5 Signs That It’s Time For A Keratin Treatment

by Anjelina Tongco

Getting a keratin treatment can be life-changing. Yes, it may sound like an exaggeration, especially if you’re someone who hasn’t tried it yet, but the confidence boost that having great hair gives you is really something. So, when should you go for a keratin treatment? Here are some signs to watch out for. 

  1. Your hair won’t stay straight - does it sometimes feel like, no matter how much time you spend with a hair straightening iron on your hair in front of the mirror, your hair just won’t stay straight? Your hair doesn’t hate you and it’s not just being stubborn either. It might just be in need of a serious keratin therapy session. Indulge in a keratin hair mask every once in a while to get your hair back to its former glory. 
  2. Your just bleached your hair again - bleaching your hair regularly damages your hair. If you’re starting to notice a lot more frizz than usual after bleaching your hair again, it might be time to get started on that keratin treatment. Don’t have the budget to go to a salon yet? Give keratin-infused haircare products a try in the meantime. These may not have as big of an effect as an actual keratin treatment, but it can definitely help “heal” the damage that bleaching caused your hair. 
  3. Your split ends are starting to show - everyone has a few split ends here and there but if yours are starting to show even when you have your hair up or pulled back then now might be the best time for you to start looking into getting a keratin hair treatment. Split ends usually get tamed down when you brush them as you put your hair back or pull it back. If your split ends are starting to become untamable, however, it’s a sign that your hair is severely damaged and needs TLC. And, while a keratin treatment won’t make those split ends disappear, they’ll help tame them back down and make your hair smoother. To get rid of your split ends completely, though, you’re going to have to go for a trim. 
  4. Your hair is always dry and dull - if your hair is dry, rough, dull, and always tangled up, it needs moisture and it needs a lot of it. So, how do you get your hair moisturized, you ask? Well, for starters you could switch to a more hydrating shampoo and conditioner combo then you can follow up with a good keratin treatment. 
  5. It’s getting more humid - now that winter’s almost over, the air will start to get hotter and more humid again so don’t be alarmed if you see your hair acting up and looking frizzier than ever. To counter the frizziness, you can pamper your locks with a nice keratin treatment at the spa or at home. It’ll smooth out your hair and make it soft and shiny as well.
