Who is the best candidate for the CHI Enviro American Smoothing Treatment?
It has been our experience, that good candidates for the CHI Enviro American Smoothing Treatment are anyone who has frizzy, damaged or processed hair. We have performed the treatment on every hair type (fine/course/frizzy, curly), as well as hair that has been permed, Japanese straightened and extensions. In doing so, we have found that with proper communication and a well considered application, everyone can benefit from the CHI Enviro American Smoothing Treatment smoothing treatment.

When can I shampoo my hair?
You may shampoo your hair 48 hours following the smoothing treatment. However, do not use pony tail bands, clips, headbands or anything that would stifle the hair’s straight pattern for at least 7 days following the treatment.

How long will the results last?
Smoothing treatment results can last up to 4 months depending upon hair type and maintenance at home from client. It is recommended that customers use the CHI Enviro Home Care Maintenance Shampoo and Conditioner.

What kind of look will you get from the CHI Enviro American Smoothing Treatment?
The hair will be left totally frizz-free, shiny, effortlessly manageable and with plenty of body and bounce. There will still be the option to wear hair curly/wavy (depending on the hair type) and the freedom to blow dry hair smooth and straight in a fraction of the time invested prior to receiving the treatment.

This hair straightening treatment can be given again after 4-6 weeks. It has no harmful chemicals. Only amino acids, proteins, silk and pearl are infused into the hair.

Is the CHI Enviro American Smoothing Treatment going to make my hair straight?
If your hair is wavy, the CHI Enviro American Smoothing Treatment will make your hair appear naturally straight and healthy. If your hair is very curly, it will minimize frizz while enhancing the appearance of the natural wave/curl. If you have straight, frizzy hair, this treatment will eliminate frizz and promote radiant shine.

Can I still receive a CHI Enviro American Smoothing Treatment if I have highlights and/or color? Yes, the CHI Enviro American Smoothing Treatment will actually improve the health of color-treated/highlighted hair by conditioning the hair while sealing the cuticle for enhanced color, reduced frizz and radiant shine.

Will my hair lose volume if I receive the CHI Enviro American Smoothing Treatment?
No, your hair will not lose volume as a result of receiving the CHI Enviro American Smoothing Treatment. Your hair will maintain its natural volume and you will still receive great bend and memory when blow-drying and/or using a curling iron.

Yes, the hair will revert to its original state once the CHI Enviro American Smoothing Treatment has completed its life cycle of up to 16 weeks, however, the condition of the hair will actually improve as a result of the fortifying and conditioning nature of the product.

Can you color your hair the same day you receive a CHI Enviro American Smoothing Treatment?
Yes, however, you must color your hair prior to having the CHI Enviro American Smoothing Treatment smoothing treatment. If you are coloring hair dark brunette or red, you will want to color the hair a shade darker than you otherwise would, as the hair color will experience fading during the CHI Enviro American Smoothing Treatment.

Can you swim in the pool or ocean after you have the CHI Enviro American Smoothing Treatment?
Yes, you can swim in either the pool or the ocean after you receive the CHI Enviro American Smoothing Treatment, however, the treatment may be slightly compromised if you swim on a regular basis. We recommend that you apply the CHI Enviro American Smoothing Treatment Smoothing Serum on the hair prior to swimming in order to act as a protective barrier to maintain the smoothest possible result for the longest period of time.

How soon can you touch up your color after you receive the CHI Enviro American Smoothing Treatment?
You don’t have to wait at all.

How soon can I wash my hair after the CHI Enviro American Smoothing Treatment?
You are required to wash your hair 24 hours after the CHI Enviro American Smoothing Treatment, or as you would normally.

Can I receive the CHI Enviro American Smoothing Treatment if I have over-processed blonde hair? What if my hair is platinum blonde?
It is important for every stylist to assess the condition of the client’s hair to make sure it is in a healthy enough state to apply extreme heat through the use of a flat iron. If it is felt that the hair is in questionable condition, the recommendation is to turn the flat iron down from 450 degrees to approx. 380-420. The stylist will have to determine the appropriate amount of heat to apply.

Can you perform a CHI Enviro American Smoothing Treatment on extensions?
Yes, the CHI Enviro American Smoothing Treatment performs perfectly on hair extensions. It would be best for the stylist to perform the CHI Enviro American Smoothing Treatment separately on the extensions prior to putting them into the hair. If you wish to perform the treatment on extensions that are already in the hair, the stylist will need to be extremely careful when applying the solution to the bonded area. CHI Enviro American Smoothing Treatment solution acts as a conditioning agent, and may create slip resulting in the extensions separating from the hair. If the stylist is careful and works to first separate the extension hair from the client’s own hair, a great result can be achieved.

Can I receive a CHI Enviro American Smoothing Treatment if I am pregnant or breastfeeding?
There have been no clinical tests performed on the safety of performing the CHI Enviro American Smoothing Treatment on pregnant women or women who are breastfeeding. As a result, we do advise against pregnant or breastfeeding women receiving the CHI Enviro American Smoothing Treatment.

What is the active chemical in the CHI Enviro American Smoothing Treatment solution that makes it work so well?
The CHI Enviro American Smoothing Treatment smooths the hair through the use of a proprietary polymer system that bonds amino acids to the surface of the hair. This treatment is 100% salon safe. What makes the CHI Enviro American Smoothing Treatment effective is our use of the Super Nutrient Complex in conjunction with a proprietary polymer system. This combination is what rounds the follicle, smooths the cuticle and repairs any preexisting damage.

How is the CHI Enviro American Smoothing Treatment different from the Japanese straightening method many people are familiar with?
Japanese hair straightening changes the actual structure of the hair. In doing so, there is an obvious difference between the new hair growth and the hair that has been treated, resulting in a life-long commitment to continuing the straightener or cutting hair off (if client is unhappy with the result). This service can also leave the hair flat, too straight and with little to no shine or luster. The hair’s integrity seems to be compromised, and after a few treatments, the hair appears to be in an unhealthy state.
