How does ISOamine work?
The hair's cuticle layer is negatively charged. Thio, the compound found in many traditional perms, is also negatively charged; therefore, when using a conventional perming system, the hair shaft rejects or repels, forcibly lifting the cuticle to allow penetration of the hair. In contrast, ISO Option Waves utilizes ISOamine, a positively charged compound that is attracted to the hair, thus allowing it to penetrate gently without damaging the cuticle. By penetrating deeper and more evenly than thio, ISOamine waves yield excellent curl results with minimal damage to the cuticle.
Do ISO Option Waves have a strong odor?
ISO Pre-Wrap, included in every box of Option 1, Option 2, and Option 3, is formulated with chlorophyll, the green pigment present in all green plants and algae that makes photosynthesis possible. As a natural deodorizer, it has a unique molecular composition that allows it to penetrate the hair shaft and absorb and reduce the odor released during the waving process.
Note: Chlorophyll has a green tint to it that will rinse completely from the hair.
