  • The Texture Release® Thermal Protector spray is a very effective thermal protect ant, and helps to protect the hair from the potential thermal damage caused by the flat iro
  • The active ingredients in Texture Release® products are used to enhance manageability while providing radiant shine
  • The Glyoxylol Carbocysteine, Glyoxylol Keratin Amino Acids and Diamine mixture reacts with the amine groups of hair, resulting in a relatively stable bon
  • This allows the semi-permanent smooth service to remain for a longer period of tim
  • The heat from the flat iron activates the key ingredients to create a new, semi- permanent bonds in the hair fibre. This creates a straighter appearance that gives shiny, smooth results

Facts about smoothing systems

To understand how smoothing systems work, it’s best to understand the basic foundation of hair chemistry

  • Hair is made of amino acids, which combine together to build proteins
  • As the hair grows, the amino acids form together as a long chain called keratin
  • These long protein chains wrap around each other like a rope, which makes up the basic structure of the hair
  • Inside the hair structure, the keratin forms crosslinks with adjacent cysteine.
  • The wavy or curly nature of the hair fibres is dependent on the presence of ortho cortical cells in the hair cortex
  • Typically, the more ortho cortical cells in a hair fibre, the curlier the hair
  • Smoothing services fill in the cortex with additional crosslinks in order to create a new, smooth surface
  • Key smoothing ingredient is Glyoxylol Carbocysteine, Glyoxylol Keratin Amino Acids that work in tandem to create strong crosslinks between the keratin proteins in the hair fibre
  • When the crosslinking agent is flat-ironed in the hair, a fairly long-lasting smoothing effect is produced
  • Since the treatment does not permanently change the internal structure of the hair, the stylist has the ability to offer
