Frequently Asked Questions
1 - What is Keratin and what is Keratin treatment?
Keratin is the protein in the hair. Every day due to daily activity , you hair loose a bit of the keratin.
So your hair end up with small holes is it and your hair becomes weak and lifeless.
With keratin treatment, we refile these holes by injecting keratin back to your hair.
2-What L’Abrea Keratin Treatment?
L'Abrea uses an advanced method for relaxing and straightening the hair. It is 100% Australian made and is vegan certified with 95% natural ingredients. It is completely different from traditional keratin treatments, that were formerly based on formaldehyde and ammonia chemicals, and required a three-day waiting period before washing the hair. L'Abrea's new technology allows you to wash the hair in less than one hour, after completing the treatment. Also there is no bad smell ,or eye and skin irritation. The service is so pleasant that leave most of client asleep. Client will not leave the salon with heavy, greasy looking hair.
3 - How often do I need to repeat L’Abrea Keratin Treatment?
L’Abrea Keratin Treatment lasts between 3-5 months, depending on the texture of the hair. If the hair is very frizzy or curly hair it is recommended to repeat the treatment after 90 days, to achieve a better result. For longer lasting straightening results, we strongly recommend using L’Abrea Aftercare Shampoo and Conditioner - SLES free, to prolong results.
4 - Can I colour, bleach or lighten hair on the same day that I apply L’Abrea Keratin Treatment?
Clients can colour their hair after the first wash, means 24 hours after their keratin treatment.
For any kind of bleach, we recommend to wait for 1 week.
Also colour and bleach at the same day with keratin treatment is possible. Although we recommend to not do that unless the options are limited.
For colouring and keratin treatment at the same day, first do the colour, but do that 1 shade darker and more cooler colour than the desired colour ( because keratin leaves a coloured hair lighter and warmer than what it was!) and then wash the tint with L'Abrea keratin shampoo and continue the process.
For bleach also first bleach the hair( using Plex is highly recommended) then do the keratin and then apply toner ( if possible after24 hours, if not follow the instruction on training videos). Please keep in mind to doing these processes together you have to be a very confidant hairdresser and understand how to monitor hair to avoid causing any damages.
4 - What are the benefits of using L'Abrea Keratin Treatment?
L’Abrea gives long-lasting smoothing effects, which significantly reduces the time taken to style the hair using hair dryers or straightening irons. This definitely suits today’s modern and busy lifestyles.
Hair naturally looses its keratin protein from daily activities such as washing and styling. L’Abrea Keratin Treatment replenishes the hair with keratin, giving softer, shinier and healthier hair.
Beside its frizz control! so after every wash and styling your hair, will not go frizzy due to humidity.
5 - Why should I choose L’Abrea Keratin Treatment over other keratin products available on the market?
Almost all keratin treatment products contain formaldehyde and those that say they are formaldehyde-free usually contain other chemicals that release formaldehyde during the treatment. Always check! Formaldehyde is extremely toxic to all those exposed in the same room during the treatment. Research has shown that formaldehyde is linked with causing cancer as well as causing skin, scalp, nasal and eye irritations. Hairdressers are the most vulnerable, due to repeated exposure.

L’Abrea stands apart from other brands in the market because laboratory analysis has confirmed that the L’Abrea Keratin Treatment is completely formaldehyde-free. By choosing L’Abrea you are NOT putting your health at risk and you are achieving a better result in terms of straightening and hair health.
6 - How many treatments can we get from one bottle (1 litre) of L’Abrea Keratin Treatment?
There are 20 - 25 treatments in a 1-litre bottle, depending on the length of the hair.
We also offer 125 ml bottle treatment that can give 2-3 treatments.
7 - How effective will the results be for very curly hair, using L’Abrea Keratin Treatment?
L’Abrea reduces the density of the curl and the frizziness. The outcome is dependant on the texture of the hair. For more effective results you can repeat the treatment. Alternatively you can do the service normally and ask your client to go back to you any time after 24 hours and without washing her hair, then you can iron 2-5 times every section again. She can wash her hair immediately after ( or you can shampoo her hair and apply repair mask on her hair in your salon) This will increase the result of straightening around 20% more.
8 - What kind of flat iron should be used for straightening?
A straightening iron that can be heated up to 230°C is recommended. Try L'Abrea's customised hot irons for the best result.
Most of Irons in the market can not hold their temperature stable, and they variance up to 30 degrees! This means by the time you are et the tip of the hair, your iron is only 150°C and also it takes them awhile to recover their temperature back to the right heat.
L'Abrea Iron has capacity to hold the its temperature stable with1 degree variance! and as soon as that happens , it automatically bounces the temperature back to the right degree.
9 - Should I recommend any special products to maintain the hair after applying L’Abrea Keratin Treatment?
To achieve a longer lasting result from the treatment, we highly recommend that you use the L’Abrea Aftercare Shampoo and Conditioner - both are SLES free. Most regular shampoos and conditioners contain salt, which opens the hair cuticles, leading to loss of keratin.
10 - If hair has been chemically treated (coloured, straightened etc), can I use L’Abrea Keratin Treatment without damaging or breaking the hair?
Yes! L’Abrea Keratin Treatment actually rebuilds the keratin that is lost in hair during chemical treatments. Using L’Abrea will result in stronger and healthier hair.
