Critical for straightening the hair is keeping the flat iron closed
maintaining a tight tension and the right temperature throughout.
While the customer is still in your salon repeat the flat iron process if you missed a curl or a puffy section.
If a correction is needed on another day re-apply OXO and perform the treatment (only on the sections which need correction).
Re-applying OXO performing a correction has no danger, however, it is not recommended to straighten the hair more than 3 times in one year.
1. Come to the salon with their hair washed (only shampoo, no conditioner) and dried naturally.
2. Do not color or bleach the hair before the treatment.
3. Determine the hair type to determine the timing for the heating process and use of the flat iron.
Iron each section separately and slowly with a constantly closed iron.This allows the heat to penetrate the hair.
Alwaysbe sure to insert the thin, neatly combed rows into the iron while it is pulled tight and neatly combed. to work in thin combed rows.
If the row is loose or tangled, stop and re-comb the hair.
If there is no tension and the hair “dances” in the iron, the hair will not straighten. Repeat until achieving maximum shine and full closure of the cortex. (We call this iron movement “cooking” and not “milking” of the hair.
If the hair stylist or the customer is concerned, we recommend doing a test row before deciding to proceed.
Hair color lightens up to two times after the treatment.
Any brand of color can be used.
Due to the reaction between the amino acids and the heat of the iron, white hair might take on a yellow hue. White hair will straighten completely, but it might take quite a while before the yellowing fades.
PLEASE work according to our white hair instruction guide
Lightened Blonde Hair
