I've been providing keratin treatment services to my clients for years. Keratin treatments have a controversial history, as many include formaldehyde as a primary ingredient (or some form of formaldehyde that, when exposed to heat, turns into formaldehyde). Which is unsafe for clients, and frankly, suuuuuuuuper unsafe for me. I'm always in search of the most effective keratin product for client which is also healthy for everyone involved. Which brings me to...
Chi’s Enviro American Smoothing
As I am already a huge fan of the Chi flat iron and Silk Infusion products, I knew the Farouk name could be trusted. This smoothing system infuses their unique formula of amino acids, proteins, silk, and pearl into the hair’s cuticle; when the product is bonded to the hair using a flat iron, it temporarily realigns of the cysteine proteins within the hair, making it softer, silkier, and more manageable! Here’s a bit more information about the product/service:
It eliminates up to 95% of frizz while making curly hair more manageable.
It instantly adds amazing shine, silkiness and condition to the hair. The system safely smooths frizzy, curly hair into beautiful, soft and silky hair.
Results typically lasts up to 4 months depending on hair type and client’s maintenance.
It is free from formaldehyde and formaldehyde-releasing chemicals!
Unlike other salon services, the more often hair is treated, the healthier it becomes. With each treatment, the absorption of amino acids, proteins, silk and pearl makes the hair regenerate natural proteins, thereby helping the hair repel humidity and creating smoother, silkier, straighter, and shiner hair that will blow-dry faster and easier.
The treatment can be repeated as early as every 4-6 weeks.
It can also be performed on chemically treated, previously-relaxed hair.
This can be performed as a stand-alone service, or direct conjunction with a color service.
This product was both created and manufactured here in the U.S.
Thankfully there are only a couple of maintenance items when caring for your hair when using the Chi Enviro American Smoothing Treatment:
This service may add on up to 90 minutes to your overall appointment time.
The hair cannot be shampooed for a minimum of 48 hours after the service is performed.
If the hair gets wet before that time, immediately blow dry and flat iron.
Do not use ponytail bands, clips, headbands, or anything that would put a bend in the hair for 7 days after treatment.
Though this treatment is not designed as a straightening service, it will likely relax any current curl pattern you have.
