Frequently Asked Questions
What are the benefits of getting a keratin treatment?The benefits are endless. From faster hair drying times to a sleek, frizz free, and sophisticated look, our clients come from across Sydney to make having a great hair day, every day, easy and obtainable. If you want great hair without having to fuss with full blow dries, straighteners, and smoothing agents every day, then a keratin treatment is for you. Our regular clients include busy professionals, Moms, and those who want to toss their crown of glory without having to spend hours styling or in the salon. Further still, a number of our clients have naturally thick, coarse, and frizzy hair they want to smooth down–without pursuing a chemical straightening treatment. If you have been considering opting for harsh chemicals, we recommend speaking with our team or any specialist keratin provider first. Proven to benefit the hair, nourish each strand, and strengthen the cuticle, we know that you’ll be glad that you did.
Is a keratin treatment the same as a Brazilian Blowout?No–keratin is a naturally occurring protein that exists in our skin, hair, and nails. Due to the aging process, environmental damage, heat styling, colouring, and bleaching, and some health conditions, our natural levels of keratin can decline. The HeadSpa keratin treatments infuse the protein back into the strands to create a frizz-free, smooth, sleek look. A Brazilian Blowout is a chemically-derived hair treatment that was first created in Brazil and relies on branded products and techniques to complete the official service. We do not use Brazilian Blowout products in our HeadSpa salons. Instead, we have designed and produced our own in-huse keratin treatment and aftercare formulas that are free from harsh chemicals, formaldehyde, and cruelty free.
Will keratin fry, damage, or dry out my hair?In summary, no. By reintroducing and infusing more keratin back into the hair, you are strengthening each strand, reducing frizz, and making the hair stronger. Quite the contrary, keratin treatments can fortify the hair cuticle, nourish each strand, and increase the natural protein building blocks back into the hair.
How long do the results from a keratin treatment last?We expect to see results from each keratin treatment to last 3-4 months, however, the time in between appointments is typically extended after each visit. After regularly visiting HeadSpa, we have some clients only return for their follow-up appointment after 5-6 months.
How much does a keratin treatment cost at HeadSpa in Sydney?HeadSpa calculates the cost of each service with a base charge for the appointment and then an additional surcharge depending on the length and thickness of each client’s hair. (Clients with fine hair that sits above the shoulders are not charged this additional fee.) You can check out our pricing guide above to get an estimate of your total appointment cost or ask any of our friendly hair technicians.
How long does it take to get a keratin treatment at HeadSpa?Efficiency and effectiveness is at the heart of everything we do. Regardless of your hair length or density, we have streamlined our service time to a maximum 2 - 2.5 hours per client so you can look and feel great and get on with your day. Almost every one of our clients feels confident enough to return to work, go to an event, or hit the town after their appointment. Why? Because there is no down time required, no chemical smell, and no need to hide away after your treatment. Your hair will be sleek, smooth, and styled ready to face whatever the day (or night!) brings.
What should I do to look after my keratin treatment after the appointment?Great question! HeadSpa has designed a range of after-care products that can help extend the life of your new sleek look. First things first, we always recommended avoiding products with sodium sulphates–they will speed up the breakdown of your keratin proteins and shorten the length of your smooth results. (The same goes for our products and any others you may use!) Next, we always recommend applying L’Abrea’s Deep Repair mask every 3-5 weeks for intense hydration. While keratin treatments can give you the smooth locks you’re after, dehydration frizz can be a real problem. To deeply moisturise your hair and ensure the fly-aways stay where they’re meant to (down), we suggest applying the Deep Repair mask to give your strands the full TLC it deserves.
Are HeadSpa keratin products cruelty free?Absolutely. We care about HeadSpa’s effect on our clients, animals, and the environment and every one of our in-house made products are cruelty-free, certified vegan, and never tested on animals. Better yet, over 98% of our keratin treatment formula ingredients are naturally-derived meaning you’re making the right choice for you and the planet.
Do HeadSpa keratin products include formaldehyde?No. No products formulated by L’Abrea Cosmetics include any trace of formaldehyde–and we have the testing to prove it! Different from traditional Brazilian Blowout techniques and products, our HeadSpa founder Maryam Geddes, was committed to creating a naturally-derived, effective, and harsh chemical-free product that was safe for clients and hair technicians alike. And she did it! If you have any questions about the safety of our formulas or ingredients, please contact our team.
How long until I can wash my hair after a keratin treatment?Unlike other keratin treatments that require you to avoid washing your hair for multiple days, there is no leave-in time for our keratin treatment in Sydney. You can wash and colour your hair on the same day and use bleach two days after. We suggest incorporating L’Abrea’s aftercare products into your hair care routine to maintain long-term results. We offer a shampoo and conditioner that’s enriched with nourishing ingredients and is free from salts that open the hair cuticles and lead to a loss of keratin. With these aftercare products in your kit, you’ll enjoy lusciously smooth hair while keeping frizz at bay.
How do you sleep with a keratin treatment?While some keratins require you to keep your hair as straight as possible over a three-day long period, you can use scrunchies to tie your hair up after our treatment. If you find your hair goes wiry, you can straighten that part with a flat iron before your first shampoo.
Can I tie my hair after a keratin treatment in Sydney?After 24 hours, you can tie your hair with a scrunchie or clip.
Why is my hair frizzy after a keratin treatment?If you experience dryness or frizziness after your keratin Sydney treatment, we recommend using L’Abrea’s Deep Repair mask that offers intense hydration, giving you smooth and straight locks. To purchase this rejuvenating, high-impact mask, chat to Head Spa’s team during your keratin treatment in Sydney.
