Keratin Complex FAQ

Q: What is Keratin Complex Natural Keratin Smoothing Treatment?
A: It is a specially formulated revitalizing and rejuvenating treatment for the hair that reduces frizz and curl. The advanced patent-pending formulation restores and restructures hair by infusing a special blend of natural keratin deep into the cuticle. The keratin is bonded into the cuticle by the heat of the flat iron to relax the hair’s sub-cuticle layer.
