Many people want options for maintaining their hair without the chemicals. A Smoothout Treatment is an option that fits this requirement. The natural next question is, what is a Smoothout Treatment?
A Smoothout Treatment is a smoothing system to improve hair texture, transforming rough, frizzy hair texture to smooth, sleek hair with a shiny finish without the use of formaldehyde. Since a Smoothout Treatment is a non-chemical, the natural hair can revert back to its original texture. Hair will be more manageable, meaning you will be able to wash, blow-dry, and style the hair. Continued work is involved for the client when this treatment is performed. The hair will not stay straight permanently.
A Smoothout Treatment is for all hair textures and all etnicities. If your hair is chemically damaged, a Smoothout Treatment will work for you. If you are currently transitioning from a relaxer to natural hair, Smoothout Treatment will work for you. Even if you want to correct a cowlick, or want the hair to part to the other side, a Smoothout Treatment can be the remedy.
Let get a little more in depth about a Smoothout Treatment.
Before any service is performed, a consultation is given. The stylist will examine the hair, ask questions about your hair history, and suggest the treatment that best suits the client needs. Your hair is shampooed twice, toweled dry, and sprayed with leave-in spray. Your hair is parted into 4-6 sections. The Smoothout Treatment is then applied to the hair from the scalp to the ends and the product is combed through. Once the section has been completed, the client is placed under the steamer for 45-60 minutes. The hair then gets blow-dryed and flat ironed.
With the humidity a Smoothout Treatment can revert the hair to its natural texture. You can re-flat iron the hair. Again, maintenance is involved with a Smoothout. When re-flat ironing. its recommended that the sections are no more then ¼” and use heat protection.
