    Directions

    This product should be applied by a Professional Stylist Only.

    1. Wash hair two times for chemically treated hair and three times for virgin hair with Keratin Complex Clarifying Shampoo.

    2. Blow dry until hair is 100% dry.

    3. Shake bottle well.Pour immediately 2-3 oz. of Keratin Complex Natural Keratin Smoothing Treatment solution into a bowl. Apply to hair with a brush using 1/2" sections. Comb through every section until hair is completely saturated. (Gloves should be worn during application).

    4. Place hair in cap.

    5. For chemically treated or damaged hair, allow hair to absorb solution for 20 minutes and blow hair to 100% dry. For very resistant, coarse hair, allow hair to absorb solution for 30 minutes and blow hair to 100% dry.

    6. With a heat resistant comb, divide hair into 4 sections.

    7. Using a 450 degree flat iron, start at the nape of the neck taking 1/8 inch sections. Slowly move the iron from root to ends 5-7 times (7-10 times for extremely curly, coarse hair) infusing the keratin into the hair shaft. For chemically treated or damaged hair reduce heat to 430 degrees.

    8. After 3 days or 72 hours, hair should be washed with Keratin Complex Care Shampoo and Conditioner.

    Warning: Avoid contact with eyes. If contact occurs, flush eyes with water.

  • What I've Learned From Doing It Myself. It's Not The Salon But... 5 Star Rating
    Unlike some of the other reviewers who have chemically treated hair, I've decided to let my grey hair grow out. It's always been coarse, wavy and yes, frizzy. Eighteen months ago, my stylist talked me into having a Keratin treatment and I had beautiful, predictable hair all summer. When the time came to redo it the cost made me think twice! So...I did it myself then and have done it twice more since. Here is what I've learned.

    First, doing it yourself may not be as long lasting as a salon treatment. (After all, that's why they're the professionals!) The salon's work lasted about six months while mine lasted about three - but that's OK - because I'm still saving money.

    Next, don't use too much! Otherwise you'll walk around for three days with heavy, greasy, flat hair and you just can't wait to wash it! When you "paint" it on, start at the roots and drag it through to the ends. "Less is more" with the Complex here so you might want to leave it in longer than the the directions recommend.

    Finally, think about using a very hot curling iron instead of a flat iron. This will give you some wave, no curls to be sure - but more body.

    If you've lived with frizz forever, you'll have to get used to a whole different approach to caring for your hair. It becomes smooth, healthy looking and manageable and worth the the time and expense. Shhh! Don't tell my stylist!

  • What A Mess 1 Star Rating
    I had my hairdresser apply it! What a disaster! I had long hair that was color treated and it turned the bottom 3 inches into mush! It broke off and I had to get 5" cut off and now the bottom is still a mess! I would have to shave it off to get it back to its original shape! I also have to curl or straight iron to be able to go out of the house! BEWARE!!!!!!

  • Game Changer 5 Star Rating
    If you have curly frizzy hair this is a must try product. This is my experience with it:
    THE PROCESS: I had my friend (who is a stylist) apply the product to my hair. I think it would be too hard to "paint" the product on yourself evenly. However, I left it on for 20 min then I blow dried and flat ironed it myself, which does take some time, you must take very small sections to flatiron and the iron must be up to 450 degrees. If you don't think you're good at flat ironing, have someone do it, this part is important. I didn't smell any strong fumes except when I was blow drying a little bit. I then kept my hair completely straight for 66 hrs, I would go over it in the mornings with the iron, but then I had to go to work and put it in a ponytail and used dry shampoo I just came home flat ironed it again. I finally washed it after about 83 hrs.
    THE RESULTS: My hair is fine, thick, curly/wavy/frizzy. I let it air dry with no product and it still had some curl but a better curl and there wasn't really any frizz. I think with product it would probably turn out nice. I like to wear it straight though and now I can blow dry is with just a flat brush and it looks like I took time to blow it straight with a round brush. The 20 min it use to take to do my hair has been cut to 10 min and it's shiny. People thought I had extensions put in.
    THE BEST PART: I was in a pool area as humid as a sauna and my hair stayed completely smooth and straight! Also it's been raining like crazy and it still stays perfect!
    CONS: The three days it takes with no washing and not being able to put it back sucks. I'm not really sure but other reviews have said their hair was falling out and I think their might be a little extra but nothing that worries me.

  • Amazing Product That Cut My Styling Time Down! 5 Star Rating
    I had this treatment done at a salon a couple years ago and decided that I would try it myself when I found it on folica. I have incredibly thick, curly hair that has a mind of its own and with summer coming up I wanted to find a product that would help to prevent frizz and ease my styling time. I did this all by myself, only asking my fiance to check to make sure I covered everything. From start to finish it took about 4-5 hours, but it was so worth it! It was easy to use, but did have a slight odor. I made sure I had the windows open in the house and a fan going to help. I used the Croc Infrared 1" flat iron on 450. I just washed it yesterday after the 72 hour period and it looks amazing!!!!! I'm so glad that I was able to find this product and do it on my own. Thanks folica!!!

  • You Can Do This Yourself! 5 Star Rating
    I've been having the salon apply the keratin complex for about a year and a half. I don't wash my hair often and can usually stretch it out to 4-5 months. Then this last time I had it done at the end of March and here it is early June and it really needs doing again:( I did take a vacation that involved lots of swimming, so I think that shortened my time this go around. Well I just couldn't make myself pay another $500 to have it done (I have long, really thick hair, and apparently an expensive salon!)...so I decided to try it myself, after all, I've seen it done a few times on my hair and knew what to expect.

    I decided to do it the first morning of a business trip (no meetings until 1:00 so I had lots of time) and I did it in a hotel room so I had uninterrupted time to do it. It came out just like always! I was so happy - yes it is time consuming, and yes it is a bit hard in the back to flat iron the roots, but it saves so much money that now I'm going to do it myself and I won't even have to stretch it out so long!

  • Product Delivers, But Be Careful 5 Star Rating
    The Keratin Complex Smoothing Treatment does the job on my thick, coarse, very curly hair. Initially my hair is shiny and supple, but dulls and dries out over time. I thought that the product would maintain the shine longer, but the absence of frizz and ease of blow drying is worth it. I've heard recently, however, that the heat of the very hot flat iron releases toxins in the air that shouldn't be inhaled, especially in the throat. I'd advise wearing a mask or being in a well ventilated place. The last time I used this product, I did it outside on my deck to avoid the fumes. I also have to leave it in for about 40 minutes to get better results. A lot of work and time, but worth it.

  • Well-worth It's Price! 4 Star Rating
    The bottle will serve you for multiple uses instead of spending $400 or more on one salon treatment. I am hispanic and have ALOT of hair more than normal and it is very curly so i was using the flat iron too much and my hair started to burn and break. i needed a solution and this was it. after the treatment i could straighten my hair in 20 minute with the blow dryer!!!! that beats using the flat iron for 2 hours to get straight hair!! 1=you cant compare 20 min to 2 hours!!!

    without blowdrying ,my hair doesnt have curls anymore which was kind of a downfall bec i cant wear curly hair if i wanted to. i tried curl defining cream and the curls did not come back it was just wavy with the same volume and NO FRIZZ!

  • Love This Product But Could Not Do It By Myself. 4 Star Rating
    I get keritan treatments at my salon but wanted to try it myself to save money. I was not able to do the back of my head without help. Other than that it turned out just fine. I don't like my hair pin straight and by doing it at home using my instyler (which only goes up to 385 degrees) I was able to get the look I wanted. I don't know how long the treatment will last but so far so good. Keritan treatments at the salon usually last 4 months top for me.
