2019 Salon Opener Box

1. Prep

  • Wash hair twice with Cezanne Clarifying Shampoo.
  • Do not over stimulate the scalp or use conditioner. 

2. Dry 

  • Set blow dryer to medium heat with high air flow and blow dry with a vent brush or fingers until 100% dry.

3. Application 

  • Shake product and place 1-2 ounces (30-60ml) into a non-metallic bowl. Add more treatment into the bowl as needed.  
  • Section the hair into 4 quadrants. 
  • Starting at the nape,  use the Cezanne Application Brush to gently dab treatment 1/4” (6.35mm) from the scalp, midshaft, and the ends in medium 1/2” (12.7mm) sections. 
  • Massage treatment into hair with fingers.
  • Distribute the product with a fine-tooth comb before adding it to sections already completed below. 
  • You will know you are using enough treatment if you have a small bead treatment left on your comb, if you have more than a small bead, you have used too much. This extra treatment can be used on the next section. 
  • Work your way up the head, repeating the application until the entire head is completely saturated with treatment.
  • To ensure complete coverage, comb the entire head again and reapply treatment to hairlines and porous ends.

3. Process

  • Let the treatment at room temperature for 30 minutes. 
  • No cap is needed. 

4. Rinse

  • Rinse with lukewarm water and low pressure. Do not use shampoo or conditioner
  • Depending on hair type and texture, rinse for 20-180 seconds leaving a small amount of residue in the hair - a little bit more than the “slip” you would feel from a deep conditioning treatment.
  • Place the nozzle directly onto the scalp when rinsing, moving it around the head and focusing on the nape area.
  • If the ends are porous, hold them out of the water until you’re almost finished rinsing.

5. Blowout 

  • Do a meticulous blowout with the blow-dryer set on medium heat with high airflow (higher heat may be needed for coarse/resistant hair). If the hair is really wet, use a vent brush or your fingers to remove extra water.
  • The hair should feel like it has texture spray in it. If the hair seems gummy or heavy, take the client back to the bowl and rinse again.
  • Use a round brush or paddle brush to get hair as smooth as possible making sure to get the hair 100% dry.
  • The better the blow-dry, the less flat ironing you’ll need to do to get hair silky.

6. Smoothing 

  • Flat iron meticulously using an average heat setting of 380-410 F (193-210 C). For a high-lift blonde or someone with very damaged hair, start at the lowest heat setting and work your way up to a safe heat.
  • Starting in the nap ready, take small 1/2" sections, concentrate at the roots and flat iron until hair is silky, which indicates that the hair is sealed with treatment. On average, each section requires 3 passes with a flat iron to seal the hair (coarse/resistant hair may need more passes with a flat iron).
  • To complete the service, give your client a quick trim or haircut to refresh the ends!

After Care

  • Your client can wash their hair, swim, go to the gym, or wear clips and ponytails immediately.  
  • Send your client home with the Cezanne Perfect Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner for proper maintenance. 
  • You should recommend Cezanne Leave In Perfector Spray for clients who blow-dry or flat iron their hair.
