    Cleanse the client’s hair with Keratherapy Clean Start Pre-Treatment Shampoo to remove impurities and open the cuticle. Rinse and repeat, then rinse thoroughly.

    Using a fine-tooth comb, remove excess solution by combing the hair from roots to ends away from the face. Continue this process over the entire head to ensure the product is evenly distributed. For thick, resistant hair, cover with a plastic cap and place under a medium heat hood dryer for 10 to 15 minutes before blow-drying. This helps to ensure better penetration of the renewal formula.

    Blow-dry the hair straight with medium heat and a Keratherapy Square Ceramic Brush or Keratherapy Vent Brush until the hair is completely dry. Prior to flat ironing the hair, it is extremely important to choose the appropriate heat setting.
