More About the Treatment
The Global Keratin hair treatment is a keratin-based treatment that straightens hair naturally without harsh chemicals. It is a reconditioning treatment that transforms the hair and restores shine. This incredible treatment is designed for people who have curly, frizzy and damaged hair! By infusing keratin deep into the hair cuticle, Global Keratin uses hair’s natural ingredient to achieve radical shine, beautiful smoothness and healthy, manageable style. Everyone can benefit from GK Treatments, even over-processed and chemically damaged hair. In fact, the more damaged the better and the longer the treatment lasts. It deeply reconditions and repairs, making it so much more than just a straightening system.
The immediate result is soft, shiny, healthy & luxurious – and unlike other chemical treatments and relaxers, can be used on coloured or chemically straightened hair.
Before and After Results
“I was so impressed with the results, my hair was so out of control and I just can’t believe how well this product works. My hair feels so healthy and it looks soft and shiny." Lauren
Here are some more Before and After shots:
Developed in Brazil, GKT’s formulation is kinder on hair, improving its condition and restoring resiliency to leave hair strong and elastic. Better yet, it weatherproofs hair against flyaway frizz and the effects of moisture. When hair is gorgeous, shiny and manageable every day, the time required to style at home is reduced!
GKT is cheaper than permanent hair straightening and because it’s not permanent, can be washed out if desired. It can even be used over previous GK Treatments, leaving hair in better condition after each successive application. The GK Treatment is more natural looking as the hair is not made pin straight – it still has body and bounce – and lasts up to 4 months, eventually washing out.
The treatment eradicates unsightly frizz and maximizes shine, whilst nourishing and boosting condition. Your hair is always left feeling soft and smooth with stunning results, which are visible immediately after the treatment. Unmanageable hair nightmares are now a thing of the past!
The Science Of Keratin Treatments
Hair shafts consist of 3 parts: Cuticle, Medulla and Cortex.
Keratin is a natural protein high in sulphur and amino acids that already exists in your hair, which makes it tough, elastic and insoluble. It has been determined that a good dose of keratin applied directly to your hair can repair it from its very core, and recover the strength, elasticity and moisture that is lost through the years.
The Global Keratin treatment is actually kind on your hair and works by repairing your hair while easing away curls, taking out the frizz and unlocking waves or kinks wherever they occur. Keratin is infused into the hair locking in protein to leave your hair more shiny and packed with vitality.
The cuticle is the outer layer of hair shaft, which is made up of overlapping transparent keratin cells. It works like protective scales and defines smoothness and shininess – because it can be seen and touched. The cuticle may get damaged by chemical processes, overexposure to sunlight (UV), too much heat from a dryer, abusive brushing and combing, over-chlorinated swimming pool water, etc.
The cortex is where moisture and natural pigment (called "melanin") are held.
The Medulla is the core of hair shaft.
Damaged hair/cuticle cannot be repaired by itself once it is damaged.
