What is Keratin?, Manhattan, New York

If you get your hair professionally styled or cut, you may have heard about keratin hair treatment. Getting this treatment can do wonders for your hair, especially if you have frizzy or unruly hair. Keratin hair treatments help make your hair smoother and healthier — but, what exactly is this treatment made of?

What is Keratin?

Keratin Is a Protein

Our bodies — specifically our skin, nails, and hair — contain the protein keratin. Our hair is mostly made up of keratin-associated proteins, which is why it’s so important to care for our hair. When hair is damaged or takes on a lot of chemical or environmental stresses, our naturally occurring keratin is depleted, causing it to break easily or become thin and rough.

Keratin Hair Treatments Revive Hair

stroudsburg-PA-keratin-hair-treatmentKeratin hair treatments help boost the depleted keratin in our hair, making it healthier and smoother. If humidity or hair coloring has damaged your hair, you may be deficient in keratin proteins. A keratin hair treatment can help restore your hair’s strength and give it elasticity, which helps reduce breakage. It also gives your hair a more youthful appearance. It also helps lock in moisture and eliminates frizz.

It’s Available at Professional Salons

While there are keratin hair treatment kits sold in stores, it’s better to go to a professional hair salon. You want someone who has experience, and who can also take into consideration your hair’s history. A professional hair stylist can provide ongoing hair care tips, so you can keep your hair beautiful and healthy long after your keratin hair treatment.
