*results vary on hair type and frequency of shampooing
Ion Keratin Smoothing Treatment Kit
Step 1: Shampoo the hair with the Ion Keratin Clarifying Shampoo. Shampoo 5 times for virgin, gray or resistant hair. Shampoo 4 t imes for color treated hair. Shampoo 3 times for highlighted or fine hair. For each shampoo, leave the product on the hair for at least 30 seconds prior to rinsing. (Focus on cleansing the hair, not the scalp).


Step 2: Completely dry the hair using medium heat. Section the hair to begin the application in the nape of the neck.


Step 3: Vigorously shake the Ion® Keratin Smoothing Treatment. Pour 2 oz into a non-metallic tint bowl. While wearing gloves, apply a small amount of the Ion Keratin Smoothing Treatment in 1/4" sections using the enclosed tint brush. Using the comb on the opposite side, comb the smoothing treatment through each section to ensure even distribution before continuing to the next section. Do not over saturate each section. If product remains on the comb after combing section, too much product has been applied.


Step 4: Allow to process for 15 minutes at room temperature for normal hair and up to 20 minutes for resistant hair. After the appropriate time has elapsed, use a paddle or vent brush to blow-dry the hair completely.


Step 5: Re-section the hair. Beginning at the nape of the neck, take thinner 1/8"sections and begin flat ironing the hair from the scalp to the ends using the Ion Keratin Smoothing Iron with the temperature set between 400°F and 450°F. Please note at these temperatures it is necessary to use a heat resistant carbon comb. For optimum results use the Ion Keratin Smoothing Comb. For normal hair set the temperature to 450°F. and for fine hair use temperatures set at 430°F. For over processed hair, set as low as 400°F. Be sure to seal the keratin into the hair by repeating the smoothing process with the Ion Keratin Smoothing Iron more than one time per strand. For virgin hair, apply the flat iron 5-7 times per section. For color treated hair apply the flat iron 5 times per section. For highlighted hair, apply the flat iron 3-5 times per section. Work your way through each section of the hair. You will see a glassy appearance on the cuticle layer when the keratin has been sufficiently cured to the hair.


Step 6: DO NOT wet, shampoo, or firmly secure the hair with hair accessories for at least 72 hours to allow the hair to be transformed into the desired smooth straight results. If the hair becomes damp during this period, dry and smooth with the Ion Keratin Smoothing Iron at temperature specific to hair type.


Step 7: It is important to maintain the hair with the Ion Keratin Smoothing maintenance products following the treatment. Shampoos, conditioners, and styling products containing sodium chloride will remove the keratin coating from the hair.


Note: Color services up to 20 volume hydrogen peroxide can be applied same day. Shampoo 3-5 times according to the above directions. Dry the hair 50-100% then proceed with color application. Rinse thoroughly without shampooing or conditioning. Dry the hair completely then continue with the Keratin Smoothing Treatment. If the hair has already been treated with the Keratin Smoothing Treatment, wait 7-10 days before applying hair color. When used with sodium hydroxide relaxers or thermal straighteners it is critical they are applied at least 4 weeks apart.

LOVE IT! Smooth Hair on a Budget Love this product! I have 2 kids, curly hair, no time, and no hair budget. This product works for my life! I had the $300 Brazilian Blowout and then decided to try this home kit. The results are about 80% as good as the $300 blowout and lasts about 3-5 months (depending how fast it grows/you wash it). It takes about the same time as the professional one, but at least you're home. If you can flat iron your own hair, you can do this. It's not difficult, but it does take about 3 hrs (depending on the length/amount of hair and weather you air dry vs hair dry). I decided to mostly air dry my hair in between phases because my hair frizzes a lot with the dryer. Smells great, too (sugar cookies)! My hair still curls up after I wash it, but it takes me half the time to flat iron my hair. Plus, it helps infuse keratin into my hair, helping it stay healthy even after regular flat-ironing and highlights. The Brazilian left my hair TOO straight, this product allows it to be straight but with volume. March 17, 2015
Yes...yes...YESSSSS omgosh so i love this product i just put my second treatment last week Thursday. My hair is natural African-American hair and it mixes well with this product. I absolutely adore this product. My hair without this treatment is a little hard to manage but still i can make it beautiful, with this product i make fantastic i recommend trying this product one time if you have semi manageable hair like mine. it doesn't change your hair texture or make it super straight just very manageable and beautiful. Thank you ION for this awesome product will use again! November 19, 2014
Excellent quality at a great price! I've been wanting a Keratin Treatment since the first time I heard about them! However, as a mother of two children I can't imagine spending $200 on my HAIR! I read a lot of bad reviews, I was even told by my hair stylist to not waste my money... at home treatments do not work! - I'm not denying the the more expensive Keratin Treatments work better that this one but that's a given. You get what you pay for right? I just did the treatment today and yes the shampoo had kind of a funny smell and made my hair feel a little hard to brush through. At that point I started to get a little concerned but then I started blow drying and OMG! Silky smooth! My hair has never been so soft and I hadn't even used conditioner! This is just from the clarifying shampoo... I hadn't even added the smoothing treatment yet! So after that I began applying the treatment. Fairly simple except for the back of my head... I do suggest doing this with a friend so that you can be thorough... I let the product sit for about 20 minutes, blow dried with a huge round vented brush and very carefully straightened small sections. The whole process from start to finish took me about 3 hours. Which is to be expected when doing this type of treatment especially if you have thick, curly hair! Which I do! I'm so anxious for the 72 hour period to pass so I can see how it works after I wash again. I have to say I do not like the thought of going that long without washing. But if we want the prize we have to play by the rules whether we like them or not, right? Like the old cliche goes.... "beauty is pain..." Boy, is it! Lol. I think we're all guilty of setting our expectations too high and when the result is less than perfect we are highly disappointed. September 16, 2014
Horrible, waste of my time and money!! I had natural African American hair 4b type and decided to straighten my hair using this product. First of all it took almost 5 hours from start to finish. My hair was previously colored a nice auburn shade but after applying this product it is now a horrible mix of black and light brown and looks splotchy throughout. The product smells nice but left my hair feeling gummy and heavily coated even after it had beenb dried and flat ironed. Also after flat ironing my hair before going to bed, which did not get it completely smooth and sleek I had to re-flat iron it again in the morning which still did not work. By the time I left for work and being outside within 20 minutes my hair frizzed back up like the product had never been applied. Needless to say I was so upset and distraught over the time and money wasted that I would have just took the empty box back to Sally's and demanded my money back if I thought they would refund it to me. Also as a result the after effects of the product, I ended up just cutting off a lot of damage done to the ends due to the amount of heat needed for this product and just getting a relaxer. I went from having at least 3-4 inches of nice hair before to less that 2 inches afterwards due to the damage . DO NOT USE THIS PRODUCT!! July 3, 2014

I know it says to wait at least 72 hours before shampooing the hair, but will the chlorine in a swimming pool strip the keratin treatment from the hair? I read on a different website (for keratin treatments in general - not just Ion) that you should condition the hair before going into the pool and washing/shampoo after leaving the pool.
