Smooth. Manageable. Shiny. SAFE: Urban Smooth Treatment

 100% Formaldehyde and Ammonia-Free.  

 Who is the perfect candidate for UST?

Men and women who want manageable hair for easy styling. Those who are looking for wash-and-go without worrying about humidity, and for those who wants intense shine and smoothness. Most importantly this is for you if you’re looking for the safest treatment for a naturally-straight look. It is not recommended for highlighted hair with bleach.


 How do I maintain UST?

Using a hydrating shampoo and nourishing conditioner is a must.  Hair in general is like wood. You need to lock in some moisture by waxing or oiling it so it won’t crack. The same thing applies for dealing with split ends.

 Root touch-ups are recommended every three to six months depends on how curly the length of your hair grows. It does not wear out after washes.

 In some cases, our guests return only once a year because they have long locks to weigh their re-growth down so it doesn’t grow as wavy or curly.

 When can I wash my hair after the treatment?

Anytime! If you wish to wash it after a day, or two days, there’s no restriction.  Once you finish the treatment, you can go straight to getting a blow-dry.

 What’s in it? 

The products we use are fortified with cationic conditioners that provide softness, shine, smoothing waxes for frizz-taming and detangling, and dithioglycolic acid that minimizes risk of breakage resulting in:

 

  • Ultimate straight, smooth results that last.
  • Volume and frizz-control, even in high humidity areas.
  • Thermally reconditioned hair that is softer, smoother and shinier than before the service.

 

How long does the treatment take?

From 2.5 to 4 hours. The amount of time to perform the service varies depeding on different type of curls and length of hair.  

 What do I need to do to my hair before my UST appointment.

Come in with dry hair.  Washing your hair before the treatment is not necessary.
