STRAND TEST
  • Always do a strand test before relaxing, even if you have relaxed before.
  • Wear the gloves and keep them on throughout the relaxing process. Take a small section of hair close to the neck. Apply relaxer mixture evenly on unrelaxed portion of test section (if hair has been previously relaxed, apply to new growth only) without touching the scalp. Set timer for your hair texture (see Time chart). Do not rub relaxer into the scalp.
  • Check texture and straightness of your hair regularly while waiting. If they are satisfactory before recommended processing time is up, end the test. Record time in Time Chart and use as your processing time.
  • Otherwise, use the time recommended in Time Chart. Never exceed the maximum processing time indicated in the Time Chart.
  • When time is over, rinse relaxer mixture from the test section with warm water and washes with after relaxing shampoo (3). Rinse. Allow test section of the hair to dry. Check for irritation or hair breakage. In case of irritation occur, do not use this product or any other relaxer.
  • Do not wash entire head after strand test. If strand is not sufficiently relaxed, increase your treatment time from the strand test results, but do not exceed the time range for your hair type.
