Interested in keratin hair treatments for your hair in Rhode Island?
Shimmer Salon & Day Spa in East Greenwich RI are the experts in keratin hair treatments (as well as foil-highlights).
I’ve been hearing a lot about a process that treats your hair with Keratin to smooth the cuticles and create beautiful straight strands for months! I have to say, I’m certainly considering having a treatment done but I wanted to find out a little more about it...
Can you tell me what it is?
Keratin is a type of protein high in Sulfur and the amino acid cystine, making it tough, elastic and insoluble. These qualities are fundamental to the strong structural role keratin often plays in nature. It is a major component of horns, hooves and wool. In fact, keratin is the main protective substance in our hair, skin and nails. Keratin is difficult to extract without damaging the cystine, or sacrificing potency.
How does it work?
When it comes to keratin, tough is good. Its strong protective qualities improve the hair both inside and out. Our unique biopolymer ingredient is virtually a “liquid form of hair” that gently blends with the hair on your head. It brings to hair what it was lacking to begin with and what it has lost over the years.
Is the hair dull, dry and damaged? Is it curly, wavy, frizzy, overly voluminous or unmanageable? Application of our keratin treatment puts an end to all that.
The smaller keratin molecules penetrate the hair cortex improving and repairing the quality of the hair from the inside. The added strength, elasticity and moisture results in the smooth, soft, shiny and straightened affect.
The larger molecules coat the hair cuticle and take the environmental insults such as UV rays, smog, and smoke for your hair on the outside. Further damage to the hair shaft is prevented.
How long can I expect my salon visit to take when receiving the treatment on shoulder length hair? About 2hr.
How does an in-salon treatment compare to a DIY like Liquid Karatin 30 Day Starter Kit?
Well, like any home DIY product, it is very hard to do a thorough job yourself. You can expect the home process to take about 2 hr. Like any do it yourself home color, it’s just never as good. A salon treatment will last 3-4 month the DIY will only last 1 month.
What can I expect to pay to get my shoulder length hair treated?
How would this treatment benefit a busy mom?
It will cut your blow dry time in half. Most mom’s do not need to blow dry their hair at all after the treatment.
So, with this treatment, can a woman let her hair dry naturally and expect straight hair during the 3-4 months post treatment?
You can let your hair dry on its own and it will be smooth and frizz free. If you like your hair to be pin straight you might have to blow dry,It depends on how curly your hair is and how straight you want it.
Can it be applied to color treated hair?
Yes it works best on chemical treated hair.
Does the treatment grow out like a perm does so the ends remain straight as the curl grows in with new growth? Or, does the hair gradually return to it’s normal state over time?
The treatment will gradually and evenly wear off the hair in about 3 to 4 months.

What are gel and Shellac manicures?
To put it simply, in a gel manicure, a coat of colored "gel" (that looks like nail polish) is applied to the nails. After each coat, you put your hands under a
UV light to cure (dry) the gel. A number of brands including OPI and Bio Sculpture Gel produce gel polishes. "Shellac," a technology invented by Creative Nail Design, is similar to a gel manicure in that it also uses UV
light to cure each coat.
How are they applied?
Both the gel and Shellac manicures start out like a normal manicure; nails are shaped with a file, and cuticles are pushed
back (since I know you don't cut them!). The next step is to apply a base coat, followed by two coats of either gel or shellac,
and then finished with a top coat. Where the process differs from a regular manicure, is that in between each coat of polish,
you dry your hands under a UV light for about 30 seconds to a minute. Here's the real kicker: after the last blast of UV light
YOUR NAILS ARE DRY! No waiting under a fan and no chance of smudging - it's a dream come true.
How long does it last?
In general, both the gel and shellac manicures claim to last up to two weeks - and they do! After two weeks they may begin to peel, but the real issue, is that your own nails grow out, leaving an unpolished band near the cuticle. Thus, the "two weeks" sell. With regular polish, after a few days, the top coat begins to dull - with gel and Shellac, they look as shiny on day 14 as they did on day 1.
