First stop is Edit Salon. Keratin (Straightening) is currently conquering the hair industry with its Brazilian blowout results. It is a mix of hair repair and hair straightener as it smoothens and straightens frizz or waves which lasts up to about three months. However, one should be very careful before sitting down and opting for the Keratin treatment. A number of countries have banned this treatment as some brands include an alarming amount of formaldehyde. Make sure to ask the stylist about the brand and if you can, check the back of the bottle for its components or quickly Google the brand. Edit Salon offers Keratin from $275. That is within the normal cost of Keratin hair straightening treatments. Edit Salon also offers a more subtle hair straightener service, the Relaxer.

Choosing a salon can be difficult at times. It’s actually not as easy as phoning the salon or the stylist, go there, sit for an hour or up to three hours and leave it up to whoever attends to you. Undergoing hair treatments or hairstyle changes requires a two way communication from the client and the stylist. It is also not so good to hop from one salon to another. Not only will you miss developing good rapport with the stylist but it can also cause damage to your hair or can result in hideous hair color or style, especially if you haven’t kept a record of the treatments you have taken.
So be patient in choosing the right salon for you. Also, explain to the stylist what you really want. Showing them the desired look or hairstyle can do so much, you see, not everyone has good imagination. Now, if unfortunately you’re honestly not happy with the results tell the stylist straight away rather than running away and talking bad about him or her. This will not help both of you. Telling them right away will help him or her figure out the best solution or a remedy the soonest. Everybody deserves a second chance.
Tips for hair straightener treatments:
- Make sure that you really want to have a straight hair. Some straightening treatments make your hair too straight and smooth that if you curl them it has no effect.
- Take good care of your hair. Use conditioner at least 3 times a week and repair shampoos or cream at least once or twice a month.
- Trim your hair every month or two, this not only fastens the growth of your hair but also eliminates the split ends as a result of hair straightener treatments.
The key to it all is to be honest with your stylist. Inform the stylist whatever you did to your hair, everything! From the brands you use to the do it yourself products that you have applied to your hair. They know better, so they deserve to know everything about your hair.
