What's in the kit?
The kit contains:
- 100ml keratin treatment
- 30ml clarifying shampoo
- application brush
- two hair clips
The advantages of the kit are numerous: first of all, look at the value. How can you go wrong at the price? In addition, you won't need to use your straighteners as much in the future, which will protect your hair. Once straightened, your hair will be resistant to humidity, so your hair will stay straight and beautiful even if you have to dash through the rain to catch the bus! Another advantage is that this kit actually leaves your hair stronger after you've used it. It contains proteins that restore the connective bonds in your hair, and leaves it stronger and in better condition than it was before you used it.
How do I use the kit, is it difficult?
Actually, the kit is quite simple to use.
Firstly, you need to shampoo your hair twice with clarifying shampoo, rinse well and towel dry.
- Blow dry the hair on medium heat until completely dry
- Comb hair
- Section hair, and comb individual sections
- Apply the keratin treatment section by section, staying about one inch (2.5cm) from the roots
- After 30-40 minutes, blow dry hair on medium heat until hair is completely dry.
- Iron the hair completely flat, twice on each section.
- Don't wash your hair for 72 hours or tie up your hair for 48 hours. If your hair get wet before this time, iron the section with your hair irons again.
