PROFESSIONAL STYLISTS: Sharpen your skills


Color Lock & Smooth Keratin Treatment

A 2-in-1 Treatment with KERABOND™ Technology that locks in hair color and prevents fading, extending its life and vibrancy; it also acts as an express keratin smoothing treatment that keeps the curl and controls frizz. It coats the hair shaft and penetrates the cuticle, instantly revealing a healthy luster and high impact shine.

It takes approximately 20 minutes longer than a regular blow dry.

Up to 4 to 6 weeks.

All people immediately after a color/highlight service, the client that wants smooth frizz free hair with minimal curl reduction, and also straight hair clients that just need smoothing.

Yes. Color Lock and Smooth Treatment can be applied to any type of hair. A stylist should analyze the hair and conduct a thorough consultation to determine the porosity of the hair and that it can withstand the high heat of the flat iron. If hair is damaged to the point it cannot take the heat of the iron it is not recommended to perform the service. Use Keratherapy Deep Conditioning Masque instead to help reconstruct, repair, hydrate and strengthen the hair in preparation to have one of the Extended or Express treatments.

It will give you minimal curl reduction.

Keratherapy Clean Start Pre-Treatment Shampoo

Keratherapy’s Keratin Infused Moisture, Volume or Color Protect shampoo instead of the Clean Start Pre-Treatment Shampoo.

Yes, wait 24 hours before shampooing at home with Keratherapy Shampoo and Conditioner.

Any of the Keratherapy Keratin Infused aftercare products: Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner, Leave-In Conditioning Spray, Deep Conditioning Masque, Volume Shampoo & Conditioner, Root Boost & Volumizer, Color Protect Shampoo & Conditioner, Perfect Blowout, Perfect Hold Hairspray, Perfect Finish Hairspray, Rapid Rescue, Daily Smoothing Cream, Argan Oil, Dry Shampoo, Nourishing Styling Foam and Perfect Match.

It can dramatically improve the look, longevity, and vibrancy of all hair-color. It is a simple, quick add-on service that can generate significant revenue with an existing client base and is a great introduction to the Smoothing category for clients who have yet to get involved.

It is not recommended to perform services of this type on clients that are pregnant or breastfeeding as no clinical testing has been done to determine any potential hazards. Consult a physician before receiving or applying these treatments.

We recommend performing the Color Lock & Smooth Treatment on ages 12 and older with parental consent.

Yes. Although Keratherapy Color Lock & Smooth Treatment omits a small percentage of formaldehyde gas when heated, we are well below OSHA’s permitted guidelines.

We recommend waiting at least 24 hours to shampoo and then you can wear a ponytail and us hair clips.

Blow-dry the section of hair immediately and use a flat iron lightly to re-straighten.

The hair must be kept dry during the entire 24-hour waiting period. Salt water and pool water will affect the longevity of the treatment. Apply Keratin Infused Leave-In Conditioner before swimming in the pool or ocean. Rinse hair immediately after swimming and apply more Leave-In conditioner if needed.

We recommend cutting the hair after the Color Lock & Smooth Treatment as the hair will be completely smooth and straight and any split ends can be trimmed more accurately.

Do not apply any styling products to your hair for the first 24 hours but you can use these two products, a small amount of the Keratherapy Keratin Infused Argan Oil to tame flyways if needed or the Keratin Infused Dry Shampoo.
