What if Wednesday: Smoothing Treatment Alternatives

What if you want a smoothing treatment to tame your curls, control frizz and make your hair more manageable, but want to avoid using chemicals that change the structure of your hair or having to wait months to grow out the application? Trust a professional hair stylist to help with that!   There are alternatives to relaxers and thermal reconditioning (also known as Japanese straightening). And we’re not talking about Brazilian straightening or Keratin therapies, which contain varying amounts of formaldehyde, a toxic ingredient that is known to cause cancer and poses a risk to everyone’s health.

At Karline’s Salon, we offer two non-toxic smoothing treatment alternatives: the Agave Smoothing Treatment and the Design Essentials Strengthening Therapy System. Here’s an overview of both:

The Agave Smoothing Treatment

This treatment is formulated instead with blue agave plant extracts, the sugars from the plant help hydrate hair.

[It ]Instantly & safely smoothes-out up to 100% frizz and volume, and reduces curl retention by 80%. There’s NO FORMALDEHYDE or Formaldehyde derivatives, making it one of the safest salon treatments available.

With an exclusive Amino Acid Complex called Carbo-C, Agave Smoothing gently alters the hair’s disulphide bonds, reforming them to make the hair sleek & smooth. Agave plant sugars help hydrate & condition.

Hair coloring can be done the same day, but only after an Agave Smoothing Treatment. What’s more, Agave Smoothing Treatment can be used over previously chemically straightened hair such as Keratin Treatments, Thio based straighteners and Sodium Hydroxide Relaxers.

The Design Essentials Strengthening Therapy System is a safe and effective amino-acid infused thermal reconditioning systems.

The Design Essentials Strengthening Therapy System strengthens the hair while straightening, stretching and smoothing naturally curly, frizzy, multi-textured, transitioning and chemically treated hair.

The Design Essentials Strengthening Therapy System is an Amino-Acid based system, using the active Cysteine Amino Acid.  It does not contain Formaldehyde nor any Formaldehyde derivatives. It does not emit harmful gasses as seen with Formaldehyde based straightening systems.

The Design Essentials Strengthening Therapy System is not a chemical. It is a protein based treatment that does not contain any harsh or permanent chemicals. Unlike chemical based products, the Strengthening Therapy System does not break nor rearrange the bonds. In contrast, it fills the hair fiber with micro-fine amino acids, resulting in the stretching or elongation of the hair strand, while providing maximum strengthening to the hair.

The Design Essentials Strengthening Therapy System utilizes the Thermal Reconditioning Process to elongate, straighten, strengthen and transform hair into a stronger, healthier, more manageable state that lasts up to 12 weeks.

Here’s a short video that describes why we like this system, especially for clients transitioning to natural hair.

When you are “hair ready” for a smoothing treatment, ask your Karline’s Salon stylist about the K-Natural package, which includes two visits, the Design Essentials Strengthening Therapy System application, and products for at-home maintenance – all for a special price.
