Sleek, shiny and straight hair is what every girl desire. Silky and straight hair gives completely a new dimension to the look. To achieve this gorgeous and stylish look, women are visiting salons. Market is buzzing with salons offering different hair straightening treatments. From straightening, smoothening to keratin therapy, options are many. But before taking the plunge and going for hair straightening, you must know the difference between them, and which one suits you the best.
What are Smoothening and Keratin?
Smoothening is a chemical process where bond of the hair is broken by strong chemicals like thyoglocate which damage hair internally. It is done on virgin hair only and is not advised on chemical treated hair, bleached/colored hair, over processed hair or damaged hair, as it damages the hair further.
But on the contrary, Keratin therapy is a revolutionary process for hair that works on protein building of your tresses. It is a more natural process where internal bonds of the hair are not broken, and hair quality improves every time keratin treatment is done. It offers a relaxed hair look and can be done on all hair types. It can be done post color application to lock in the color and enhance color longevity. Also, it can be done on very fine and excessively damaged hair.
This treatment manages unruly and frizzy hair giving them a bouncy and soft effect. GK Hair offers a pathbreaking keratin treatment with Juvexin – a patented natural keratin blend – that infuses the goodness of Juvexin enriching the hair cortex and leaving hair shiny, manageable and soft.
Which is better?
Both the treatments ensure shiny, soft and frizz-free hair. The results of smoothening last for 2-3 months, while keratin therapy results last upto 5 months.
Keratin therapy nourishes the hair, repairing it from inside out, and adds extreme shine and softness to the hair. Makes hair healthier and stronger with each application. On the other hand, smoothening use harsh chemicals leading to brittle, dry hair. Hair gets weaker with each application, thus leading to hair fall.
The Application time also varies in the two. In keratin treatment it takes around 2.5 to 3 hours while for Smoothening it takes approximately 5-6 hours to complete the entire process.
The shine and softness offered by keratin also bring along a waterfall effect. It is all about introducing protein – keratin – to hair and therefore protecting them from environmental factors like dust, pollution, UV rays etc. When your hair lacks protein, keratin therapy helps in refilling it back into your hair cortex to rejuvenate protein bonds. Unlike smoothening, keratin restores nature protein and doesn’t alter or damage the hair structure completely.
