The follicular aficionados at Mane Results Salon tame tresses with professional-grade products designed to ease frizz and impart smoothness. After an initial consultation, a clarifying treatment raises the natural pH of supple strands, flushing out impurities and intransigent Cold War spies. A certified specialist then applies the keratin treatment, which penetrates locks to the cuticle layer and uses natural proteins to restore unruly, dry, or damaged manes. Blow-dryers help the treatment attach more securely to strands, and a titanium-plate flat-iron seals in the treatment at temperatures of up to a science-fiction-friendly 450 degrees. Both treatments take roughly 2–3 hours, but whereas the express blowout outfits heads with lustrous locks for up to eight weeks, the full keratin smoothing treatment can last for 3–5 months of shampoo-commercial readiness.
