IMPORTANT TIPS FOR A SAFE RESULT:

2 • Do not skip any steps in the process.
3 • Wear gloves throughout the product application process.
4 • Do the wick test first before applying the product to ensure that the hair can receive and check the application time.
5 • Do not use Anti-dandruff Shampoo for at least 3 days before.
Attention: after defining your hair type and the appropriate time to carry out the desired process, correctly follow the application steps never exceeding the time indicated on the packaging, otherwise you will not get the desired result. Start counting the time from the moment the product application starts.
STEP 1: STARTING APPLICATION
A) Before starting the process, spread the Keratin Hair Food Salon Line on the forehead, ears and all over the scalp, especially in the hair separation lines, to avoid contact of the Cream with the skin.
B) With the hair untangled, divide it into four parts with non-metallic fasteners. If you are a professional hairdresser and have experience in the relaxation process, you can divide the hair into more than 4 parts, according to your preference.
C) With a fine tooth comb start the application at the nape, in the 1st first quadrant, distributing the product in thin strands from the root to the middle of the hair, avoiding touching the scalp. Keeping a distance of 0.5 cm from the root. The application of the relaxing cream on the root should be done gently with the comb, in order to ensure a natural effect. Do not pull the root.
D) After applying the product on all the locks of the first quadrant, proceed to the next quadrants repeating the same application process.
E) When finishing the application, go back to the 1st quadrant and using a medium toothed comb, apply the product from the length to the ends.
F) Continue the procedure in all quadrants until all hair has received the product. Leave the product according to the time indicated in your wick test.
ATTENTION: If your time is running out and you have not finished applying the cream in all quadrants, go back to the 1st quadrant and rinse. Otherwise, the hair may be straight.
IMPORTANT: After applying the cream do not fasten with clips. Leave the strands loose, as the clips mark and break and the strands.
If you have doubts about which type of comb to use, always use the one with wider teeth. If you exceed the time indicated in your hair test for your hair type, you may not get the desired result. Do not pass the comb with too much force, as it may leave your strands smooth or brittle. This procedure does not replace an afro permanent.
STEP 2: RINSE NEUTRALIZATION
A) Rinse the hair thoroughly with warm water or at room temperature. Make sure that all relaxation has been removed from all applied areas. Avoid the eye area while rinsing. Rinse three (3) times following the same APPLICATION process lasting three (3) to four (4) minutes per part, making sure that the relaxation has left.
B) The Neutralizing Shampoo Salon Line with color indicator is indispensable for the total removal of residues, it will also alert you of the place where the relaxation has not been completely removed. Check the color of the shampoo to find out where product residues are still in the hair. Wash your hair until the foam is completely white. Then rinse well and proceed to STEP 3.
STEP 3: CONDITIONING AND FINISHING
After relaxation, neutralization and rinsing are completed correctly, apply a Salon Line Conditioner of your choice.
Evenly distribute the product throughout the hair. Let it act for (5) minutes. Rinse well with warm water, dry with a towel and finish as desired.
Touch-up: It will be necessary to repeat the process as the hair grows. It is recommended that a new application take place in 90 days (time necessary for the growth of at least 3 cm from the root). When performing the touch-up, apply the product only to the area of new hair, that is, growth. Without taking the product to the length and ends. Follow the application steps.
