Review: Cezanne Perfect Finish Keratin Smoothing Treatment

I don't have very curly hair, but it is thick, coarse, and frizzes out when I air-dry. I'm low maintenance and I don't want to spend a lot of time trying to get my hair right and if this new Keratin treatment will relax my hair and make it softer, smoother, healthier - all the more for it!

Cezanne Perfect Finish Keratin Smoothing Treatment is Formaldehyde Free

Note: I receive the treatment for the purpose of this review. Any personal views expressed are always 100% my own.

I was invited to the Butterfly Studio Salon ( to experience this new Keratin treatment called the Cezanne Perfect Finish Keratin Smoothing Treatment.

Butterfly Studio Salon is an great chic salon that takes care of its customers, and even offers drinks while you get your hair done.

My stylist Nicole Descoteaux was great and very informative about the treatment and did an amazing job!

The full treatment (shampoo, semi-dry, apply treatment, wait 30 min, rinse, blow dry, flat iron) probably took around 2 hours total, however I have long thick hair, so timing can vary. Cost: $350 depending on the length of your hair

The result - shiny straight hair!

Best part is you can go home and wash your hair that day if you like, no need to wait 24 hrs or longer. I didn't wash it until the next day but some will not be able to wait as the treatment does leave your hair slightly tacky.

Key attributes of Cezanne Perfect Finish are:
  1. It is 100% formaldehyde-free. Instead of formaldehyde, the formula uses a proprietary blend of keratin, silk protein, botanical extracts and vitamins that actually leaves hair healthier and more manageable than before the treatment.
  2. Does not include ANY harmful chemicals and does not have a negative effect on any hair types - even hair that has been treated with a relaxer, colored, bleached, highlighted or damaged
  3. Will last for 3+ months – as long as or longer than any formaldehyde systems on the market – minus the dangerous chemicals.
  4. Has no “down time” after treatment. Hair can be washed or colored immediately, and unlike other smoothing systems, hair can also be curled with a curling iron.
  5. Cezanne gradually washes away over time which prevents damage and permanent change to hair texture, plus it will leave no demarcation in your hair!
  6. My personal added benefit from my own past hair experiences: the treatment does NOT cause your eyes to burn or make you sneeze like crazy from the fumes. Huge plus for me as I've had both happen with other Keratin treatments.

Cezanne Perfect Finish Keratin Treatment Home Products

For upkeep and to keep your hair looking awesome, Cezanne also has a line of at-home products to help keep the treatment fresh that you can purchase online or at the salon. It's important to use sulfate free hair care products so it doesn't strip the Keratin treatment and make it last longer!

The real test was when I had to do my hair myself. After washing and air-drying, my hair wasn't stick straight but it definitely was less frizzy and more smoother and manageable than before the treatment. Quick pass with a flat iron and it was back to shiny straight hair!
