With Summer on its way out and Fall fast approaching there is always an added buzz in our Albany Hair Salon. It’s no secret that the Sun has damaging affects on the integrity of your hair texture and color. The common theme in the salon following the summer months is always trying to get our clients hair back in to great shape after the wear and tear of summer fun! Complexions now offers Keratin Complex Smoothing Therapy. Thermal Reconditioning is fast becoming yesterdays news. The Keratin Complex by Coppola is a treatment that infuses keratin into the hair and then gets sealed in. The hair will remain pliable and not stiff to the touch. It will take away all the frizz and about 80% of the curl. This gives you the option of curly or straight. (With the Japanese Relaxer you’re stuck with straight) If you choose to Blow-Dry it will also reduce drying time about 60%. The treatment should last about 5 months and dissipates as time goes by. The product is also cumulative and after the second treatment should last even longer. The results from this are amazing! I have to say, as a stylist for seven years, I was skeptical of this product when it was first introduced to me. I have always felt that relaxing the hair always takes away some of the integrity of the hair. This product does just the opposite! It actually improves the texture and condition of the hair. I asked my longtime client Brittany to come and let me try it out on her. Brittany has thick curly hair that we highlight. She loves to where her hair smooth and straight and was always a slave to the blow dryer and the flatiron. The combination of highlighting and heat styling was drying her hair out like crazy! After we did the treatment her hair was straight, but still had life and body. Her frizz was virtually non-existent! Her hair felt hydrated and soft. We were both 100% satisfied, even blown-away, by the results! Before Hair Smoothing…

I highly recommend coming in for the service if you are looking for beautiful smooth, healthy hair. The service can take anywhere from 2-5 hours depending on the length and density of the hair. You can not wash, pull up or clip your hair for three days after the service. The Keratin needs time to harden in the hair. If you get your hair wet during that time period you simply just blow dry and flat iron. If you have colored your hair it s great to do this service to increase the longevity of the color. By sealing the Keratin into the cuticle, it works as an anti-fade complex. Call to set up a consultation appointment with either Kim or Jenna! This service will really change your life! Hope to see you soon! Kim Hannell, Senior Stylist & Colorist at Complexions Spa & Salon
