hair straightening gap works to allow the natural negative ion clusters break water molecule
into micro particles thus allowing the formula penetrates the hair shaft. In this fashion, the hair
is straightened without breaking its internal structure. Ion with this hair straightening system,
you can eliminate the use of sodium hydroxide or guanidine hydroxide.
This formula must be used together with an iron of Ion-Retexturing to deliver natural negative
ions to hair. With this system, the hair shaft is well hydrated and improves the tensile strength
of hair and leave retextured and rejuvenated.
