TIP FOR SHORT HAIR

For short or less curly hair do not use a hot iron and carry on with the treatment as a cold straightening version without using heat. The developing time can be extended by 5 minutes.

In the case of regrowth treatment, only treat the sections of the hair subject to regrowth (the roots). In this case the regrowth should amount at least approx. 4 cm. Pay attention beforehand to thoroughly protecting the lengths and ends that have already been treated with the preparation cream
