1) Thermal Reconditioning is a permanent hair straightening service that will alter the internal structure of your hair. It will compress the cuticle of the hair making it appear silky and shiny.Due to this compression it may make some hair appear thinner. The process will grow out . With excessivelly curly hair it will leave a visible root line.While a skilled tech can handle any type hair TR works best on hair that is not too chemically treated.The process will take from 4-7 hours depending on your hair and will need to be done every 6-9 months.
2)Brazilian Keratin Treatment is a straghtening service that will smooth and condition the hair making it extremely silky and shiny without compressing the cuticle. The Keratin will rebuild the hair making it very healthy.This will not make thin hair appear thinner. It will work great on excessively damaged hair. The process takes around 2-3 hours and will last from 2-3 months and will gradually grow out leaving no visible root line. Because of the strong conditioning benefits the process can be repeated as often as every month.Repeated applications will rebuild the hair and the straightening effects will become more permanent.For even more info and some great before and afters check out www.braziliankeratin.com
