Curl diffusion, also caleed chemical-blowout, is a technique used:
to reduce the curl in overly curly hair
The function of a curl activator is to provide moisture and:
helps retain shape of the new curl configuration
The physical phase of a chemical relaxing treatment includes smoothing the hair, rinsing the product from the hair and applying:
neutralizer or neutralizing shampoo
Rearrangers are used during a curl reformation process to reduce the natural curl. What is the main ingredient found in rearrangers?
Which relaxer strength would be used on healthy, color-treated, fine-textured or porous hair?
The most common ingredient found in products that completely straighten the hair is:
What product should NOT be applied to hair that has been previously permed with ammonium thioglycolate?
sodium hydroxide relaxer
What is the name for a chemical service designed to change overly curly hair to curly or wavy hair?
curl reforming(soft curls)
When performing a virgin relaxer, it is necessary to apply the product to the base last since the body heat near the scalp will cause the hair
process more quickly
Which of the following tests should be performed during a relaxer technique to determine if the proper amount of relaxation has occured?
Which of the following conditions would prevent you from performing a chemcial relaxing service?
A sodium hydroxide relaxer service should not be performed on:
hair that has been pre-lightened(bleached)
What should you do before applying any chemicals to the client's hair?
complete a client consultation
Super, strength relaxer is used for which of the following hair conditions?
tightly curled, coarse-textured hair
Which of the following is NOT a step taken when performing a virgin sodium hydroxide relaxer service?
pre shampoo the client's hair
Which type of hair color can be applied after a sodium hydroxide relaxer service?
semi-permanent hair color
When performing a curl reformation service, the rod diameter chosen should be at least how many times larger than the diameter of the natural curl pattern?
Once the hair is completely wrapped and saturated in a curl reforming service, apply additional:
What do sodium hydroxide relaxers contain to protect the hair and scalp from irritation?
oil and conditioning agents
An acid-balanced neutralizing shampoo or stabilizer is used after the hair is free of chemicals to:
reharden the hair
A good predictor of how your client's hair will react to the chemical rearranger, booster, and neutralizer is a:
preliminary strand test
During a chemical relaxer procedure, if the hair is tested with the back of the comob and there is a minimal amount of indentation, or if the curl pattern reverts or beads, what step may be required?
If curl reforming is desired, cut off all hair previously treated with which of the following?
Do not perform a curl reformation service on hair that has been relaxed with a sodium hydroxide or no-lye relaxer.
The chemical phase of relaxing consists of smoothing/combing the hair and timing and testing the process.
Never apply a thio relaxer over hair that has been relaxed with a sodium hydroxide relaxer or vice versa, since these two chemicals are not compatible and severe damage or breakage can occur.
Spreading the chemical relaxer through the hair with the back of a comb or your fingers as it processes is called smoothing.
When performing a curl reformation service, the rod diameter chosen is generally at least two times larger than the diameter of the natural curl pattern.
Do not apply sodium hydroxide relaxer to hair that has been colored with permanent hair color or to lightened hair.
During a relaxer application, it is important to use an acid-balanced neutralizing shampoo or stabilizer to reharden the hair into its new, straight shape.
Curl reformating is a chemical service designed to change overly curly hair to curly or wavy hair.
The type of relaxer service performed only in selected areas of the head is known as a retouch relaxer service
During a curl reformation procedure, in order to reduce the hair's natural curl, a perm solution is applied to the hair.
