Keratin Treatment

What is Keratin?

Before we talk about at-home keratin treatment, let us understand what is Keratin? It is a type of insoluble fibrous protein that is found naturally in hair strands, nails, and claws. It helps in building the outer layer of skin and hair.  The protein gives structure and makes hair manageable. Notably, Keratin is not found in any food item. Our body breaks the protein and vitamins that we consume and change it to Keratin. You can eat biotin-rich, protein-rich, amino-acid-rich food so that your body can build Keratin.

Benefits of Keratin Treatment

  • It helps in repairing damaged and dry hair by replacing the protein that your locks have lost.
  • It rebuilds the damaged areas, adds shine, and eliminates the frizz.
  • The Keratin treatment adds moisture to strands that help make them soft, smooth, shiny, and frizz-free.

Keratin Treatment at home VS Salon

This choice is completely subjective. The price of the Keratin treatment depends on the length of your tresses. But it will cost you somewhere around 2500 (starting price).  A lot of people on Reddit shared that it is important to check the quality of the mask before you opt for any Keratin treatment. A lot of times the effect of the Keratin goes away in a few washes leaving your hair more damaged. In that case, we bring to you at home Keratin treatment that will make your hair shiny. You can try it this weekend and thank us later for recommending it.
