Yes, another straightening system.

To my uninformed mind, this looks just like the BKT and seems to boost the same promises. I'm reading up on this system, but I can't say I'm completely sold or considering it. A beautician that does beautiful hair recommended it because I asked her about straightening my hair, and she told me about it.

TYPE 4 NATURAL WITH THE CHI SMOOTHING SYSTEM


A simple Q&A for background info:

Q: What is the CHI Enviro American Smoothing System?

A: This revolutionary treatment eliminates up to 95% of frizz, reduces curl and instantly adds amazing shine, silkiness and condition to the hair. It is a protein reconstructing complex with amino acids, proteins, silk and pearl to increase shine and strength. It is free from formaldehyde and formaldehyde-releasing chemicals. Its protein and amino acid complex allows temporary change in the structure of hair fibers, leaving hair easier to comb, as well as silkier, smoother and shinier hair.

Q: When can I color my hair?

A: Hair can be colored immediately following the smoothing treatment with Farouk Systems Ammonia Free colors.

Q: When can I shampoo my hair?

A: You may shampoo your hair 48 hours following the smoothing treatment. However, do not use pony tail bands, clippies, headbands or anything that would stifle the hair’s straight pattern for at least 48 hours following the treatment.

Q:How long will the results last?

A: Smoothing treatment results can last up to 4 months depending upon hair type and maintenance at home from client. It is recommended that customers use the CHI Enviro Home Care Maintenance Shampoo and Conditioner.

Q: How long does the treatment take to complete?

A: Average time is usually 2 hours. The length, density and amount of hair will determine the time spent during this service.

Q: How soon can customers do a touch up?

A: This hair straightening treatment can be given again after 4-6 weeks. It has no harmful chemicals. Only amino acids, proteins, silk and pearl are infused into the hair.

I don't know. I know they have beauticians that are licensed to do it through CHI, but in videos I saw people buying the kits. I haven't looked into doing it myself.

I feel the same way. I want to hear the long-term effects.

Here's a picture of 4a hair with the treatment. I think this would be ideal for naturals that would prefer to wear their hair straight majority of the time.

^^^^^Exactly what I was thinking. My hair already struggles to revert back right after I've only lightly pressed it.

And it does loosen the curl pattern significantly.

I don't know how I would deal. If I knew for a fact my curl pattern would revert back at the end of everything, I might not be hesitant to try it out. However, I don't know if that's the case. I like my kinks. LOL!

It sounds nice, but I don't like the idea of having to go back every 4-6 weeks for maintenance.
Seems too much like a regular relaxer.
