Keratn Complex

We believe in beautiful hair, every day. Keratin Complex® revolutionized the beauty industry in 2007 when a group of industry innovators discovered a new way to care for your hair by merging proven keratin science with cutting-edge technology. Since then, we have continued to push boundaries and remain the leaders in smoothing with a full collection of customizable keratin treatments for every hair type. 

We are proud to be the #1 product line of choice for salon professionals. We have brought Keratin to a full line of salon-quality hair care products including a comprehensive keratin-enhanced color line. Our unique formulas are engineered with our proprietary Keratin to eliminate frizz, repair damage, strengthen, and soften for undeniably healthy hair.

Our smoothing treatments and color services are available at certified salons, such as Hair Society Institute.  HSI has Keratin Complex products available to purchase on site which includes blow dry aids, hot tools, styling products, and shampoos and conditioners right here to experience the transformative benefits of Keratin Complex.
