Frequently Asked Questions
What kind of results can I expect from Cezanne?
Cezanne Classic (formerly Perfect Finish) Keratin Smoothing Treatment reduces frizz and delivers smoother, stronger, healthier, more manageable and exquisitely beautiful hair that lasts for months.
How long will Cezanne Classic (formerly Perfect Finish) Keratin Treatment last?
The Classic 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.
I have been using formaldehyde-based keratin smoothing treatments. Will I see similar results with Cezanne?
Yes. You will get very similar results to your previous formaldehyde treatments without the health risks. In some cases, frizz and curl reduction will be less than results achieved by the formaldehyde-based systems.
However, you will enjoy several distinct advantages over other systems. Your hair can be colored on the same day, whether it’s before or after the treatment. Hair will still hold a curl, if you desire. You can go right from the salon to the gym or the pool and can also wash hair, use pins or put hair up in a ponytail directly after the treatment. You leave the salon with beautiful, healthy, manageable hair—no strings attached.
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.
