Mycro Keratin Hair Treatment - Safest Keratin Treatment


Repair your hair with Mycro keratin and experience, smooth, shiny, soft and Frizz free hair all year not just in the summer.

Since keratin  treatments arrived in South Africa,  no other keratin treatment has been able to offer the quality of a true keratin result. Smooth, shinier, soft and longer lasting.  Mycro Keratin is the largest keratin brand in the  South Africa.

Micro keratin is based on a secret formula which uses microtechnology rather than high levels of Formalin (Formaldehyde)   and by microtechnology, these microscopic molecules are designed to penetrate the hair, enriching them with keratin and vitamins, replacing the keratin, giving you back, shiny, soft and FRIZZ FREE hair you always wanted.

Blow Dry and Go is now possible, while some woman with thick curly hair can benefit by reducing their styling time by half.  This process is much safer than a permanent hair straightener as they do not cause any damage to the hair.
