What is Hair Texturing?
First, understand what is hair texture? Hair texturing (or hair texturizing) is cutting the hair to add movement, bounce, and volume. Textured cuts are ideal for guests interested in giving their flat or straight-cut hair some character and interest. However, there are plenty of opportunities for all guests, with different lengths, styles, and textures, to elevate their texture with the perfect cut.
The textured haircut with heat styling is one of our hair salon services that creates an elevated hair experience dedicated to shaping your one-of-a-kind look. The experience begins with a personalized consultation and ends with smooth hair styling that locks in the new shape of your hair. The possibilities for adding texture at one of our salons are endless. The opportunities range from adding movement to a structured pixie-cut to adding an effortless bounce to longer hair with long feathered layers.
Is Texturing Good for Hair?
In addition to making the hair look better, textured haircuts can improve the health of hair - especially hair that is always heat-styled. Adding texture can help you maintain an effortless and voluminous look that does not look flat after a few days. This can reduce the need to reach for heat tools. Additionally, we offer a full menu of other beneficial texture services. Other texture services include textured shampoos, blowouts, and heat-styling, and custom roller set applications.
Many guests can also benefit from a hair smoothing treatment. Hair smoothing treatments transform the texture of the hair differently than a textured haircut. A textured haircut uses scissors to shape a new texture, while a smoothing treatment transforms the natural texture of the hair to make it more manageable. A menu of Keratin smoothing treatments that improve the manageability of the hair is available with a select stylist - plus a relaxer and silk press option.
Is Smoothening Good for Damaged Hair?
Smoothening is beneficial for guests who have damaged hair due to the overuse of heat-styling tools. Guests who have a difficult time styling a look free of unwanted frizz or curl can also benefit from a smoothing treatment. Because smoothing improves manageability, it reduces the need for heat-styling, which is beneficial when repairing damaged hair. Smoothing is also a less damaging alternative to chemical hair straightening because chemical straightening treatments use chemicals that are stronger than a smoothing treatment.
What are the Benefits of Keratin Hair Smoothing Treatments?
Select Tricoci stylists are trained to smooth the hair with three unique Keratin processes: the classic Keratin Treatment, the Keratin Smoothing Treatment Max, and the Keratin Smoothing Treatment Express. Each treatment offers its own unique set of benefits.
The first of the three Keratin treatments that we offer is the classic Keratin Smoothing Treatment. This option locks in smoother and softer locks by eliminating up to 80% of frizz and 70% of curl. Alternatively, guests interested in achieving the straightest results would benefit from the Keratin Smoothing Treatment Max. This is the strongest smoothing option available. Finally, the Keratin Smoothing Treatment Express reduces unwanted frizz and curl with the utmost efficiency. This treatment is ideal for a time-crunched guest in need of a quick cure.
How Long do Keratin Smoothing Treatments Last?
Each of our three Keratin smoothing treatments delivers results that last within a certain window of time. Understanding which treatments produce the longest-lasting results can help you determine personal maintenance levels, including how often you may need to revisit the salon. The classic Keratin Smoothing Treatment and Keratin Smoothing Treatment Max each last up to three months. The Keratin Smoothing Treatment Express lasts up to six weeks.
