Unique Step FAQ 2
WHAT ARE BENEFITS OF THE UNIQUE STEP PROTEIN SMOOTHING BRUSH?
By wrapping up the hair cuticles, the product effectively removes frizz, smoothens even the thick hair and creates a beautiful long-lasting shine.
HOW LONG DOES THE EFFECT LAST?
It varies from one case to another but the typical duration is 3-5 months. The Unique Step produces an accumulative effect: the more you use it, the silkier and softer your hair becomes.
CAN THE UNIQUE STEP CAUSE ANY ALLERGIC REACTIONS?
It is most unlikely that it will. However, it is recommended to test it with the already weakened hair first. The product must be sealed with a flat iron so this may lead to a different outcome for the hair previously exposed to and weakened by the chemical treatment.
DOES THE UNIQUE STEP AFFECT MY COLOR?
Yes, a keratin shampoo combined with a high temperature can alter the blonde color to a more yellowish shade. To avoid this, set your iron flat to no more than 450ºF.
IS THE UNIQUE STEP AN EQUAL ALTERNATIVE TO THE SALON KERATIN TREATMENTS?
Yes, it can be an excellent alternative in a number of cases.
HOW TO USE UNIQUE STEP AFTER COLORING?
Not right after. It is recommended to wait for no less than forty-eight hours. That way your new color will seal better and the product will not interfere with it.
IS IT A POSSIBLE DO A PROTEIN TREATMENT ON BLEACHED HAIR?
It's not recommended to use the product on hair that was bleached less than 3 weeks prior.
