Solution is Applied:

Once your hair has been shampooed, the solution (also called the activator) will be applied and left on your hair for some time. Then, the stylist will do a strand test to ensure if your hair is ready to be treated upon.


If you get through the strand test, your hair will be rinsed and conditioned. Then, a hair protectant will be applied to your hair before it could be ironed out at very precise temperatures.

Neutralizer is Applied:

Ironing is followed by the application of a neutralizer on the hair for stabilizing the balance of pH.
