Q: Should the hair be colored before or after the treatment application?
A: A great time to have the treatment done is directly after permanent color, semi-permanent color or highlights. The treatment seals the color in, making it last longer and appear more vibrant. If you choose to have color applied after the treatment, we recommend waiting at least two weeks.  Make an appointment with one of our hair color specialists at Rubies Hair Studio for beautiful hair color to compliment your new silky smooth hair.

Q: Should the hair be cut before or after the treatment?

A: We recommend that the hair be cut after the treatment, as the hair will have a smoother texture and will lie differently.  You can make an appointment at our San Diego hair salon for a stylish cut after the treatment.

Q: Can the treatments be done on chemically treated, relaxed or straightened hair?
A: Yes; in fact, the Smoothing Therapy treatments work to repair damage caused by chemical treatments. It is recommended to wait two weeks between any chemical services and adjust iron temperature based on hair type as listed in instructions.

Q: How many days after the Natural Keratin Smoothing Treatment before the hair can get wet or be washed?
A: You must wait three days (72 hours) before washing your hair or swimming.

Q: What should be done if the hair gets wet during the 72-hour waiting period?
A: Blow-dry and flat iron with medium to low heat as soon as possible.

Q: What kind of shampoo and conditioner should be used?

Q: How often can the Smoothing Therapy treatments be performed?

A: The treatment can be done as often as every 4 to 6 weeks.  

Q: Is the reapplication of the Keratin Complex Smoothing Therapy treatments done on the entire head or just on the new growth?
A: Reapplication is done on the entire head.

Q: How long will the Keratin Complex Smoothing Therapy treatment results last?
A: The Natural Keratin Smoothing Treatment lasts up to five months, and Express Blow Out up to six weeks, depending on lifestyle, maintenance and adherence to all aftercare instructions.

Q: What should I do to maintain my treatment results?
A: It’s important to use a sodium chloride-free shampoo, like Keratin Care Shampoo, which will not strip keratin from the hair. Intense Rx Ionic Keratin Protein Restructuring Serum contains 25% keratin protein and offers instant damage repair for split ends and breakage. Infusion Keratin Replenisher replenishes keratin when used as a daily styling aid, while hydrating and creating a smooth, shiny finish. The new Style Therapy styling product collection works in harmony with our Smoothing Therapy treatments to main results while improving the hair’s styling capabilities.

Q: Can the treatments be done on pregnant or nursing women?
A: It is not recommended.
