Master the Art and Science of Hair Control
Take a hard look
Before using Hair Controller, look at the overall hair health of the hair and scalp. Ensure the scalp is healthy and free of abrasions before continuing.
Manage client expectations
Discuss previous chemical, color and styling history with your client.
Hair Controller is safe for all hair types, however, use caution with high temperature as it may cause discoloration or damage to grey or overly-porous blonde hair.
All hair types will benefit from Hair Controller and achieve their desired texture. Some clients with extremely curly hair may require more than one service to achieve flat, straight hair-dried results.
Cleanse hair only with QiQi Go Deeper shampoo.
Allow second wash to absorb on hair.
Virgin, Resistant, Curly, Coily:5 minutes
Moderate curl, moderate porosity:5 minutes
Overly Porous, compromised hair:2 minutes with only one shampoo recommended
Towel dry to 90%

You’re prepped and ready. It’s time to apply Hair Controller
For virgin applications, use an application brush and apply Hair Controller 0.5cm away from the scalp through the ends.
For retouch applications, use an application brush and apply Hair Controller 0.5cm away from the scalp to the line of demarcation.
Overlapping is safe.
Activate Hair Controller with heat to penetrate the cortex. This softens the disulfide bonds.
Virgin, coarse, resistant hair
60 - 90 minutes. high heat
Moderate curl and porosity
45 - 60 minutes. high heat
30 minutes. high heat
Don’t rinse entirely - leaving 10% of Hair Controller in the hair retains moisture and the slight acidity aids in the finishing process. Rinse gently on low flow. Water should look slightly milky when finished.

The artistry begins
Now that you have rinsed you can change the texture as much or as little as you want, from soft hydrated curls to flat straight and everything in between. If you want to keep your curls, waves, coils, or just hydrate thirsty hair and not change the shape, apply our Super Soaker Masque for 10 minutes after you rinse, locking in hydration, for the best version of your hair.
To stretch curls and retain some texture, blow dry hair on high heat with a metal or ceramic centered round brush. Curl pattern will be reduced, hydrated and easier to style. To create the straightest results, set your straightening iron close to 450° F/ 230° C so the hair can safely accept it. More heat, more tension, more passes = straighter results.
