Healthy Hair must have a consistent balance of Protein, Oil and Moisture.   Protein is the main way to strengthen, repair and restore damage that may occur in the hair.  A Protein treatment is not a deep conditioning treatment.  Protein Conditioners come in liquid and cream forms.  Our favorite At-Home Protein recommendations are Joico K-Pak Conditioner and Moroccan Oil Restorative Hair Mask.  Leave on the Protein treatment for 20 to 45 minutes for optimum results.  After rinsing the treatment out use a Moisturizing Conditioner to balance the hairs’ PH level and soften the hair.

The Design Essentials STS Express Treatment

Your Hair Will Love the Design Essentials STS Express Treatment. Here’s Why!
Are you looking for ways to keep your hair smooth, silky, and shiny? If you’re struggling with frizzy, multi-textured hair or you’re making the amazing transition from chemically treated to natural hair, the new and improved Design Essentials® STS Express System is just what your hair needs. This one-of-a-kind, amazing hair care treatment maximizes your hair’s manageability and helps your hair hold onto long-lasting style. Not only that, it strengthens hair and helps repair existing hair damage.

You’ll enjoy up to twelve weeks of intensely smooth, incredibly shiny hair that does more than look healthy, it is healthy. We’re proud to offer you the proven benefits and amazing results of the Design Essentials® STS Express System. It’s a fast, easy smoothing and thermal therapy system. Packed with nourishing amino-acid, the STS Express Smoothing System is as easy as 1-2-3 and has the following healthy hair benefits:

• Long lasting smoothness
• Powerful frizz protection
• Improved manageability
• Proven safe and effective
• Formaldehyde free
• Works on all hair textures

Check Out the video to see the system in action!

Here’s How the System Works:
Step One – Cleanse
This step gently cleanses and purifies the hair and thoroughly removes impurities from the scalp. This critical first step also prepares the hair to receive and absorb the benefits of the STS treatment. We’ll start by carefully shampooing with the STS shampoo. Then, we towel dry hair and detangle with a wide toothed home being careful to remove all snags and snarls. The best way to detangle your hair is to start from the bottom and work carefully up to the scalp. Once your hair is completely detangled, we part it into four sections and secure each section with a clip.

Step Two – Treat
The treatment step is where hair receives the amino acid based therapy mouse that temporarily smooths and straightens the hair. It’s available in gentle and max formulations, so we’ll thoughtfully choose the one that best fits your hair type. We start this step by covering half the hair with a plastic cap to maintain moisture while we treat the first half. We strategically part small sections of the hair and apply the mouse treatment smoothing it down the hair shaft as we go. We take our time and repeat this process until your entire head has been treated.

Step Three – Seal & Style
The third and final step removes treatment residue, seals the hair’s cuticles, and creates a beneficial moisture balance. In this stage, we’ll coat your hair with the STS sealing spray. There’s no further rinsing or shampooing involved. The STS spray is designed to stay on your hair for long-lasting results. We carefully blow dry your hair from root to tip until completely dry, then we flat iron small sections of your hair. This results in incredibly smooth hair that shines and bounces with health and vitality.

Things you need to know

  • This is not a Relaxer or Brazilian Blowout so your hair will revert to its natural state when wet with a looser curl pattern
  • The Design Essentials® STS Express System is safe to use on children, so if you are having difficulty with manageability this will help.
  • The system is an In-Salon Only Treatment, so only a stylist who has received training from Design Essentials can do this treatment.
  • Ensure that your stylist checks for protein sensitivity as the whole system is essentially a protein treatment on steroids
  • Please follow the directions from your stylist on after care so that you reap the full benefits of this awesome treatment
  • The treatment does not completely fade away after 12 weeks you will still have manageability for at least another 6 weeks but the effects of the heat styling are not as sleek and you run the risk of heat damage.
  • The more often you use the treatment the more your curl pattern becomes looser and the longer the results last
  • This treatment can be used by those transitioning to their natural hair as it effectively keeps you textures similar and strengthens your hair

Once the treatment is complete, we style your hair to your specific preferences and you’re left with manageable, incredibly beautiful hair for up to twelve weeks. Are you ready to experience the magic of the Design Essentials® STS Express System? Book your appointment today. Your hair will thank you!

 

What is a Press n Curl?

Definition: When natural hair is straightened with heat.

If you wear your hair curly or in weaves, and want to modify your look a Press n Curl might be the option for you. It’s a pleasure to hear my clients rave about their hair transformation, especially my natural beauties. Typically speaking, the Press n Curl is for someone who wants to maintain their natural hair but prefers a relaxed straight look, and the Press n Curl is just that. Clients boast about their sleek and silky look! Thinking about it makes me smile due to my client’s reactions. Once I have completed the Press n Curl, every client does the exact same thing, take their fingers and run it from their scalp to the ends of their hair. And, let’s not forget, the hair is not chemically treated thus promoting healthy hair. I absolutely love this style because you have the option to flat iron your hair straight or add some bounce!

    If you choose a Press n Curl, here is additional information to ensure you achieve your desired look:

  • Conditioning is key with a Press n Curl, it protects the natural hair from heat damage.
  • Press N Curl services should last up to 2-3 weeks.
  • Please keep in mind that sweating, exercise, and any wetness to the hair will revert your hair to its natural state.

ECS’ prices for an Adult Press is $60, a Youth Press is $50, and for a Child Press is $45.
