Brazilian & Keratin Treatments in Kildeer, IL

Thermal Reconditioning

Thermal Reconditioning was developed in the Orient with a revolutionary chemical and physical process that would create shiny straight hair devoid of frizz. It revolutionized hair straightening as it did two things traditional straightening could not achieve: Create lasting results and will not revert and create shiny hair devoid of frizz.

Keratin TreatmentsThe process is first a chemical solution that is applied and designed to break down the disulfide CYSTEINE bonds which is responsible for the amount of curl in one’s hair. This bond is to be processed enough to break down the bond to be able to restructure the curl. This process is crucial for desired results. Then, the first solution is rinsed out of the hair. A solution that contains amino acid peptides, moisturizer and keratin treatments are now applied to the hair and the flat ironing is started. This is another very crucial process in the treatment. If this is not done properly it will have less than desirable results and if done with poor techniques and/or lack of proper training and/or experience it could cause damage to the hair. Proper training and experience are crucial in this treatment.

As of 2010, Claude Thomas Salon & Spa has been doing this treatment for over 12 years. We average between 3 to 10 thermal in a week. If you’re in Palatine, Arlington Heights, Cook County, or Inverness, IL, contact us today to learn more about keratin treatments and more.

Depending on the curl pattern of the individual the process will last 6 months to 15 months. The time difference is the amount of curl pattern of the individual. If one’s hair is very curly and frizzy within a one to two inches of outgrowth this process will last in a general time frame of 6 months. If you have a more relaxed curl to very little curl from scalp where it gets to 4 to 6 inches of growth before curl and/or frizz starts to appear the results could be much longer (8 to 15-month frame).

  • Hair that has been previously straightened by harsh straightening process.
  • Hair has to be at least 3″ long.
  • Hair cannot be over processed with bleach or very damaged hair.
