Keratin treatments have become increasingly popular in recent years as a way to smooth out frizzy and unruly hair. One great aspect of getting this kind of treatment is that you can do it right at home, but is it really worth the hassle? Here’s what you need to know about keratin treatment at home: the pros and cons.
Table of Contents
- Cost: Getting a Keratin treatment done at a salon can be very expensive, but doing it at home will save you some significant money- typically about half what you’d spend in a salon.
- Convenience: If you’re someone who likes the convenience of being able to take care of their own beauty needs from the comfort of their own home, then doing Keratin treatment at home is a great option for you.
- Less Potential Damage To Your Hair: In-salon keratin treatments utilize harsh chemicals that can do some serious damage if left on for too long or applied incorrectly. This damage can range from frizziness and breakage all the way up to chemical burns and an overly dried out texture—none of which are very pleasant! At-home treatments however offer far less potential risk due to their vegan formulas, which contain natural ingredients like aloe vera, honey, and essential oils instead of chemical-based ones. These types of options ensure minimal damage while maximizing hydration for healthy and shiny locks each time.
- Safer For Your Health: In-salon treatments may contain certain chemical irritants that can be hazardous when inhaled over prolonged periods of time (if there’s not enough ventilation present). This makes breathing air in those rooms difficult and potentially unhealthy – especially if one has asthma or other respiratory conditions. That’s why home treatments are better in this regard as they don’t produce any fumes when being washed out in your own bathroom where there is plenty of fresh air available!
- Difficult to Measure Results: It’s much easier for an experienced stylist to measure the progress and ensure that your application is even; something that’s much harder if you don’t have much experience with doing your own hair.
- Messy Process: Applying a keratin treatment can be very messy and time consuming; one bad move or mistake could cost you several hours worth of clean up and redoing sections of your hair.
- Possible Irritation: Some people are allergic or sensitive to certain ingredients used in chemical treatments, so there’s no guarantee that you won’t react negatively when trying one out on your own at home. Additionally, not measuring the exact amounts necessary for successful application may mean either too little or too much product is used which could lead to chemical burns, allergic reactions, or other problems.
- In conclusion, if cost savings and convenience are important factors in deciding whether or not to get a Keratin treatment done at home rather than going to a salon, keep in mind all potential risks as well as all potential benefits before making any decisions!
