Yes, we know.
Keratin Treatments are a LIFE-SAVER. Whether you have natural curls or whether your hair is so damaged from bleaching and colouring, Keratin Treatments can make all the frizz go away in just TWO HOURS.
Keratin Treatments are hair treatments that bind a layer of keratin around the hair and seal it via heat. This restores the hair's outer layer, giving it the smooth and silkiness so that you can comb through your hair easily. It also repels water and protects your hair against UV rays, another reason that keeps your hair frizz free for months.
It also tends to straighten your hair temporarily for 2-3 months, making it a viable alternative to rebonding. So for those who want to understand the difference, read about our article on how Keratin Treatments are different from Rebonding.
There are however many types of Keratin Treatments out there, so for those of you who are interested, we'd highly recommend you to read about the differences between Hair Botox, Keratin Treatments, Cinderella Treatments and Brazilian Blowout - all of which are Keratin Treatments.
As amazing as it sounds, Keratin Treatments are NOT permanent and last for about 4-6 months, depending on how much you wash your hair. The price difference can also be quite big across salons. So to give you a better idea of how much you should pay, we have listed the top hair salons in Singapore offering value-for-money Keratin Treatments below $300.
Price: $230 for NOV Treatment, $320 for Kerasilk Keratin Treatment (Promo - 20% off for New Customers for selected stylists)
COVO may be well known for its omotenashi Japanese service and semi-private spaces located at shophouses in Keong Saik Rd and Katong but those who've been to COVO will tell you that the range of Keratin Treatments and Hair treatments as well as their prices are among the MOST competitive in Singapore.
For Keratin Treatments, for example, COVO offers both the NOV treatment and the Goldwell Kerasilk Treatment. Goldwell Kerasilk is the traditional keratin treatment that can give even those with stubborn curls straight and frizz free hair for 4-6 months. NOV treatment, on the other hand, is a milder form of Keratin Treatment that can remove the frizz WITHOUT straightening your hair too much - giving you natural volume for 3-5 months.
Best of all, prices for NOV treatment is also quite a bit cheaper, making it a viable alternative for those of us who just want to remove our frizz.
They also tend to offer 20% off all services for new customers on weekdays, making the price go as low as $184 after discount!
Price: $230 for NOV Treatment, $320 for Kerasilk Keratin Treatment (Promo - 20% off for New Customers for selected stylists)
Another offshoot of COVO, Finder by COVO brings the same semi-private authentic Japanese experience for its customers - this time by the team of top Japanese stylists anchored by Shobu, Kazz and Hajime. Many of them speak English quite fluently and is very strong with haircuts, if it's something you'd like to add to your treatment.
Hajime on the other hand, is amazing with colours. FYI, it is recommended to go for hair colours BEFORE your keratin treatment as the treatment tends to seal your hair and so the colours will find it hard to penetrate well. Colour your hair then go for keratin and you'll find your colour lasting for a much longer period of time.
As they are a sister company of COVO, you'd be able to find the same suite of Keratin Treatments e.g. NOV as well as Goldwell Kerasilk right here at Finder COVO.
Price: $325 for Kerasilk Keratin Treatment
Promo: 10% off for New Customers for selected stylists
Stepping in into Flamingo Hair Studio isn’t like any other hair salon – it feels like entering an oasis with its greenery, decor, natural light and ample space for customers. Oh, and they have flamingos too – although it's only just a part of the decor but hey, that still counts.
Flamingo Hair Studio is also one of the first few Japanese Hair Salons that offers Keratin Hair Treatments. As many of the hairstylists here have wavy and curly hair, the focus here therefore is to help customers create easily maintainable hairstyles in the hot and humid Singapore - all while giving you the ideal Japanese hair experience with a personal touch.
Keratin Hair Treatments are definitely part of the consideration but beyond that, Flamingo Hair Studio also offers an in-depth consultation that considers other hair services e.g. hair treatments, rebonding and perm before deciding what is the best hair service for your hair.
Their extensive experience managing wavy, curly hair makes them a top choice for customers looking to subdue their own.
Price: Organic QOD Keratin Treatment at $250
Want to look for an experienced hairstylist with really curly hair for advice? You can't miss Ann's Studio.
Blessed with curly hair herself, Annie is well known for her curly hair management skills. Thanks to her years of training in the UK, she uses a combination of haircuts, keratin treatments as well as straightening to help customers achieve their desired hairstyles - zero judgment given. She encourages you to keep your hair curly with haircuts and styling techniques back at home but even when you don't, she'll recommend the best anti-frizz keratin treatments to give your hair natural volume.
To Annie though, it is not just how long the keratin stays on your hair and how straight your hair becomes after that. She considers even the health impact of keratin treatments when thinking about what keratin treatment to bring in. That's why she searched around the world and decided to use the QOD Organic Keratin Treatment from Australia. This is a rinse-off keratin treatment that minimizes the negative health impacts of keratin treatments, making it safer for customers and even for her and her staff when doing the Keratin Treatments for customers.
Friends of Annie know that she is big on yoga and a holistic lifestyle, so that doesn't come as a surprise. The rinse off keratin treatments may not make your hair as straight but at least you'll have the piece of mind that this organic alternative is that much safer.
Oh yes, as the price demonstrates, it's cheaper too!
Price: $260 - $300 for K Gloss Treatment, $270 to $310 for Brazilian Blowout
(Promo: 50% off Keratin Treatments when you come for a haircut or 40% off Keratin Treatments if you come for standalone Keratin Treatment)
Located on the second floor of a historical shophouse along Tanjong Pagar Road, this Japanese upstart of a salon gives a chill and relaxing vibe with abundant natural light coming in from its windows. As pretty as it is though, its low prices of Keratin Treatment is a big reason that attracts us here.
Believing that treatments are essential to make haircuts and colours last, Twist Hair Salon keeps the prices for treatments and Keratin Treatments at a minimum. They therefore often offer huge discounts on their Keratin Treatments, particularly when paired with a haircut. Brazilian Blowout for example cost a maximum of $310 at the salon - but the price can drop to as low as $155 with a haircut or $186 without a haircut. We recently followed Agent Y to Twist Hair Salon and was really impressed by how effective Brazilian Blowout is at controlling frizz - with a treatment time of less than 2 hours!
Easy on the wallet while still getting a Japanese hair experience with a Singaporean twist, Twist Hair Salon is definitely a hidden gem you have to check out.

Looking more than just a typical Keratin Treatment? The stylists here at Be Salon are able to customize the Keratin Treatment in such a way that the effects are semi-permanent.

This allows the hair the Soft keratin to last REALLY LONG while still maintaining the voluminous straight hair!
Here's how the hair looks 2 months after.

From its all-glass exterior, placement of the bright lights to its unique location within Bishan Park, The Bund is like no other hair salon we've seen.
Surrounded yet shielded from the natural elements in an air-conditioned bubble, The Bund exudes a stylish sophistication that brilliantly integrates high-society with the serenity of Bishan Park, a design we think lives up to its name as the First Luxury Garden Hair Salon in Singapore!
But that isn't why we're recommending it for Keratin Treatment. The Bund has in its team Keratin Expert Alvin and we can only tell you that we are full of praises for this guy.
One of the most conscientious and knowledgeable stylists we've met, Alvin is able to control ANY hair texture with Keratin. Whether you have coarse or fine hair, healthy or frizzy hair, The Bund has the right Keratin Treatment to help control your frizz.
That's not all that's different though.
Keratin Treatment is applied using very different techniques here at The Bund, which is possibly a reason why the ARUA Keratin Treatment is better absorbed by the hair and last for WAY longer than at other salons.
These results are enough to put a smile on the faces of most customers and why we are so confident to introduce The Bund as one of the best hair salons for Keratin Treatments in Singapore!
