The Science Of Keratin

Why is keratin hair smoothing so effective?  It all comes down to the science around keratin!  Keratin is a protein and the major component in hair, skin and nails. 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).

When your hair is damaged by heated styling tools, chemical treatments or environmental factors such as the sun, the keratin in your hair depletes.  This exposes the hair’s cortex, making it susceptible to additional damage, and causes porous areas to develop.

A Keratin Complex Hair Smoothing treatment at a Contemporary Salon will replenish the lost keratin and correct the porosity issues.  The result is smoother hair that is strong and healthy, with greater elasticity.


Keratin Complex Hair Smoothing Treatments

The Keratin Hair Smoothing Treatments at Contemporary Salons in North Yorkshire penetrate the cuticle to reduce frizz and curls, making the hair stronger, smoother and healthier.  Styling and drying time will also be reduced and the results last up to five months.

Keratin smoothing can also be used on coloured hair, helping to lock in your hair colour so it remains vibrant for longer.  Just ask for our colour-locking keratin treatment to be added onto your hair colouring appointment - it only adds an extra 15 minutes to your appointment.

We also offer a 1-hour express keratin treatment that reduces frizz, curl and daily styling time for up to 6 weeks.

Do Hair Smoothing Treatments Straighten The Hair?

Can I Get A Hair Smoothing Treatment If I Am Pregnant?


As with any hair service involving chemicals, pregnant or nursing women should seek the advice of their doctor or physician before use.

What Is Keratin And Why Is It Used For Hair Smoothing Treatments?


Keratin is a protein found naturally in skin, hair, and nails. In human hair, it acts as both an external protective shield and an internal structural protein. Keratin is depleted when hair is damaged physically, chemically or from environmental factors, such as the sun. That's where our restorative, transformative treatments come in!

Can I Have a Hair Smoothing Treatment With Coloured Hair?


Yes. Keratin smoothing can also be used on coloured hair, helping to lock in your hair colour so it remains vibrant for longer. Just ask for our colour-locking keratin treatment to be added onto your hair colouring appointment at Contemporary Salons. It only adds an extra 15 minutes to your appointment.
