How to find a good hair salon ?

Everyone wants the best colour, cut, style, blowout etc possible but how do you go about finding a competent hairdresser..

The answer is word of mouth. If not in person ask the question on facebook.

Google reviews can easily be faked now so I try figure out if the review/s for that business are legitimate. Google reviews are flawed, anyone can open up multiple Gmail accounts and pump up their reviews.

Referrals/ word of mouth is the most reliable.  I do not trust the work I see on Instagram as every pic is filtered and photo shopped.

How long should your keratin hair treatment last?

A Brazilian Blowout keratin treatment should last minimum 3 months as long as you maintain it correctly. Using the wrong products and swimming in the ocean without a serum will reduce the lifespan on your treatment.

Some are lucky they can get 6 months out of a treatment, it is possible but not realistic for everybody.


My favourite Keratin treatment

When we opened up in 2008 the first keratin treatment we used was the Global keratin.

That was one of the first ones to come out and it gave clients great results. They eventually changed the ingredients and now it's weak and does not really work.

That's when we switched to Brazilian Blowout, which is the worlds most popular treatment.

It takes about 60-80 mins to do a Brazilian Blowout. Keratin treatments take about 2-3 hours. Issues we experienced with keratin is that the hair would get oily. You will not have this issue with the brazilian blowout.

What is the best keratin treatment ?

The answer is unfortunately none.

It is just about impossible to know which salon is using genuine products or knocks offs. As of 2018 the keratin companies keep changing names cause their brand have a reputations for not working.

A number of salons in Sydney have resorted to buying google reviews and followers for their social media from IT companies in India to make them look relevant. If a supplier offered me a keratin bottle today I would knock it back, I would never risk using it on my clients hair.

Keratin treaments can change hair colour dramatically as it contains ingredients that fades the hair colour.

The brazilian blowout does not fade hair colour. It enhances it

 Do not be blinded by cheap deals, If they are doing it cheap it's cause the product they use is cheap. It is your hair. Your choice.
