In this article we will explain in detail how to perform a hair straightening with a keratin treatment.
This is a technical article and is therefore primarily intended for professionals in the sector.
All the details on what keratin is, which substances are harmful and which are not and other particular and very useful information have already been described in detail in this article, just click here to read it.
Before starting we would like to specify that there are several products on the market and each one needs its own application technique.
It is therefore not possible for us to generalize the application technique because our goal is to offer a technical procedure that guarantees a 100% result and therefore a smooth finish for your customer for 5 months and more.
We have therefore chosen to focus our technical guide on one of the best natural smoothing products currently on the market, we are talking about MAXIMUM produced by NIKA Hair Beauty Excellence®.
