You are now ready to apply the Keratin Complex Hair Therapy System,

  • Section hair into four parts.

  • Latex Gloves should be worn during this 

  • Starting at the nape section, part the hair into 1/2" to to 1" sections. 

  • Using a tint brush, stat applying the solution from scalp to hair ends.

  • Comb through hair with a fine tooth resistant comb, insuring that the solution is evenly distributed.

  • Repeat this until the entire head is complete.

Note: It is extremely Important that the entire head is completely covered with the solution and that the solution is evenly distributed throughout the hair before proceeding to the next step.

Comb through - using a fine toothed comb - a very little bit should push in front of comb

Saturated but not damming up ahead of comb teeth when combing through

However the hair should not be over-saturated and any excess solution should be combed out of the hair and wiped on a towel.

• Place plastic cap over hair. This allows the hair to remain moist and the treatment to penetrate the hair cuticle,
• The solution must remain in the hair for 20 minutes before drying. Do not wash the solution out of the hair.

Note: No heat is required just 20 to 30 minutes covered with a plastic cap to retain body heat.
Note: Time left in hair is very important. It must remain in the hair for no less than twenty minutes (thirty minutes for resistant hair).
For hair that is very resistant, let client sit for twenty to thirty minutes.

• Remove cap
• Comb out any excess product using a fine tooth comb - wipe excess from comb on to a towel
• Blow Dry hair using a medium/hot setting, blow dry with wide paddle brush or vent brush to 100% dry

STEP 5:  FINAL STEP FLAT IRONING (using ONLY the Keratin Complex brand flat iron)
• Iron temperature should be adjusted to fit with individual client hair type - flat iron is extremely hot and can cause damage
• For color treated, chemically processed or highlighted hair, use 380F to 410F to 430F, with 7-10 passes
• For coarse or resistant hair set iron 430 - 450, with 10-12 passes
• For damaged ends - If the ends of the hair are severely damaged, or split, go over the end area FEWER TIMES to prevent further damage

Be kind to your hair - the more damaged it was to begin with  the more improvement you will see with the treatment. However, the more damaged your hair is to begin with the lower you need to set the temperature on your flat iron.

           380 to  410

         193 to 210

medium damage



no damage

• Using a heat resistant comb, part the hair into four sections
• Starting at the nape, using 1/8" sections, move the iron slowly from scalp to hair ends, assuring that the ends are smooth  & straight 
Go over each section with enough passes, sealing the keratin into the cuticle.

Be careful not to burn the scalp with flat Iron. Repeat this method with all remaining sections of the hair
• Use your flat iron to style hair for height and shape in the direction that the client wears their hair


• Do not wash hair for 3 days or 72 hours.
• Avoid getting any moisture in the hair
