Review: Kerastraight KS Ultimate Treatment


Before & After KS Ultimate Treatment

Last month, I was invited to Salon International to try out the Kerastraight Ultimate treatment. Although I didn’t have the KS treatment applied in a typical salon environment, I was impressed with the results and wanted to share my experience.

You may remember last year I reviewed the Goldwell Kerasilk Keratin Treatment and I loved the results! My hair stayed frizz-free, smooth and manageable for just over 4 months. However, I found the after products irritated my scalp so after 2 weeks I stopped using these and used my normal sulphate-free products instead, which I found worked fine. My hair grew in length and looked and felt healthier after the treatment as I didn’t need to use as much heat on my hair.

KS Ultimate Treatment promises to transform frizzy, unmanageable hair and dramatically reduced your hair styling routine. This multi-award winning semi-permanent hair repair and smoothing system provides unrivalled condition, strength and shine to all hair types including dry, damaged, coloured, chemically treated and even Afro-Caribbean hair! I was excited to save precious minutes to my morning routine, bidding farewell to frizz and waking up to management, silky smooth and healthy looking hair.

The treatment involved having my hair washed with a pre-treatment shampoo, which was left on my hair for 5 minutes to open up my hair cuticles ready for the Keratin treatment to be applied. KS Ultimate Treatment was applied to my hair in small sections and wrapped in a plastic cap and left to work for 45 minutes. The treatment simply feels like a conditioning treatment has been applied and contains no harsh chemicals, so doesn’t burn or sting like some other Keratin or Brazilian Blowdry treatments. The treatment was rinsed for 30 seconds and a conditioner was applied but again just rinsed for 20 seconds and not fully washed out. My hair was then blow-dried and straightened to active and seal in the treatment.

After my hair was blow dried, it felt silky smooth and soft, the product is so light in texture that it was impossible to tell that the treatment had been dried into my hair. The whole process took around 3 hours, you are able to shampoo your hair after just 30 minutes and there’s no growing out period, the results naturally fade away. The real test was when I left the venue it began raining, normally my hair would become frizzy and curly yet it stayed straight and smooth! I found the treatment does take some washing out after the process. I would recommend rinsing well for and shampooing your hair twice to ensure the product has been completely removed. 

Since having the treatment I am pleased that my hair needs minimal styling and heat, I can even leave to dry naturally without my hair becoming frizzy and unmanageable. I'm excited that the results can last up to 4 months and it is recommended to use the after care products to maintain the treatment. If, like me, you suffer with frizzy unmanageable hair then I would definitely recommend this treatment especially since its safe and formaldehyde-free. 

KS Ultimate Treatment costs from £150. For more information and to find your nearest salon please visit: http://www.kerastraight.com Have you ever thought about trying a Keratin Hair Treatment?
