Liquid Keratin was founded in 2008 on a mission to find a better alternative to control unmanageable frizzy hair than the popular, yet toxic, and dangerous treatments that were being offered. Liquid Keratin was the first and still is the only simple, completely safe salon keratin treatment that is free of harsh chemicals.

Liquid Keratin provides Straighter, Smoother, Stronger hair. It is formaldehyde free & safe. Liquid Keratin hair treatment tames unwanted frizz, loosens curl, smoothes and softens hair texture, adds shine, and keeps hair manageable and healthy.

 

This exclusive keratin system is formulated to promote the smoothing and semi-permanent relaxing of a range of hair types while repairing damage caused by other chemical processes. It was the first truly formaldehyde free Keratin treatment to hit the market. Liquid Keratin Professional is also free of all donors/releasers of formaldehyde, aldehydes, thio, sodium hydroxide urea, and guanidine.

While Liquid Keratin has developed the most advanced salon keratin treatments, the company also offers a range of products including the hugely popular Keratin Infusing Healthy Hair De-Frizz Shampoo and Deep De-Frizz Conditioner which improve and enhance the results of the Liquid Keratin treatments as well as those of other popular salon keratin treatments.

Liquid Keratin continues to aggressively research and develop new products to provide options for all hair types as the company continues to revolutionize the hair care industry.

What is Keratin?

Keratin is a protein and the major component in skin, hair and nails. In fact, the hair strand is comprised of up to 95% of  Keratin hair proteins Keratin acts both as an external protective protein in the cuticle (the outer layers of a hair strand) and as an internal structural protein in the cortex (the inner core of the hair that helps determine its strength).

A keratin smoothing treatment seals the hair cuticle with a coating of protein that eliminates frizz, and adds softness and shine. Before the treatment, the hair must be thoroughly shampooed to strip any oils and product residue.

How long does the process take?

Your hair will be washed prior to treatment so no need to worry about coming in with clean hair.

Will it make my hair brassy?

The Liquid Keratin Treatment binds to specific amino acids found in hair keratin. People with higher levels of these types of amino acids in their hair are at risk and have the potential to develop a change of color. Less than 1% of customers will experience this type of change in their hair color. As with any hair treatment, Liquid Keratin recommends performing a strand test in a discreet location prior to application, particularly if you have blond, light colored and/or chemically altered hair. Any change in color will happen immediately upon applying the iron.

How often can it be applied?

Liquid Keratin can be used as often as you like during regular styling and in between full treatments. We do recommend, however, performing a full treatment every 4 – 6 weeks or when you feel your hair can use it. The Liquid Keratin Aftercare products (shampoo, conditioner and leave in) are key in prolonging the process. They are specially formulated without Sodium Chloride. Sodium Chloride, which is in a lot of hair care products, will diminish the effects of the Liquid Keratin Treatment very quickly.
