Features and Benefits

Q. What kind of result will I get from the Smooth Infusion™ Professional Smoothing Treatment?
A. After the treatment, hair is smooth, frizz-free and infused with shine, natural body and movement. The result is sleek, controllable hair that stays smooth all day, everyday – with minimal styling effort. You can expect the result to last for up to two months – even in high humidity.

 

Q. What makes Smooth Infusion™ Professional Smoothing Treatment the first choice over alternative Keratin treatments on the market?
A. Our innovative smoothing formula is up to 83% naturally derived and less damaging to hair than traditional keratin treatments or straighteners. Also it is not formulated with the chemicals, such as formaldehyde, ammonium thioglycolate and sodium hydroxide, found in traditional straighteners. Instead we use tourmaline, mineral sulfites and a corn derived ingredient / polylysine, which are naturally derived and help deliver smooth results lasting up to 2 months.

 

Q. What are the active ingredients in the Smooth Infusion™ Professional Smoothing Treatment that makes it work so well?
A. The secret behind the smoothing power of Smooth Infusion™ Professional Smoothing Treatment is a patent-pending formula with Tourmaline which, loosens the curl. Mineral sulfites then help realign hair’s bonds to smooth hair, while corn and a naturally derived enzyme help lock the smooth style in place.

Q. How long can I expect the service take in the salon?
A. The application is approximately 1 ½ to 2 hours, depending on the length and thickness of the hair.
