If you’re going to get a Keratin treatment, go with Coppola Keratin Complex. I have had multiple types of keratin treatments over the last eight years and this treatment has been the best of all. I had mine done at St. Louis’s brand new Christina White Salon, located in Brentwood. Owner Chrissy White swears by this treatment. As long as you use the right products to sustain the keratin treatment (sulfate free), your hair will stay smooth until it grows out. Other treatments may fade away, but not this one. Yes, this is the longest lasting Keratin treatment I’ve ever had. I know because this is the second time I’ve gotten it.
How the Keratin Treatment Is Applied
- Chrissy starts by using a clarifying shampoo and dries your hair.
- She then generously applies the Coppola Keratin Complex product to smooth hair cuticles. This eliminates that dreaded frizz, especially those pesky baby hairs around the forehead and neckline.
- Once the product has been applied and combed through the hair, it is left to set for 20 minutes.
- Hair is then blowdried and flat ironed with enough passes to seal the keratin complex treatment in.
The entire process may take two to three hours. You are left with silky, touchable hair that is completely frizz free. It’s like walking around with a curtain of silk attached to your head (not an exaggeration). If you plan to color your hair as well, make sure do get the Keratin treatment first. Then wait two weeks before coloring your hair.
Costs of a Keratin Treatment
Typically Keratin treatments at Christina White Salon range from about $250 – $450, depending on how much product is required. The curlier your hair, the more product you may have to use, which is why the cost may differ. While other Keratin treatments may cost less, it is important to question whether your treatment will last as long as this one. Typically the cheaper treatments promise you six weeks of frizz free hair, whereas this one is permanent until new hair starts to grow in. If you think about it, you are actually saving money in the long term.
While some of my friends have told me horror stories of their hair falling out from getting a Keratin treatment at other salons, I have never experienced negative side effects from Chrissy’s work. Having tried three other types of Keratin treatments, I can say with certainty that hers has lasted the longest.
About the Christina White Salon
I visited her brand new location last week and was pleasantly surprised by the glamorous decor. Gold, white and black tones are complemented by a wall of mirrors. Everywhere you look, there’s shimmer, especially on the all gold glitter floor. One of her clients is a designer and helped her make this gilded vision come to life.
The Christina White Salon is also known for offering gorgeous hair extensions and color treatments. I’ll be returning soon to tell you more about what to expect with her hair extensions. It will be my first experience trying semi-permanent hair extensions and I am super excited. Stay tuned!
