Keratin Smoothing Treatments

Keratin Complex at Audacious SalonOur Keratin Treatments at Audacious Salon are specially formulated to contain Keratin protein, which rebuilds and restores all types of hair. These Keratin Treatments rejuvenate and revitalize the hair giving it a softer and silkier finish. Unlike other salon services, the more you treat your hair, the healthier it becomes.

With each treatment, the build-up of Keratin makes the hair:

  • Smoother and silkier
  • Straighter and shinier
  • Easier and faster to blow-dry
  • Close to being maintenance free

Our Keratin Smoothing Treatments encases the hair follicle with a keratinous bond to:

  • Promote healing
  • Block the effects of humidity
  • Helps prevent environmental toxins from entering the hair

Keratin Treatments are gentle enough to use on all hair types.


Q: What is the difference between Keratin Smoothing Treatment and Express Blow Out?
A: The regular Keratin Treatment is formulated especially for frizzy, curly hair and is effective on all hair types. It is a revitalizing and rejuvenating treatment that seals Keratin into the cuticle to lock out frizz-causing humidity and reduce curl. One treatment gives long-lasting results for up to five months and requires a 72-hour waiting period post-treatment. Keratin Express Blow Out is unique, one-hour service that gives the hair a softer, smoother and silkier texture for up to eight weeks. Hair can be washed after just 8-hours. Express Blow Out is perfect for all hair types.

Q: How much time should be allowed for a Keratin Smoothing Treatment?
A: The amount of time depends on hair length, type and texture. As a general rule, the process normally takes two to three hours for a regular Keratin Smoothing Treatment and
one hour for a Keratin Express Blow Out. When visiting our salon, we can provide more information about the length of time required during your consultation.

Q: What  results can be expected after a Keratin Smoothing Treatment?
A: The hair will be more manageable and easy to style, and will be resistant to humidity.  It will feel noticeably softer and silkier, with added life, shine and vibrancy.

Q: Should the hair be colored before or after the treatment application?
A: Best time to have a Keratin Treatment done is directly after permanent color, semi-permanent color or highlights.  The Keratin Treatment seals in the color making it last longer and appear more vibrant.  If you choose to have color applied after the treatment, we recommend waiting at least two weeks.  Make an appointment with one of our stylists for beautiful hair color to compliment your new silky smooth hair.

Q: Should the hair be cut before or after the treatment?
A: We recommend the hair be cut after the treatment, as the hair will have a smoother texture and will lay differently.

Q: Can the treatment be done on chemically treated, relaxed or tightened hair?
A: Yes, in fact, Keratin Treatments work to repair damage caused by chemical services.  It is recommended to wait two weeks between any chemical services.

Q: How many days after the Keratin Smoothing Treatment before the hair can be washed?
A: You must wait 3 days (72 hours) before washing your hair or swimming.

Q: Can hair be pulled back or clipped up during the 72-hour waiting period?
A: No, avoid making any impressions on the hair from clips, ponytail holders, hats or sunglasses.

Q: What should be done if hair gets wet during the 72-hour waiting period?
A: Blow-dry and flat iron with medium to low heat as soon as possible.

Q: What kind of shampoo and conditioner should be used?
A: Keratin Care Shampoo & Conditioner (sodium chloride-free formula) or Keratin Color Care Shampoo & Conditioner (sodium chloride-sulfate-free formula).

Q: How often can Keratin Treatments be performed?
A: A Keratin Treatment can be done as often as 4 to 6 weeks.

Q: How long will the Keratin Smoothing Treatment results Last?
A: A regular Keratin Treatment can last up to five months, and  Express Blow Out up to eight weeks, depending on lifestyle, maintenance  and adherence to all aftercare instructions.

Q: What should I do to maintain my treatment results?
A: It is important to use a sodium chloride-free shampoo & conditioner which will not
strip keratin from the hair.
