    Step 1 – Pre-Treatment Shampoo
    Cleanse hair with GLOSS Moderne Pre-Treatment Shampoo to remove all residue and prepare hair for treatment. Repeat as needed until hair is thoroughly clean. (Shampoo a minimum of 2-3 times for best results).

    Step 2 – Towel Dry
    Towel blot hair very well. Hair should be damp.

    Step 3 – Section the Hair
    Divide the hair into four sections.
     
    Step 4 – Apply Gloss Lisse
    With 32 oz. bottles, use approximately 6 pumps for shoulder length hair and adjust quantity accordingly depending on hair length and texture. Apply GLOSS Lisse with a tint brush as you would apply color, in 1-inch sections starting at the nape of the neck. Apply 1-inch off the scalp. Distribute product evenly, saturating and combing each section.

    Step 5 – Activate Gloss Lisse for 20 Minutes
    Comb through hair using a fine tooth comb, pulling solution from root to end until product is thoroughly distributed and hair is saturated. After combing, allow Gloss Lisse to process for 20 minutes. No further combing is necessary, and no heat should be applied.

    Step 8 – Towel Dry the Hair and Apply GLOSS Moderne High-Gloss Serum
    Apply a good quantity (dime to quarter-sized amount) of the GLOSS Moderne High Gloss Serum. Comb and distribute through hair evenly.

    Step 9 – Dry the Hair
    Blow-dry the hair with good tension using a round or paddle brush until 100% dry. Must perform a proper blow-dry for best results. (Do NOT simply rough dry as you must use proper tension for maximum results.)

    Step 10 – Flat Iron the Hair
    Flat iron the hair in 1-inch sections with a professional flat iron set between 380° and 400°. Pass the flat iron over each section 5-9 times depending on the desired result. (5 times to remove frizz and maintain curl, 7 times for most clients, or 9 times for maximum results.) Trim hair by “dusting” ends. (Optional but recommended.)

    Clients can wear GLOSS Lisse for up to six weeks, and don’t have to put their lives on hold. While other keratin treatments require clients to wait three days before washing, clients who choose the GLOSS Lisse treatment are free to wash their hair, swim and workout immediately after the service.
