Five Myths About Keratin Treatments

Here at Heat Lounge, we are all about a great blowout, and we offer several blowout options in our salon, we offer an array of Keratin Smoothing Services that can last anywhere from 6 weeks to 5 months. It's a great way to have tame and sleek hair long term, especially if you have coarse or textured hair.

But there are a lot of myths out there about keratin treatments, so let's take a minute to debunk the five biggest myths about professional keratin treatments.

Keratin contains dangerous chemicals and carcinogens like formaldehyde

This myth is often hard to debunk because there is some truth to it. Many formulas contain harsh chemicals and formaldehyde. Heat Lounge only uses GK Products, which don't contain harsh chemicals or formaldehyde.

Keratin Treatments will straighten your hair 

While your hair will appear sleeker and give the appearance of straighter hair, keratin is really meant to remove frizz and not change the wave of your hair. If you're looking for straightening treatments, Heat Lounge offers a relaxing service that will remove the curl from your hair.

You can wash your hair right away

Yes and no! With a traditional keratin treatment, you need to leave the treatment on your hair for at least 48 hours before shampooing. However, our Express Keratin service allows you to shampoo your hair on the same day.

Keratin treatments will damage the hair

This is a myth from the early days of keratin treatments that used harsh chemicals along with the high heat used. Our GK Keratin system seals the hair cuticle in a protective shield that coats the hair and protects it.

A Keratin treatment will leave your hair maintenance free

A common misconception is that a keratin treatment will make your hair simply 'wash and go.' What keratin WILL do, however, is make your hair more manageable and cut your styling time in half.
