Keratin FAQ

What happens during a Keratin Treatment? ALL NEW FORMULATIONS

During a treatment the hair is first washed, with a clarifying shampoo, to open up the cuticles. Then the treatment is applied, which contains the Keratin. Processing times between 15-60 minutes. Then heat is applied through drying and straightening irons. The heat seals the Keratin into the hair and removes frizz and damage. "Voila”, you're finished.

What does hair look like after it has been treated?
GKT makes the hair look shiny, healthier and more lustrous, and will also feel softer. Keratin provides a combination of nutrients for the hair, helping it stay healthy and look smooth.

How long does GKT last?
The GK Treatment lasts between three to five months. GKT is not permanent and it eventually washes out; the more regularly you wash it, the faster it will wash out. The average length of the keratin treatment is around 3 months. Hair that is washed once a week should last 4-5 months, hair that is washed more often will fade faster.

I have very curly hair, will the GKT give me straight hair?

Does it guarantee a straight result?
No, you may still have a natural wave. However, the hair is much more manageable and easier to style. Time required to style post-treatment hair is reduced dramatically.
