Keratin is a type of protein that makes up a protective barrier on the epidermis—our skin. It has the ability to repair damaged cells to make your hair smoother, silkier and resilient; it helps tame frizz and restore shine, and provides long-lasting protection.
As we age, protein levels decrease and hair loses its elasticity, especially when it has been colored or chemically treated. This is where our keratin treatments come to your aid.
Here are some of the benefits, and main differences between the two types of keratin treatments we offer.
Hair looks fuller and glossier.
Strengthens hair strands.
Eliminates frizz (ideal for humid weather and seasons).
Hair doesn’t break easily during styling.
Better resistance to contaminants.
Cuts back on blow-dry time and requires lower temperatures.
Repairs damaged hair cells.
Both our treatments are developed for professional use only and yield immediate results.

For your keratin treatment to last longer, keep your hair free of Sodium Chloride (common salt). Put this substance on your watch list.
Keep beach and pool trips to a minimum; avoid them entirely for at least one week after treatment. Use a conditioner before going for a swim.
If you wish to dye your hair we recommend you do it before the keratin treatment, or wait at least two weeks after treatment to color it.
Directions for using KERATIN SMOOTHING TREATMENT:
Wash hair twice with our DAMANCI Clarifying Shampoo. Towel dry and allow all moisture to disappear. Using a comb, section hair into 4 parts. Pour 2 to 3 oz. of treatment into a container and apply DAMANCI Keratin Smoothing Treatment with application brush onto 1⁄2 inch layers of hair, 1⁄2 inch away from scalp. Continue until entire head has been treated. Remove excess with comb. Allow the treatment to set for 20 minutes. Blow-dry thoroughly with the help of a comb until hair is 100% dry. Set iron at 450F degrees if hair is not damaged and 380F degrees if hair is moderately to severely damaged. Iron each lock of hair, run the iron through the same lock 8-10 times. Repeat the procedure until entire head is treated. Finish by applying our DAMANCI Argan Oil to restore shine and natural elasticity. Typically results last 4 – 6 months. Maintain your hair with DAMANCI Elixir Argan cream.
