At our gorgeous Salons in Subiaco and Claremont, we pride ourselves on delivering the best Keratin Smoothing Treatments in Perth!
But, we wholeheartedly believe that our keratin treatments are only as good as the after-care advice that we give our clients, –your keratin hair treatment needs to be cared for properly to keep your hair looking its gorgeous best.
Keratin smoothing is one of the best things you can do to help repair damaged, frizzy and unruly hair. Caring for your keratin smoothing is not only the key to locking in the longevity of the treatment, it also plays an important role in how well future keratin treatments work in your hair.
Here are 4 simple ways to care for your ONE HAir Salon Keratin Smoothing Treatment.
1. Use sulphate free shampoo and conditioner
The use of sulphate free hair products after you have had a keratin smoothing treatment is the best way to look after your hair every day. Sulphates are a chemical that are very drying to hair!
They are added to shampoos as a lathering agent– it's what gives you all those bubbles and white foam, and your hair that fabulous, squeaky clean feeling. The problem is that they leach all of the goodness out of the hair, including your hair’s natural protective barrier.
This means that every time you wash your hair in a sulphate based shampoo, you are stripping a good amount of the keratin treatment from your hair and washing it down the drain.
At ONE Hair Salon we use and recommend the use of Kevin Murphy Hair Products for your keratin smoothing. Your Hair Specialist on the day will recommend the specific product that is right for you hair needs. Not only are they free of sulphates, but Kevin Murphy products are also free of parabens, mineral oils and all of the other nasties that go into hair care these days!

2. Avoid heat styling tools
Heat styling tools, particularly hair straighteners, are damaging even for the healthiest of hair. So, when it comes to hair that has been keratin treated, natural drying is best.
Many keratin treatments are all about applying a heavy, heat activated coating that leaves your hair looking limp and feeling oily. The problem with heat activated treatments is that the daily ironing of the hair removes the keratin treatment very quickly and leaves your hair even more damaged than before!
That’s why we choose to use Cezanne keratin smoothing. Cezanne has a 3 pronged approach to smoothing your hair. Cezanne’s approach to keratin smoothing is about softness and strength as well as the smoothing. The Sericin and keratin repair and strengthen the hair shaft and the glycolic acid softens your hair from the inside out, making natural heat free styling a breeze and extending the life of your keratin smoothing treatment by up to 6 months!
Use silicone free after care and styling products
The word silicone has a very negative subconscious flavour, but I want to talk about the real reason why its use in keratin smoothing after care should be avoided.
Silicone leaves a very tough, impenetrable coating on the hair. There are 2 main reasons why this has a negative effect on keratin smoothing:
- A silicone coating suffocates the hair and hair shaft, drying the hair out and leaving it in a very poor condition.
- Keratin smoothing treatments find it hard to penetrate the silicone barrier, meaning that you get less success from your treatment as they are prevented from doing their job properly.
The use of silicone based products is best avoided before and after your keratin smoothing treatment for these 2 reasons.
Want to know if your Hair Product has Silicone?
Look for these ingredients:
- Phenyl trimethicone.
- Dimethicone copolyol.
If any of these are on the bottle, it's best to avoid them to ensure your Keratin Treatment lasts!
