Wash hair 2 or 3 times with our DEEP CLEANING (Clarifying) SHAMPOO (STEP 1) to remove residues from the scalp and to open the cuticles of the hair for better absorption of our KERATIN TREATMENT (STEP 2).
Then blow dry to about 80% to 90% and untangle it with a comb. The drier the hair the better it absorbs the keratin treatment.
Separate hair in 2 or 4 sections, tying each section to facilitate the application of our KERATIN TREATMENT (STEP 2).
Pour about 1 to 2 ounces of our KERATIN TREATMENT (STEP 2) in a bowl. To minimize waste and for better absorption we suggest the application of our KERATIN TREATMENT (STEP 2) by hand or brush. Better to wear gloves or mask during the application process.
Start from the nape upwards. Apply from the root to the tip of the hair, making sure that every strand receives treatment. When a portion of hair is wet enough with our KERATIN TREATMENT (STEP 2), spread it more evenly with a fine-toothed comb. DO NOT OVERSATURATE.
Repeat the process on the remaining untreated hair. When finished, wait about 15 minutes, then blow dry it thoroughly to about 90%. Do not brush hair while blow drying. Then, untangle it with a comb and split hair in four sections to begin the straightening process.
Sealing the Keratin and Straightening the Hair
Start from the nape, using a professional-quality straightening iron to small portions of hair, about 4 to 5 times from roots to middle, and then 4 to 5 times from roots to ends. For optimum results, straightening iron temperature should be about 400°F / 200°C. Note: If hair is too damaged and porous, please use lower temperature. This process will reduce volume, remove frizz, and will straighten the hair. After this process is done, wait 40 minutes before applying our POST-TREATMENT MASK (STEP 3).
Forty minutes after finishing the keratin sealing and straightening process, rinse hair with warm water. No shampoo, please. Take excess water by hand, and apply our POST-TREATMENT MASK (STEP 3) by hand, at the wash sink. There is no need to go to the chair for this process. Comb hair to spread mask evenly to entire hair. Wait about 10 minutes, then rinse.
FINISHING THE TREATMENT
Blow dry and brush hair thoroughly. If client wants, the hair can be flat ironed again. For additional shine, split ends protection, and a delicious fragrance, top it off with our SERUM OIL. This is the end of the treatment, and hair is nicely washed and clean from residues.
