I am so excited about this new technology coming to Canada. It isn't Methylene Glycol, Cysteine Synergy - which sadly many companies over-promised results and did not deliver. So much money wasted on products that didn't work. I am keeping a positive outlook as we wait for this. If it does what Lilly Balasanyan from Envy Professional Sherman Oaks California says it will do it will revolutionize the keratin treatment world here in Canada.

You may also apply a semi or demi-permanent color after rinsing to refresh the color if necessary before conditioning.
