Are you dreaming of more manageable, Softer, Smoother, hair? Do you wish your hair had more shine? Smoothing Treatments are your answer.
“Smoothing Treatments” include Keratin treatments and Brazilian Blowout treatments, both offered at Educe salon in Orlando.
While both of theses treatments are different, they do give similar results.
What is keratin?
Keratin is a protein and the major component in skin, hair, and nails; in fact, the hair is mainly comprised of keratin-associated proteins. Keratin acts both as an external protective protein in the cuticle (the outer layers of a hair strand) and as an internal structural protein in the cortex (the inner core of the hair that helps determine its strength).
Keratin is depleted when hair is damaged physically, chemically and/or from environmental factors, such as the sun. This keratin loss exposes the hair’s cortex, making it susceptible to additional damage, and causes porous spots to develop—much like potholes in a road. Replenishing lost keratin helps to correct porosity and smooth the hair’s surface. It restores strength and elasticity, giving the hair a more youthful, healthy appearance.
With that being said, let’s go over both treatments offered at Educe Salon to help decide which is right for you:
WHAT IS A BRAZILIAN BLOWOUT?
Brazilian Blowout is a smoothing treatment that is totally customizable, depending on your hair needs and the look you’re trying to achieve. This is an amino acid (a type of protein) based system. If you have curly hair, you can keep your curls and customize the application to focus on getting rid of frizz and closing the cuticle. You can wash your hair immediately after your service and pull your hair back into a ponytail if you wish, or put your hair up immediately after your treatment. This treatment can last 12 weeks if maintained properly and women absolutely love it!
Through the use of breakthrough bonding technologies, this customizable smoothing treatment actually improves the condition of the hair by creating a protective protein layer around the hair shaft to eliminate frizz and smooth the cuticle.
The end result is smooth, frizz-free hair with radiant shine!
WHAT MAKES Brazillian SMOOTHING TREATMENT DIFFERENT?
Customizable – keep curls and loose frizz or achieve the smoothest result possible.
No Down Time – leave the salon and immediately wash hair, exercise, put hair in a stylish ponytail or clip without worry.
Great for All Hair Types – curly, kinky, oily, frizzy, fine, damaged or coarse, we’ve got you covered.
No Change to Curl Pattern – after about 12 weeks, natural curl pattern returns.
No Line of Demarcation with New Hair Growth – great for transitioning from Japanese straighteners, relaxers or other keratin treatments.
Treatment time at Educe Salon – 60- 80 minutes; you leave the salon with smooth, frizz-free hair for up to 12 weeks depending on how well you take care of your treatment and if you are using the recommended product.
We offer Brazillian blowout Shampoo and Conditioners at Educe Salon to help maintain the longevity of this treatment to ensure you get your 12 weeks. You can get this treatment done throughout the year, spaced out from the 12 weeks or on an as needed Basis
What are Keratin Smoothing Treatments?
We offer Keratin Complex at Educe Salon. The innovative technology in this Smoothing treatment binds keratin ( the protein that hair is made up of) to the hair. This process helps prevent humidity from penetrating the hair, thus locking out frizz. In addition, Keratin Complex Color Therapy incorporates this signature keratin technology into the hair-coloring process, which helps to make the hair stronger and smoother as it undergoes a color transformation.
Straightening vs. Smoothing
Keratin Complex’s revolutionary technology does not break the hair’s bonds, instead delivering the versatility of smoother, healthier-looking hair that can be styled wavy or straight as desired.
Keratin Complex’s signature keratin works effectively on all hair types. Our unique Smoothing Therapy treatments contain high concentrations of keratin that penetrate throughout the hair structure and then are sealed within the cortex to repair the damage.
Keratin treatments (not keratin blowout express which is also available at Educe, and customizable more like the Brazilian blowout) are also smoothing and control frizz with a hydrolyzed protein that penetrates the hair shaft adding the protein molecule to each hair strand strengthening and smoothing it. This molecule is bigger and takes time to settle into each hair strand. Thus, you CAN NOT wash your hair for 48 hours, nor can you pull hair back or up. This smoothing treatment tends to “straighten” the hair a bit more, and it IS NOT recommended you do this treatment more than twice a year.
We have Shampoos and Conditioners at Educe Salon that are sulfate and paraben free, which is a must if you choose to do a keratin treatment at Educe salon, so add that to your ticket price, you don’t want to go home and wash it out with the wrong Shampoo!
We have certified and trained professionals at Educe in both treatments and would love the opportunity to serve you and your hair needs, Call or book online today. We look forward to meeting you!
