Before modern hair treatments, frizzy hair could only be smoothed by pressing it with an iron or by running it through the fingers of a jazz pianist. Achieve a noteworthy 'do with today's Groupon: for $125, you get a keratin hair treatment at Karma Salon (a $300 value).
Operating within a Paul Mitchell Focus Salon, the stylists at Karma tame unruly locks with relaxing keratin treatments. Guests surf on complimentary WiFi or waves of amiable banter as specialists apply keratin-based products to the tresses. Found naturally within the hair, keratin protein adheres to damaged strands while heat from flat irons secure them in place. The resulting de-frizzled hair frocks remain straight for up to 2.5 months after the 2- to 3.5-hour session. Maintenance includes avoiding hair washing for three to four days and avoiding the urge to run back to ex-curling irons.
Some keratin-treatment products include the carcinogen formaldehyde, which may cause nosebleeds, headaches, vomiting, and respiratory problems, among other side effects. Learn more about the health risks here.
