It is a semi-permanent hair treatment that can last from 3 to 4 months, depending on how you care for it.

It is a great option for anyone with curly, frizzy, or unmanageable hair who wants to achieve a sleek and smooth look without the hassle of daily styling.

The Keratin Brazilian Blow Dry treatment is based on the use of keratin, a protein that is naturally found in hair, nails, and skin. During the treatment, a keratin-based solution is applied to the hair, which is then sealed in using a flat iron. The heat from the flat iron helps to activate the keratin, which then bonds with the hair, creating a smooth and shiny surface.
