No matter how you wear your hair, one goal we all seem to work towards is beating frizz. In this Georgia heat and humidity, that’s a request we hear year-round and our answer to that, is a Keratin Treatment. There’s a lot of mystery surrounding Keratin Treatments, so we at Princeton Salon and Spa have broken it down for you.


Keratin is a protein that makes up your hair, nails and outer layer of skin. Over time, as we expose our hair to things like heat styling and color, the keratin breaks down and can cause a lackluster, dull look. A Keratin Treatment is a chemical process that helps put this protein back into your hair while smoothing and adding shine. One common misconception about this type of treatment is that it straightens your hair, but really it’s more geared toward smoothing and taming frizz. For those who do want straighter hair, our new Maximum Keratin Treatment offers that.


While results vary depending on the type of hair the process is being done on, the general outcome is smoother, shinier, more manageable hair. Please note that immediately following a Keratin Treatment service, you want to steer clear of putting your hair in a bun, ponytail or clip to avoid denting, except with our Maximum Keratin Treatment.
