The 24 Karat is a cream-based formula designed to straighten the hair while eliminating frizz and increasing shine and smoothness. This treatment also significantly boosts humidity resistance, allowing the hair to remain straight and smooth even in the most humid environments. The 24 Karat formula contains natural oils, such as Boabab Oil, Argan Oil, and Mineral oil, all of which work to condition the hair and add heat protection. Other ingredients, such as hydrolyzed keratin, hydrolyzed soy protein, and hydrolyzed collagen, transform dry and damaged hair into an unbelievably smooth and manageable texture.
This keratin treatment has been boosted to improve humidity protection, shine, hair smoothing, and straightening. Made with twice the amount of collagen than the original keratin treatment and with added ingredients such as Argan Oil and Soy Protein. Damaged hair will be transformed to an unbelievably shiny and manageable appearance.
Due to its composition, the keratin used in this treatment can be described as a hair identical protein. Compared to other proteins, this Keratin has a high proportion of cystine, which allows for a better affinity to hair structure. You can wash hair in 24 hours!

Starting at the nape of the neck, take out a thin section of hair and begin flat ironing that section from the roots to ends. Flat iron the same section six (6) to ten (10) times, depending on the strength and texture of the hair.
