Lamination confidently leads the list of the most popular salon hair treatments, so it is not surprising that it so often causes controversy about its effectiveness and recommendations for conducting. We understand the nuances of this beauty procedure in our material.
Now the beauty market offers us a huge number of products, products and procedures for hair care. There are a huge number of names of restorative procedures alone, and therefore the question of how to make the right choice and not make a mistake becomes one of the most pressing.
Special attention has recently been focused on lamination, around which a considerable number of opinions have already developed — both truthful and directly opposite. We put all the dots on the I regarding this procedure together with the Redken expert By Maria Klimova.
What is hair lamination?
This procedure involves a process during which the hair is covered with a thin layer of an active substance that creates the same “silk effect” and protects the hair from the negative effects of the external environment (polluted atmosphere, exhaust gases, cigarette smoke, dust and debris in the air), as well as from sudden temperature changes.
Lamination is easily combined with hair coloring, that is, it can be color lamination, which will combine the processes of toning the hair and giving them a well-groomed appearance.
Now let’s look at some common questions about lamination and determine which of them are true, which are not and what you need to keep in mind when deciding on this beauty procedure.
The procedure gives the hair a super shine
Super Glare — yes, it really is! The active substance used during the procedure envelops the hair and reduces its fluffiness, due to which a characteristic glossy effect appears. If your hair lacks shine and density, lamination is exactly for you.
Lamination provides complete hair restoration
The main action of the procedure is to visually improve the structure of the hair. Naturally, this procedure can give a little hair care, but the main thing for which it is intended is to improve the appearance of the hair and give it shine.
If your hair needs intensive restoration, and not just shine, it is worth considering other procedures that restore the structure of the hair, but at the same time do not give such a strong visual effect.
The lamination procedure involves a thermal effect on the hair
Please note — this procedure is performed without using a thermal tool. If you are offered lamination of hair with a thermal tool, for example, forceps for straightening, we are most likely talking about botox hair or keratin straightening, but not about lamination. Be careful when choosing a beauty salon and trust your hair only to competent specialists .
Lamination changes the structure of the hair
This procedure cannot straighten porous and fluffy hair for a long time, that is, it does not change the structure of the hair. If your goal is straightening, it is worth considering other restoration procedures. But you can also do lamination after, giving this procedure the task of enhancing the shine of the hair.
If you do lamination often, the health of the hair will deteriorate
Lamination can be performed every month — at the same time with such frequency it will not lead to any deterioration in the quality of the hair. On the contrary, they will only become stronger, as they will be constantly protected.
