This is how we do KFusion Keratin Treatment at PAINT

Youtube Video

Our KFusion Keratin treatment is one of most popular treatments at PAINT in Hale. We are the only salon in the area to offer this unique treatment that is 100% Formaldehyde free even when heated. What does this mean? Simple, most keratin treatments contain the carcinogenic chemical formaldehyde (it's commonly used to embalm dead bodies, yuck). You'll be surprised how often it is used, but not in any of our hair or nail varnishes/nail gels at PAINT!

Anyway, back to KFusion, many similar treatments claim not to contain Formaldehyde but in fact do, especially when heated up (check the video, it's a key part of the process). Manufacturers use a loophole in international law that says they can say it doesn't contain Formaldehyde provided the percentage is below a certain level! How crazy is that? Rest assured, KFusion is totally, unequivocally Formaldehyde Free. No nasty smells for you or your stylist. And to prove the point even more, the makers of KFusion (L'Kerabelle by D&LHair) have had it tested to say it's not only safe for pregnant or breastfeeding women, but also people who have had chemotherapy.

In the video, PAINT owner Karen Galkoff, is shown applying the treatment. The first stage is to clarify the hair. It's blasted dry and then K Fusion is applied. Karen then leaves the product in the hair for 45-60 minutes before rinsing it off. She then uses her flat irons to bond/seal the treatment to the hair. The whole process usually takes 2-3 hours (depending on the length and thickness of your hair). Our professionally trained stylist will tell you how long to leave the product in your hair before washing it out (typically 48 hours). The longer you leave it the longer it will last. It's important not to tie your hair back during this period unless you use a special invisibobble.

It's also very important to use the correct shampoo and conditioner to help maintain your hair. Sodium Chloride and Sulphate free shampoos and conditioners are a must. Please only buy and use the products sold to you at the salon. These products have been specially chosen to enhance the life of KFusion in your hair.

Karen has been using KFusion in her hair for 8 years now and says "I was one of the first people in the UK to use KFusion and my hair hasn't looked back since! It used to take me an hour every time I washed my hair to dry it - now it only takes me 10 to 15 minutes and sometimes I'll even let it dry naturally." Karen thought so much of the product that she even took it to the USA where she had a salon, and guess what? It was the best selling service in the salon that was in the heart of Florida - the home of the frizziest hair on the planet!
