6 Ways to Use Keratin Products at Home

Silky hair right from your own home.

We’re big believers in the power of keratin. Seriously, if you’ve ever struggled to get your hair under control, you need some keratin products in your life. You don’t even need to go out and do the whole keratin process at a salon, which can be quite the chunk of change.

Using keratin products at home is a better option for those who want to keep costs down and options open. Read on to see six ways you can work keratin products into your routine:

The Keratin Products You Need to Get the Look At Home, and Why You Should Get On Them

You don’t need to lose your waves when you use keratin products.

1. They can make your hair more manageable.

If you love your curly or wavy texture but are sick of dealing with frizz, try a keratin shampoo. We love how Suave Professionals Keratin Infusion Smoothing Shampoo and Suave Professionals Keratin Infusion Conditioner works as a team to cleanse your hair with lower sulfates. They also help prevent frizz and make your hair easier to work with. A dream team, basically.

2. They can smoothens your hair.

To get seriously silky smooth hair, look no further than hair serums. To get that added cuticle-smoothing benefit of keratin products, try TRESemmé Keratin Infusing Smoothing Serum. Not only is this serum going to give you really shiny hair, it can help protect strands from frizz, humidity and dryness. And it does it all without weighing down your hair! Just apply one to two pumps to your hair before blowdrying and you’re good to go.

3. One full week of smooth hair isn’t a myth.

If you love the idea of a keratin treatment but aren’t too sure on having straight hair for three months on end, we’ve got another option for you: the TRESemmé 7 Day Keratin Smooth line. This is a three-product system that gives you shiny, smooth hair in just three steps. Just start off with TRESemmé 7 Day Keratin Smooth Shampoo and TRESemmé 7 Day Keratin Smooth Conditioner. Then, while your hair is still wet, apply TRESemmé Keratin Smooth 7 Day Heat Activated Treatment. Give yourself a nice blow-dry, then activate the treatment by flat-ironing your hair.

4. It refreshes your hair.

If you are a hair color fanatic, we’re sure you know that shampooing your hair doesn’t do wonders for keeping that color vibrant. If you’re dedicated to keeping your hair color looking fresh, you’ll have to skip a wash every now and then. To get you through those oily days with refreshed roots, use a dry shampoo, such as Suave Professionals Keratin Infusion Color Care Dry Shampoo.

5. It hydrates and protects from heat!

Okay, so we’re still a little bit jazzed about keratin products that you can leave in your hair. They make such a big difference! Like Suave Professionals Keratin Infusion Heat Defense Leave-In Conditioner: It’s a leave-in conditioner that helps hydrate and nourish hair, but it’s also a heat protectant. Can you say brilliant?

6. It sets your style.

If you are a die-hard smooth hair lover, you kind of need a keratin hairspray such as TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Hairspray. It helps keep your hair nice and smooth, but also locks your style in place all day. We even like to use this on hair-down days to keep frizz and humidity at bay. It will be love at first spritz, we promise!
