Check the client’s hair condition and look for damage done by tints and other chemicals.
Choose an appropriate shampoo from the YUKO range depending on the clent’s hair type.
For people whose hair tangles easily also use the corresponding conditioner/treatment.
Spray G Hair Water over the client’s hair and then apply an appropriate amount of G-PPT.
Divide the hair into five sections and apply the solution starting 1 inch (approx 2 cm) away from the scalp and cover the hair with a plastic wrap.
Take several strands of hair. Wipe off the excess solution and wrap the strands around your finger twice to create a loop. Remove your finger and place the loop in the palm of your hand. If the hair reverts back to its original shape then it is not quite ready yet. If it remains in the loop shape then it is ready and you can proceed with the next stage.
Take a few strands of hair. Wipe off the excess solution. Hold the hair at the root and also an inch or so away and gently stretch. If the hair feels hard and resistant to the stretch then it is not quite ready yet. If it feels relaxed and soft then you can proceed to the next stage.
Gently rinse from the nape down using lukewarm water. After thoroughly rinsing out the solution, gently shampoo with a shampoo from the YUKO range. Apply a little conditioner/treatment to damaged or tangled hair.
Towel-dry the hair and spray a generous amount of G Hair Water followed by G Heat Guard all over. Divide the hair and dry it section by section. Make sure it retains some moisture. For the ironing use the most suitable temperature for the condition of the hair. Iron until each section is completely dry.
Apply the neutraliser 2 inches (approx 4 cm) away from the scalp and leave for 10 minutes.
Rinse out the neutraliser with lukewarm water. Do NOT shampoo at this stage. Instead, apply a conditioner/treatment from the YUKO range throughout the hair and rinse gently.
Towel-dry the hair. Spray G Hair Water and G-Heat Guard all over the hair and then blow-dry until completely dry.
Style with the YUKO iron.
It is important to advise clients NOT to shampoo their hair for 48 hours after having YUKO straightening. They should also avoid any form of moisture, e.g. excessive perspiration, saunas etc. They should also keep their hair as straight as possible for a week (refrain from using hair clips, putting hair behind ears etc). Be sure to advise clients NOT to colour their hair for at least 2 weeks after the straightening.
