There are a couple of avenues for submitting intentions/application to become a member of the Thermafuse Education Team. You may contact your local DSC and/or distributor, contact Chip Kouri – National Education Director (firstname.lastname@example.org), and by completing the educator application located under the “Professionals” tab.
Yes, it is preferred. smooth balance Shampoo and Condition have been specifically formulated with amino acids to maintain the amino fusion® Smoothing Treatment. In addition, Cuticle Fusion Complex® will help control frizz and keep hair smooth and shiny between smoothing treatments.
Yes. In the short term, swimming in a chlorinated pool, or the ocean, will not reverse the smoothing effect of an amino fusion treatment. Daily swimming may slightly shorten the life of the treatment over the long term. After swimming we suggest rinsing the hair with fresh water to remove chlorine and/or salt water.
Before applying heat, check directions and see if flat iron temperature corresponds to the type of hair being serviced. Some smoke is to be expected. Excessive smoke may be a result of over-saturating hair with smoothing treatment.
The answer is Yes. Please take into consideration that you will be highlighting chemically treated hair. amino fusion does make the hair look and feel better, but the disulfide bonds have been restructured. Therefore, general highlighting precautions for chemically treated hair should prevail. It’s safe to say you can use up to 20 volume peroxide, but anything more and you should wait a week or two. Also, when using a toner or a semi or demi color after AFST, you may need to increase processing time to allow it to penetrate since the cuticle is sealed so tightly.
We recommend that an amino fusion Smoothing Treatment service be performed “before” color application.
Flat ironing sections larger bigger than ¼ inch could interfere with achieving best results. Sealing/smoothing with the flat iron should be directional to the way the client wears their hair. However, the client will be able to produce volume or curls by styling their hair for that effect.
No need to cover head. Generally hair will remain moist for entire processing period. Hair, mostly ends in poor condition, may absorb smoothing treatment. This will not affect outcome. Do not re-apply.
amino fusion was developed to be used with higher heat settings, ensuring predictable performance in the fewest number of passes with the flat iron. There may be situations when the condition of hair is too delicate to withstand high temperatures, in which case a smoothing treatment should be delayed until hair condition improves. Testing and experience indicates that amino fusion works best at temperatures of 400⁰ F and higher, within instruction guidelines.
Testing and experience has also revealed that ceramic plate flat irons produce the best results. Titanium plates get too hot and color may have a tendency to adhere to the plates. They also have been shown to cause stripes on the hair if irregular and staggered passes are made over the hair during the smoothing/sealing steps. It puts a line on the hair every place you pause. Make one smooth motion with the flat iron in the direction the client will wear their hair.
You are in luck. We are pleased to announce the launch of f450⁰ amino fusion® Smoothing Treatment. This is a professional salon treatment that will smooth wavy, frizzy and un-ruly hair that will last up to 12 weeks. And it is 100% formaldehyde- free and Keratin-free!! See the promotion on this fabulous new product in this bi-monthly promo brochure.
Yes, completely safe. The smoothing effect is temporary allowing complete styling flexibility from day-to-day. one pass is 100% formaldehyde-free and contains no harsh chemicals. In addition, it contains Cuticle Fusion Complex® to help the hair withstand styling temperatures up to 450⁰F.
The ph of f450⁰ one pass Hot Iron Activated smoothing crème is 4.5, which puts it in the neutral range. The ingredient that is creating all the smoothing qualities is the new Cuticle Fusion Complex®, which is made up of sustainable organic botanicals and extracts that are known to withstand high heat, retain moisture and are beneficial for the hair.
No. When using f450⁰ one pass, you will choose the proper temperature of the iron based on the client's hair type and condition. For example, you would use a lower temperature on highly processed hair than you would on virgin hair.
ThermaCare® Leave-In Condition is a great solution for protecting haircolor from the harsh, damaging effects of sun exposure. ThermaCare contains UV light absorbers to combat color fading as it improves hair condition. ThermaCare may be sprayed into wet hair before styling and reapplied throughout the day on dry hair to protect and close the cuticle. It should also be sprayed into hair prior to swimming in a chlorinated pool to block the greenish cast, especially in blonde hair.
Definitely. HeatSmart Serum Dry Oil Treatment is great for the hair! When added to color or bleach solutions the result is richer, healthier, shinier hair. The formula is: 2 pumps from 10 oz. HeatSmart Serum to a 3 oz. application of color or bleach. Process as normal.
Using a specific shampoo and condition duo formula together produces the greatest desired result, but the shampoos and conditions may be mixed and matched to create a customized hair care regimen. Address the main issue of the hair with the shampoo and the secondary issue with the condition. For example, a color-treated redhead with fine, limp hair could use Color Care Shampoo and Volume Condition.
The new HeatSmart Serum® Shampoo and Condition have been developed specifically for this client. Not only does this luxurious duo contain all of the healing benefits of HeatSmart Serum, we have also added extra protein to both products to combat dryness, breakage, and calm over-stressed conditions. The hair imparts a lustrous, reflective, healthy look and feel.
The Volume Shampoo and Volume Condition formulas have been refined to reflect advancements in volume-building technology. Both “weightless” formulas integrate new, low molecular weight amino acids that penetrate each strand to strengthen and build volume from within, naturally. And, you will also notice Volume Shampoo is now clear. Aside from these Volume improvements, all other products remain as the same great formulas you have come to know and love.
