DIGITAL CURLING

A High-Tech Digital Shaping Treatment delivering soft curls is HERE!

Love the soft romantic curls seen on The Duchess of Cambridge, Cheryl Cole , Angelina Jolie, Catherine Zeta-Jones, and Kelly Brook? Now you can have it too! A new kind of Digital Curl now turns our fantasies into reality. This is an incarnation of the previously well-known Digital Perm.

The Digital Curl — so-called because of the sophisticated technology behind it — to ‘thermally recondition’ the hair by injecting precious hydro proteins onto the hair, allowing a technician to create whatever kind of texture at client desires, from loose waves to retro-style curls.


The Procedure

1. Shampooing/Relaxing & Injection of Hydro Proteins
After a consultation, hair is shampooed and a protective lotion is applied. After this comes a ‘relaxing’ solution, which contains many different precious water soluble hydro-proteins. Hair is then rinsed off later.

2. Hair set on Curlers
Wet hair is set on curlers — the size and number dictate the type of curls you end up with. The curlers are then plugged into a digital control unit to activate the chemicals, and for the next 40 minutes the hair is effectively set as the curls take hold.

3. Neutralising
Finally, a neutralising solution is applied for ten minutes, before the hair is rinsed, conditioned and styled. Do not wash hair for two days after having the treatment, but from then on, hair is easy to style.

4. Styling
Hair can be styled with a diffuser or fingers.

The average time between treatments is 4 – 9 months. Hair texture and speed of growth amongst other factors will determine the best time frame for you.

Usually between 4-5 hours but very long or dense hair may take longer.
Is there anything I should NOT do with my hair after treatment?
For 48 hrs you should not wash your hair, or do anything to your hair which you do not want to remain there, e.g. crimps from rubber bands, clips, hats etc. Do not colour your hair for at least 10 days.
