To ensure even distribution of the smoothing treatment, we use a comb to distribute it through the hair from scalp to ends.

We allow the hair to process for twenty five minutes at room temperature for normal hair or for relaxed hair, thirty minutes for coarse or resistant hair. We rinse the smoothing treatment out of the hair thoroughly with warm water. We shampoo twice using the Nourishing Deep Cleansing Shampoo, leaving on for at least 30 seconds each time.

The Question is: out of Ceramic flat irons, Tourmaline flat irons and Titanium flat irons which one should you buy? Titanium flat irons are the newest in technology but are they really better? Here are some claims about Titanium flat irons.

  • Titanium flat irons are made to have exceptionally smooth surface and durable plates
  • Hair will glide down with no snagging or pulling
  • Titanium flat irons yield the maximum amount of far infrared heat that penetrates the hair from inside out to straighten gently, without causing damage

Titanium (Ti) is a metal which heats very evenly (no cold spots) with a high ionic output, so the plates on a titanium flat iron get hair shinier & sleeker.  

Hair Elasticity

Hair elasticity is the ability of hair to stretch and return to its original form without breaking. Hair can be classified as having good elasticity,  normal  elasticity, or poor elasticity.

Hair with normal elasticity is springy and has a lively and lustrous appearance. Normal dry hair is capable of being stretched about 20% of its length. It springs back when released. Wet hair can be stretched more than 40% of its length. Porous hair stretches more than hair with poor porosity.

Hair Texture

Hair texture refers to the degree of coarseness or fineness of the hair, which may vary on different parts of the head. Variations in hair texture are due to:

  • Diameter of the hair, whether coarse, medium, fine, or very fine. Coarse hair has the greatest diameter, whereas very fine hair has the smallest.
  • Medium hair is the type most commonly seen in the salon. This type of hair does not present any special problems.
  • Fine or very fine hair requires special care.

Hair Porosity

Hair porosity is the ability of all types of hair to absorb moisture. Hair has good porosity when the cuticle layer is raised from the hair shaft and can absorb a fair or normal amount of moisture or chemicals. Moderate porosity (normal hair) is most often seen in the salon; it is less porous than hair with good porosity. Usually hair with good or moderate porosity presents no problems when receiving hair services, whether they involve permanent waving, hair tinting or lightening. Poor porosity (resistant hair) exists when the cuticle layer is lying close to the hair shaft and absorbs the least amount of moisture. Hair with poor porosity requires thorough analysis and a strand test before the application of the hair cosmetics. Extreme porosity is seen in hair in poor condition, which may be due to tinting, lightening, or damage from continuous or faulty treatments.

Hair Loss

Millions of people in the world—both men and women—suffer from hair loss. Terms for hair loss can be categorized as follows:

  • Andrognetic Alopecia
  • Alopecia Atreata
  • Telogen Effluvium
  • Traction or Traumatic Alopecia
  • Pospartum Alopecia
Androgenetic Alopecia

This can be inherited from either side of the family or from both sides.  Affected members of the same family may have varying degrees of thinning.

In men, this is known as male pattern baldness and usually progress to the familiar horseshoe-shaped fringe of hair.

In women, it turns up as a generalized crown of the head. Over time the hair on the sides may also become thinner. Women retain their frontal hairline, it is extremely rare for a women to go bald.

Alopecia Areata

This refers to sudden loss of hair in round or irregular patches; the scalp is not inflamed. This type of hair loss occurs in individuals who have no obvious skin disorder or serious disease and is often attributed to stress. Alopecia Atreata is confined to a few areas and is often revered in a few months, though recurrences may occur.

Telogen Effluven

This premature shedding of hair in the resting phase can result from various causes, such as difficult childbirth, shock, drug intake, fever, etc. Some women also experience sudden hair loss when they stop taking birth control pills or if they follow a crash diet too low in protein. The hair loss is usually reversed once the condition is resolved.

Traction or Traumatic Alopecia

Patchy or diffuse hair loss is sometimes due to repetitive traction on the hair by pulling or twisting. This type of hair loss also occurs after excessive application of chemicals, such as permanent wave solutions or after excessive use of hot combs.  This condition is usually reversed once trauma has stopped.

Pospartum Alopecia

Women sometimes experience temporary hair loss at the conclusion of a pregnancy. While some women can lose tremendous amounts of hair in the weeks following the birth of their child, the abnormal hair loss slows as hormone levels in the body return to pre-pregnancy levels.

Hair Loss Treatments

First and foremost, consult your physician.

Non-medical Cosmetology Options for Hair loss:

Wigs, toupees, and hair weaving/hair extensions are services we suggest. Hair weaving/hair extensions allow you to enhance your natural hair, boosting your self-esteem while creating a look that meets your needs. In addition, there are many thickening and volumizing hair products available today. It is important to note that they do not physiologically thicken hair. Nor do they put a halt to hair loss or actually grow hair. Volumizing products coat the hair, giving it more body.

Medical Treatments for Hair Loss:

Two effective treatments for hair loss are available: a topical treatment and a drug treatment.

Topical Treatments

Minoxidil is a topical solution medically proven to regrow hair when applied to the scalp, usually twice a day. Since 1996, it has been sold without a prescription and is available in two strengths. It has no adverse effects on hormones or sexual function, and is not associated with adverse effects on blood pressure, pulse rate, body weight, electrocardiograms, or laboratory assays.

Minoxidil is simply a treatment for hair loss and is not a cure. Minoxidil works by partially enlarging miniaturized follicles and reversing the miniaturization process. This prolongs the growth phase of the hair cycle, allowing the hair to become longer and thicker.

Finasteride is a once a day prescription pill for the treatment of Androgenetic Alopecia in men only. It works through male hormones.

Disorders of the Hair

Hypertrichosis or Hirsuties

Hypertrichosis or Hirsuties refers to superfluous hair (an abnormal development of hair on areas of the body normally bearing only downy hair.


Tweeze or remove by depilatories, electrolysis, shaving, or epilation


Trichoptilosis is the technical term of split ends.


The hair should be well oiled to soften and lubricate the dry ends. The ends also may be removed by cutting.

Trichorrhexis Nodosa or Knotted Hair

Trichorrhexis Nodosa or knotted hair is a dry, brittle condition, including formation of nodular swellings along the hair shaft. The hair breaks easily, and there is a brush-like spreading out of the fibres of the broken-off hair along the hair shaft.


Softening the hair with conditioner may prove beneficial.

Monilethrix is the technical term for beaded hair. The hair breaks between the beads or nodes.

Conditioning hair treatment may be recommended.

Fragilitas Crinium

Fragilitas Crinium is the technical term for brittle hair. The hair may split at any part of their length.

Conditioning hair treatment may be recommended.


Dandruff consists of small, white scales that usually appear on the scalp and hair. If neglected for long, excessive dandruff can lead to baldness. There are two types of dandruff, as noted below.

Pityriasis Capitis (Dry Dandruff)
This type of dandruff is often the result of a sluggish scalp caused by poor circulation, lack of nerve stimulation, improper diet, emotional and glandular disturbances, or unclean lines.

Frequent scalp treatments, use of mild shampoos, regular scalp massage, daily use of antiseptic scalp lotion, and applications of scalp ointments are all recommended for this disorder.

Pityriasis  Steatoides (Greasy or Waxy Dandruff)

This type of dandruff is a scaly condition of the epidermis (surface skin). The scales become mixed with sebum, causing them to stick to the scalp in patches. There may be itchiness, causing the person to scratch the scalp. If the greasy scales are torn off, bleeding or oozing of sebum may follow. Medical treatment is advisable.
Both forms of dandruff are considered to be contagious and can be spread by the common use of brushes, combs, and other articles. Therefore, the necessary precautions must be taken to sanitize everything that comes into contact with the client.

Animal Parasitic Infection


Scabies is a highly contagious animal parasitic skin disease caused by the itch mite.

Pediculosis Capitis

Pediculosis capitis is a contagious condition caused by head louse (animal parasite) infesting the hair of the scalp . The head louse is transmitted from one person to another by contact with infested hats, combs, brushes, or other personal articles.

To kill head lice, it is advisable to apply dark spur tincture, or other similar medication, to the entire head before retiring. The next morning, the client should shampoo with germicidal soap. Treatment should be repeated as necessary. Due to its highly contagious nature, we never treat a head lice condition in the hair salon.

Vegetable Parasitic Infections


Tinea is the medical term for ringworm. Ringworm is caused by vegetable parasites. All forms are contagious and can be transmitted from one person to another. The disease is commonly carried by scales or hairs containing fungi. Bathtubs, swimming pools, and unsanitized articles are also sources of transmission.

Ringworm starts with a small, reddened patch of little blisters. Several such patches may be present. Any ringworm condition should be referred to a physician.

Tinea Capitis

Tina capitis, ringworm of the scalp, is characterized by red papules, or spots, a the opening of the hair follicle. The patches spread and the hair becomes brittle and lifeless. It breaks off, leaving a stump, or falls from the enlarged open follicles.

Tinea Favosa

Tinea favosa, or favus, is characterized by dry, sulfer-yellow, cuplike crusts on the scalp, called scutula, which have a peculiar odour. Scars from favus are bald patches that may be pink or white and shiny. It’s very contagious and should be referred to a physician.

Staphylococci Infections


Furuncle, or boil, is an acute staphylococci infection of a hair follicle that produces constant pain. It is limited to a specific area and produces a pustule perforated by a hair.


Carbuncle is the result of an acute staphylococci infection and is larger than a furuncle. It’s very contagious and should be referred to a physician.
