How to use the Rio Keratin Treatment
Wet hair with warm water and wash it thoroughly with our Aloe/Mint Pre-Treatment (Clarifying) Shampoo (Step 1).
Our clarifying shampoo will remove residues from the scalp and open the cuticles for better absorption of the Keratin Treatment Lotion (Step 2).
For best results we suggest a total of three washes for normal hair and four for oily hair.
Then blow dry hair to about 80% and untangle it with a comb.
Separate hair in 4 sections, tying each section to facilitate the application of Rio Keratin Treatment Lotion (Step 2).
Pour about 1 to 1.5 ounces of our Rio Keratin Treatment Lotion (Step 2) in a bowl.
To minimize waste and for better absorption we suggest that the application be done by hand. So please wear gloves
Apply our KeratinTreatment Lotion (Step 2) from the root to the tip of the hair, making sure that every strand receives the Keratin treatment.
When a portion of hair is saturated with our KeratinTreatment Lotion (Step 2), spread it more evenly with a fine-toothed comb.
Repeat the application process on the remaining untreated hair.
NOTE: When applying keratin make sure to start approximately 1.5 inches from the scalp. The reason for this is that hair roots are already healthy and do not require treatment; also, as heat must be applied wherever the keratin treatment is applied, it is best to avoid contact with the scalp in order to prevent heat damage on the scalp .
When the entire hair has received the Rio Keratin Treatment Lotion (Step 2) let it sit for about 15 minutes
DRYING OPTIONS IN PREPARATION FOR
THE SEALING PROCESS
1 - If hair is naturally straight, just blow dry it to about 90%, without the use of a brush. Not using a brush during the drying process decreases the output of vapor, as evaporation of water contents occurs more naturally without brushing. When the hair is about 90% dry, then just brush it well to prepare for the sealing process.
2- If hair is curly, blow dry it to about 50%, then split it in four sections again to facilitate the brushing process. Then blow dry it while brushing it thoroughly.
SEALING THE KERATIN TREATMENT INTO THE HAIR
After the hair is thoroughly dried, split it in two or four sections, as you prefer, to facilitate the sealing process.
The sealing process is accomplished by applying heat of a straightening iron. We recommend the use of a professional ceramic iron for better results, at a temperature of 230 degrees Celsius (450 degrees Fahrenheit)
Procedure: Iron the hair from 6 to 8 times. If ironing it 6 times, iron the first 3 times from the roots to the middle, and then another 3 times from the roots to the tips; and 4 times each if ironing it 8 times. Such a procedure will prevent over drying the tips.
The treatment is finished when this procedure is done on the entire hair. If client does not want to wash the hair right after the treatment, then apply Rio-Keratin Final Touch Serum for added shine, UV protection, and a delicious fragrance
Being a treatment, the longer it stays on the hair (max 72 hrs) before washing, the better the results. However, with our formula the hair can be washed even right after the treatment. When washing the same day or even 1, 2, or 3 days later, do not use shampoo, just rinse the hair thoroughly with cold water. In case the hair is too oily after 2 or 3 days, it can be lightly washed with our Salt and Sulfate-free Shampoo. And we highly recommend the use of our especially formulated after-care line of salt- and sulfate-free shampoo, post-treatment keratin complex (conditioner), and serum for regular home use to prolong the effects of the treatment.
APPLYING RIO-KERATIN MASK (STEP 3)
Application of Mask (Step 3) is a must for superior and longer results of the Keratin treatment. The mask should be applied at the first wash, either in the salon by the hairdresser or at home by the client.
To apply our Mask (Step 3) rinse hair with cold water. Then remove excess water by hand and apply the mask, massaging the scalp and entire hair for about 5 minutes. Then let it sit for another 5 minutes before rinsing with cold water. After rinsing, towel dry the hair to remove excess water, and then blow dry and brush it thoroughly. It's not necessary to flat iron the hair after the mask application, just blow dry and brush it well.
