Amino Acid and Sherpa Treatments – perfect together!
Amino Acid Treatment is an anti-frizz, smoothing treatment that makes hair more manageable and less frizzy. The results and process are similar to Keratin Treatments but Amino Acid doesn’t contain any form of formaldehyde. That’s an important factor to us! The nice thing about these temporary treatments is that they gradually fade away over a 3 to 4 month period. What many don’t realize is that these treatments still require a regiment of conditioning to keep hair looking it’s best. Hair that is out of condition always looks dull and dry. It frizzes as the hair strands are reaching out for moisture.
Our New Sherpa Treatment
(A Cell Modular Complex Conditioning Treatment that replenishes the moisture at the cell level) improves hair health like nothing we’ve ever seen, so much so that we had to test the benefits of combining treatments. For those with severely damaged or highlighted hair we’ve always recommended reconditioning the hair before we begin any smoothing treatment. By combining the Sherpa and Amino Acid Treatments we are achieving great results. The pre–treatment is only four steps of the intensive Sherpa Treatment – the hair is filled with moisture – it’s soft and it shines. In the process of the Amino Acid Treatment the hair is ironed sealing the coating to hold hair straighter. Depending on the condition of the hair and the degree of straightness desired we determine the level of heat used. This allows us to process hair that would normally be too fragile for chemical work such as this.
We Consider All Hair To Be Damaged
The environment (indoors and out), water, shampoos, styling aids, flat ironing and blow drying all have a negative effect on hair. Different textures have to be considered as well as the desired results. It’s important to consult with your stylist as to what you want the results to be. Subtle variations in the process make it possible to achieve different results.
Want to Keep Your Curls?
If you have curly hair and want to keep them the heat level is lowered so it doesn’t process the hair straighter than desired. The heat from the ironing deposits the Sherpa Treatment deeper into the shaft. You only want to do this treatment after the previous treatment has faded. Overlapping causes the hair to become straighter.
Between Waves and Frizz?
You’ve got beautiful wavy hair at certain times of the year and at others it’s just frizz. The Amino Acid Treatment keeps the hair from frizzing. Many undergo the treatment as a seasonal fix. And combining it with the partial Sherpa Treatment improves the quality of the hair. It also saves you a lot of time in the styling department.
Got Tight Curls in Need of Relaxation?
For those with tight curly hair the heat level can be raised to give your hair a straightened quality. This texture of hair is the most delicate and the easiest to get out of condition. Possibly because of the styling techniques used to make it more manageable? Flat irons & blow dryers dry out the moisture in the hair. This hair quality needs the most attention to its condition.
Too many people are dealing with the effects of chemotherapy. This combination has proved a miracle for their hair. The new growth is a different texture than their prior hair. It’s become brittle, dry and doesn’t have movement. After this combination the hair is shiny and feels like hair again.
