Frizzy, Dull, or Out of Control Hair? A Keratin Smoothing Treatment May be Right for You.

Sheer Elegance Salon & Med Spa is San Antonio’s top salon for Keratin Smoothing treatment. A Keratin Smoothing treatment is a popular hair straightening and frizz control technique that has gained a lot of attention in recent years and is especially popular for the Texas summers. It is a chemical process that smooths and straightens hair, leaving it soft, shiny, and frizz-free. In this blog post, we will discuss everything you need to know about keratin smoothing treatment.

What is Keratin Smoothing Treatment?

Keratin is a natural protein that is found in our hair, skin, and nails. Keratin smoothing treatment is a process of applying a keratin solution to the hair, which is then sealed in using heat. The heat activates the keratin, which fills in the gaps in the hair cuticles, making the hair smooth, shiny, and frizz-free.

The process typically takes about two to three hours, depending on the length and thickness of your hair. After the treatment, you cannot wash your hair for at least 24 to 48 hours to allow the keratin to set properly.

Who can get Keratin Smoothing Treatment?

Keratin smoothing treatment can be done on all hair types, including curly, frizzy, and chemically treated hair. However, it is best suited for people who have damaged, frizzy, or unmanageable hair. It is also suitable for people who have color-treated or highlighted hair.
It is important to note that keratin smoothing treatment is not recommended for pregnant or breastfeeding women, as the chemicals used in the process may be harmful to the baby.

How long does Keratin Smoothing Treatment last?

Keratin smoothing treatment can last anywhere from four to six months, depending on how well you take care of your hair. It is important to use sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner to maintain the treatment. You should also avoid using hair products that contain alcohol or other harsh chemicals, as they can strip the keratin from your hair.

What are the benefits of Keratin Smoothing Treatment?

There are several benefits to getting a keratin smoothing treatment. These include:

  • Smoother, shinier hair: Keratin smoothing treatment makes your hair smoother and shinier, making it easier to manage.
  • Frizz reduction: Keratin smoothing treatment reduces frizz, making your hair more manageable, especially in humid conditions.
  • Time-saving: With keratin smoothing treatment, you spend less time styling your hair, as it is easier to manage.
  • Versatile: Keratin smoothing treatment can be done on all hair types and can be used to straighten, soften, or add shine to your hair.


Keratin smoothing treatment is a great way to get smoother, shinier, and more manageable hair. It is a chemical process that fills in the gaps in your hair cuticles, leaving it smooth and frizz-free. If you are tired of dealing with unmanageable hair, then keratin smoothing treatment may be the solution for you. However, it is important chose the right hairstylist, Sheer Elegance Salon & Med Spa has professionally trained and experience hairstylists to ensure that the treatment is properly performed and is right for you.
