FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is Design Essentials® Strengthening Therapy System?
Design Essentials® Strengthening Therapy System is one of the safest and most effective amino-acid infused thermal reconditioning systems. Design Essentials® Strengthening Therapy System strengthens the hair while straightening, stretching and smoothing naturally curly, frizzy, multi-textured, transitioning and chemically treated hair.

Is Design Essentials® Strengthening Therapy System a straightening system?
Yes, the Design Essentials® Strengthening Therapy System straightens the hair while providing maximum strengthening.

What is the active ingredient used in the Design Essentials® Strengthening Therapy System?
Design Essentials® Strengthening Therapy System is an Amino-Acid based system, using the active Cysteine Amino Acid. It does not contain Formaldehyde nor any Formaldehyde derivatives. It does not emit harmful gasses as seen with Formaldehyde based straightening systems.

Is the Design Essentials® Strengthening Therapy System a chemical?
No, the Design Essentials® Strengthening Therapy System is not a chemical. It is a protein based treatment that does not contain any harsh or permanent chemicals. Unlike chemical based products, Strengthening Therapy System does not break nor rearrange the bonds. In contrast, it fills the hair fiber with micro-fine amino acids, resulting in the stretching or elongation of the hair strand, while providing maximum strengthening to the hair.

Does Design Essentials® Strengthening Therapy System contain Formaldehyde?
No, the Design Essentials® Strengthening Therapy System does not contain Formaldehyde or any ingredients that emit any level of Formaldehyde.

How does the Strengthening Therapy System work?
Design Essentials® Strengthening Therapy System utilizes the Thermal Reconditioning Process to elongate, straighten, strengthen and transform hair into a stronger, healthier, more manageable state that lasts up to 12 weeks.
1) The hair is infused with micro-fine amino acids (Cystine Amino-Acids) that penetrate deep into the hair shaft into the cortex of the hair.
2) The micro-fine amino acids completely fills the hair shaft to reinforce and strengthen the hair.
3) When heat is applied the restructuring/stretching process begins causing the molecules to align and the hair to gently elongate. The bonds of the hair are not broken, just stretched.
4) The cuticle layer is then sealed during the flat ironing process resulting in hair that is stronger, stretched and can be worn straight or curly, and silkier to the touch.

How does the Design Essentials® Strengthening Therapy System differ from a Keratin System or a Relaxer?
Design Essentials® Strengthening Therapy System is neither a relaxer system nor a keratin system. Unlike relaxer systems, Strengthening Therapy does not use any harsh or permanent chemicals, does not break the disulfide bonds like a relaxer and has no risk in over-processing the hair. Unlike Keratin systems, Strengthening Therapy is truly Formaldehyde Free. It is an Amino-Acid based system that tames, smoothes and elongates curls for a lasting, yet non-permanent effect (up to 12 weeks). It is perfect for women who are transitioning, does not require multiple salon visits to complete service and is effective on all hair types.

Can a client go back to curly after the Design Essentials® Strengthening Therapy System?
Yes, Design Essentials® Strengthening Therapy System provides style versatility. Clients can wear their hair straight today and curly tomorrow with ease and without the wait.

How does the Design Essentials® Strengthening Therapy System react to humidity and hot flashes?
Design Essentials® Strengthening Therapy System is formulated with a unique anti-reversion process that locks out humidity and other reversion agents, providing maximum reversion resistance, significantly reduced root-to-tip swelling and up to 12 weeks of frizz free lasting style.

Who is the Design Essentials® Strengthening Therapy System Transitioning Mousse suitable for?
Design Essentials® Strengthening Therapy Transitioning Mousse is perfect for transitioning or naturally curly customers who prefer to wear their hair straight. Transitioning Mousse delivers a sleek, smooth, lustrous finish to multiple hair types.

Who is the Design Essentials® Strengthening Therapy System Elongation Mousse suitable for?
Design Essentials® Strengthening Therapy Elongation Mousse is perfect for natural customers (wavy to tightly coiled) who want to wear their hair curly and seeking greater manageability and frizz control. Elongation Mousse defines, stretches and maximizes natural curl length.

Who is the Design Essentials® Strengthening Therapy System Silkening Spray suitable for?
Design Essentials® Strengthening Therapy Silkening Spray is ideal for clients who are chemically treated (relaxed or color treated) or those who have weakened or damaged hair.

How long will the Transitioning Mousse or Elongation Mousse Treatment last?
Design Essentials® Strengthening Therapy Transitioning Mousse or Elongation Mousse will last up to 12 weeks providing maximum conditioning, taming and silkening of the hair.

How frequently should the Silkening Spray Treatment be used?
Design Essentials® Strengthening Therapy Silkening Spray provides immediate strengthening. For optimal results and maximum strengthening, repeat treatment weekly for three weeks.

Can Design Essentials® Strengthening Therapy System be used on relaxed hair?
Yes, the Design Essentials® Strengthening Therapy Silkening Spray is the product of choice for anyone who has a relaxer and will continue to get a relaxer. As a treatment it will refortify the hair and eliminate frizz, leaving hair shiny and silky.

Can the Silkening Spray be used on the same day as a relaxer?
Design Essentials® Strengthening Therapy Silkening Spray can be used the same day as a relaxer service to refortify and fill in the broken fibers of the hair.

Is the Design Essentials® Strengthening Therapy System safe to use on a child’s hair?
Yes, the Design Essentials® Strengthening Therapy System is gentle enough to be used on a child without damage or harm to the child or her hair. Consideration should be given to the child’s ability to sit still during the treatment process.

Can I color my hair before or after using the Design Essentials® Strengthening Therapy System?
Color can be used before or after the use of the Design Essentials® Strengthening Therapy System. You should apply color at least one week prior to receiving the Strengthening Therapy System Treatment or at least two weeks after receiving the treatment. When coloring before the use of the Strengthening Therapy System Treatment, it may be necessary to formulate one to two shades darker as the system may lift/lighten the color by one to two shades.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q. Who is the best candidate for the Brazilian Blowout?
A. It has been our experience, that good candidates for the Brazilian Blowout are anyone who has frizzy, damaged or processed hair. We have performed the treatment on every hair type (fine/course/frizzy/curly), as well as hair that has been permed, Japanese straightened and extensions. In doing so, we have found that with proper communication and a well considered application, everyone can benefit from the Brazilian Blowout smoothing treatment.

Q. What kind of look will you get from the Brazilian Blowout?
A. The hair will be left totally frizz-free, shiny, effortlessly manageable and with plenty of body and bounce. There will still be the option to wear hair curly/wavy (depending on the hair type) and the freedom to blow dry hair smooth and straight in a fraction of the time invested prior to receiving the treatment.

Q. Can I still receive a Brazilian Blowout if I have highlights and/or color?
A. Yes, the Brazilian Blowout will actually improve the health of color-treated/highlighted hair by conditioning the hair while sealing the cuticle for enhanced color, reduced frizz and radiant shine.

Q. Is the Brazilian Blowout going to make my hair straight?
A. If your hair is wavy, the Brazilian Blowout will make your hair appear naturally straight and healthy. If your hair is very curly, it will minimize frizz while enhancing the appearance of the natural wave/curl. If you have straight, frizzy hair, this treatment will eliminate frizz and promote radiant shine.

Q. How long does the Brazilian Blowout last?
A. The Brazilian Blowout will last for 10-12 weeks if the Açai After-Care Maintenance product line is used. The Brazilian Blowout is a cumulative treatment, in that the more you receive it, the healthier the hair will be and the longer the result will last.

Q. Can you apply the Brazilian Blowout directly on top of other relaxers and strengtheners?
A. Yes. The Brazilian Blowout actually works best on chemically treated hair, and helps to improve the hairs condition by fortifying each strand with essential amino acids.

The Brazilian Blowout works great directly on top of a relaxer. Perform the relaxer first, Brazilian Blowout next, and then neutralize at the very end of both treatments.

The Brazilian Blowout is great to perform when someone is trying to move away from having relaxers or Japanese straighteners. It puts movement back into the hair, allowing the hair to look its best.

Q. Will my hair lose volume if I receive the Brazilian Blowout?
A. No, your hair will not lose volume as a result of receiving the Brazilian Blowout. Your hair will maintain its natural volume and you will still receive great bend and memory when blow-drying and/or using a curling iron.

Q. Can you color your hair the same day you receive a Brazilian Blowout?
A. Yes, however, you must color your hair prior to having the Brazilian Blowout smoothing treatment.
