AGI One Silk Smoothing

THIS YEARS HOTTEST HAIR SMOOTHING SYSTEM
AGI ONE. IS FINALLY AVAILABLE AT ELYSIUM HAIR BRISBANE AND WE’VE GOT THE ANSWERS TO ALL OF THE BURNING QUESTIONS THIS MIRACLE TREATMENT HAS UNCOVERED.
TO START OFF, LET ME INTRODUCE AGI ONE TO THOSE WHO AREN’T FAMILIAR.
AGI ONE IS THE BEST THING TO HAPPEN TO HAIR SMOOTHING YET! IT’S UNIQUE TECHNOLOGY WORKS TO SMOOTH AND CONDITION HAIR BY RELEASING NANOPARTICLES DIRECTLY INTO AND ONTO THE HAIR SHAFT. THIS ENABLES THE TREATMENT TO BEGIN TO REPAIR THE HAIR FROM THE INSIDE (CORTEX) WHILE SIMULTANEOUSLY CREATING A PROTECTIVE FILM OVER THE OUTER LAYER (CUTICLE). CONSIDER IT A SMOOTHING SYSTEM WITH THE ADDED BENEFIT OF INTENSE HYDRATION.
SINCE ITS RELEASE AGI ONE HAS AMAZED CLIENTS AND HAIRDRESSERS WORLD WIDE. THE MOST COMMON QUESTION IS? “HOW?”
HOW IS AGI ONE DIFFERENT TO A TRADITIONAL KERATIN TREATMENT?
SIMPLE! THE MAIN DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE TWO IS THAT AGI ONE DOESN’T USE A KERATIN BASE TO CREATE ITS RESULTS. AGI ONE IS BASED ON SILK PROTEINS AND AMINO ACIDS TO AID THE HAIR AND ITS HEALTH.
HOW DOES THIS AFFECT HAIR COLOUR?
AGI ONE DOESN’T AFFECT CURRENT OR FUTURE COLOURS AT ALL. IN FACT, YOU CAN COLOUR IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE SERVICE WITHOUT FEAR OF AGI ONE LOSING ITS EFFECT, LONGEVITY OR INTENSITY.
HOW DOES THE TREATMENT WITHSTAND SWIMMING IN CHLORINATED/SALTWATER? DOES THIS SIGNIFICANTLY ALTER THE LONGEVITY FOR THE CLIENT?
WITH SWIMMING IN CHLORINATED/SALT WATER, IF THIS IS A FREQUENT OCCURRENCE WE DO RECOMMEND TAKING PRECAUTIONS SUCH AS SWIMMING CAP, WASHING HAIR AFTER ETC. OTHERWISE NO, THIS SHOULDN’T AFFECT LONGEVITY AT ALL IF TAKE HOME CARE IS BEING USED CORRECTLY.
IS SPECIFIC SHAMPOO REQUIRED?
THE AGI ONE TAKE HOME CARE IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED 
DOES IT CONTAIN FORMALDAHYDE
AGI ONE IS FORMALDEHYDE FREE
IS IT GOING TO IMPROVE THE CONDITION?
AGI ONE UNIQUE TECHNOLOGY SMOOTHS, REPAIRS AND CONDITIONS THE HAIR BY RELEASING NANO PARTICLES INTO THE HAIR SHAFT TO REPAIR FROM THE INSIDE OUT
WILL IT IRRITATE MY SCALP?
NO IT WILL NOT IRRITATE THE SCALP AS WE ARE NOT APPLYING THE PRODUCT TO THE SCALP
IS IS PLANT OR CHEMICALLY BASED? 
IT IS PLANT BASED, IT CONTAINS COCONUT OIL WHICH ADDS HYDRATION TO THE HAIR
WHAT DO I HAVE TO DO AFTER I HAVE THE TREATMENT?
JUST WASH AND STYLE YOUR HAIR AS YOU NORMALLY DO HOWEVER IF YOU DO USE THE TAKE HOME SHAMPOO & CONDITIONER AND MAYBE THE THERMAL SPRAY IT WILL PROLONG THE EFFECT
CAN I USE BLOW-DRYERS AND STRAIGHTENERS?
YES YOU CAN USE BOTH HOWEVER THE TIME SPENT USING YOUR IRON WILL BE DRAMATICALLY CUT
CAN I USE MY USUAL HAIR STYLING PRODUCTS?
 YES 100% YOU CAN AND THEY WILL NOT BREAK DOWN THE EFFECT OF THE PRODUCT.
DOES THE TREATMENT ‘FADE’ OUT OR GROW OUT?
THE TREATMENT ACTS SIMILARLY TO A KERATIN IN THIS WAY AS YOU WON’T FIND ANY FRIZZY “REGROWTH” LIKE YOU WOULD WITH A CHEMICAL STRAIGHTEN, THE EFFECTS OF THE SYSTEM WILL SLOWLY FADE OVER TIME.
ALTHOUGH IT DEFRIZZ’ DOES IT SIGNIFICANTLY STRAIGHTEN?
ON CERTAIN HAIR TYPES WE HAVE SEEN SIGNIFICANT RELAXING OF CURLS AND KINKS BUT WE DON’T RECOMMEND AGI ONE IS YOU WANT A VERY STRAIGHT RESULT
IS THIS SUITABLE FOR ALL HAIR TYPES?
YES! AGI ONE HAS SPECIALLY FORMULATED THREE SOLUTIONS FOR A BROAD SPECTRUM OF HAIR TYPES. THIS IS MADE EVEN BETTER BY THE FACT THAT THEY ARE INTERMIXABLE! THREE SOLUTIONS, ZERO RESTRICTIONS.
CAN I HAVE AGI ONE WHEN I HAVE A HAIRCUT AND/OR COLOUR?
YES! NO NEED TO WAIT YOU CAN DO THIS SERVICE AT THE SAME TIME
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
IT TAKES 1.5 - 3 HOURS DEPENDING ON THE LENGTH AND THICKNESS OF YOUR HAIR
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST
THE COST IS BASED ON THE LENGTH OF TIME AND PRODUCT REQUIRED AND RANGES FROM $247 - $440

Keratins are naturally occurring proteins that make up 70-80% of our hair. As we mature and chemically alter our hair, we can lose a substantial amount of natural keratin, leaving it dull, frizzy, coarse and unmanageable. Guava Latino's blend of keratin proteins and unique amino acids penetrate deep into the hair as well as coat the cuticle layer. It works through disulfide bond realignment, but doesn't damage the essential hair fibre.
Unlike some keratin-based smoothers, Guava Latino Keratin replenishes the condition of the hair without changing or damaging its molecular structure. It's a highly effective yet safe formula that provides the maximum amount of hair smoothing, without any trace of formaldehyde. That's right... it's 100% formaldehyde free. 
BE WARNED 
Some keratin smoothing products are claiming to be formaldehyde free but the truth is that trace elements of this chemical can be generated during the hair smoothing process. The new Guava Latino in salons now has 0% formaldehyde, nor is any trace of formaldehyde released at the time of the treatment or after the treatment is done.

Preparation And Aftercare

BEFORE X-TENSO: BOOKING A HAIR SMOOTHING APPOINTMENT.
Always remember not to shampoo hair 2 to 3 days before the hair smoothing appointment; the stimulating effect of shampooing could cause scalp irritation when the cream is applied. Do not pre-condition the hair at least two days before the appointment, because the ingredients in some reconditioning products are oils which coat the hair and inhibit penetration of the TR solution, causing TR failure. Detangle your hair and leave it in its natural state. Do not swim during the 72 hours preceding the hair smoothing treatment, it could cause scalp irritation. Do not exercise 12 hours before the service. If you drink coffee before the service, make sure to drink lots of water. Do not wear a tight cap, scarf or anything that “causes pressure” on the scalp 24 hours prior to the appointment. Do not wear a style that “creates tension” on the scalp or along the hairline such as ponytails and pullbacks. In each of these cases, the scalp would be more sensitive to the chemicals and liable to become irritated. On appointment day remove all neck jewellery and earrings.
AFTER X-TENSO: MAINTAINING THE BEAUTY OF YOUR SMOOTHES HAIR.
You may think your service is now complete, but the procedure is not yet over. The hair still needs to absorb more oxygen and will do so naturally through the air. A rainstorm, an overly humid day or even a steamy shower stall could dramatically affect the smoothing success—your hair could have some reversion to its straight state or you may get strange bits of hair doing weird things that they are not suppose to be doing. The hair is very susceptible to reverting to its naturally curly/wavy state if it gets wet before the solution has completely oxidized from the inner structure of the hair, even though chemically we might assume it is fixed. After you leave the salon, it is imperative not to brush your hair aggressively or tucking hair behind your ears for 72 hours. Do not shampoo or wet your hair for 72 hours after the smoothing service. No workout for 72 hours after the smoothing service. This is to allow your hair to completely neutralize into the current shape. It takes approximately 72 hours for the hair to harden and lock into its new straight position. Immediately after a chemical smoothing treatment the hair will be chemically altered and in a softened condition and it can easily be damaged. That means no clips, pins, metal clips or clips with teeth, rubber bands, barrettes, pony tails, pullbacks for 7 days. Do not wear a style that “creates tension” on the hair or along the hairline such as, ponytails and pullbacks for 7 days. Do not use anything that “causes pressure” on the hair such as, tight cap or scarf for 7 days. If you put your hair in ponytails try to use a coated rubber band or soft cloth hair scrunchies. The hair should not be constricted in any way for 7 days after a chemical hair smoothing service. This gives hair time to become firmly established and recover. Do not shower with hot water. Always use warm water, not too hot not too cold. Do not use sulphur/tar base anti-dandruff shampoos. Do not swim in chlorinated pools, seawater or expose your hair to too much Sun for at least 2 weeks after the X-Tenso service. If your hair gets wet accidentally within the first 72 hours; blow-dry the hair nozzle pointing downward towards the ends of hair. Keep the blow dryer moving instead of leaving it in one spot, and then gently Slide the flat iron at low temperature (130C). If you notice a crease that’s caused from sleeping/sweating within the first 72 hours; blow-dry the hair and Slide the iron gently to remove the crease. If for the first 3 days after the X-Tenso service the prevailing weather condition is rainy and humid; finger blow-dry your hair by giving it short blasts of hot air and finish with cool air. Do this in the morning, daytime, if possible and just before bedtime. This will help remove the excess moisture from the hair.
