Read on to know about keratin treatment and the best hair-care products to use for keratin treated hair

  • What is Keratin?

    Keratin is one of the proteins your hair, nails and skin are made up of. But depending on your mane’s wear-and-tear (think: chemical color, styling tools and environmental stressors) your locks need replenishing. Lack of Keratin leads to porous, fragile strands that lack lustre.

  • What is a Keratin-treatment?

    It’s usually an in-salon treatment that coats each hair cuticle with Keratin – the protein that eliminates frizz, detangles and smoothens hair. While Keratin is naturally produced, waiting for your hair to naturally smoothen could take forever, hence keratin-treatments are so popular.

  • Who can opt for a Keratin-treatment?

    Anyone who wants straighter, shinier and more healthy hair is a candidate. It works for all types of hair, smoothening out texture (for upto four months). Although, it’s important to note, the treatment isn’t a one-size-fits-all, outcomes will differ.

  • What are the best products for keratin-treated hair?

    Here’s a list of the ideal products you’ll need to lather up, deep condition and style post a keratin-treatment.

  1. 1. Marc Anthony Nourishing Argan Oil of Morocco Sulfate Free Shampoo

    Since you’ve recently taken the plunge, the only way to extend the lifeline of your new super-straight strands is by investing in SLS-free shampoos.
