STEP-BY-STEP

STEP 1: SHAMPOO

* Thoroughly shampoo hair with an anti-residue shampoo; twice for chemically treated hair; three times for virgin or very coarse hair.




STEP 2: BLOW DRY

* Blow dry hair until it is 100% dry. High heat can be used for this step.


STEP 3: HOW TO APPLY

* Section the hair into four parts. (Make sure that the hair is completely dry) * Shake the bottle well and pour 2 to 3 ounces of the Papaya or White Chocolate Treatment into a bowl. * Put gloves on. * Apply product to hair with a brush, just as you would apply color. * Make sure that the Keratin is evenly distributed through the hair, apply more if necessary. Using a fine tooth comb, remove excess. * Leave product on hair for 10 minutes before moving on to step 4.

 

STEP 4: BLOW DRY

* At this point, both the stylist and the client should put on a mask. * Using MEDIUM heat and a vent brush, blow dry the hair until it is 100% dry.

 

STEP 5: FLAT IRON: A 450° F Flat Iron MUST be used.

* Section the hair into four parts. * Beginning at the nape, using ½" sections, pass the iron from ½" away from the scalp to the ends. Go over each section 5 to 7 times, until you see that the hair is shiny and smooth. * Repeat this process until the 450° F Flat Iron has been used on the whole head.

 

STEP 6: AFTER CARE

* Do not wash the hair for 3 days (a full 72 hours) and avoid getting it wet. If the hair does get wet, blow dry it immediately and go over with a flat iron if possible. * Do not put the hair behind the ears or use any pony tail holders, barrettes or head bands.

 

STEP 7: MAINTANENCE TIPS TO HELP PROLONG RESULTS

* Use Bottanica sulfate and sodium chloride free Silk Shampoo and Silk Conditioner. * Refrain from washing your hair everyday. The natural oils in your hair will help to hold the treatment longer. * If you swim in the ocean or a chlorinated pool, rinse hair with clear water to remove the salt or chlorine as soon as possible. Bottanica is the most modern system that will transform your hair leaving your hair soft, shiny and straight like you always imagined!
