Meet Annie! I have doing her hair for years and have had to WORK to style her hair smooth. With her naturally curly, frizzy hair, heat-styling is a MUST if "smooth" is the goal!
Frizz Control was a B*TCH!... until now!
Fortunately, there is a solution with the continuously progressive technologies of Keratin Smoothing Systems. I've tried many in the past and while I've had good and great results, the processing solution for many of these treatments, despite them being Formaldehyde-free products, have harsh, seemingly harmful odors during processing. Just recently, I decided to try the Peter Coppola Keratin Smoothing System which is a Aldehyde-free & Formaldehyde-free Keratin Treatment. This system contains a low pH mechanism to soften and smooth the hair without the concern of harmful chemicals. It is infused with vital Keratin amino acids and damage-reversing Ceramides.
The processing time took approximately 2 hours, there was zero odor during processing, and I'd say the results were pretty impressive! The cost for this in-salon treatment starts at $175+ (or $125+ if bundled with color service), depending on how much hair you have, and the results last 3+months! This treatment is maintenance-free except for the use of sulfate-free, sodium chloride-free shampoo and conditioner which range from $8-$20 per bottle. Consultations are free of course, so whenever you're ready to stop fighting the frizz give me jingle and we'll make something happen! -Kristy Walters
Tape In Extensions are legit!
Instant gratification Ladies! Each application last for 4-6 weeks and hair wefts can be reused 3 or more times. This tape-in technique, is unlike any other method of extensions out there, adding length and thickness to almost any hair type without the damage!
There are 4 natural colors, ranging from Dark Brown to Blonde for easy matching or contrasting. Fashion colors are also available at an additional charge. The installation is astonishingly quick, painless and the results are seamless, and so natural looking. The medical grade adhesive is designed for hair, so with proper care, tape won’t weaken until you're ready to have them removed by your Stylist.
This method does not allow for individual strand breakage as many other methods of extensions typically do. No messy glue or clumsy, uncomfortable clips necessary.
At home care is easy too. A sulfate-free shampoo is necessary to gently cleanse the scalp without scrubbing, followed up by a sulfate-free conditioner on the mid-shaft to ends. Wash your hair in one direction. Avoid washing your hair upside down. Scrunching up your hair or rubbing it harshly will cause tangling!
After rinsing, gently wring out the excess water. For extra smooth result, add a leave-in conditioner or serum mid-shaft to tips. Gently comb through any tangles or use a loop brush specifically for extensions, If possible let them air dry, or if you need a blow dry, apply a heat protectant first and be careful not to heat up the bond/tape strip as it can weaken it and cause sliding.
I recommend sleeping with your hair in one or two braids to prevent excessive tangling.
This service takes approximately 60 minutes. The cost of this service is as follows:
$165 per "bundle" includes materials and labor
thin hair averages............1-2 bundles
medium hair averages....3-4 bundles
thick hair averages......... 5+ bundles
Reapplications.... $80 for each bundle, which includes re-taping, and residue removal
Reapplication recommended every 4-6 weeks, or with every other color retouch service. A partial color retouch can still be done as usual, around your extensions to prevent damage to the bond.
