Mels Hair Salon

Permanent Straightener or Keratin treatments

Permanent hair straightener or keratin treatments? That’s one of the most popular questions from customers at Mels Hair Salon. Mels Hair Salon is situated in Durban, were high humidity are expected throughout the year. The climate in Durban makes hair unmanageable for many people with frizzy hair or curly hair.

It is important to know that these two services are completely different and they both have completely different outcomes. Permanent hair Straightener will straighten out curls from hair permanently. Keratin Treatments remove only frizz. Keratin treatments main function is to smoothen out the frizz and not curls (what is frizz). One can straighten out curls with a chemical straightener but may still require a keratin treatment to smoothen out the frizz from the hair.

There are some companies who have tried to combine these two products together however, while this may sound like a good idea, these companies have not been able to prove longevity without damage to the hair.

Mel chooses their products based on its quality and the support provided from those brands. This helps provide Mels salons with the best training and education possible.
