a-KERATIN SMOOTHING & REFINISHING TREATMENT

  1.  CLIENT CONSULTATION: We always recommend that you begin with asking questions and utilizing the Peter Coppola Curl Key to help you determine the best steps in moving forward with your treatment service.

  2.  CLARIFY THE HAIR: Using the Peter Coppola α-Keratin Clarifying Shampoo, gently cleanse the hair, then, towel dry, leaving the hair slightly damp.

  3.  SECTION THE HAIR: Section the hair into a standard T-part. This will allow for complete control in your application.

  4.  APPLY THE TREATMENT: Shake the product well. Start with 1-2 oz. for the entire application, adding more as needed, depending on the hair length and texture. Take your first section starting in the nape, horizontal to your parting, approximately ¼ inch. Starting ⅛ inch from the root, apply a thin layer, saturating evenly to the ends.

  5.  PROCESS: Utilize the Peter Coppola Curl Key as your timing guide to determine processing, between 20-50 minutes. Comb the hair every five minutes while processing. This will evenly distribute the product throughout the hair and ensure the smoothest results.

  6.  RINSE: Rinse the product completely from the hair with warm water. Rinse for a minimum of 5 minutes.

  7.  BLOW DRY: Section the hair, and blow dry the hair 100% dry. For some hair types and desired results, round brushing may be suitable for finishing.

  8.  FLAT IRON OR CURL: Flat iron or curl the hair (optional depending on the client's desired results) at a heat setting of 350-430 degrees Fahrenheit. Section the hair once more and flat iron or curl the hair, using ⅛-inch – ½-inch horizontal sections.
