GK or Brazilian Blowout are neither a traditional relaxer nor a straightener that can only be used on certain types of hair. In fact, there's nothing traditional about this new type of service. It does not involve a harsh chemical treatment process that can over process hair and leave it in poor condition. The Keratin Treatment is a universal product and can be used safely on just about any type of hair - dry, frizzy, over-processed, color treated, ethnic, or even unprocessed virgin hair. Just about everyone can get the same great results - healthy, shiny, frizz-free, manageable hair. Several of our Hair Designer's are certified in the Keratin Treatment.
To determine the best Keratin Treatment for you and the total cost of your service, you will need a no cost , no obligation consultation.

Note: On average Keratin Treatments at salons around the country retail at $300-$800. We have leveraged our unique partnerships with our distributors to pass the savings on to our clients.
Good to Know about the Keratin Treatment:
The Keratin Treatment can be used on colored or highlighted hair. FYI: Keratin treatment can be done the same day as your hair color service. In fact, it can be used on any type of hair. It is NOT meant to be a permanent and DOES require redoing approximately every 3 to 4 months. That is why it blends with the natural growth of the hair. The treatment does NOT use strong chemicals to open and close the hair cuticle in an effort to straighten it, "breaking the bones" of the hair shaft. Keratin is a natural substance which comprises approximately 88% of your hair.
There is no softening or swelling of the hair shafts, so it is easy to see why the condition of the hair shaft is NOT compromised and why each strand maintains its strength and structural integrity. This advanced hair treatment service eliminates the need to carefully watch the clock in order to halt a high pH chemical process in time to prevent excessive damage to hair.
