Blow-drying, flat ironing, curling; all of these involve extreme heat blasted and pressed directly onto the hair. The kind of heat that will melt plastic and burn through just about anything it touches, and yet we put our hair through it to style it. Well, no worries! Now I'd like to introduce you to a great line of products by CHI. (Cationic Hydration Interlink)
These products are especially geared to protect and restore hair that has been or will be treated with heat such as blow drying, flat ironing and curling. The CHI infra treatment system consists of the INFRA SHAMPOO, INFRA TREATMENT, 44 IRON GUARD and SILK INFUSION. Used together, these products will restore hair damaged by excessive heat and thermal styling.
To start, the INFRA SHAMPOO (moisture therapy shampoo) restores your hair's PH balance. It provides a balance of moisture and proteins for strength and can be used on a daily basis.
After shampooing, use the INFRA TREATMENT, which is a thermal protective treatment. This is a superior moisturizing and protective treatment, which provides strength and restores shine. This treatment is to be left on 5 to 10 minutes and rinsed out.
Next, the hair can be blow-dried safely or air-dried. Once the hair is dried, 44 IRON GUARD should be used before any farther thermal styling. The 44 IRON GUARD is a thermal protection spray. With the power of ceramic, it provides superior heat protection from the inside out. It protects against styling and finishing damages from the hottest heat tools. IRON GUARD should be sprayed evenly throughout dry hair. Let dry 2 minutes and proceed to use your hot tool from roots to ends.
Lastly, the SILK INFUSION is a silk reconstructing complex used after the thermal styling. The SILK INFUSION has tiny silk fibers that wrap around each hair and seal the cuticle, adding protection and shine. A small amount should be worked the hair with your hands. This is a fantastic product because it quenches dry ends, making the hair look healthy and shiny.
This product line works best together but can also be used separately. You can add 44 IRON GUARD to your current hair care routine to protect the hair from hot tools. Also the SILK INFUSION product can be used throughout the day to control frizz and add beautiful shine for the hair.
All these great products can be used on color and chemically treated hair and are a great way to protect your mane from the effects of thermal styling and even the sun's harmful rays
