Do you need help on deciding if either our Cezanne Keratin Smoothing Treatment or our Chemical Straightening would be best for you? Well we are here to help!
We often get asked for the comparison between both services, so we thought we’d help distinguish the differences of the two here! Check it out below.
Our Cezanne Keratin Smoothing Treatments
The purpose of our Cezanne Keratin Smoothing Treatments is to smooth over frizziness & flyaways. They do not straighten your hair, instead they tame hair. This treatment is ideal for anyone with frizzy, untameable hair.
Another amazing thing about the our Cezanne Keratin Treatments is that you can wash, style & tie up your hair immediately after getting it done! Unlike most keratin treatments that need time to bond with the hair, Cezanne seals into the hair before you leave the salon, meaning you can go back to your normal everyday activities straight away.
The Cezanne Keratin Treatments can last from 2 – 6 months, depending on how often you wash & style your hair, as well as your lifestyle. These treatments will eventually fade over time.
When it comes to colouring your hair, we recommend colouring your hair after getting the Cezanne Keratin Treatments, as the treatment can actually make your hair fade. It is safe to do your colour straight after your appointment, however if we need to lighten your hair with bleach, we do recommend this be done first.
It is super important to use sulphate free shampoo & conditioners once having the Keratin Treatment done, as sulphates are a strong cleaning agent that will strip the treatment from your hair & compromise the longevity.
Our Chemical Straightening Services
On the other hand, our Chemical Straightening services permanently straighten your hair. This is ideal for anyone who straightens their hair regularly, as this does all the work for you.
The chemical straightening can last anywhere between 2 – 6 months, depending on how quickly your hair grows. The straightening grows out like a regrowth colour so when you return you will only need a regrowth application to keep those curls at bay.
With the chemical straightening, it is important you don’t wash, style or tie up your hair for at least 24 hours after getting the straightening done. The longer you leave your hair, the better it is for the longevity of this treatment. However if you are needing to wash, style or tie it up, then wait at least 24 hours before doing so.
When it comes to colouring your hair, we recommend getting your colour done prior to getting it chemically straightened. This is so we can penetrate through your hair with the colour without the barrier from the straightening products.
With our Chemical straightening you are free to use a shampoo and conditioner of your choice however we do recommend using treatments regularly to help keep your hair silky smooth.
So, in short, our Cezanne Keratin Smoothing Treatments are for taming frizziness & flyaways, that wont necessarily straighten your hair. Where as the Chemical Straightening’s purpose is to permanently change the bonds in your hair to straighten.
Overall, the Cezanne Keratin Treatments are far less damaging to your hair, as the process is much more gentle on the hair folicles. However, with proper at home maintenance & product use, the Chemical Straightening can be managed without damage.
