First, when the product is applied it smoothes out the texture of hair. This transformation is attained in the first use. This smoother texture is achieved by flattening the cuticle scales on the hair shaft. Kinky hair’s cuticle scales are opened or raised, giving the shaft a rougher texture, as a result the hair looks rough and dry. ...Smoother textures such as straight and curly have cuticle scales that are flatter giving the shaft a smoother appearance and therefore a smoother texture. The texture of hair is influenced by the degree to which the cuticle scales lay flat or raised. When applied Sebum Protection combined with the warmth of the hands changes the way the cuticle scales lay, the results are a smoother softer hair texture. When the hair is shampooed the cuticle scales go back to normal, so the change is not permanent. These changes are physical and not chemical.
The second way the product works is it improves your hair texture every time you use it. Even when the product is washed out new curl patterns can be seen that weren’t there before, because after regular and continued use the cuticle scales will begin to stay semi flat, even when the product is absent from the hair.
The third way the water proof formula works is to protect all three layers of the hair from harm.
This product is 100% chemical free, and the changes are merely physical. It does not penetrate the inner layers of the hair, rather is stays on the outside of the hair shaft. The thick water proof formula goes on smooth and acts as an armor to protect the hair. The opened cuticle scales on kinky hair textures leave the hair vulnerable to damage in many ways. Water can get into the layers of the hair through the scales and dry the hair out, alcohols and other substances from hair products can all penetrate the hair, except when the cuticle layers are flattened. The sun, wind and chlorine are also elements that can cause drying. Sebum Protection™ closes the cuticle so it becomes impermeable. This keeps hair’s natural moisture in and damage causing agents out.
The fourth way it works is to coat the cuticle, so the hair is less susceptible to breakage. When applied the non greasy thick formula works like a lubricant to lessen friction. The outer layer becomes enclosed by a rich layer of protection. So when your finger through your hair all you will feel is smooth, soft, strong hair.
