Smoothing Treatments 

What is a Keratin Smoothing Treatment for Hair?

To explain what a Keratin Smoothing Treatment is, let’s start with what it isn’t. It is not a straightening treatment or a relaxer. Traditional straightening and relaxing applications break the hair’s bonds. Keratin Smoothing Treatment does not break the hair’s bonds. Instead, the keratin deposits in the cortex of the hair and also bonds with the hair shaft during the treatment to strengthen it while reducing frizziness and damage caused by humidity or color and chemical treatments. Keratin Smoothing Treatments make your hair softer and more manageable. The benefit of immediately resuming your active lifestyle is key. You can blow-dry and style your hair immediately after the treatment is applied.


What Keratin Smoothing Treatment Brand does Salon Ziba work with?

The two brands we have been the most loyal to are the Brazilian Blowout and Cezanne Keratin Smoothing Treatment  

Through the use of breakthrough bonding technologies, these customizable smoothing treatments actually improve the condition of the hair by creating a protective protein layer around the hair shaft to eliminate frizz and smooth the cuticle.


How Long Do Smoothing Treatments Last?

Cezanne offers a variety of keratin smoothing treatments for different hair types, which last for different lengths of time. The Express and Express Blonde Treatments last up to ten weeks. Classic and Ultimate Blonde Treatments can last for up to five months. The Brazilian Blow Out classic can last up to 12 weeks. 

It is very important to understand that the maintenance of the hair after the service will also determine how long the treatment lasts. Clients can talk with their stylists to find out which treatment is best for their hair type and lifestyle. Ultimately, we offer treatments that last different lengths of time.


Styling your hair after you receive a Keratin Smoothing Treatment

Some keratin smoothing treatments restrict what clients can do with their hair for several days after they receive treatment. Not with Cezanne or Brazilian Blowout. As soon as you receive one of our treatments, you can shampoo, condition, brush your hair, put your hair up to go to the gym, or style your hair with a flat iron or curler. Keratin treatments reduce blow dry time by up to 50%, and since they keep your hair healthy and strong, you won’t need to rely on extra styling products to get the look you want. Also, Keratin Treatments allow you to change your look without affecting the treatment. If you want to wear your natural curls one day and flat iron it the next, you can do that without damaging the treatment, your hair cuticles and shafts, or its natural oils.

Tips for taking care of your hair after getting a Keratin Treatment

Whether you choose Cezanne or The Brazilian Blow-Out, each brand recommends its own aftercare, which we highly recommend. Even if you alternate with your regular hair care, it will help keep your hair looking its best and prolong the effects of the smoothing treatment. 

Bessy Corea, the technician at our flagship salon, suggests avoiding saltwater or the pool after a smoothing treatment. The salt and pool chemicals can greatly affect the longevity of a smoothing treatment. “Wear a swimming cap,” she says. “It may look retro, but it will help protect your hair, and use the brand’s hair mask right after.”

Nadya Putri, from the downtown location, does a lot of the Cezanne at our hip Greenwich village location. She says, “Every one of my clients leaves with the Cezanne leave-in Perfector Spray. I am very hesitant to do the service if my client is not committed to following through with her side of the deal. Maintenance is everything with the Cezanne Keratin Treatment.”
