Experienced stylist Becki Bryce lavishes personal attention on coifs with the Chi Enviro American Smoothing Treatment, whose formaldehyde-free formula tames curly or unruly strands for up to four months. The system supplies hair with amino acids, proteins, and hypnotic whispers, adding shine and silkiness as it eliminates up to 95% of frizz. During the 90-minute appointment, Becki applies the smoothing treatment and locks in the formula's bonding power with a flat iron. Patrons leave the salon with a take-home kit that includes Chi shampoo, conditioner, and a silk serum to help to keep tresses as smooth as Tony Bennett on ice skates.
