  • Contains wheat germ and Argan oil Can be used on all hair types Minimizes frizz 90% – 100% No Formaldehyde added Reduces curl up to 50%
    p>Unlock the professional secret to beautiful hair.


    ion Keratin Smoothing Treatment helps to smooth and soften any hair type into one with luxurious texture and intense shine. It minimizes frizz 90% - 100%% while reducing curl up to 50%. Strengthens and reconstructs while protecting from humidity. Contains wheat germ and argan oil and can be used on all hair types. The moisturizing properties of vanillin, wheat germ and argan oil help to revive, strengthen and nourish dry, damaged hair. Lasts up to 6 - 8 weeks*. No Formaldehyde added.


    Creates a protective protein layer around the hair shaft, helping to eliminate frizz and smooth cuticle but does not rearrange the bonds in the hair. Does NOT enter the cortex.


    Tools required (not included): Ion Keratin Smoothing Iron or comparable flat iron that reaches 450°F., Ion Keratin Smoothing Comb or heat resistant comb, Hair dryer.


    *results vary on hair type and frequency of shampooing

  • 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great results! I had used this a couple of times and was unhappy with the results, so I returned to the salon for treatments. Now that we're under pandemic restrictions and with summer approaching I was concerned about frizz. I'd bought a large bottle before I realized I would return to the salon, so I had some on hand, and decided to try it again. What did I have to lose, right? This time, I realized that I would probably need to use more than I had used previously, as my hair absorbs the product like a sponge. I didn't oversaturate, but I definitely needed more than the recommended amount for my 3c hair. That was my first adjustment. I blow dried as instructed, gave my hair two passes with the flat iron, and said "eh, it doesn't look that great". Then I re-read the instructions, and realized it said to give it up to five passes with the curling iron until it has a glazed sheen. I reheated the curling iron (I do at least have an Ion curling iron!) and went through my hair three more times. Now it looks great! I'm still in the 72 hour window, so I can't wash it until tomorrow, but I'm looking forward to the final results.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wish it was better I’m not sure if I used it wrong even though I followed all of the steps but this “keratin” treatment doesn’t really work on textured hair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No frizz If you follow the directions you’ll be pleased with result. I used right after highlights and color ( a couple of days later). Hair is softer and no frizz. I used to get these treatments 2-3 times a year at the salon and it was very expensive. This has a pleasant vanilla scent and makes hair easier to style. And hair is stronger, less breaks. Use every 6-8 weeks

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did not work did nothing I tried this twice. The first time I followed directions except I washed it out after day & half because was afraid may over smooth or straighten hair. There was no change. Then second time followed directions & left in hair 4 or 5 days (long time). And after I washed I did not notice any change at all. Curls were not less frizzy or looser. So I would not buy this product again

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tried my best The directions and application was very easy to follow and execute. Would love to give it 5 stars but my client refused to follow directions and washed their hair the same day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helps hair in humid climates I don’t do every strand of hair. I do the very top of my hair at the roots and it helps with the fly aways- I live in Houston and it’s very humid here. This product really helps.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesnt work Tried this for the first time, followed all the directions completely. It feelw softer for the first day after i went to sleep woke up and the frizz is back and my hair felt brittle again. Washed my hair 4 days later (waited to be super safe) and all of it went right back the way it was, felt like the whole treatment washed out. I dont recommend

After the 6 weeks does your hair revert back to it's normal curl pattern?

Asked by: hairq22122
Your hair will revert back to its natural pattern as soon as you shampoo it again. It just makes your curls more manageable and cuts your drying time in half!
