Hair care is a billion dollar a year industry. Although hair color service is the leader of the industry, relaxers are a leading contender for chemical services. Multi-cultural and textured hair stand out in a category of its own, when it comes to finding ways to relax the hair cuticle. Knowing that multi-cultural hair is similar yet different from textured hair is a big plus. As a hair stylist you will come across every texture and hair type imaginable. To be a truly versatile stylist, you must be able to provide all chemical services desired by every client such as color, relaxers, perms and smoothing treatments.
The CHI Deep Brilliance Relaxer System is designed for highly textured and multi-cultural hair types. It is an ammonia-free relaxer system and when both the CHI Deep Brilliance Relaxer System and Hair Care products are combined, it offers clients beautiful and healthy options for smoothing curls and coils.
The CHI Deep Brilliance Relaxer System can perform safely with any CHI Color and lightening service, which are ammonia-free.
Both CHI Deep Brilliance Olive & Monoi Relaxer and Maintenance Line are a system of products with advanced formulas carefully blended together to provide superior moisture. Each product has a combination of unique ingredients to help strengthen, rejuvenate, protect and reverse damaged hair for the future.
Olive oil is considered a superior moisturizing agent because of its ability to penetrate the hair shaft while its rich emollients help to retain moisture in the hair by reaching the cortex and moisturizing from within.
The unique blend of Coconut Oil and Tiare Gardenia Flowers help repair fine and chemically-treated hair. The moisture provided by this unique blend helps in reversing damage and preventing future damage caused by thermal styling.
Natural conditioner derived from the nut of the Shea – Karite tree found in the tropics of East and West Africa. Its intense moisturizing properties are a rich source of vitamins and fatty acids that improves the health of hair and promotes a healthy scalp.

Silk proteins are able to penetrate and strengthen hair while reinforcing the strength and structure of weakened hair strands.

In the late 1800s, a man by the name of Garret A. Morgan was known to have created what we know today as a relaxer. Although, this has been reformulated over and over since the early 1900s, Farouk Systems has now created a healthier and more prestige formulation called CHI Deep Brilliance Olive & Monoi Silk Conditioning Relaxer.
This is a silk conditioning relaxer replacing other harsh relaxer systems on the market. CHI Deep Brilliance is known to gently relax the natural texture of the hair while maintaining its full integrity. It contains a rich blend of Silk, Olive Oil, Monoi Oil, and Shea Butter and has been developed for all hair types. It is extremely versatile and allows for multiple chemical services to be performed on the same day using CHI products.
As a well-rounded stylist knowing the clients coil patterns, texture and which chemical service is needed, is important. Generally, when using a relaxer system you are not able to color the hair in the same day. Yet, the CHI Deep Brilliance Relaxer System allows you to do just that, when matched with CHI colors or lighteners.
These are considered same day services. Below are a few of the colors and lighteners it can be paired with;
Hair relaxing rearranges the structure of curly hair, reforming it into a smoother and straighter texture. Relaxers permanently alter the structure of the hair. For the best chemical service, you must review the coil pattern of your clients’ hair. It can range from straight with a slight wave, known to stylist as a Type 1 to an undefined curl pattern known to stylist as a Type 4. This is a system that decodes all types of textured hair and derived from Oprah’s stylist, Andre Walker, in the late 1990s. This common way of characterizing textured hair is still being used today.
Let it curl!
“The CHI Deep Brilliance Olive & Monoi Hair Care System
is specifically formulated to care for highly-textured chemically processed hair.
The complete line provides full support for in-salon and home maintenance hair care.”
The hairs coil pattern is the shape of the hair strand. Most coiled hair has a fine texture, which makes the hair crisscross creating ununiformed patterns. It also has low elasticity and a tendency to knot easily.
Textured hair that is straight to slightly wavy can be considered Type 1A to 1C hair. It is shiner than other textures of hair and more manageable. Yet, it is harder for this type of hair to hold a curl without product use. It is recommended for most of these hair types to set the hair.
Normally, there is no need for a chemical straightening service to be performed. People who tend to have this hair type are often times Caucasians
Textured hair that is wavy is classified as Type 2A to 2C. The way that wavy hair is structured many say that it is dormant between straight and curly hair. The wave pattern may also differ from strand to strand, yet it is still oval in shape. The color can also play a role in the shape of the hair strand, see diagram 10 - 8. It also imparts sheen, more than curly hair, but less than straight hair. The further down the wavy spectrum you go the less sheen the hair will impart. Wavy hair is typically more prone to frizz. Type 2 A - C hair coils are wavy and can easily alternate from straight back to curly with styling unless a chemical service is performed.
Textured hair that is curly is considered Type 3A to 3C. By slightly pulling one strand of hair, you will notice that the strand resembles an S or Z pattern. However, the coil pattern is defined and similar to a new or stretched phone cord. People who tend to have this hair type are often times, Caucasians and Multi-Cultural races. Type 3 A - C hair is more resistant than type 1 and 2 hair coils.
Yet, it can still be styled from straight back to curly unless a chemical service is performed. This type of hair can become dull easily with the lack of moisture and proper maintenance.
Hair Type/ Coil Pattern is a 3A – This type of hair has an S shaped pattern and the boundary of the coil is the shape of
Hair Texture is Medium – The hair texture for type 3A hair can vary from fine to medium.
Highly Textured hair is considered extremely curly hair and ranges from 4A to 4C. There is a misconception that highly textured hair does not grow and is unmanageable.
This is far from the truth. Highly textured hair is considered fragile and delicate in nature. It needs careful a lot of moisture and a lot of attention to flourish. It shape is oval and flatter than other hair types. Type 4 A - C hair is more resistant than type 1 and 2 hair coils. It is harder to style without softening the cuticle. By gentle cleansing, extensive moisturizing and proper maintenance using products such as CHI Deep Brilliance (Deep Protein Masque Strengthening Treatment, Shine Serum and Light Weight Leave-In Treatment) on this type of hair is sure to make it flourish.
