Keratin hair is where it’s at! We’re talking about all the benefits of this stellar treatment, with a little help from Rocky Bukasa, South African Mizani educator.

Scroll down to see our three favorite ways of wearing keratin hair, and the products you need to get you there. Lustrous and sleek locks in place, it’s time to show off your smooth side.


What is a keratin hair treatment?

“Hair is made up of keratin: undergoing a keratin treatment simply means putting the protein back into the hair which can be lost due to aging and chemical services,” explains Bukasa.

This all-star treatment is all you need to ramp up your hair game, letting you walk out of the salon feeling like a million bucks.

The process works like this:

“Keratin gets plugged into your hair which bonds with your own natural keratin," Bukasa explains. "This results in...a smooth, shiny, soft, and straightened effect in your hair,” says Bukasa.

Keratin hair benefits can include an increased in the look of shine and silkiness your hair has as well as reduced frizz and hassle-free styling so you can achieve the looks you want effortlessly.

Just remember to care for your keratin-treated hair right by watching out for heat, using color as sparingly as possible, and avoiding over-washing your hair. Just a few simple things that can help guarantee that you get the most out of your keratin hair!


Ways To Wear Keratin Hair


Sleek And Straight

We’re longtime fans of pairing a middle parting with poker-straight hair, and no texture works better than keratin for it! This fab look puts your face front and center, drawing attention to your features. Sleek and soft locks are oh-so-achievable with Mizani Original Butter Blend Relaxer, as well.


Sculpted Bedhead

This style is giving us life! Can you say H-A-I-R G-O-A-L-S? The chunky bangs, stylish cut, and the tousled waves all come together to create a perfect face-framing style. Mizani Lived-in Sculpting Paste is the secret weapon behind short hair. It's particularly ideal when you’re after the 3 D's: drama, definition, and dimension!



Big, bouncy and beautiful, to achieve something this fabulous, volume is critical! To get this textured look, try Mizani Curl Define Pudding to give you waves lasting definition. And remember: If you use heat, always apply a heat protectant spray first—we love Mizani Thermasmooth Style and Style Again for top-notch results under the hottest conditions.

Give your hair what it’s craving—time to get keratin hair!
