Step-by-Step to Smooth Hair

The Brasil Cacau keratin treatment provides some serious results. In fact, it should come with a jealousy warning as everybody is bound to have hair envy
once they see the results! For a treatment this intensive it needs to be carried out by a professional. All hair dressers are trained to perform this
type of process and will use to following steps to achieve the optimal results.

1. Anti Residue Shampoo

Hair firstly needs to be washed with the anti residue shampoo by massaging it into the hair and leaving for 5 minutes before rinsing and repeating if necessary.
This alkaline shampoo thoroughly cleans the hair and open up the cuticles ready for the second step. It’s an important part of the process, as preparing
the hair correctly allows for deep penetration of the keratin treatment, allowing it to work effectively.

2. Hair Drying

Only 80% of the hair needs to be dried following the shampooing process.

3. Brazilian Thermal Reconstruction

This is where it gets a bit technical. The hair needs to be split into sections so the thermal reconstruction treatment can be applied near the roots and
combed through. Realigning of the cuticles and hair smoothing are the main aims of this second product. This is where the main benefits – hair smoothing
and brightening – are added to reach that desired end result. No rushing, as slapping it on won’t have the same effect!

4. Cold Hair Drying

The rest of the hair needs to be dried using cold air only, drying 2 strands at a time after the application of the reconstruction product. This then needs
to be repeated on the rest of the sections.

5. Flat Iron

To achieve the straight and sleek look the hair needs to be split into 4 sections with each strand of separated hair being straightened 7-10 times.

6. Deep Conditioning Mask

Once the hair has been completely straightened, it needs to be rinsed with the Deep Conditioning Mask to follow. Once applied this has to be left for 3
to 6 minutes to lock in and prolong the smoothing effects of the treatment, before washing off.

7. Primer

As an added heat protecting step, the pre-styling leave in primer can be applied before drying and styling hair in the preferred way. To maintain and upkeep
the effects of the treatment, Brasil Cacau have also produced a range of products to use outside of the salon. Their anti-frizz shampoo and anti-frizz
conditioner will tame flyaways and the hydrating hair complex mask keeps hair nourished, reducing the likelihood of split ends.

sleek hair that is oh so easy to maintain!
