There are many smoothing treatments on the market. At Salon AKS, LASIO, Brazilian Blowout and Coppola are all offered. Which is best suited for your needs?
Across the board, they will all seal in the cuticle layer of the hair, leaving hair shiny and silky; even making dull, brittle hair look healthy. The smooth finish makes light reflect differently from your hair, giving your color a boost. Furthermore, it seals in the hair color, leading to less oxidation. The treatments can be customly applied to even out uneven hair textures within one head of hair and rid hair of up to %80 of frizz. Your blowdrying time will be cut in half. That blow dry will now also last longer because it is not as affected by humidity. Keratin treatments will loosen curls but not get rid of them.
Specifics of the different brands are as follows:
LASIO is heat activated. You must use a blowdryer or hot tool in order to activate the treatments affectors. This is a great treatment to receive in between hair relaxers in order to allow the hair shaft to renew its elasticity and strength. LASIO requires a 24 hr wait time before you may wash, wet or alter hair shape in a forceful way (ie:tucking behind your ear or pulling into a ponytail)
3 day Coppola: will loosen the curl pattern the most out of the treatment choices. It is not heat activated so you may wash and go if you wish. Coppola requires 3 days of wait time before you may wash, wet or alter hair shape in a forceful way (ie:tucking behind your ear or pulling into a ponytail)
Brazilian Blowout: this is the most customizable treatment. The amount of curl and body that is taken away or kept in the hair is directly correlated to the amount of product and heat that is applied. In this way, the technician may work to achieve specific results for each individual. Brazilian Blowout requires no wait time but rather gets a fresh rinse and regular looking hairstyle immediately upon completion of treatment.
