Permanent Straightener or Keratin treatments
Which service is best for me, Permanent hair straightener or keratin treatments? That’s one of the most popular questions from customers at Mels Hair Salon. Mels Hair Salon is situated in Durban, Kwa-Zulu Natal were its known for its high humidity throughout the year. The climate in Durban makes hair unmanageable for many people with frizzy hair or curly hair.
It is important to know that these two services are completely different and they both have completely different outcomes. Permanent Straighteners will straighten out curly hair permanently. Keratin Treatments remove frizz from both curly hair and straight hair. Keratin treatments main function is to smoothen out the frizz and not curls (what is frizz). One can straighten out curls with a chemical straightener but may still require a keratin treatment to smoothen out the frizz from the hair.
There are some companies who have tried to combine these two products together however, while this may sound like a good idea, these companies have not been able to prove longevity without damage to the hair.
Mel uses Matrix Opti-Smooth as their choice of Permanent Hair Straightener and Mycro Keratin is their preferred choice for keratin treatments.
