This is a treatment that is used to straighten and tame hair for a period of 3 months. In the past formaldehyde was used in the solution but was taken out in Europe to fears of the effects on hairdressers who used it a lot.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Hair is washed and a solution is painted on to hair. This can result in temporary sting of the eyes. The solution is sealed into the hair using a GHD or flat irons. It may be left on in the saloon for an hour or so or left on the hair for up to 3 days depending on the brand.
Straight coiffured hair. Hair is easily maintained, even if some blow drying is required to achieve a blow dried look, overall time on hairs is decimated.
Hair is left is very strong and conditioned post treatment.
You need to use a special salt free shampoo and conditioner as traditional salt based shampoos will wash the treatment from the hair.
In some treatments there is as long as a 3 day wait before you can wash the solution out of the hair.
Hair is lightened by a shade during the treatment.
