A keratin treatment is a costly expense, but it can work wonders for treating frizz and smoothing hair. But, just like any pricey investment, maintenance is key to prolonging the benefits. Gussi has created the Protection Plan Upkeep Shampoo and Conditioner specifically for post-treatment hair, but it’s great for non-treated hair, colored hair and all hair types that are in need of frizz-fighting benefits, too.
My Hair Type:
Long, color-treated (I’m brunette) and keratin-treated. I get a keratin treatment twice a year because it shortens my blow-dry time and helps to eliminate frizz in humid conditions (rain or trips to Florida).
I love this gentle cleansing duo because the products are formulated with powerful keratin and proteins, and they’re sulfate-free. Hydrolyzed keratin helps to strengthen your strands and builds a protective layer on the hair. This helps to boost shine and adds moisture and manageability. Soy proteins will defend against over-processing and heat-styling while adding body and sheen.
How to Use:
Apply the shampoo to wet hair, and work into a lather. Because I only wash my hair every two to three days (and I like a double shampoo), the first wash wasn’t super sudsy due to the sulfate-free formula. However, the second wash did have a nice satisfying lather that left my hair feeling clean. After washing, rinse thoroughly and follow with a generous serving of the conditioner. I prefer to apply this mid-shaft to ends. To me, the scent is reminiscent of clean, freshly cut grass. After a quick blowdry, I could already see how shiny my hair was, and my sleek blowout did last longer than with other shampoo and conditioner.
The Bottom Line:
While this shampoo and conditioner are designed to prolong any keratin treatment, they’re great for everyone who wants smooth and sleek hair.
If you’re looking to bring your keratin treatment home, Gussi also offers an At-Home Keratin Treatment Kit. It only takes an hour to do and leaves you with smoother, shinier, healthier hair for up to six weeks. A no-brainer!
