Unlike other products available on the market, such as relaxers or the Japanese Thermal Reconditioning, the Latino Treatment smooths the hair without damaging or changing its texture. Latino treatment is excellent for treating frizzy, damaged, unhealthy and mistreated hair. It can also be used by individuals who have undergone a hair extensions. The treatment can help restore hair’s resiliency resulting in more manageable hair. The Latino Protein treatment is not permanent, the effects will naturally fade out of the hair between 2-4 months and the natural wave or curl will gradually return. Treatment can be used on all hair types, including chemically treated hair (coloured, permed, relaxed, highlighted and bleached).
The application process lasts anywhere from 1.5 to 4 hours depending on the length and thickness of the hair. After product is applied, it is sealed with a hot iron which traps moisture, hydrates the hair and creates a glossy finish. Results are visible immediately after treatment is completed, clients are amazed to say the least. Hair looks healthy and youthful.

It can be tricky choosing the right Keratin Treatment that’s best suited for your hair type we always recommend you have a Qualified Hair Stylist decide what treatment is best but we have included some information below so you can understand the difference between our Charcoal Relaxing Treatment and our Guava Latino.
Our Charcoal Relaxing treatment is a thick heavy cream making it Ideal on hair that is thick, course, curly and stubborn. Its thick consistency helps to weigh down the hair during the processing time to achieve maximum results.
Performed in-salon, Guava Latino Keratin Treatment is applied to the hair and then infused with heat. The blend of amino acids and keratin proteins are absorbed into the hair cuticle, creating a protective layer that leaves hair repaired, smooth, shiny and healthy for up to four months.
The treatment should only be done by a professional stylist and takes between 2.5 to 3 hours, depending on the length and thickness of the hair. The Guava Latino Treatment can be applied to all hair types, including chemically treated hair, and is also highly recommended for those who have had hair extensions. It repairs damage and breakage, and rebuilds strength.
While Guava Latino can straighten hair a little, it is different from a straightening treatment. It holds more body in the hair, so your locks can still be wavy, but with a smoothing effect, which allows versatility to style wavy or straight as desired.
