What You Need to Know About Keratin Smoothing Treatment

Ill be the first one to admit that I didn't know much about Keratin Smoothing Treatments when they first hit the market, thinking they were for those women that had huge, unruly hair (which is totally NOT me). I wash my hair a couple of times per week, blowdry it myself, (if I'm not organised enough to book a salon appointment - insert eye roll) and it usually sits up in a mumma top knot 99% of its life. It's quite fine (so no Victoria's Secret hair for me) and I struggle keeping volume in it as I'm an 80's baby, so I LIKE. BIG. HAIR. It has a natural kinky wave, made worse in humidity, hence why I can't let it dry naturally. If I do, it looks like this:- (cringe, I know...and this is why I don't).
Enter Cezanne Keratin Classic Treatment. I had no expectations going into the service, but I was pleasantly surprised that it was so simple, pain and fuss free. There was no unpleasant smell, no burning scalp, no pulling hair, which equals a happy me. The full service took right on 2 hours. Firstly my hair was washed and fluff dried. Then the solution was applied (just like hair colour) and allowed to process for 30 minutes. From there, my hair was rinsed, blowdried again and then finished with the straightening irons to lock in the keratin. And voila, finished product. 
The first thing I noticed was how smooth and shiny my hair felt. It is so much more manageable now, allowing me to air dry it on occasion without giving me anxiety. I still blow dry it most of the time, but it has cut the time in half, which scores 10/10 just for that. You have no idea how many times I've reached for the dry shampoo just to get ONE.MORE.DAY. I'm still getting volume at the roots and have the choice of wearing it straight, curled or with my natural wave - just without the frizz and fuzz! I've experienced incredible results on the first application, so I'm hooked!
Some additional benefits of the Cezanne Keratin Smoothing Treatment are:
  • 100% formaldehyde free
  • Creates smoother, softer, frizz free, healthier and more manageable hair
  • Restores hairs natural shine

If you are not ready to fully commit, there is also the Smooth-Me-Now Instant Keratin service available at Blush Bar as an add on to any blow out that lasts up to 6 weeks, is half the price and takes half the time. Great for those wanting to try it or for those trips to Bali and beyond (#fu$kcovid) that normally equal crazy hair. 

The choice is yours but there is no better time to get great hair.
