Are you Smooth?

Are you Smooth?

Interlocks introduced two new services, and we’re truly excited about being able to offer them. The first is,  “Amino Express, Smooth & Lock.” Let us tell you about it, so you can share our enthusiasm!

This treatment will:

  1. Reduce texture & volume up to 50%
  2. Lock-in hair color & protect color vibrancy
  3. Repair hair integrity & elasticity
  4. Repel humidity
  5. Deter color fade & intensify shine
  6. Smooth waves & tame frizz
  7. Provide better manageability, reducing blowdry & styling time
  8. Last up to 4 weeks!

Oh, and the best part, is right in the name, EXPRESS! That’s right. In a mere 45 minutes you can leave here rockin’ a new smoother ‘do.

By way of background information, Interlocks has never offered any of the straightening treatments (marketed under many names including Keratin and Brazilian). Although these treatments were highly requested, there are numerous studies about their health risks, and because of this, Interlocks remained unwilling to offer these treatments for fear of putting staff and clients at risk.  Now, we are thrilled to have trained our stylists on this new approach that is 100% formaldehyde-free, and the treatment not only smooths hair, but also improves manageability.

For best results and to maximize the length of time your smooth hair will last, we recommend purchasing the Thermafuse Smooth Balance Shampoo and Conditioner. If you plan on continuing to flat iron your hair at home, we also recommend the One Pass Smoothing Cream, which seals the hair cuticle and locks in vital moisture.

This express treatment is used by hair professionals only. Our Salon Team received extensive training on the service, which starts with a shampoo and the application of amino spray.  The special spray works with the synergy of bio-compatible acids that fuse naturally with the hair fiber.  The hair is then flat-ironed, which seals in the treatment.  Clients are asked not to wash their hair for 24 hours to allow the treatment to set.  Doesn’t that sound easy? Who knew that a little heat could help so much?  Apparently the good folks at Thermafuse.

Kelly Sargent and Sarah LaPoint are already already trained and offering the Amino Fusion Smoothing Treatment that is semi-permanent. This non-express treatment is a 3-hour service recommended for clients who would like a more advanced treatment for unruly waves or frizz, the results can last up to three months. The rest of our stylists will be certified on March 25th and will begin to offer the service to their clients soon after.

Please talk to your stylist about these new services so you can choose which one is right for you!
