Spring Smoothing at House of Kiyo!

With April showers come May flowers, and frizz. Plenty of frizz. We are here to tell you to fight the frizz, and the frizz won’t fight back! We have been searching long and hard (for over a year, believe it or not) to find the best natural smoothing system, and we are ready to share it with you!

No Vapor. No fumes. No need for masks or ventilation. It’s nature’s way of smoothing.

Let’s face it ladies, the Brazillian Blowout is gone in Canada. While we loved the results, the formaldehyde just isn’t worth the risk to our health.


Cezanne Smoothing Treatment!

Cezanne Perfect Finish Keratin Smoothing Treatment reduces frizz and delivers smoother, stronger, healthier, more manageable and exquisitely beautiful hair that lasts for months. The process is as simple as a colour, can be applied the same day, and there is no down time. Your hair will still hold a curl, if you desire, or feel free to toss your smooth locks up in a ponytail and head to the gym right after your treatment without fear of telltale ponytail lines.  Leave the salon with beautiful, healthy, manageable hair—no strings attached.

No formeldehyde? What are the active ingredients?

Cezanne’s proprietary formulation is a combination of ingredients including Sericin, a component of silk. In silk, Sericin acts as cement between fibrous filaments. It acts in a similar way when Cezanne is applied to the hair, bonding to natural keratin and cementing itself between strands of keratin proteins. It also contains keratin and gyoxyloylcarbocysteine. Unlike Carbocysteine systems you may be familiar with, Cezanne doesn’t have the unpleasant smell. Cezanne contains Glycolic Acid, which is a well-known exfoliant and moisturizer for the skin.

The treatment uses a revolutionary low pH system with a similar acidity to lemon juice to open the cuticle and infuse the cortex with a proprietary blend of Sericin, keratin, botanical extracts and vitamins, replacing lost and damaged protein mass. When heat is applied during the flat iron process, the cuticle is closed and the proprietary blend of healthy ingredients is locked into the hair, protecting and smoothing the hair from the inside out.

How long will a Smoothing Treatment last?

The Perfect Finish treatment will last 3-5 months on average. Similar to formaldehyde-based keratin smoothing treatments, the amount of time varies by client hair type, texture and maintenance routine. Hair can be maintained in a normal way, washed, styled, flat ironed, curled and blowdried. Many clients find an ease to air styling after this smoothing treatment as well due to reduced frizz.

Cezanne Smoothing Treatments are available at both locations; Kiyo Salon & Day Spa in Nanaimo (250-716-9916) and Kiyo Salon & Boutique in Parksville (250-248-2000), and prices start at only $150. A complimentary in-salon consultation is required with each treatment for accurate quote and timing of your service.

If you are battling frizz and looking forward to beach days, camping, and no maintenance hair, this is the treatment for you!
