After: 6 weeks later. Hair was air dried, no product. Client says that she normally blow drys her hair which makes it much straighter than air drying. Hair is parted to show waviest section.
After: Test strand section on right side shows the lightening of color experienced by everyone who colors their hair the same tone or darker with a semi-permanent color. Lightening does not appear to happen with highlights or to the same degree with permanent dark color
Bends: A 2" section held up to show breakage from bends. Client first came to us hoping we could fix her hair by restraightening it. Client had between 50% to 70% breakage on crown due to bends. The broken hair was about 3/4" long. Hairs could easily be popped off at right angle bends. Client turned away because a successful TR could not be cone at the time. Client called back for a BKT when BKT became available.
Before: TR'd hair (performed in LA) with 1 1/2" of new growth. Totally damaged all over. Ends completely fried, scalp breakage. Patchy wave and kinks throughout. No color services on hair. Medium-fine texture, low-med density.
After: 4 days later after first wash, finger blow dry, no products, no flatironing. Ends still very damaged. Overall smoothing made hair appear much healthier. No added bend breakage. Right angles completely straightened out and were harder to pop off. Client was very pleased with results.
Before: 1/4 black, 3/4 European. Med-coarse texture, med-high density. Very dry, damaged split hair. Complete bleach with bleached highlights, recently darkened to level shown in photo.
After: 4 days later after first wash and finger blow dry. Before hair was blown dry, around 30% wave still visible. After dry, hair was straight with body. Ends slightly cupped under.
