1. Can Liquid Keratin be used on color treated or highlighted hair?
Liquid Keratin is safe to use on color treated hair. However, as with all hair treatments, we recommend performing a strand test in a discreet location prior to application, particularly if you have light colored hair or if your hair has been bleached and/or chemically altered. For best results, apply the Liquid Keratin treatment 1-2 weeks prior to your color treatment.
2. How often can I apply Liquid Keratin?
Liquid Keratin can be used as often as you like during regular styling and in between full treatments. We do recommend, however, performing a full treatment every 4 – 6 weeks or when you feel your hair can use it. The Liquid Keratin Aftercare products (shampoo, conditioner and leave in) are key in prolonging the process. They are specially formulated without Sodium Chloride. Sodium Chloride, which is in a lot of hair care products, will diminish the effects of the Liquid Keratin Treatment very quickly.
3. Can I only purchase the Treatment?
Currently, the Liquid Keratin treatment is only available in the starter kit. We will be making the treatment available on its own in the near future and will keep you posted.
4. Can Liquid Keratin be applied to previously relaxed hair?
Liquid Keratin is safe to use on previously relaxed hair. It will eliminate any frizz and will nourish the hair returning it to a healthy state.
5. How many uses can I get from one 4oz bottle of Liquid Keratin?
On average, you can get between 2-3 applications with the Liquid Keratin Treatment. The amount of applications really depends on the length and thickness of your hair.

Liquid Keratin Treatment can be used on African American hair. Liquid Keratin will loosen the curl and tame unwanted frizz for up to 30 days with only one application. Liquid Keratin will also help make hair softer and tangle free. Hair can either be worn curly with no frizz or hair straight with very little styling required.
9. How does Liquid Keratin work?
Liquid Keratin infuses curly, frizzy unmanageable hair with the keratin protein that it is naturally missing.
10. Does Liquid Keratin have a thermal protectant?
Yes, Liquid Keratin contains an ingredient that helps protect your hair from the heat of a flat iron.
11. How long can Liquid Keratin results last?
Liquid Keratins results can last up to 30 days. Liquid Keratin Aftercare products (shampoo, conditioner and leave in) are key in prolonging the process. They are specially formulated without Sodium Chloride. Sodium Chloride, which is in a lot of hair care products, will diminish the effects of the Liquid Keratin Treatment very quickly.
12. Do I have to use a flat iron?
For the initial application, you must use a flat iron at high heat (420-450 degrees) for best results and wear your hair straight for 48 hours. The high heat of the flat iron helps seal the keratin to your hair shaft. Liquid Keratin contains a thermal protectant ingredient that will protect your hair from the heat of the iron.
13. Will the Chlorine from a pool affect my results?
Liquid Keratin is washed out more rapidly by sodium chloride and chlorine. Sodium chloride (salt) is in sea water and chlorine is in most swimming pools and spas.
14. Will Liquid Keratin make my hair brassy?
The Liquid Keratin Treatment binds to specific amino acids found in hair keratin. People with higher levels of these types of amino acids in their hair keratin are at risk and have the potential to develop a change of color. Less than 1% of customers will experience this type of change in their hair color. As with any hair treatment, Liquid Keratin recommends performing a strand test in a discreet location prior to application, particularly if you have blond, light colored and/or chemically altered hair. Any change in color will happen immediately upon applying the iron.
