BEFORE and AFTER
How will my new hair growth come out after using SoftLiss?
Your new hair will be healthier, because when you applied the product you utilized a shampoo that opens the hair cuticles and then applied a treatment to reconstruct the base of bio-components and this allowed the benefits of SoftLiss to penetrate to the root. This is one of the advantages to our product, which is what makes it different from all other strengtheners; your hair will be left healthy and hydrated.
How long will the effects of this Brazilian Keratin treatment last?
The effects will last about 3 to 4 months. The straight effect will last in accordance to the number of washes and the types of products used in the maintenance. It is recommended that you use the SoftLiss No-Salt Maintenance Kit. If you wish to repeat the treatment before this time you can do so with no problem.
What will happen to my hair after the 3 months?
After this time has passed you will find that your hair is in a better state than before. Some of the natural waves and features will return, the shine will not be what it once was. This will indicate that it is time for the second application of SoftLiss.
Can I apply SoftLiss Brazilian Keratin the same day that my hair was straightened or dyed?
Yes, you can, though we do not recommend those with sensitive scalp to saturate it with chemical treatments, and thus we recommend that you first dye, streak or highlight and then apply the SoftLiss Keratin Treatment. We also recommend waiting 48 hours after applying color to your hair. Just so that your color does not change. Our treatment will NOT be affected at all whether or not you wait.
After I apply SoftLiss Brazilian Keratin do I have to use any other products?
For the best effect and the longest lasting benefits one should use the SoftLiss Maintenance line of SoftLiss No-Salt Shampoo and Conditioner and the SoftLiss Shine Booster. IMPORTANT: Using shampoos and conditioners that contain sodium chloride will reduce the duration of your Brazilian Keratin super soft straight hair.
