This Affordable Keratin Treatment at Twist Hair Salon Removes Frizz in 2 Hours!

Published on Dec 16, 2021

Rebonding used to be the default option people turned to remove frizz. Keratin Treatment however recently emerged as a credible alternative. Although the process isn't permanent ie. your curls revert back to normal in about 3-6 months, Keratin Treatment removes frizz IMMEDIATELY and doesn't leave an ugly kink at the end. It works best for those with fine and thin hair as Keratin Treatment adds weight to reduce frizz. It doesn't mean that those with coarse hair wouldn't benefit from Keratin Treatment; the straightening effect wouldn't be as obvious.

The key issue with Keratin Treatments, however, is the cost. Many hair salons charge Keratin Treatments at $300-$500 depending on hair length and brand of Keratin Treatment used. That's why we were ecstatic to uncover Twist Hair Salon at Tanjong Pagar. Established with the belief that everyone should have access to affordable treatments to manage their hair, Twist Hair Salon has been keeping the prices of their treatments and keratin treatments really competitive. At $168 for medium length hair and $180 for long hair, Keratin Treatments here is possibly the lowest in Singapore (while still using generous quantities of authentic Keratin Treatment).

More importantly, the experience here is really good. As the salon is founded by a Japanese stylist, you'll be glad to find that there is no pushing or selling here. Instead, they focus on giving you a peaceful and quiet experience that makes you want to come back time and time again.

Hi I'm Agent Y from Japan. I followed my husband here and have fallen in love with the foods and people of Singapore.

The thing I don't like so much though is the weather.

As you can see, my hair is SOOOO frizzy here in Singapore, it's kind of embarrassing for me to head out.

In the past, I'd turn to rebonding to remove frizz but my stylist from Twist Hair Salon shared that I don't have to do that anymore. There's something called Keratin Treatment that can take away the frizz and make my hair easy to maintain every morning.

When I inquired about the cost, I was pleasantly surprised to find that it cost less than $200, even cheaper than my usual rebonding!

I've never tried it but it does sound very attractive - so I decided to trust my stylist Shuhei.

For those who've never been here, Twist Hair Salon is located on the second level of a shophouse along Tanjong Pagar, a short distance away from Tanjong Pagar MRT.

Twist Hair Salon isn't just affordable, I love it here because the service is good and the ambience very relaxing.

Of course, it also helps that Shuhei san is Japanese and is able to explain to me everything in Japanese, although he is very fluent in English as well. According to Shuhei, the process starts with a hair wash, application of Keratin Treatment, ironing, a final wash and it should be done in about 1.5-2 hours. So speedy!

As promised, the process starts with a wash. Shuhei used a specially formulated shampoo to make sure that my hair is free of dirt and impurities.

Back at the seat, he toweled dry my hair before sectioning and applying the Keratin Treatment.

It may look simple but Shuhei shared that this requires a lot of experience to determine the amount of keratin treatment required for each hair texture. Too much and you'll find the hair becoming too stiff and heavy afterwards. Too little and the keratin doesn't last. 

Seeing how experienced Shuhei is with this treatment, I know my hair is in good hands.

After completing the application of Keratin Treatment, Shuhei started blowdrying my hair. Shuhei shares that this isn't what most other stylists at other salons will do. In fact, many would leave the keratin on the hair to be processed after 15 minutes or so. But for Shuhei, he found that blowdrying hair at this stage actually helps the eventual hairstyle retain more natural volume.

Approximately 30 minutes later, he started ironing my hair. Shuhei explains that heat from the straightener helps to seal a layer of Keratin around the hair. This makes it easier for us to comb through our hair and also removes the frizz.

To make sure an even layer of keratin is sealed onto the hair, Shuhei was careful to apply consistent pressure and does so 2-3 times for every strand.

Then, it was time for my final hair wash.

This last rinse-off is necessary to get rid of any excess keratin treatment that hasn't yet been processed.

And with the final blowdry, I am DONE!

I was a little worried that Keratin Treatment would make my hair look too flat afterwards but it seems not to be the case! Shuhei managed to make my hair look neat yet naturally voluminous. I love it!

Honestly, it looks better than when I rebonded my hair previously. 

Some part of me thinks that it makes me look younger too... at least I hope so. 

Thank you Shuhei san for always helping me achieve beautiful hair. Definitely coming back again once the treatment wears off!
