What is keratin treatment?

A keratin treatment is a chemical process that smooths and shines frizzy hair. Results can last up to six months. This treatment was created to offer a safe alternative to formaldehyde-laden Brazilian Keratin

I colored my hair. Can I still get a keratin treatment?

Yes! Unlike chemical-straightening relaxers, you can safely have dyed hair and a keratin treatment without the risk of damage. Mayraki Hydrolyzed Keratin treatment has done lab test which is safe on any hair type and helps to improve shine as well as moisture levels.
