A scalp-and-hair examination determines the appropriate relaxer, which is applied and then thoroughly washed out with the aim to permanently straighten hair. A scalp-wellness treatment and conditioner cap off the service. The Global Keratin Juvexin treatment is a blend of proteins culled from free-range New Zealand sheep wool through an environmentally friendly process. The formula aims to make hair softer, frizz-free, and more manageable for up to five months.

Some hair-straightening products that claim to be formaldehyde-free include aldehyde compounds, which are similar to the carcinogen formaldehyde. Side effects may include nosebleeds, headaches, vomiting, and respiratory problems, among others. Learn more about the health risks here.

Essence VIP

Before Teresa Zeigler even grabs hold of a pair of scissors or mixes up a bowl of hair dye, she first takes the time to evaluate her clients' hair to determine the most beneficial styles and colors. She works from inside Essence VIP, an ethnic salon that specializes in black haircare. She also straightens manes with a variety of products, including Global Keratin Juvexin, and slathers scalp-wellness formulas onto heads to help alleviate the symptoms of alopecia, dandruff, and eczema.
