Stylist Spotlight: The Savvy Smooth Professional



Travis has been in the hair industry for over 20 years and is a precision cutter and seasoned colorist. However, his favorite (and most frequent) service that he provides at Citrine is the Goldwell Kerasilk Smoothing treatment. Fortified with silk proteins and jojoba oil, the Goldwell Keratin Kerasilk treatment smooths out the hair cuticle; leaving soft, shiny and manageable hair with little to no effort. 

This smoothing treatment lasts 3-5 months (depending on lifestyle). We asked Travis which products he would recommend to help maintain the treatment at home. "My favorite products are the Goldwell Kerasilk Control shampoo combined with the Control smoothing mask as your conditioner. When combined, these two products help reinforce the Kerasilk treatment and also help it last longer as these products have actual Keratin in them."

Travis understands how hard it can be to have coarse, or unruly hair and strongly trusts in the Kerasilk system. With year round frizz management, the Smoothing treatment is ideal for the high humidity North Carolina summer months.



Goldwell Kerasilk Keratin Smoothing: Safe Alternative to Coppola Keratin

Goldwell Kerasilk Keratin Smoothing Treatment Citrine is revamping our approach to dealing with frizzy hair by introducing the Goldwell Kerasilk Keratin Smoothing treatment, which was recently endorsed in Cosmopolitan Magazine's October issue.   Our team received first-rate education in using this smoothing treatment to make sure it was the best and healthiest alternative to our former keratin treatment for both our staff and clients.

There has been a lot of buzz in the past few years about the dangers of keratin treatments which contain formalin which converts to formaldehyde when activated by heat.  Traditional keratin treatments contain the ingredient and label their products as formaldehyde-free based on the technical difference between the liquid and vapor forms of the chemical.

Martyn Smith, a professor of toxicology at the University of California at Berkeley: "Long-term, [formaldehyde is] reportedly toxic to your nervous system — impairing your mood, memory, balance, and sleep — and with repeated exposure, it can cause cancer."

All that to say...  Citrine's stylists  like to choose environmentally safe and healthy products for our clients and we found the solution with Goldwell's Kerasilk Keratin Smoothing treatment, which is truly formaldehyde free.  We are offering this service now.  So turn your fight with frizz over to the professionals and call us to schedule an appointment today!
