Welcome to the World of Keratin Complex by Coppola.

Advanced technology. A new frontier in hair care.
Keratin Complex Smoothing Therapy infuses natural keratin into the hair cuticle. Natural keratin, buffered with our unique patent-pending process, will eliminate up to ninety-five percent of frizz and curl making the hair healthier, shinier, smother, more manageable and easier to maintain, reducing daily styling time. For many, this is truly a life changing experience! It will rejuvenate the hair, giving it a soft, silky feel that everyone is raving about.

The special formula encases the hair follicle with a keratin bond to promote healing and helps keep the toxins in the environment, such as smoke, pollution and ultraviolet rays from entering the hair.

The Treatment Process
The service will take approximately two hours, depending upon hair length and texture.

Unlike other salon services, the more you treat your hair, the healthier it becomes. With each treatment, the build-up of Keratin makes the hair:
Smoother and Silkier
Straighter and Shinier
Easier and Faster to blow-dry
Close to being “maintenance-free”

Q: What is Keratin Complex Natural Keratin Smoothing Treatment by COPPOLA?

A: It is a specially formulated revitalizing and rejuvenating treatment for the hair that eliminates up to 95% of frizz and curl. The advanced patent-pending formulation restores and restructures hair by infusing a special blend of natural keratin deep into the cuticle. The keratin is bonded into the cuticle by the heat of the flat iron to relax the hair’s sub-cuticle layer.

Q: How much time should be allowed for each client?

A: Time should be determined on an individual basis. It is recommended that you screen each client by asking about their hair length, type and texture. Please allow a 2 to 3 hour window.

Q: What results can be expected after the treatment?

A: The hair will be more manageable and take much less time to style. It will be noticeably softer and straighter, with added life and shine as well as a lengthened look.

Q: Can hair be colored before the treatment?

A: Yes! A great time to have the treatment done would be directly after permanent color, semi-permanent or highlights. The treatment will extend the life and seal the color in, leaving it vibrant, however, for demi-gloss or toners have color done 3-5 days after treatment for optimal results.

Q: Can the treatment be done on chemically treated hair, previously relaxed or straightened hair?

A: YES, It is recommended to wait two weeks between any chemical services and adjust iron temperature based on hair type as listed in instructions.

Q: How many days after the treatment before the hair can get wet or be washed?

A: You must wait 3 days (72 hours) before washing your hair or swimming.

Q: Can the hair be pulled back or clipped up during the 72-hour waiting period?

Q: How often can the treatment be done?

A: The treatment can be done as often as every 4-6 weeks.

Q: Is the re-application of the treatment done on the entire head or just on the new growth?

A: The re-application should be done on the entire head as the build-up of keratin can only improve, not harm, the hair.

Q: How long will the treatment last?

A: The treatment lasts 3-5 months, depending on lifestyle and maintenance, provided the client follows all after care instructions.

Q: Should the hair be cut before or after the treatment?
