Instructions for Instant

1. Prep 

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

2. Dry 

  • Gently towel dry the hair to remove excess moisture. 

3. Application

  • Shake the product well before applying.
  • Section hair into 1-2 sections in front of each ear and 4-6 sections in the back of the head. 
  • Thicker hair will require more sections while finer hair will require fewer sections. 
  • Apply treatment by misting 5-6 sprays into each section until saturated.
  • Distribute the treatment evenly through each section by combing with a fine-tooth comb. 
  • To ensure complete coverage, comb the entire head again and reapply treatment to hairlines and porous ends.

3. Process

  • Leave the treatment to process at room temperature for 15 minutes for fine hair;  20 minutes for average to coarse hair.
  • It is safe to provide a haircut service or light trim during the processing time. 
  • No cap 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.
