Brazilian Keratin Treatment
Step 1 - DILATOR
Start with cuticle opening. The ideal is to use a larger amount of dilating shampoo for better penetration of the active. For natural hair, wash 3 times.
For extremely resistant hair: Dry Wash - Apply the Step 1 Dilator to dry hair with the help of a brush across the root. Massage gently to length and let stand for 5 minutes. Then rinse thoroughly and wash for two or three more times, as needed.
For colored and discolored hair: We recommend washing it normally with the Step 1 dilator only 2 times. It is not necessary to leave pause time. Do not rub too much the scalp to prevent post-smoothing oil.
Check the elasticity of the wires: Take the Elasticity Test: If at the first application of the Step 1 Dilator you notice that the hair is elastic and sensitive, apply the Gold Xpress Mask to stabilize the PH of the fiber, allowing it to act for 10 minutes. Then rinse the mask and wash for once more with the Dilator Step 1.
STEP 2 - IMPORTANT BEFORE USING:
Take the allergy test - Perform the universal allergy test by applying a small amount to the forearm and nape of the neck, and wait a 10 minute time, if the result is positive, discontinue use.
Shake the product well
Dry 50% of the threads, with dryer, leaving still moist.
Divide the hair in half or as you prefer. Separate into medium locks and apply with brush and fine comb. Deposit a large amount at the root of the wires and may touch the scalp. Then with fine comb pull for length and tips thoroughly dampening all wires.
Tip: For dryer or impermeable hair, pass the comb several times in the same place.
On the last wick leave the threads well aligned and wait 30 minutes.
Tips for greater absorption: For more resistant, dry and impermeable hair or in colder regions, use a thermal cap during the pause time to increase the absorption of the active. You can also wrap your hair with plastic film.
During the break, do not comb.
Wash thoroughly only with water to remove the product completely.
Do not leave any residue on the wires.
Just dry to remove the excess of water and begin brushing. The brushing should be well polished performed with great attention, as it is at this point that the capillary realignment process begins. Exert a tensile force to completely flatten and achieve the sheen in the wires as if they were already planked.
The flat ironing technique for this procedure is the most important step. We must properly analyze the structure of the yarn to achieve the perfect straightening.
Colored and discolored hair: 410 F (200ºC)
Natural and resistant hair: 450 F (230ºC)
Because it is a straightening without formal and derivatives, the tannin totally depends on the sealing of the board so that it can activate all its properties within the fiber. The wicks should be thin and very well flat ironed.
Number of flat ironing:
Fine and sensitive hair: 10 to 15 times each wick
Curly and resistant hair: 20 to 30 times each wick
Always flat iron more the root and less the tips.
Slowly draw the same spot several times so that there is a concentration of temperature at the root of the wires. The greater the activation of the heat the greater the straightening results.
