Basically, looking after your Latino treatment at home means better results. To maintain results, you must use the Guava Latino Keratin Shampoos and Conditioners as directed. The unique Latino formula in these after-care products helps to smooth your hair and this process is vital for the longevity of the treatment.
To maximise the relaxing effect, leave the treatment in for 48 hours before your first wash. You can in fact rinse your hair on the same day as the treatment, but for coarser hair you may want to just leave it on for the full 48 Hours. We also recommend waiting 48 hours before using ties or bands in the hair. It just helps to ensure the hair stays kink and frizz free. It's worth noting that leaving the treatment in longer than 48 hours has no benefit to the hair either, as it stops working after the 48 hour time frame.
Absolutely not. Unlike some, formaldehyde is not an ingredient and nor is it a by-product of the smoothing process. All Guava Latino Keratin products are 100% formaldehyde free.
Yes, the Latino treatment can last up to 4 months.. Now, it's important to note that results can vary. It depends on the health of the hair, the application process itself and adherence to after-treatment care.
It sure does. We have carefully universalised the Latino™ Keratin Smoothing System. Put simply - there is no type of hair that Latino can not help smooth and repair. Coloured, bleached, relaxed or virgin - respecting the sensitivity and history of every hair type. In fact, the results can be more prolonged for fragile hair because the active components have a deeper, longer-lasting action.
Longer hair can take about 1.5 to 2.5 hours.
It is strongly recommended that you have all your colour services done AFTER the Guava Latino Treatment. If you have a colour treatment before hand, you risk the possibility of premature colour fading. For permanent colour treatments, a one week (7 day) break is essential. The quality and longevity of the Latino Smoothing System will be affected by pH exposure if the hair is not given the week to settle. Semi-permanent colours and toners can be done on the same day as the Latino treatment but still after the colour treatment.
The Latino treatment can be applied as soon as, every 20 days. Even though it can last up to 4 months, it is a smoothing and conditioning treatment. If maximum volume reduction is sought, multiple treatments can have a cumulative effect. It's up to you to decide how much smoothing you prefer.
It provides a professional 'salon-only' hair treatment that gives a smoothing effect to hair that can last up to 4 months. It also provides a deep nourishing treatment at the same time.
The treatment doesn't have any harmful components that would prevent application for pregnant or lactating women.
