Frequently Asked Questions
1- What is L’Abrea Keratin Treatment?
L’Abrea uses an advanced method for relaxing and straightening the hair. It is 100% Australian made and is vegan certified with 95% natural ingredients. It is completely different from traditional keratin treatments, that were formerly based on formaldehyde and ammonia chemicals, and required a three-day waiting period before washing the hair. L’Abrea’s new technology allows you to wash the hair in less than one hour, after completing the treatment.
2 – How often do I need to repeat L’Abrea Keratin Treatment?
L’Abrea Keratin Treatment lasts between 3-5 months, depending on the texture of the hair. If the hair is very frizzy or curly hair it is recommended to repeat the treatment after 90 days, to achieve a better result. For longer lasting straightening results, we strongly recommend using L’Abrea Aftercare Shampoo and Conditioner – SLES free, to prolong results.
3 – Can I colour, bleach or lighten hair on the same day that I apply L’Abrea Keratin Treatment?
It is not recommended to use any chemical treatments within 48 hours after applying the keratin treatment. Always consult your hairdresser.
4 – What are the benefits of using L’Abrea Keratin Treatment?
L’Abrea gives long-lasting straightening effects, which significantly reduces the time taken to style the hair using hair dryers or straightening irons. This definitely suits today’s modern and busy lifestyles.
Hair naturally looses its keratin protein from daily activities such as washing and styling. L’Abrea Keratin Treatment replenishes the hair with keratin, giving softer, shinier and healthier hair.
5 – Why should I choose L’Abrea Keratin Treatment over other keratin products available on the market?
Almost all keratin treatment products contain formaldehyde and those that say they are formaldehyde-free usually contain other chemicals that release formaldehyde during the treatment. Always check! Formaldehyde is extremely toxic to all those exposed in the same room during the treatment. Research has shown that formaldehyde is linked with causing cancer as well as causing skin, scalp, nasal and eye irritations. Hairdressers are the most vulnerable, due to repeated exposure.

L’Abrea stands apart from other brands in the market because laboratory analysis has confirmed that the L’Abrea Keratin Treatment is completely formaldehyde-free. By choosing L’Abrea you are NOT putting your health at risk and you are achieving a better result in terms of straightening and hair health.
6 – How many treatments can we get from one bottle (1 litre) of L’Abrea Keratin Treatment?
There are 20 – 25 treatments in a 1-litre bottle, depending on the length of the hair.
7 – How effective will the results be for very curly hair, using L’Abrea Keratin Treatment?
L’Abrea reduces the density of the curl and the frizziness. The outcome is dependant on the texture of the hair. For more effective results you can repeat the treatment.
8 – What kind of flat iron should be used for straightening?
A straightening iron that can be heated up to 230°C is recommended. Try L’abrea’s customised hot irons for the best result.
9 – Should I recommend any special products to maintain the hair after applying L’Abrea Keratin Treatment?
To achieve a longer lasting result from the treatment, we highly recommend that you use the L’Abrea Aftercare Shampoo and Conditioner – both are SLES free. Most regular shampoos and conditioners contain salt, which opens the hair cuticles, leading to loss of keratin.
10 – If hair has been chemically treated (coloured, straightened etc), can I use L’Abrea Keratin Treatment without damaging or breaking the hair?
Yes! L’Abrea Keratin Treatment actually rebuilds the keratin that is lost in hair during chemical treatments. Using L’Abrea will result in stronger and healthier hair.
