CAREFULLY read all instructions & warning prior to using the product. In order to discern undesired effects and compatibility issues. The application process may take 90-150 minutes depending on hair length and skills, it requires the help of another person, and you can't do it on your own. During the application the treatment when heated releases fume that may irritate your eyes & breathing. Just like any other product please perform a sample test prior to fully applying the product on the hair. Wear gloves and work in a well ventilated area.
*Before you start: you will need the following: Cape, bowl, gloves, brush, blow drier, flat iron capable of 450F, large hair clips, 1-2 fine tooth combs (you need it to spread the product evenly), Easy comb and/or heat resistance comb (optional).
1. Wash the hair well with clarifying shampoo; this will enable the opening of the cuticles. Rinse well and blow dry, brush the hair with medium heat until it is completely dry. Comb and separate hair into 3 sections: Left, Right and Back.
Notes: Don’t use conditioner. Any oils or conditioner left on the hair may affect the treatment performance and penetration. The Clarifying shampoo optimizes the treatment. You will notice that it is hard to comb and that is normal when using clarifying shampoo.
2.Wear gloves and start applying the treatment product from the bottom of the Back section , about 1(one) centimeter from the root then use a fine comb spreading the product evenly to the tips of the hair and verify that the hair is evenly saturated. Leave solution on the hair for 30 minutes.
Notes: It is extremely Important that the entire hair is completely covered with the solution and that the solution is evenly distributed throughout the hair before proceeding to the next step. Comb through - using the fine toothed comb - a very little bit should push in front of comb. However the hair should not be over saturated. Excess solution should be combed out of the hair and removed.
3. Blow-dry the hair 100% (yes while the product is on the hair) using medium heat. You may use a round brush to make it easier for the next step of flat ironing. Straight detangled hair makes it better and easier to work with. Using a flat iron at 420-450°F (it’s about 210-232°C) to straighten the hair in combination with a Heat resistance comb. Starting at the nape, move the iron slowly from the scalp to hairs' ends. Assuring the ends are smooth and straight. Go over the same section several times until there is almost no fume (it may take 7-12 times depending on the hair type, condition and part of head it is). Do not overdo since you can burn the hair.
4. Before you wash your hair again please wait from 3 hours to overnight. Anyone who desires to stay with treatment for 3 days may do so; there is no harm to the hair, then wash the hair with Sulfate free shampoo and conditioner.
What’s next, What to do, what to expect? Now that you treated the hair, the hair should be straight and possibly feel dry or a little oily depending on your hair condition and treatment type used. It is recommended to use a light flat iron touch (360F) over your hair (once a day) in the first few days as the hair is “getting used to” being straight and getting ready for the change. Avoid strong clips and pony tails bands until you have washed your hair again.

Troubleshooting and tips for success: Typically, using the application accurately (i.e. following the manufacturer's instructions) and buying the correct treatment for your hair type (based on the chart above), will lead to successful results similar to continuous experience of others all around the world. The detailed instructions provided with the product are comprehensive and include links to an additional instructional video.
VERY IMPORTANT: One of the reasons that people don't achieve desired results from the treatment was because the flat iron being used was not able to reach and maintain a temperature of 450F. Please make sure the flat iron you are using is capable of reaching 450F and also consistently maintaining more or less that temperature. The temperature should be indicated on the iron switch or thermostat itself or the box it came in.
The treatment may be repeated as necessary to achieve desired results.
