goldwell’s customizable Kerasilk smoothing treatment.
Can I pull my hair back, put it in a pony tail or clip it up during this 72-hour time period?
No. During the 72 hours after the completion of a keratin treatment, your hair should not have any impressions made using bands, braids or clips.
What should be done if the hair gets wet during the 72-hour waiting period?
We know it’s Miami and things happen. Keratin treatments are great in the summer to eliminate frizz and fly-away hair Try to plan ahead and definitely keep an umbrella handy to shield your locks from the summer storms.
But if you do get caught and your hair does get wet in any way, blow the hair dry and flat iron with medium to low heat immediately.
What kind of shampoo and conditioner should be used?
While nearly all the hair products carried at McAllister Spa are sulfate-free and keratin safe, the hair stylists at McAllister Spa typically recommend branded support for all of our hair treatments.
Thus, we recommend Kerasilk home care regimens for Kerasilk treatments, Kevin.Murphy hair care for Treat.Me treatments and for Keratin Complex treatments, we recommend Keratin Color Care Shampoo & Conditioner (Sodium-Chloride and Sulfate Free).
How often can or should I get a keratin treatment done?
The treatment can be done as often as every 4-6 weeks, although we typically recommend that our keratin clients book every 3 months, or 12 weeks.
Frequent exposure to damaging or stressful environments may require more frequent treatments (such as chlorinated swimming pools, frequent salt water exposure, etc), so it’s always best to consult with your McAllister stylist.
Is the reapplication of the treatment done on the entire head or just on the new growth?
Repeating the keratin treatment should be done on the entire head as the build-up of keratin can only improve, not harm, the hair.
Should the hair be cut before or after the treatment?
McAllister stylists typically prefer to cut the hair after the treatment, as the hair will have a smoother texture and will lie differently after the treatment, but there may be reasons that guide your stylist to cut first and apply the keratin treatment afterward.
