Prior to Virgin Application
Prior to the relaxer service DO NOT shampoo the hair! Before applying the CHI Deep Brilliance Olive & Monoi Silk Conditioning Relaxer prepare the hair and scalp by following the below. Always wear gloves.
Apply CHI Deep Brilliance Olive & Monoi Soothe & Protect Hair & Scalp Protective Cream around the hairline and on the scalp area.
Section out ½” perimeter around the entire hairline around the head. Section the hair from ear to ear through apex and front hairline to nape to create 4 sections.
For porous hair spray the hair with CHI Keratin Mist to equalize the porosity prior to the relaxer service.
Outline the quadrant by applying the relaxer ½” away from the scalp.
Use ¼” (6.35 mm) subsections and apply the relaxer thoroughly on both sides by using an application brush staying ½” away from scalp. DO NOT apply directly to scalp.
If hair is porous stay ¾” (19.05 mm) away from the ends
After finishing the application on all 4 sections, start to apply to the root area staying 1/8” away from scalp.
On porous hair apply to ends at this time.
Begin applying relaxer to perimeter area around entire head. DO NOT comb the hair!
Determine processing time based on hair type and previous chemical services. Timing and generator volume depend on the natural tinted level, texture condition, and porosity of the hair. DO NOT exceed maximum processing times, timing is always approximate. DO NOT use heat. Please refer to the manual for the product you will be utilizing along with the relaxer for more information on timings.
|Hair Type||Maximum Processing Time|
|Color Treated/ Highlighted||Up to 10 Minutes|
|Fine||Up to 13 Minutes|
|Medium||Up to 15 Minutes|
|Coarse||Up to 18 Minutes|
Check the relaxation of the hair in 3 different places by isolating the hair with fingers at least every 3 minutes. If desired relaxation has been achieved, start the rinsing procedure.
* Note: The nape area can be rinsed to allow the front section to continue processing until uniform relaxation has been achieved.
Rinse the hair thoroughly with warm water for at least 5 minutes.
Make sure that all traces of relaxer have been thoroughly rinsed away, paying special attention to nape and hairline areas.
Shampoo the hair with CHI Deep Brilliance Olive & Monoi Neutralizing Shampoo. CHI Deep Brilliance Olive & Monoi Neutralizing Shampoo will indicate where the relaxer has not been completely rinsed out by producing a pink lather. If pink lather is seen, rinse again and shampoo with CHI Deep Brilliance Olive & Monoi Neutralizing Shampoo until the lather is white.
Apply CHI Deep Brilliance Olive & Monoi Deep Protein Masque for 5 minutes.
Rinse and towel dry.
After completing the relaxer service follow the below formulation for double and triple processing instructions.

Apply formulation 2 to the rest of the un-foiled hair by taking ¼” subsections, staying 1/8” away from the scalp throughout the head following the virgin color application method.
Process at room temperature for up to 30 minutes.
CAUTION:As with similar products, keep hair away from open flame. Keep out of reach of children.
