How much does it cost to do a keratin? keratin treatment cost

This is one of the questions I most frequently receive in the mail.

And the answer is that a keratin treatment can cost between INR 5000 and 25000.

I bet you’ve made a scandalous face.And that you may be wondering how there can be so much difference. It all depends on whether you do it in a salon or decide to do it at home. 

Because a keratin treatment is a service.

A service performed by a professional with certain products.And as such, you have to pay the price.And it will also depend on where the salon is located. Because the prices are not the same in the Mumbai where the stars go as in a Muah salon. 

For example, if we talk about good salons, in Muah Saloon a keratin treatment can cost INR 23300 .While in Delhi, you can expect to pay around INR 15000 .And in Vashi, about INR 20000 .

In addition, it will also depend on the quality of the products.

It is not the same to go to a salon where they work with keratin from well-known brands such as KeraOrganic, GK or John Frieda, than to go to salons where they work with generic products.

And if other types of products are applied in addition to keratin, to carry out a more complete treatment, the price will also rise.And it will also depend on the length of your hair.

Since the professional will have to work much longer on long hair than on short hair.And you’ll also use more product on waist-length hair than shorter hair.For this reason, I cannot confirm a single price to do the keratin.

But if I will tell you:

  • Price difference between a keratin done in a salon and one done at home

Before we begin to explain to you what the price difference between a keratin treatment done at home and one done in a salon is based on, we are going to agree on something.

As the price differences between keratin treatments are very noticeable according to the City we are talking about, from now on I will talk about an average price.

The professional who performs a keratin treatment in the salon invests time.

When you perform this type of treatment in a salon, you should know that you will spend approximately four to five hours at the hairdresser’s.

Yes, this is how it is.

Keratin involves application time. But more than anything, it implies a very long time for sealing the product, which is done by passing the iron about fifteen times wick by wick. And when I say wick by wick, they are small locks of hair, as fine as possible.

Because that ensures that the product, which is nothing more than pure protein that relaxes the hair, restores its manageability and smooths it without causing permanent damage, works correctly.

To begin, the hairdresser will wash the hair with a Purifing shampoo to open the cuticle of the hair and ensure that there is no dirt that prevents the keratin from penetrating.

Then he will proceed to dry your hair.Then, he will place the keratin strand by strand, distributing it evenly.

Once you finish applying the keratin, you will proceed to dry the hair with a heat source.

That is, with a hair dryer. Almost like I’m blow drying . Then comes the hardest work for the hairdresser. Divide the hair into small sections, very small, and pass the iron, about fifteen times for each one of them.

This part of the work is the one that ultimately influences the most in the price of the keratin treatment performed in the salon.

Because the hairdresser or hairdresser will spend more than three hours standing up, passing the iron and making sure that the product has the desired effect.

  • After four hours, you’ll end up shelling out about 9500 Rupees for long hair.
  • While in short hair, it can cost about INR 6000 Rupees
  • And in medium hair, around 8000 Rupees

It’s worth it?

While you think about it, I will tell you how much it costs to perform keratin at home.

A good product to perform keratin keratin at home will cost you about 4000 Rupees.

Have long or short hair. If you have short hair, it may give you up to do the treatment again after three or four months.

If it is long, you may need all the product.Everything will then depend on the length of your hair.

And of your patience. Because what you cannot economize on is the time that you must invest to achieve the best results. You should have at least three hours to pass the iron in each of the small strands.

And also, it can be quite uncomfortable to pass the iron in the subsequent locks. And also, you must have a practically professional iron. Because for the keratin to penetrate and seal the hair cuticles, it must remain at around 200°C during the entire process.

In addition, you must also add the expense of a clarifying shampoo, which you will use at the beginning of the procedure to remove the residues of other products that may be in the hair.

This shampoo can cost you between 800 and 2000 Rupees, depending on the brand.

In conclusion:

  • Doing keratin in a salon can range between 5000 and 15000 Rupees, depending on the length of the hair.
  • Making keratin at home can cost around INR 4000, depending on the brand of keratin and clarifying shampoo you choose.

Also, if your hair is not very long, it can actually cost you 4000 Rupees, since the product can give you to do it again in three months.

I ask you again, is it worth paying to do keratin in a salon?

As a stylist, I will always say yes. Because we are handling products. Products that also, if you are not very knowledgeable, you run the risk of being put in a pig for a poke.

What I mean by this? Today you can find countless keratin offers on Amazon or similar sales platforms. But not all products are good. Not all are free of formaldehyde, a substance that can become carcinogenic.

In addition, your iron may not be the one to ensure the best results. And on the other hand, passing the iron also implies knowledge. Although most think that it is not so.

If you don’t slide the iron correctly, you can risk burning your hair and breaking the ends. As I always say, in the end, you are the one who decides. But if what you are looking for is a treatment that restores the health of your hair.

Nurturing them…

Giving them more shine…

Moistening them…

I am one of those who think that it is worth paying for a keratin treatment in the salon. Especially for those people who lose many hours a day using the iron to look perfectly straight.



What can make keratin more expensive is not a product. All the products that will be used are already included in the price. But if your ends are too split or broken , you may need an end trim, so the treatment looks better when it’s done.

A tip trim can cost you between 750 and 2000 Rupees. And if the professional advises you to trim the ends so that the keratin result is perfect, my advice is to listen to him.

I know these are hard times. And that every penny counts. But, I ask you a question. When you go to a restaurant and order a pizza, do you bring the mozzarella from home so that the pizza is cheaper?

With hair treatments in salons, the same thing happens. You cannot save if you want the professional to guarantee your work.

Now you are a happy girl with straight, silky and frizz-free hair.

But start preparing.

Because keratin is not eternal.

Since it does not change the internal structure of the hair.

But, you can always extend its effects if you know how to take care of it. Since you have spent a good amount of money on the treatment, better take care of it to extend its effects, don’t you think? 

Imagine that with some specific care you can manage to extend the effects of keratin for several months.

On the other hand, if you continue with your usual habits, you may have to reapply the treatment much faster.

That is why now I want to give you several tips to prolong the effects of the treatment on your hair.

  • Do not wash your hair for the first seventy-two hours

It doesn’t matter if your scalp itches.

Or if you feel that a thousand lice are running through your locks.

Don’t wash it.

Don’t get it wet.

Don’t swim.

Do not leave your house if it rains. At least, not without carrying an umbrella.

  • Do not tie your hair, or use hair clips or hair clips

Keratin is malleable even after the first twenty-four hours.

If you tie your hair or fasten it with buckles, the only thing you will achieve is leave marks in the locks.

  • Do not do physical activity or expose yourself to the sun

I’m not saying that you suspend physical activity forever, but at least for the first few days after applying the keratin.

Then, taking care of the hair from the sun seems obvious to me and also something very easy to do. Just wear a cap or scarf and you’re good to go.

  • Use sulfate-free shampoos

Sulfates are a chemical ingredient that most of the shampoos we use regularly have.

The only thing this ingredient does is accelerate the wear of keratin, so the ideal would be to avoid shampoos with sulfates whenever possible.

  • Do not use the iron and the hair dryer every day

Another fairly obvious issue that many people overlook. The heat from the hair tools slowly ruins the treatment.

Use the iron and the dryer as little as possible, and when you do try to use tools that allow heat control and protect your hair with a heat Protection .


You already know the price of doing keratin in a professional salon and the price of doing it in the comfort of your home.

Of course, each of the two options has its advantages and disadvantages, as we have seen.

The final decision will depend on you.

And now I would like to know about you, are you one of those who prefer to do treatments in the salon or do you prefer to do it at home?
