Keratin treatments have been the best way to tame frizzy hair for years, and if you have ever had one done in the salon you know that they cost a pretty penny.
Luckily some of our favorite brands of salon keratin treatments can be purchased for use at home! One of the most popular at-home keratin treatments is Keratin Complex by Coppola.
If you’re trying to figure out which at-home keratin treatment is right for your hair, check out our Keratin Complex Review!
Keratin Complex Review
Some keratin treatments can be difficult to perform, but the Keratin Complex Natural Keratin Smoothing Treatment is different.
Traditional straighteners use chemicals that actually change the chemical bonds of the hair. The Keratin Complex Smoothing Therapy by Coppola is different because it doesn’t actually alter the bonds of the hair.
Instead, the Keratin Complex system performs some intensive conditioning to the hair, which adds lots of shine. The treatment increases the manageability of frizzy hair by infusing natural keratin deep into the cuticle of the hair shaft. Each strand is coated in the restoring keratin which unlocks the smooth, silky texture of natural hair.
What I really like is that the Keratin Complex Treatment formula doesn’t have a strong odor, like other popular keratin treatments. After performing a Keratin Complex Treatment, you must wait 72 hours before washing your hair.
For this reason, it is probably best to perform the treatment on the weekend when you don’t have to be out of the house much. You have to be really careful during this period to not bend the hair or use any clips/hair ties or risk the treatment not lasting as long.
When you’re finally able to shampoo your hair, use a sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner. Keratin Complex makes its own fabulous keratin shampoo and conditioner, which will extend the life of your treatment.
Any sulfate-free brand will work to keep your hair safe though if you already have a favorite. It is very important that you use sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner because the added sulfates can break down the keratin faster and your results won’t last as long.
I was very happy to find after shampooing my hair that it felt very lightweight and it was instantly easy to run my fingers through. My hair was straight, silky, and smooth, until about 3.5 months later when my hair was ready for another. The bottle will last you several treatments even if you have long hair, and will cost less than having one treatment performed in a salon.
The only negative thing I would have to mention in this Keratin Complex Review is that keratin treatments require a lot of focus and attention to perform them correctly. This treatment also has 72 hours of downtime, and during this, you have to be very careful with your hair not to bend it.
With this treatment, it is really important to follow the directions exactly to get the best results. Make sure you know how to do a keratin treatment at home, and have all your materials prepared before you begin.
The results are outstanding, and last for a really long time! For me that is the most important thing about a keratin treatment, having to perform them as little as possible.
If you’re not sure you can commit to the downtime required for this Keratin Complex Treatment, you can begin with a keratin hair mask which will help repair damaged hair without the wait!
Keratin Complex makes its own Infusion Keratin Replenisher which can be used as a stand-alone treatment, or to extend the life of your keratin smoothing treatment. Happy Keratin Treating!
