- Consultation: client consultation and completion of client analysis form.
Your stylist will walk you through a client analysis form, where aspects such as your hair porosity, texture and desired outcome will be confirmed. If you have virgin, grey or box-dyed hair, your stylist might prepare your hair for the treatment with peroxide, based off your answers from the analysis.
- Clarifying Shampoo: removes all fats and oils from the hair and scalp before the treatment.
The clarifying shampoo thoroughly prepares and cleanses all dirt, built up product and other fats and oils from the hair and scalp. This step is done to ensure that the treatment can penetrate the hair structure.
- Rough dry: until the hair is 100% dry.
As the treatment is water-soluble, it is important that the hair is 100% dry before the treatment is applied.
- Treatment application: after sectioning off your hair, your stylist will carefully apply the treatment, taking care that each strand is saturated with the treatment. The result is a ‘wet’ gel-look.
- Waiting period: after the treatment is applied, your stylist will leave the hair to dry naturally for a minimum of 30 minutes.
- Heat application: this is the most important step of the treatment, as it “locks in” the keratin by sealing your hair’s cuticle. Your stylist will activate the treatment by ironing thin sections of your hair, ensuring every strand is activated. The strokes and heat used will depend upon your hair porosity, texture and your desired result.
- Basin Booster Treatment: we recommend washing the treatment off after the activation to show the client the real results you achieve by only rough drying the hair. Your stylist will also identify the ideal homecare for your hair wants and needs.
You have the option to leave the treatment on for an additional two to three days, although the treatment can be rinsed off directly after the activation
