We use 3 different types of hair straightening.
Our newest and favorite is the Keratin Treatment. The brands that we use are called Global Keratin Treatment, Color Lock, and Keratin Express. Prices range from $35 to $250. Service times are 20 minutes to 2 hours. Length and thickness are determining factors. Level of damage to expect is 0%, as it actually protects the hair. Your hair will feel smoother and healthier and your styling time will be reduced by 60%. The effect of the Keratin Treatment is 4 to 5 months with no root regrowth to worry about.
Thermal Straightener is the process that alters the hair much like a permanent wave. Price ranges from $200 to $500 with the service time from 90min to 4hrs. Length and thickness are determining factors. Level of damage to expect is 20% to 30% and hair will be straighter and easier to style. Hair may tangle more and specific conditioners will be needed. Regrowth will need to be touched up every six to eight weeks.
In extreme situations both systems can be used together. If the hair is very curly and the desired result is very straight, we will apply the thermal straightener and fully process it. After 48hrs we can then apply the Keratin Smoothing system. This will create dramatically straighter and smoother hair. Price will be between $400 and $800 with two appointments at least 48 hours apart. Results should last 4 to 5 months on treated hair. Regrowth will have to be touched up depending on regrowth.
After receiving 3 to 4 treatments you may start getting uneven results. This can also happen if then Keratin treatment was done incorrectly. The results can feel uneven or leave you hair “gummy feeling”. Total Changes can perform a Keratin Removal Service ranging from $35 to $50 with a service time from 30 to 60 min. After the Keratin Removal Service we can then reapply the Keratin Treatment and you can expect the original performance.
