Keratin hair smoothing has
exploded as a top-selling salon service
category in just three years.
In an effort to comply with standards,
Simply Smooth puts every
batch of product through independent
lab testing and openly
provides stylists and clients
with straight facts about the
chemistry. Simply Smooth gives
clients a full range of longevity
and frizz and curl reduction
"When marketed properly, this product is for anyone who comes into the salon," says Doreen Guarneri, Simply Smooth co-creator. "It's not like a chemical straightener, because the client still can style her hair straight or curly, but now it will be humidity-resistant. The hair and the curl will stay calmer."
Don't Miss This
Simply Smooth's fastest-growing service is Color Lock, which doubles as a keratin treatment and clear gloss for hair color clients. No extra booking time is necessary, and Color Lock is a great way to introduce clients to the benefits of keratin smoothing. Or, make the introduction through either of Simply Smooth's two take-home keratin treatments.
"We've taken a stance on keratin treatments," says Louis Guarneri, co-creator of Simply Smooth. "We will email you certification from an outside lab. Every company should let stylists and clients know what they're breathing."
