But we get it – going to a salon and paying hundreds of dollars might not be your first choice. To save yourself the expense, here’s everything you need to know to DIY.

The Steps

  1. With the Keratin Treatment System you purchase, wash your hair twice with the clarifying shampoo. This gets all of the oil, dirt and product out of your strands so that the keratin can be properly absorbed into the hair shaft. When you’re done, skip the conditioner, as this coats the hair. Simply rinse the shampoo and let your hair air dry a bit.
  2. It’s time to blow-dry! Blow dry your hair as straight as possible. If you have extremely curly, coily or kinky hair, be sure to detangle thoroughly before you blow-dry to avoid snags and breakage. For a smooth finish, angle the dryer downward so that the hot air blows down the hair shaft, not upwards against your cuticles.
  3. Detangle your hair again to make sure that there are no clumps or kinks left behind. If you do find clumpy sections, detangle them and head back in with your dryer.
  4. Part your hair into sections of four, six or eight – whatever works for you and is super manageable!
  5. Apply the keratin solution onto the sections, being sure to saturate every section fully. Comb through to ensure even distribution.
  6. After about 20 minutes, blow-dry your hair dry. Be sure to do this in a well-aired out room!
  7. Flat iron your hair as straight as you can. This seals the keratin into your hair.
  8. After three days without washing, styling or tying up your hair in any way, wash your hair with a gentle keratin shampoo and conditioner.

Now, you’re free to flat iron your hair again to keep it looking sleek, straight and manageable. Continue to use a salt-free shampoo and conditioner duo to keep the keratin from washing out too soon.


It’s that easy, and it won’t cost you such a pretty penny! Once you follow instructions, take your time and use high quality keratin straightening products, you can achieve salon-rate results right from the comfort of your own home.
