Everything about Keratin Hair Treatment at Affinity Salon, New Delhi!

Hello Team Cravers!

I am writing this post after a week of getting a Keratin Hair treatment done from Affinity Salon, New Delhi. Before I tell you guys my experience and everything else about the treatment, let me give you all some details about my natural hair!

So this is how it looks like 

 

As you can see my hair is thick, frizzy and lacks shine due to continuous use of hair straighteners and other products. Also, I have permanently straightened my hair twice.  

During the last month I was losing excessive amounts of hair due to damage and less blood circulation ( because I did not comb my hair very often as it would get more frizzy), a friend and I decided to try out Keratin treatment.

After watching a million videos on YouTube and reading about it we understood the following:

1. This treatment will not help you get poker straight hair, instead you will get a blow dried look.

2. A good salon had to be chosen that uses formaldehyde free products or uses products which contain permitted amounts of formaldehyde. 

3. The effects wouldn't last as long as permanent smoothening.

We settled on Affinity Salon as they use formaldehyde free products for the Keratin treatment and personally I have never had a bad experience there.

The process involves a shampoo followed by application of the Keratin cream. Once the the cream is applied, the hair is blow dried and straightened as the treatment gets activated with heat.  The entire process took us about 3-3.5  hours. There is no shampooo after the Keratin treatment is applied. 

We were asked to come back the next day for the first wash. Before washing the hair, they straightened our hair twice. It was done twice for me due to my hair thickness. The picture below is after my hair was washed. Please note that my hair was not straightened or blow dried before this picture.

 

Also we were specifically told to use Sebastian Penetraitt shampoo and conditioner so that the effect lasts longer. Generally the effect lasts about 4-5 months.

My experience: my hair has become 10000000 times more manageable and hair loss has reduced considerably. Although my hair is not as straight as is in the picture above, but it looks more bouncy and naturally straight. I don't have to use a straightener for atleast the next 3 months.   What I love about this treatment is that unlike the straightening and smoothening, my hair won't be half straight and half frizzy when my hair starts growing. This effect lasts 4-5 months in the entire hair and slowly it washes away and the hair gets back to the normal texture. In short, I'm loving it.

I will soon write about the shampoo and conditioner. 

Affinity charged us INR 7500 for the Keratin treatment and first wash. The shampoo and the conditioner will cost around INR 3300.

Let us know if you guys have any questions, we'll be happy to answer.
