I just can’t do it… but I still love that fresh, smooth blow-wave feel

You hear this word KERATIN, being thrown around in hair products and services. But what does it do and what is it?

We talk to Keratin Specialist Kirsty at the salon about this holey grail of a hair treatment.

When I’m first chatting with my clients, I always ask ‘How’s your hair been’? Dry, frizzy, it takes longer to do then you have time for and then end up in a hair catastrophe the moment you step outside, are all replies I hear too often.

If you find that it is all too much to deal with, but you’d still love that fresh, smooth blow-wave feel and look – this is the answer you’ve been searching for.

We’ve all heard you say, ‘Now, can you come home with me and do my hair every morning’? ‘I’ll never be able to get my hair to look like you do.’

We understand that it’s always better when someone else does your hair. And to be honest, if our clients were as good at doing their hair as we are – we’d all be out of a job!

What if I was to tell you that life could be a lot faster, more comfortable and less stressful to achieve a salon blow-wave at home?

Speaking for myself, even as a highly trained professional – I too know the struggle is real.

Cezanne Keratin Smoothing Treatment to the rescue!

I’ve personally had a Cezanne Keratin Smoothing Treatment done a few times now and now cannot live without it. I would spend up to 50 minutes to blow-dry and straighten my hair, only to find I’d look like Lionel after a few hours! Since having a Cezanne Keratin Smoothing Treatment, it now only takes me 25-30 minutes to blow-dry my hair, and I no longer need to straighten afterward. (BONUS, less heat damage to my hair!) Even a little rain no longer sends me running for the hills.

71DSZhoEveL._SY450_What is Keratin?

Keratin is a protein found in the hair, skin and nails.
Daily exposure to pollution, chemicals and blow-drying, all damage the hair of is natural keratin. Once the keratin from your hair is depleted, your inner hair (cortex) swell’s as the outer (cuticle) is exposed to more damage. Infusing keratin back into your hair is the best option to get your lost protein back.

Ladies (why do men get all the good genes?) as we get older our hair starts to produce significantly less protein and lipids (moisture), resulting in – you guessed it, dryer frizzier hair. Before Keratin Smoothing Treatment’s, oils and heavy conditioning were the most accessible form of treating fluffy hair. Treating the hair this way, often leaves the hair waterlogged and takes much longer to dry. Who’s got time for that?

Nowadays, thankfully we have Cezanne Keratin Smoothing Treatment. It’s taken the hairdressing world by storm and mine also.

What is Keratin Smoothing Treatment and how does it work?

It’s a process that binds keratin back into the structure of the hair, which help’s it to be protected it from daily torture. We infuse in the Keratin Smoothing Treatment by blow-drying, followed by sealing it in by running a low heat iron over each section.

What kind do we use at Common Thread and why?
We use a Keratin Smoothing Treatment called ‘Cezanne’. The reason we love and wouldn’t use anything else is that Cezanne is free of all the bad boy chemicals you find in other Keratins. It’s free from formaldehyde, carcinogens or other dangerous chemicals like parabens, sulphates, and phthalates.


I’ve heard Keratin Smoothing Treatments are super expensive…
They sure used to be. When they first come out, depending on what brand and process a salon was using you’d be looking at $450-$700. Good news is, with more demand from our distributors we now can pass on the reduced price to you as clients. Our Cezanne Keratin Smoothing Treatments now start from $170.
