Piandre Salon: The Road to Maintenance-Free Hair Starts with the Keratin Complex Smoothing Therapy Treatment

 If just like me, you too have been searching high and low for the treatment that will bring your dry, frizzy, and lifeless hair woes to an end, then you would be happy to know I may have found the answer.

The first time I heard of Keratin Complex treatments was late last year when PIANDRE SALON launched the service and invited a few of us bloggers to a KeraGirl Party. Lo and behold! My hair, which was dry and coarse from all the styling abuse it gets, instantly responded to the quick fix treatment. I swore to return and try the more advanced, intensive treatment that promised long-lasting results.

It took a long while but over the weekend, I finally had the chance to get
the Keratin Complex Smoothing Therapy Treatment.
And look, my hair is frizz-free!

So, what makes the Keratin smoothing treatment different from conventional straightening and relaxing procedures?
Well, for one, it does not rob the hair of its protein bonds to achieve that permanent straight shape that you get when you have a rebond. 
This one actually lets you style your hair straight or wavy while locking the hair follicle with a keratinous bond that:
·      promotes healing;
·      blocks the effects of humidity; and
·      protects the hair from environmental toxins.

For me, however, the most important difference lies in its long-term effects on my hair.
To be honest, I was more than a little apprehensive about subjecting my poor battered tresses to yet another type of treatment. Rebonding and coloring treatments have basically stripped it of all its sheen and luster. The tendency is to keep masking the problem with treatments that are more cosmetic rather than healing in nature. And yes, how many of you have rushed to the salon as soon as the horror of damaged regrowth appears?

Not so with the Keratin Complex Smoothing Therapy Treatment, I am told.
Miss Lina, my favorite stylist from the Piandre branch in Promenade Greenhills assures me that the more often I get the treatment, the healthier my hair would get. It is a therapy, after all, meant to revitalize and rejuvenate the hair. By infusing natural keratin deep into the hair shaft, it becomes stronger, shinier, and more manageable.

Oh and I noticed how it added brilliance to my hair color, too!

As far as the process goes, it is pretty much the same. The hair is shampooed and blow-dried loosely before Keratin Complex solution is applied and allowed to seep in while the hair is wrapped in a plastic cap for about half an hour. Then, the hair is ironed and voila! The hair is remarkably frizz-free and shiny and radiant-looking - all in a matter of under three hours!

I'm told you'll have virtually maintenance-free hair for five to eight months max depending on how well you care for your hair which basically involves using shampoo that is free of sulfates and sodium chloride, plus a deep conditioner that contains active ingredients to help keep the results of the treatment more long-lasting.

  23. Hi! my name is Rachel and I'm a hairstylist from Fort Lauderdale Florida! I love Keratin Complex products! Have you seen the different types of new smoothing therapy that they now offer? They have smoothing treatments that work for as long as five months! They have other treatments that can have no waiting period after the application and they have cheaper or more expensive ones. The ones that cost more require more time in the salon, but can even repair the damage made with bleaching your hair blonde. If you haven't been to thier site and checked out the new products you really should and find a salon that offers that type that you want. Check out if you want to find the right smoothing therapy that fits your hair! You really have pretty hair!
