This system will improve the hair’s feel, softness and shine while providing a drastic improvement in hair manageability. Benefits include the time saved each day on not having to fight to dry, wavy or curly hair with a blow dryer and brush. Hair that has been straightened by thermal reconditioning is much quicker to dry. It requires very little attention out of the shower, giving you a professional look with minimal effort. You are also saved from the hassle of fighting frizz from humidity or physical activity.
Treated hair will be permanently straight. Only the new growth will need to be treated (in about 4 to 8 months, depending on growth rate) after the initial service. This system does not contain formaldehyde, -aldehyde or any other formaldehyde releaser. It restructures the hair with “thio” (Ammonium Thioglycolate) which has been safely used in perms for many decades because it is much milder on the hair than lye (Sodium Hydroxide or any equivalent).
A combination of a Thio-based relaxer on the internal structures of the hair along with high levels of Collagen Proteins, Natural Oils, and other proven hair conditioning ingredients on the exterior of the hair all help promote stronger bond to restructure the hair properly, and keeps the hair moisturized and looking vibrant. All of which amounts to incomparably beautiful results: Less Damage, Healthier, Natural-looking, Frizz-free, STRAIGHT, SHINY, SILKY, BEAUTIFUL HAIR.
This is a 4 hour service depending on length and amount of hair at $400.
