What is New in the Keratin World 2014 - Goldwell KeraSilk is in Canada Now

From frustrating to fabulous hair. Discover the ultimate transformation. KeraSilk keratin treatment is the first customizable long-lasting smoothing service for hair like silk for up to 5 months. Kera Silk Keratin Smoothing Service features a two-component system designed to provide varying intensities of shaping or smoothing – customized by us, unique in your hair and desired outcome. And we are loving it.


  • Makes unruly, frizzy hair manageable
  • Softens curls and smooths frizz
  • Reduces your daily styling time significantly
  • KeraShape technology:
  • KeraShape technology, consisting of Glyoxylic Acid, Keratin and Silk Proteins, penetrates the hair structure and create a matrix of new keratin bonds.

Goldwell states "hair smooth like silk for up to five months" however we can't confirm this statement because we started offering this service in October 2014.

For over 5000 years, silk has been regarded as one of the most luxurious materials. Well known for its elasticity and shine, silk is one of the strongest natural fibers in the world. Now, you can get that luxury in your hair care products with KeraSilk.

Features and benefits:

  • Extra care for extremely dry, damaged hair
  • Smooth, shiny hair following a salon service, such as chemical straightening
  • The perfect solution for coarse hair

KeraSilk provides key ingredients to revitalize the hair, as well as use the filters to protect hair from environmental factors. Silk proteins in wheat bran work together to smooth the rough areas of the cuticle. Hair is left beautifully smooth, shiny and conditioned.

  • Silk protein is a derivative of the silk fiber, considered to be one of the strongest, most elastic natural fibers. Because hair keratin and silk protein have a similar chemical structure, hair benefits from KeraSilk immediately. Silk offers incredible shine, softness and suppleness due to his smooth fiber structure.
  • Wheat bran regulates and controls moisture absorption and evaporation. In KeraSilk, wheat lipids are extracted from the bran to provide the hair with vitamin E to nourish the scalp, and a balancing protection from harmful environmental influences.
  • Jojoba oil offers needed moisture and shine.

What was new in keratin treatments in 2013

I was contemplating keeping this information on my home page; but, we are still offering the services. So here are some products we are still offering from some big launches in 2013. We are still offering Brazilian Blowout Select which is now available to Californians, Keratin Complex Advanced Glycolic Smoothing Therapy and TrisSola

Brazilian Blowout Select came from Brazilian Blowout INC. This was not available to Americans until November 2014. After some under whelming products, Brazilian Blowout Zero and the Brazilian Blowout Zero Plus they have developed a product that delivers great results in different hair types. I also can confidently say it is one of the better products sold in Canada.

Keratin Complex Advanced Glycolic Smoothing System came to Canada from the Coppola Keratin Treatment brand. At our salon, we have clients who are loyal to this treatment and won't go back to the treatment we use to do in their hair. Keratin Complex Advanced Glycolic Smoothing System gives clients the benefits of same day styling and immediate rinse out. It protects the hair against breakage, softly blends the line of demarcation on previously relaxed or chemically straightened hair that will last up to three months.

From the Makers of Cadiveu Brasil Cacau Keratin Thermal Reconstruction comes ‘TrisSolo SOLO’ which is perfect for people who have severely damaged over-processed hair. Get the results you want without formaldehyde derivatives, cysteine or lye. This product has been marketed as Botox for the hair. TrisSolo SOLO anti-aging taming treatment is all you need to deliver smooth, frizz free hair. The BoNT-L peptide, a synthetic peptide, with Botox like activity, seals split ends and restructures damaged hair. It infuses hair with pro-vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants. It’s straightens, smoothes and strengthens hair for up to 12 weeks. Eliminates frizz, and adds shine, style with ease. In essence what it does, is fills the holes in the cuticle of the hair with porosity issues. Wash and style the same day; no restrictions! We can also colour the hair on the same day as this treatment. And this is the treatment that we encourage our guests to do before they to do any other any other keratin treatment when their hair has been excessively bleached because it will make the hair much softer and more manageable and gives time to heal the hair.

Liquid Keratin Professional Restorative Smoothing Treatment launched in fall 2011

Liquid Keratin Professional Restorative Smoothing Treatment is an exclusive system developed to promote hair straightening, smoothing and relaxing waves while repairing damage caused from other chemical processes. Because of its ability to penetrate the hair fibre, Liquid Keratin Professional Restorative Smoothing Treatment, provides more shine, conditioning, strength and resistance to hair fibers damaged by other chemical processes. This treatment is certified Formaldehyde & Aldehyde Free.

Their keratin is a purified protein fraction isolated from pure New Zealand wool. These keratin proteins and keratin peptides, both have molecular weights which allow the formation of coherent films on the cuticle surface and penetration into the cortex. In independent clinical lab studies, Liquid Keratin treated hair was Longer, Softer, Shinier with 100% Less Frizz. This brand launched in Canada in November 2011.
