To All Professional Hair Artists:
Today’s fashion dictates healthy, smooth, and shiny hair. Smooth hair is very desirable to most people, easier to work with for hair artists, and is easier to upkeep and maintain at home. Curly and frizzy hair takes more styling time and is more difficult to manage. It is my pleasure to share with you our latest invention called
CHI ENVIRO AMERICAN SMOOTHING TREATMENT.
This treatment is a revolutionary and safe treatment is formaldehyde-free, easy, simple and fast and can eliminate up to 95% of frizz, making curly hair more manageable. CHI Enviro will leave the hair healthier, stronger, and smoother while adding amazing shine.
CHI Enviro is formulated with amino acids, proteins, silk, and pearl. The combination of cysteine can synergize with hair’s natural cysteine by rearranging cysteine proteins in the hair’s natural fiber. There is no bond breaking with this product, only rearranging.
The new protein rearrangement can last up to 4 months by using the CHI Ceramic Hairstyling Iron set at 410°F sealing and bonding the hair to produce smooth, silky, strong, and shiny hair. I am proud of our research and development team, comprised of professional hair artists, chemists, a former NASA scientist, and others who worked hard for almost 2 years to fulfill hair artists’ dreams of an American Smoothing Treatment that is safe and simple.

With product still in the hair, use a round brush or paddle brush to blow dry the hair completely. This will start the sealing process.
Section hair into 4 sections and gently clip (use a plastic clip). Using the CHI Iron (4 button) begin pressing at the nape (this will begin the sealing process) using 1/4 subsections.
Press each section five times slowly from roots to ends, which allows the heat to penetrate and seal. Continue until entire head is finished.
