No. 4: Who's the best candidate for a keratin hair treatment and who isn't?If you spend a ton of time blow drying and flat ironing your hair and/or have curls that you want to loosen, or if your hair has frizz or lacks shine, you're likely a good candidate. Keratin hair treatments work on a variety of hair textures including African American hair types, and color-treated or previously chemically-treated types, according to Jordana Lorraine, stylist and keratin hair treatment technician at the Dino Clark Salon in Santa Monica, Calif. Do avoid these treatments if you are pregnant, have severely damaged hair from too much bleaching, bleached hair that's super fine, stick straight fine hair or have slight waves you want to keep intact. Basically, if your hair can stand a 450-degree flat iron, it can handle this treatment.
