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 life style. 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 life style.

bhave Smoothe Plus

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 condition is significant in these cases.

The bhave Smoothe Plus salon treatment will take 2.5 to 3 hours. For the first 48 hours after your treatment, you must ensure that  you do not wet/wash or tie back your hair, as the keratin needs time to settle into the hair. After 48 hours the hair should be washed, blow dried and ideally ironed again for best results, this can be done in the salon or in your own home.

The bhave Smoothe Plus treatment is enriched with keratin, argan oil, collagen and silk amino acids, if you have curls they will be softened or loosened and if you have wavy hair it will be smoothed.  bhave Smoothe plus is a heat activated therapy and does not permanently change the internal structure of the hair. It washes out slowly over time and conquers the frizz by smoothing out the hair cuticle making hair more manageable and quicker to dry.

While there are no known adverse side effects, at Glow, we recommend that pregnant women and nursing mums consult their physician if they are at all concerned, prior to this and any type of hair treatment.

At Glow we usually recommend that any lightening services (eg a full or half head of highlights) be applied BEFORE your keratin smoothing service and tinting, toning or semi-permanent colouring is recommended AFTER your keratin smoothing service. bhave treatments are NOT straightening treatments and, unlike other straightening services, does not restructure the hair. As a result, hair looks more natural with enhanced body, movement and manageability.

The aftercare is simple, bhave Smoothe Plue will have a smoothing effect when you ‘wash and go’, however for the best results you should apply heat after each wash. This can be as simple as a quick blow dry and a smoothing with flat irons at home. The treatment will last up to 4 months, at Glow we highly recommended that the bhave rescue home care shampoo and conditioner are used to extend the longevity of this treatment.

Goldwell Kerasilk

From Frustrated to Fabulous
 

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 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.

 

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 same day, tie it back to exercise, and use styling products. Typically, Brazilian last for 12 weeks, at Glow, we highly recommending 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


Experience

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 Result


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 wait 1-2 weeks between treatments.
