TAME + glossy: A Portland Keratin Treatment Salon

Exclusively Specializing in Keratin Treatments Only

1st time to TAME + glossy?
Here’s what’s in store for you!

Welcome! We want you to know that everyone is welcome and accepted at TAME + glossy. Please arrive a few minutes early to allow time to find street parking (free), and to fill out your hair history form.

You will be gladly greeted and shown around to familiarize yourself with the salon and the equipment. Wait until you see our custom-built ventilation system!

We will start with a consultation to find out what your hair goals and expectations of your treatment are. From there, we will head to the shampoo bowl where you will be laying completely horizontal! That’s right, chat a bit and get to know your stylist or go ahead and take a cat nap, you’ll be that comfortable! Next, we will head back to the chair where you will be provided an iPad, free to listen to music of your choice, browse (online shop) or Netflix and chill. Need to be working while your here? Bring your laptop and use our portable work stations. We promise not to tell your boss!

We offer complimentary beverages of your choice. AM appointment, enjoy a cup of coffee or seasonal tea. PM appointment, let us pour you a glass of wine! Wine served any time of day with no judgements of course.

Please note: We require payment in full to book your first appointment. Thereafter, you have become a part of the glossy gang and will pay at the time of your next appointment.

Pre-Treatment Preparation:

We recommend 7 days between coloring treatments and your keratin treatment. Bleaching should be at least 7 days prior to your keratin treatment. When doing vivid colors, please consult your stylist.

If you plan to cut a lot of length off your hair or have split ends, you’ll want to cut/trim before your treatment, no time restriction.

Don’t worry about washing your hair prior to your appointment. Your hair does not have to be clean as we start the process with a clarifying wash. If you have super tangly hair, you could save time by combing it out prior to your appointment. Please note: If your hair is matted and takes more than 30 minutes to comb out, additional charges will apply. ($100 per every additional hour).

Check all products you are currently using for Sodium Chloride AKA Salt. All of your hair products need to be free of Sodium Chloride/Salt as this will break down your keratin treatment.

Post Treatment:

No water contact, sweating, or products of any kind for 48 hours after your treatment. Your treatment is not done processing until after you have washed your hair.

Please be prepared for rain by wearing hooded clothing for the following 48hrs post treatment, as you never know what our weather will do! PS. If it’s raining and you do not wear a hood or have an umbrella, you’ll be leaving in a shower cap!

You are able to put your hair in a ponytail and/or use clips. This will not permanently crease your hair. In the unfortunate event that your treatment does get wet or you sweat, use a low heat blow dry to smooth out any creases. If that doesn’t do the trick, use a flat iron on low heat, being careful to not over-process the hair.

No Sodium Chloride or Salt contact for the remainder of your Keratin treatments life.

"SO THRILLED I found TAME + glossy for my Keratin Treatment! I moved here to Portland from L.A. about 6 months ago, and haven't been able to find any salons that do Keratin Treatment, which I used to get several times a year in LA --- until last week when I was referred to Katlyn and her shop by another stylist. Katlyn did an amazing job and her new location and space are PERFECT! Thanks so much TAME + glossy, see you soon!
