Keratin Treatment and How it Affects Hair Coloring!

Keratin Treatment no doubt has a lot of benefits. With this breakthrough treatment women can now live with straighter and more manageable hair. In fact, keratin treatment is such a wonder women who had to do their hair for hours can now style their hair in as little as 20 minutes. And unlike other hair treatments that obviously demarcate treated hair from new untreated hair, keratin treatment washes off so after three months you don’t get stuck a mixture of half straight half curly hair do. But with all hair styles women yearn for, a question they frequently ask is how well does keratin treatment go with hair colorings? We at RG Cosmetics will help you answer these queries.

RG keratin treatment goes well with hair coloring

If you have your hair colored before getting a keratin treatment, the color is usually brightened and made more appealing. In fact after a keratin treatment, highlights become more visible because of the additional luster of your hair. If you want to color your hair and get a keratin treatment at the same day, ideally you should have your hair colored first. The color gets sealed in together with the keratin during the procedure so it looks more natural and lasts longer. However, some of the dye can actually wash off when you get a keratin treatment so you might want to tell your stylist to color your hair a couple of shades darker. A lot of women who dye their graying hair roots regularly ask whether it’s safe to color hair after a keratin treatment. The answer is yes. However, to get the best effects of keratin treatment, it’s very important to wait two weeks before getting your hair dyed. Also ammonia-free products are preferred. Some women say permanent dyes can have negative affect a keratin treatment while others say it has no effect. This would definitely depend on the type of hair you have, what dye you use and how often you wash your hair. If you’re having doubts about coloring your hair, you can color a discreet strand of hair and see if it turns out okay. This way you can easily cut away the strand if you don’t like the effect. If you find that permanent dyes are ruining your keratin treatment you try out different semi-permanent dyes.

RG Cosmetics helps in keeping keratin treatment more enjoyable

To prolong the color and keratin treatment you can use our RG Cosmetics shampoo and conditioners as they are designed to help rejuvenate hair and prevent the appearance of split ends. In addition, keep a bottle of Keratin X-press in your pocket to help keep your hair nourished and adequately hydrated so that you can keep the shine and lovely coloring longer. Furthermore, don’t wash your hair too often. In fact wash hair only when you have to and don’t forget to properly rinse off the shampoo and conditioner. When styling use a wide tooth comb and as much as possible avoid curling irons. If you must use heat to style, Argan Oil is ideal after color and keratin treatment for hair protection against heat and styling. Hopefully these simple answers will help you get a better understanding of keratin treatment and hair colorings.

    I had a Keratin treatment done months ago, the problem came after around 3 weeks I had highlights done, after that my hair was frizzy again so I wasted all the money on a Kertain treatment, so I assume highlights and Keratin do not go together?

      Well, with highlights they will have to use bleaching reagents like hydrogen peroxide so they can take off the actual hair colour . This chemicals are very harsh on the hair so it will have to penetrant the keratin layer as well as the hair to get the effect.
      I did something similar to you . I had the highlights was so perfect and expensive ash colours and then had the treatment and all the colour was out and I was left with ugly yellow highlights.
      My stylist adviced me to wait 2-3 weeks then do at home amonia free hair dye to cover the yellow. I’ll be doing that next week finger s crossed

    I dyed my hair at the salon ash with platinum highlights. Then I waited approximately a month and did a keratin treatment for my hair which changed my hair colour to a light brown and turned the highlights to blonde. I’m feeling very bothered with the colour that I have now, at the same time I don’t wanna go get it fixed cause my hair needs to relax from the dye and bleach. Any suggestions on what I should do now?
