The summer season is a prime time to come in and allow our certified stylists to treat your hair with a Peter Coppola Keratin Smoothing Treatment.  This luxurious treatment reverses the appearance of damage and stimulates overall hair strength and vitality to provide a restorative boost and provides superior protection to the hair.  With the summer humidity at its peak, this treatment will drastically reduce frizz, unruliness, and help you maintain your desired style.  This treatment uses the highest quality ingredients, such as Keratin, vital ceramides and smoothing amino acids, combined with a low pH mechanism to soften and smooth coarse hair. Unlike other harsh smoothing treatments, the Peter Coppola treatment is free of formaldehyde and aldehydes and is safe for all hair types.

Clients with slightly wavy hair and frizz can expect to experience smooth and frizz free hair after blow drying.  Those clients who have severely coarse and curly hair will typically experience a much smoother appearance to their hair with greater ease of manageability.

We offer a full keratin treatment, which typically takes 2.5-3 hours to complete.  With proper care, this treatment

should last on average 3 months. The average cost of this treatment is $315.

What you should expect:

You will receive two clarifying shampoo treatments to remove any oils from the hair shaft.  The hair is then dried 100%.  The keratin treatment is then applied to the hair in small sections using a color brush.  A plastic cap is then applied over the hair to retain the body heat and activate the product.  This is left to process for 20 minutes.  Your stylist will then remove any excess product from your hair using a small tooth comb.  The hair is then dried 100% with either a flat or round brush, depending on the desired outcome.  The final step is to separate the hair into small sections and using the flat iron to smooth each section.  Each small section is smoothed over 7-10 times.

The aftercare to this process is extremely imperative for the longevity of your treatment.  You cannot shampoo or wet your hair for 72 hours after the treatment.  If your hair happens to get wet, dry it as soon as possible and flat iron that section.  You also may not put your hair up in any way for the 72 hours following the treatment.  We strongly advise the purchase of the Peter Coppola shampoo and conditioner.  Using these products along with your treatment will ensure your investment lasts the maximum amount of time as possible.  If you decide not to purchase these products, we cannot guarantee the longevity of your treatment, as they are meant to work in conjunction to one another.

It is important to note that along with using improper products on treated hair, chlorine, salt water, and other harsh chemicals will also shorten the lifespan of your treatment.

At Melinda’s Med-Spa and Salon we also offer an express version of this treatment.  The Keratin Express treatment by Peter Coppola.  The results from this treatment are very similar to the full Keratin Treatment.  The major differences are that this treatment is expected to last approximately 6 weeks with proper care, takes half the time to administer, and cost about half.

This version of the Keratin Treatment is recommended to clients that want an idea of how their hair will react to a smoothing treatment.  This is also a great option if you are traveling for an extended period of time and do not want to commit as much time to hairstyling.  You will not get quite as much smoothness with this treatment, so it is more desirable for clients who do not have severely coarse and curly hair.  This Express Treatment is also ideal for those clients who cannot forego shampooing their hair for 72 hours.  The Express Keratin Treatment only requires 8 hours between the treatment and the first shampoo.  The previously mentioned shampoo and conditioner are still suggested to prolong your results.  This treatment starts at $160 and takes approximately 1.5 hours to complete.  You still should not pull up your hair or get it wet for the first 8 hours.
