Frequently Asked Questions
During application if product does get on the scalp what will the client experience? If the goal is to be 1/4 in away from scalp is there no way to address tiny curly frizz around the hair line?
We "recommend" product application 1/4" from scalp to avoid any type of irritation. When combing product through, it is inevitable for it to get on the scalp, we just try our best to avoid applying the product DIRECTLY on the scalp. When you are done combing through your section and you feel you may need a little more product in those troublesome areas, that's totally fine to do so. Just do not oversaturate. Oversaturating creates an unnecessary build up on the hair and does not give the client the correct overall picture of the service.
What’s the risk for over saturating the hair?
Oversaturating creates an unnecessary build up on the hair and does not give the client the correct overall picture of the service. It does not harm the service in any way shape or form, but it is doing a disservice to the client by having them leave with a service that is not executed and/or portrayed correctly.
How strongly scented is this product? Is a mask required or suggested?
The scent is not strong. It is a very light/ mild scent. As with any chemical service, some people who are sensitive to certain smells/ scents may want to wear a mask/ or put a towel over their face. We recommend starting your service out with not wearing one, make sure to check in on the client throughout the service to see if they need anything to cover their eyes/ mouth.
Is this formulated with formaldehyde and if not what preservative is used instead for longevity?
There is no formaldehyde in the formula.
The instructions mention rinse after processing but leave a small amount of residual product? This step leaves a lot of room for variation. How is the outcome effected if too much or too little is rinsed out?
Our general rule of thumb is to count to 5 when doing your rinse. This is the perfect amount of time to rinse out any excess product and enough time to make sure there is still enough product in the hair.
Is the proextend intended as a retail product for clients at home?
Yes, the ProExtend is intended for retail. It is utilized to extend the longevity of the smoothing service done in the salon. Extending and maintaining the Smoothing Service at home is a simple and effective way to add on to retail sales.
Is there specific after care info or instructions for clients like products to avoid?
The client should avoid anything with sulfates, sulfites and parabens. These ingredients will rough up the hair cuticle and in turn, have the keratin wash out faster. This goes for all products (shampoos & styling aids).
Can this service be performed immediately following any type of color service?
Yes, you can. The treatment will extend the life and seal the color in.
TIMING OPTIONS ARE AS FOLLOWS:
Option 1: Hair can be colored first and the keratin service immediately after on the SAME DAY.
Option 2: Color first and keratin service ONE WEEK later. (Not any earlier)
Option 3: Keratin first and color TWO WEEKS later. (Not any earlier)
We recommend analyzing the clients hair for porosity, density, texture, and overall integrity before deciding on how you will execute your timing. All of these factors tie in to how you would execute the two services.
