Learning About Keratin

Keratin is a specific type of protein that makes up your hair, skin, and nails. Known as a protective protein, keratin is less likely to scratch or tear versus other body cells. Did you know that keratin is an essential and structural building block of your hair? We offer keratin hair treatment in Chicago and are excited for you to see the results of your new silky and smooth hair.

The Process

If you are looking for a keratin hair treatment in Chicago, George Charles Salon is the place to go. We have both a natural smoothing treatment and express treatment. Keratin works by smoothing down the cells that overlap in order to form your hair strands. Essentially, the layers of cells are absorbing the keratin, ultimately giving you a glossy, full, and straighter look. Keratin has the ability to make your curly hair less frizzy and easier to style.

Treatment in The Salon

The two treatments offered at George Charles Salon are:

  • Natural Keratin Smoothing Treatment: This option is a little more expensive than the express treatment, but can last up to five months. Our treatment reduces frizz and curls while also restoring shine and silkiness. After this treatment, you cannot wash your hair for three days but after that, you can go about your normal routine.
  • Keratin Express Treatment: The express treatment can last up to two months and you can wash your hair eight hours after your visit with us. If you’re looking to test out the keratin system, this is a great starter option. Once you decide you like the results, we recommend getting the natural smoothing treatment next time!

The Benefits

If you’ve gotten a keratin treatment on your hair, you are familiar with the results of smoother hair. A keratin treatment also allows for easier managing when it comes to getting ready for the day or freshening up for an evening event. Keratin treatments work differently depending on the type of hair you have so make sure you ask us about after-treatment maintenance.
