How to Keep Your Hair Straight After a Keratin Treatment

How to Keep Your Hair Straight After a Keratin Treatment 57

The Keratin Treatment Process

Keratin treatment involves adding keratin to the hair in order to smooth it and and decrease frizz. It can give you amazing results to smooth and straighten hair that is naturally curly or wavy and reduce frizz. However if you don't look after it properly the results may fade away quickly after your treatment. The process takes approximately 90 minutes and can decrease your home straightening process by up to 60%. Results can last between 2 and 4 months, depending on your hair type as well as how many times you've had the treatment done. 

Hairstyles from The Oscars 2016 Get The Look 0

Every year at "The Oscars" time, we all get treated to a hairstyle and fashion exhibition from A lister celebrities, and wannabe stars involved in the film industry. Some hairdos and outfits are winners, while others leave you wondering "what where they thinking?"

In 2016, The female Oscar's Hairstyles could best be described as semi casual, simple, soft, & not overly formal. While we did see some updos, most where only half up and half down or just pulled back into simple pony tails. Hairstyles where mostly down styles with loose waves, and with one particular theme of tucking one side behind an ear and exposing that cheek bone.

The men actually outdid the females in my opinion with most of them showing off clean cut, slick back classy hairstyles, most notably the WINNER of BEST Actor Leonardo DiCaprio.

Here are a few 2016 Oscar hairstyles where we style advice and also show you what hair products to use to get the look.

Isla Fisher looked as radiant as always with a          

simple half up-half down hairdo that she

often swept across her right shoulder.

This side view of Isla Fisher shows just how simple

her Oscars Hairdo was, where her hair was teased 

and then pulled back into a simple Pony Tail.

Haircare Products to use to get the look:

Apply Edgy Bodify Styling Spray to damp hair, and then blow-dry and style normally. Bodify will give your hair

beautiful shine and lasting hold.

Cate Blancett looked amazing as usual with
a NEW short Bob hair cut that was smooth
in nature except for a slight wave on one side
while the other side was tucked in behind her ear.
Margot Robbie looked glamorous with a casual
hairstyle you could wear at any special occasion with
long down soft waves, and a middle part that made
her face shape look thinner and slimmer.

Haircare Products to use to get the look:

NFUZION Zero Frizz Serum applied to dry blow waved

hair will provide gloss and shine, while keep those

annoying fly away hairs smooth all night.

Haircare Products to use to get the look:

Edgy Bodify Styling Spray on damp hair will provide

extra body to fine hair types, and lasting hold.

Jennifer Lawrence went for a smooth LOB hairstyle      
with some defining textured pieces through the
longer front layers, with one side yet again tucked
in behind an ear. Simple yet effective.
Lady Gaga went for the classic sculptured
look moulding all hair off her face and forehead.
Soft waves were created to fall down softly
onto her shoulders.  (YES we think it was a WIG)
Haircare Products to use to get the look:

Edgy Sleekifi applied to damp hair will

get your hair looking silky smooth while 

Fiberfi matt paste pinched on the ends will

provide lasting texture.

NFUZION Hair Shaper can be used here to keep the

hairdo in position and to make it last long periods of

time. Apply to dry pre sculptured & finished hair.

Naomi Watts LOB hairdo was a simple almost
smooth look best described as a gentle bend.
The side part helped to balance her face shape
making it less long, while she went along with
the one side tucked behind an ear as well.
Kate Winslet had possibly the worst Oscars
hairdo, or perhaps her stylist used the wrong styling
product? Even tucking one side behind her ear did
not help or stop her hair from looking like she got
caught in the rain or wind outside.

Haircare Products to use to get the look:

Edgy Smoothe n Grume applied to damp hair will

help styling, and to keep this hairstyle looking

silky smooth all night long.

Haircare Products to use to get the look:

will help separate and define natural waves, while

also stopping moisture from making hair flat and 

limp.

Leonardo DiCaprio looked very formal with
his waxed down side parted hairdo.                            
His hair was as polished as his acceptance
speech. Well done we say.
Ryan Seacrest had the night off, but his hairstyle
was as always neat and perfect. Although not as
waxed down as some other male celebrities, the 
hairstyle had a matt finish still had plenty of texture.
Haircare Products to use to get the look:

Apply Edgy Muv n Gruv to damp hair and then

comb into desired shape and leave it to stay

that way all night long.

Hair Styling Products Online Review

Over the last 30 years as a hairstylist, I have personally used and tested many hair care and styling products on my clients, family, and friends hair.

While it’s good to try new products and fragrances, particularly when you get them for free from the retailer in the hope that you write them positive reviews, it definitely goes without saying that not all hair products are made EQUAL.

Many of the styling products I have tried have been complete and utter failures, that didn’t do what they where designed to do at all and in some cases left the hair and hairstyle worse for wear.

How to find the most suited styling product:

So as a “stylish hopeful” where does one start to look or whom should you listen to and TRUST?

Your hairdresser is naturally the first person to ask for advice, but be careful here because in many cases they may be promoting only one or a few select ranges that they have available with biased and invested interests.

Asking friends can be helpful, but be weary because what works for them and their hair type may not work for you.

You should try searching online as this is a good place to begin. Use the web to research, read reviews, compare products, and prices and all from the comfort of your armchair. The more informed that you are, the better chance you will have of finding the best possible styling product for your hair type, and hairstyle requirements.

 

What to look for in a styling product:

Remember that a styling product’s predominate function is to help you recreate your hairstyle, make your job easier, and make it hold and LAST. The list below shows many detailed examples of what different hair styling products have been designed to do.

  • To hold your hairstyle in place over time.
  • To help create volume and body.
  • To add texture and defined shape.
  • To add shine and gloss.
  • To enhance or define natural curls & waves.
  • To help smooth out frizz or unruly hair.
  • To guard and protect hair from heat, styling, and the outdoor elements.
  • To add moisture and seal the cuticle.
  • Wash out in water (water soluble) the good ones.

So look at your current hairstyle and styling needs first, and then choose the best styling product to suit these attributes.

After using several products, there where two haircare styling products that passed the test with flying colours from the EDGY range of styling products. Both products did exactly what they claim to do, help support and hold the hairstyles, while washing out completely (water soluble). 


1: Edgy Smoothe n Grume

This 3 in 1 leave in conditioner and styling cream has a pleasant fresh fruit aroma and is perfect for dry or wrecked hair. You only need to apply a small amount (roughly the size of a dollar coin) on damp hair, to the mid lengths and ends before blow-drying and styling. You will immediately notice how your hair becomes detangled and more durable, easier to comb and brush. The product has a UV protector built into it that will shield your hair protecting it during styling and then afterwards when you venture outdoors.

What completely sold me was how my blow-drying time was actually more than halved. So not only did all my client’s hair look and feel amazing, but it actually saved me valuable styling time while it helped hold their hairdo’s all day too.

PRICE: I rate this as very affordable, only $18.95 for a professional salon quality product 200 mls in size.

Where to buy it:

Edgy Smoothe n Grume is available from most leading hair salons or right  here

 


 

2: Edgy Fiberfi Matt Paste

Is a water-soluble and pliable paste with a strong hold factor used mainly on shorter haircuts that require ragged texture. This product works really well on straight to wavy hair types on both men and women. What I particularly liked about the paste was how it also helped to add volume and body to fine hair types without the sticky effect, and how it completely washes out and does not build up in the hair.

Fiberfi will allow you to place and shape your hair in any way you like and won’t “lock you out” like some other strong hold pastes on the market, meaning that you have time to manipulate the style before it sets.

PRICE: Exceptional price and great value, only $18.95 for 100 grams that should last many months.

Where to buy it:

Edgy Fiberfi Matt Paste is available from most leading hair salons or  here


So once you work out which product is for you, give it a go. I am sure that you will be very impressed as I was.
