Frequently Asked Questions About Smoothing Treatments at Hair Canvas

What is Keratin?

Keratin is a protein found naturally in skin, hair, and nails. Keratin is depleted when hair is damaged physically, chemically or from environmental factors, such as the sun.

How long will my appointment be?

Your appointment time can vary depending on the service(s) chosen, length and density of your hair. It can range from 1 to 3 hours. For a more accurate time, let’s set up a consult and we will include your estimated timing for your service(s).

Could I get my color done the same day?

The short answer is Yes! Some of the treatments are actually meant to repair the hair. Most of the treatments can enhance the vibrancy of your color.

How soon can I shampoo and style my hair again?

Depending on the treatment, it ranges from 24 to 72 hours. No worries! I will make sure to give you all the details you will need in the consult and on the day of your service.

How often can the smoothing treatments be performed?

You can get a treatment done very 6 to 8 weeks. However some of the treatments can last up to 5 months.

Can I get a smoothing treatment if I am pregnant or nursing?

As with any chemical service, pregnant or nursing women should seek the advice of their physician before use.

How long will the smoothing treatment results last?

It varies depending on the treatment you received. They can last from 6 weeks up to 5 months. In order to maintain the longevity of the treatment and get the best results, it is best to use the recommended shampoos, conditioners, and styling products that pair with your treatment.

I already use sulfate free products. Can’t I just use what I already have?

I’m glad you found a product that you love and that works well for you. However to get the best and longest lasting results, it is recommended to use the designated shampoo, conditioner, and styling products specific for your treatment.

I have curly hair. Will this take away my curls?

The treatments focus more on curl reduction. The amount of curl that gets reduced is based on the treatment chosen and your at home routine. Some of the treatments can focus just on calming down your frizz, which would be a great alternative for those that want to keep their curl and just reduce the amount of frizz present.

How do I know which one is right for me?

Great question. Consultations are your best friend and mine. Consultations allow for me to get to know more about your lifestyle and your hair goals. Together we will choose the best option or options and tailor each service to you.
