Smoothing & Keratin Treatments
Hong Kong’s relentless humidity plays havoc with our hair.
Sleek, smooth-looking locks look ultra-polished, not to mention healthy. At Glow, our technicians specialise in finding the best smoothing or hair straightening treatments to suit your hair type and lifestyle. If you are time-poor but lust after smooth, luscious-looking locks that are low on maintenance but high on manageability, we have the solution for streamlining your beauty routine as well as your look.
Frizz is caused by your hair’s cuticle opening in response to the humidity in the air. When the cuticle is open the hair does not lie flat, producing the frizzing effect. Dry or under-conditioned hair is even more susceptible to frizz. At Glow, we have a range of the worlds most reputable treatments and our technicians specialise in finding the best smoothing or hair straightening treatments to suit your hair type and lifestyle.
bhave smooth PLUS & smoothe XT
Oh bhave! Why be frizzy when you can be fabulous?!
bhave Smoothe Plus treatment is paraben and formaldehyde-free, using raw, rather than heat treated keratin. The keratin is a bioactive keratin protein, gently extracted from New Zealand sheep’s wool, keeping the critical amino acids and proteins as intact as possible. The keratin penetrates the hair shaft and is able to bind to severely damaged hair, supporting the internal structure and restoring strength, elasticity and shine to damaged hair. bhave Smoothe Plus is suitable for all hair types, however, it is most effective on chemically damaged, dry and porous hair as the improvement in the condition is significant in these cases.
The new bhave™ Smoothe XT has got you covered! Do you spend half your morning in front of the mirror with a straightening iron, and by the time you get to the minibus/MTR or your car park all that time and effort is ruined! It’s time to tame that frizz & keep your hair smooth & manageable with the new NEW and IMPROVED formaldehyde-free bhave™ Smoothe XT keratin hair treatment – it is arguably the best smoothing treatment to combat frizzy hair in the Hong Kong heat!
So if you’re on a quest for picture-perfect, sleek locks with no flyaway curls or frizzy strands in sight, as well as a damage-free treatment with long-term conditioning, protection and a lustrous shine, this is exactly what you need. Created with bhave’s strongest keratin formula developed so far, the bhave™ Smoothe XT treatment is designed to completely smooth the hair with no compromise so you can wave goodbye to any sign of frizz or misbehaving hair!
The new Kerasilk with Keratransform Technology™ (KT³™) fuses the power of three superior ingredients to deliver powerful transformations.
The first two ingredients — engineered Keratin and lightweight silk — contribute to structural support and long-lasting colour protection. Together, these form the foundation for all Kerasilk formulas. The third advanced ingredient, inspired by the skin care scene, delivers specialised results specific to each of the Kerasilk four segments. Together, the combination of ingredients propels Kerasilk to the forefront of the industry, delivering the perfect transformation of beauty, strength, and protection.
Goldwell Kerasilk offers customisable salon services that provide exceptional and long-lasting results, the treatment offers four different options according to how much curl, wave or body you would like to leave in your hair. Goldwell Kerasilk is paraben and formaldehyde-free.
Kerasilk is suitable for all hair types, the treatment will take 2.5 to 3 hours in the salon and is completed in the salon. It is recommended that you do not tie your hair back for 48 hours, however, you can wash again that same day or the next if you choose.
From Frustrated to Fabulous
The Original Brazilian Blowout
A popular alternative to permanent straightening is the range of keratin smoothing treatments by Brazilian Blowout.
Through the use of breakthrough bonding technologies, these customisable smoothing treatments actually improve the condition of the hair by creating a protective protein layer around the hair shaft to eliminate frizz and smooth the cuticle.
Brazilian Blowout smoothing treatments are customisable so you can keep and define your curls OR go for a sleek and smooth look. Suitable for all hair types, and can be complete in the salon, you can wash your hair the same day, tie it back to exercise, and use styling products. Typically, Brazilian last for 12 weeks, at Glow, we highly recommend that you use the Brazilian Blowout Açai home-care shampoo and conditioners ensure longest lasting results. Brazilian Blowout is great for clients transitioning from Japanese straighteners and relaxers
The end result is smooth, frizz-free hair with radiant shine
It has been our experience, that good candidates for the Brazilian Blowout are anyone who has frizzy, damaged or processed hair.
At Glow, we have performed the treatment on many hair types (fine/course/frizzy/curly) and our stylist are happy to advise if Brazilian Blowout is suitable for you. When you treat the hair with Brazilian Blowout, the hair will be frizz-free, shiny, effortlessly manageable and with plenty of body and bounce.
The Brazilian Blowout will improve the visible condition of colour-treated/highlighted hair by conditioning the hair while sealing the cuticle ensuring enhanced colour, reduced frizz and radiant shine.
If your hair is wavy, the Brazilian Blowout will make your hair appear smooth and healthy. If your hair is very curly, it will minimise frizz while enhancing the appearance of the natural wave/curl. If you have straight, frizzy hair, this treatment will eliminate frizz and promote radiant shine.
The Brazilian Blowout will last for up to 12 weeks if the Açai After-Care Maintenance shampoo and conditioners are used. The Brazilian Blowout is a cumulative treatment, in that the more you receive it, the healthier the hair will appear and the longer the result will last. The Brazilian Blowout works best on chemically treated hair and helps to improve the condition of the hair by fortifying each strand with essential amino acids.
The hair will not lose volume as a result of receiving the Brazilian Blowout, and you may colour your hair prior to having the Brazilian Blowout smoothing treatment. If you get a Brazilian Blowout and wish to get a colour service at a later date, we usually recommend that you wait 1-2 weeks between treatments.
