Keratin Treatment vs Hair Botox vs Hair Lamination vs Brazilian Blowout: What’s the Difference?


There’re so many anti-frizz smoothing hair treatments on the market. Each promises smoother and healthier-looking hair. It’s no wonder why many customers are clueless as to which one suits their hair type and needs. Here’s a helpful breakdown between Keratin Treatment, Hair Botox, Hair Lamination & Brazilian Blowout.


Chez Vous’ Brazilian Blowout Sealant

Brazilian Blowout Sealant is best suited for hair that is fried and beyond repaired

Brazilian Blowout Sealant is best suited for hair that is “fried” and significantly damaged by botched chemical services (beyond repair). Such hair type has the following characteristics:

Wiry-looking 
Mushy to touch when wet 
Breaks easily 

For such cases, no other hair treatments can reconstruct it from within. As, the hair has lost the core structure to retain any “nutrients”.

Chez Vous’ Brazilian Blowout Sealant acts like a bandage that wraps and seals the hair. Hence, enhances manageability, reduces breakage, and creates an illusion of presentable-looking hair – temporarily. 

How Brazilian Blowout Sealant Works

The main objective of Brazilian Blowout Sealant is to buy time for customers to wait and allow their hair to grow. This way, they can cut away the (beyond) damaged lengths when they have grown longer. 

Lastly, Brazilian Blowout Sealant is pH neutral, unlike modern-day Keratin Treatments, which are mostly acidic. Therefore, it avoids causing further damage to fragile strands.

Note: Salons should only use it as a last resort. Because it contains ingredients that are unfriendly to both salon workers and customers.

Longevity: 4 – 12 weeks depending on the severity of damage

Duration: 60 minutes

Price: $235 - $405, exclusive to Chez Vous Hair Salon 

Straightening Intensity: Medium

Suitable for: Customers who require urgent help to stop hair that’s “fried” from breaking upwards and need them to look at least presentable. As, chopping them off right away might be too short for their comfort.


Chez Vous’ Hair Botox and Fillers

Hair Botox and Fillers is the best hair treatment to nourish repair and defrizz damaged and unruly hair

Chez Vous’ Hair Botox and Fillers is best suited for hair that is:

Unruly
Frizzy
Dry
Damaged (but not “fried”)

Chez Vous’ Hair Botox and Fillers is an intensive smoothing, nourishing and reparative in-salon treatment, over-engineered to instantly de-frizz, hydrate and correct years of structural damage. Think of it as an all-in-one therapy!

 Hair Botox and Fillers Therapy

Unlike Keratin Treatments which are mostly protein-rich, Hair Botox and Fillers contains a higher concentration of moisturising agents. This prevents over-proteinisation of the hair. Hence, making hair soft & airy rather than stiff-looking. 

Hair Botox and Fillers Therapy is suitable for hair that is frizzy damaged dry and unruly

Customers will also be pleased to know that bond repairing actives and amino acids are used during the procedure to fortify the hair from within. 

Extracted from the Acacia Negra tree, Tannic Acids are used to re-align bonds. This creates a demi-permanent straightening effect to combat frizz and unruliness.

Note: Customers should not perm or rebond their hair after this treatment as the acid content used is incompatible with many retexturizing technologies. 

Longevity: 10 - 16 weeks with proper maintenance

Duration: 150 minutes

Price: $375 - $505, exclusive to Chez Vous Hair Salon

Straightening Intensity: Intense, but lower than Rebonding

Suitable for: Customers who want to have soft, smooth, healthy-looking hair that’s easy to manage.

Trivial: Chez Vous' Hair Botox and Fillers contains Cysteine - a key reparative ingredient used in Cysteine hair treatment, too.


Keratin Treatment

Keratin Treatment is suitable for hair that is frizzy unruly but not excessively damaged and dry

Anti-frizz Keratin Treatment is best suited for hair that is:

Unruly
Frizzy
But not excessively dry nor damaged

How does Keratin Treatment work

Keratin Treatment uses acid technology. Such as Glycolic Acid, Glyoxylic Acid and Acetic Acid. These acids produce demi-permanent hair straightening results without breaking the disulfide bonds. To enhance manageability. 

Keratin Treatment also infuses a high amount of protein into the hair to reduce its porosity and even out the hair’s surface – for greater smoothness. 

Unlike Hair Botox and Fillers, Keratin Treatment contains lesser moisture content. Thus, the hair might become coarse and dry after repeated treatments. Moreover, after a Keratin Treatment procedure, certain hair textures may become stiff and stick-straight-looking.

Note: Customers should not perm or rebond their hair after this treatment as the acid content used is incompatible with many retexturizing technologies. 

Longevity: 10 - 16 weeks with proper maintenance

Duration: 120 minutes

Price: $235 - $405

Straightening Intensity: High

Suitable for: Customers who want smooth-looking hair that’s manageable. 

Chez Vous’ Sugar Hair Lamination

Advanced Sugar Hair Lamination

Chez Vous’ Sugar Hair Lamination is best suited for hair that is:

Unruly
Frizzy
But not excessively dry nor damaged

Sugar Hair Lamination has different curl reduction intensity to choose from

Compared to Keratin Treatments, Sugar Hair Lamination has different levels of curl reduction options for customers to choose from and has less straightening intensity.

Foundation: Negligible Curl Reduction (must be combined with a leave-in moisturiser)
Advanced: Soft Curl Reduction
Supreme: Medium Curl Reduction

Advanced Sugar Hair Lamination Exclusive to Chez Vous

Instead of using Acid technology to straighten and re-align the hair bonds, Chez Vous’ Sugar Hair Lamination utilises a repairing “Bandage”. This topcoat temporarily restores the defensive layer of the hair, sealing out humidity for smooth, glossy and healthy-looking strands. 

Advanced Sugar Hair Lamination Does Not Eliminate 100 per cent of the natural curls

Due to the lack of bond re-alignments, the result tends to be less straight and more natural-looking than Keratin Treatments. It is perfect for customers who like to keep their hair slightly under control and neat-looking, without appearing like they deliberately straighten them. After all, for some customers, retaining movement and airiness in their tress is more important than having pin-straight hair.

Bonus: it does not cause complications to future perm and rebonding procedures!

Supreme Sugar Hair Lamination

Unlike Keratin Treatment, which uses proteins, Sugar Hair Lamination uses Sugar Actives to strengthen and fortify the hair internally. Resulting in soft-to-touch hair with movement and body.

Longevity / Duration / Price: 

Foundation: 2 weeks / 45 minutes / $175 - $225 
Advanced: 6 weeks / 60 minutes / $235 - $325 
Supreme: 6 – 12 weeks / 90 minutes / $305 - $455 


Straightening Intensity: Customisable, but lower than Keratin Treatments

Suitable for: Customers who want smooth and healthy-looking hair that’s manageable without being stiff or stick-straight-looking. 

Trivial: Chez Vous' Supreme Sugar Hair Lamination contains Cysteine - a key reparative ingredient used in Cysteine hair treatment, too.

ABOUT CHEZ VOUS

Chez Vous Main Salon

If you are looking for an innovative salon that provides the latest and most technologically advanced hair treatments, look no further, Chez Vous Hair Salon is the place. Since its establishment in 1995, Chez Vous' in-depth expertise and pioneering spirit have resulted in many first-to-market innovations. Rumour has it that the experts at Chez Vous curate and procure more than 100 different brands of products annually to offer the best to their customers. Moreover, they even have an in-house R&D team to formulate new treatments and techniques to better target every woman's hair concerns.

For example, many customers have been bleaching and dyeing their hair repeatedly as a form of self-expression in recent years. However, this causes their hair to be damaged, dry and frizzy. Thus, in 2017, Chez Vous invented an all-new demi-permanent hair treatment, Hair Botox and Fillers, which took Singapore by storm! Inspired by skincare for that flawless look, this therapy rewinds years of structural damage and allows women to walk away with smoothened, nourished and hydrated hair – that's easy to manage.

Another notable creation launched and introduced by Chez Vous is their Sugar Hair Lamination service in 2021. Thanks to the sweltering and humid weather in Singapore, it's no surprise that many women are suffering from frizzy and unruly hair. This signature treatment helps reduce frizz and daily blow-dry time, allowing many time-pressed urbanites to enjoy hair that's highly manageable and healthy-looking. The best part? There are 3 versions; each has different curl reduction intensity to match your style and needs.    

Their recent launch of Hair Defence Technology in 2022 is simply ground-breaking too. Foreseeing the public's call for help to reduce damage caused during chemical processing, this new plex technology cushions the impact of chemicals by up to 50%. As the old saying goes, "Prevention is better than Cure". #Indeed  

Given their salon's unique "Only Hair Directors Allowed" policy, where all stylists have either a minimum of 10 years of experience or are exceptionally skilled in their area of expertise. And them being one of the most positively reviewed salons in Singapore, you can rest assured that you're in good hands.
