Choosing the right flat iron is essential for getting the best results from your keratin treatment. The flat ironing part during your keratin treatment requires high heat. The high heat of the flat iron is necessary for sealing the keratin in your hair and to ensure superior shine and a silky smooth look.
When you use a hot hair iron to seal a keratin treatment onto the hair shaft your flat iron must be constructed with titanium plates. Titanium has the ability to reach up to the set high temperature in just a few seconds. It is inert and will not interact with any styling products. Titanium also retains heat better than ceramics and offers even heat distribution. The titanium plates will retain the consistent heat levels, once you start straightening. This will result in the perfect finish and will give your hair unbeatable shine.
To activate or catalyze the keratin in the treatment, the flat iron should be capable of reaching 235 °C. When doing the treatment, it is important to have a flat iron that can maintain the temperature you set without heat fluctuation.
