Here in Hair Fx we use Sweet First Shampoo for our smoothing services. We have being offering this service for a number of years and have used many different products along the way. We discovered Sweet First Shampoo a couple of years ago and we absolutely love it, as do our guests.
Let me tell you a little about it and hopefully I will be able to answer any questions you might have.
If you are struggling to get your hair to behave, frizzy, thick, too much volume, or just won't do as you want in the time frame you would like, then this is the solution to all those problems. Sweet First Shampoo will reduce your stying time by half, your hair will be much easier to style, you will have less volume and your hair will hold the style regardless of the weather, the perfect treatment at any time of the year.
The Sweet First Shampoo contains the same ingredients as most facial peels (Salicylic, Glycolic, Lactic, Hyaluronic and Alpha Lipoic), so if you have had a facial peel you know that it can tingle a bit, so the same goes for this, if some gets on the scalp it might tingle, but should be nothing more than that, if you feel anything more than this, speak up and let us know.
It is free of sulphates, parabens and formaldehyde, also cruelty free and organic. You can use any shampoo you want to maintain it at home but we do give you professional home care from the Actyva range to suit your hair type because we know your hair will look and feel a lot better if you follow our recommendations (unless of course you are taking advantage of a salon promo, then home care may not be included)
We allow 2 to 3 hours for this service, obviously if you have a particularly thick head of hair, you can add some extra time to this as you would to all salon services.
You can tie your hair up afterwards without leaving any marks once washed, unlike some other smoothing services, but really, why would you want to? You can swim in salt water or chlorinated pools without any adverse effects. Colouring and lightening services can all be done on the same day, but bring a book and some snacks, you will be here for the long haul. This will fade your colour so best to have your colour done after your 12 Week Blowdry, (unless of course you are trying to fade a bad home job)
The Sweet First Shampoo smoothens and relaxes your hair using the 5 beneficial acids listed above, which, when activated by heat, alter the natural shape of the hair within the cortex. This gives you smoother, straighter hair for up to 3 to 4 months and this is a progressive treatment, giving even better results the more you do it. (Do keep in mind that this is not a straightening service)
It is a very safe product to use but do note, it does contain Aspirin, so if you have an allergy to aspirin, this might not be the best service for you. And while the manufacturers say that it safe to use while pregnant, it would be best to get your GP's advice, as Aspirin is a contraindication when pregnant.
If you still have unanswered questions, just get in touch and we can organise a consultation to ensure we clarify everything for you
