HOW-TO STEPS

    Bio Ionic® ReTeXpress Uses Breakthrough Ion Technology &  Advanced Application Techniques to Deliver Better Results, Faster

    As profitable as permanent retexturizing is, the fact is that the time it takes to achieve straightened perfection can not only wear on a stylist physically and emotionally, but also consume a huge chunk of time that could be used to attend to other clients. Additionally, first-time retex clients are often time one-time retex clients because they have a hard time stomaching the idea of sitting in a salon for what seems like an eternity again to keep their tresses’ silky-straight condition.

    Now, Bio Ionic®, the first to harness the power of natural negative ion technology into a permanent retexturizing process, is again revolutionizing this salon process by introducing ReTeXpress™, a breakthrough permanent retexturizing process that delivers silky-straight, ultra-shiny, healthier hair, 50 percent faster than any other professional system currently available.

    Apply Bio Ionic Retexturizing Cream #1 to hair for processing. Make sure your sections are not bigger than ¼ inch thick. The application should take you no longer than 10 minutes from start to finish (aim to do it in 6 minutes).

    Virgin hair
    From crown to nape, ¼ inch from scalp to ends. Process for 45 minutes at the most for extremely resistant hair. The average processing time is 25 minutes. To speed up the process, you might use a plastic cap. For very resistant hair, place client under the dryer with a plastic cap, checking every 5 minutes until process is completed. (20-45 min)

    Single process
    From crown to nape, ¼ inch from scalp to mid shaft, apply to the ends 10 minutes after finishing your application, let it process for 5 more minutes. (15-30 min)

    Multi-chemical process hair
    At the back of head, section hair from ear to ear, pin up and start your application ¼ inch away from scalp to mid shaft, proceed to crown with the same application, apply product to the ends at shampoo bowl, process for 1 minute maximum. (3-15 min)

    Touch-up
    Follow the above techniques, from ¼ inch away from scalp to line of demarcation.

Once hair is about 30% dry, use a round brush to finish your blow dry. Note that if you are dealing with extremely resistant hair, you might want to use the round brush after drying hair 50%. Use sections and start from the nape of the head up. (15 – 20 min)
