FAQS

Q. Who is the best candidate for the GK Hair Taming System?

A. It has been our experience, that good candidates for the GK Hair Taming System are anyone who has frizzy, damaged or processed hair. We have performed the treatment on every hair type (fine/course/frizzy/curly), as well as hair that has been permed, Japanese straightened and extensions. In doing so, we have found that with proper communication and a well considered application, everyone can benefit from the GK Hair Taming System.

Q. What kind of look will you get from a GK Hair Taming System?

A. The hair will be left totally frizz-free, shiny, effortlessly manageable and with plenty of body and bounce. There will still be the option to wear hair curly/wavy (depending on the hair type) and the freedom to blow dry hair smooth and straight in a fraction of the time invested prior to receiving the treatment.

Q. Can I still receive a GK Hair Taming treatment if I have highlights and/or color?

A. Yes, a GK Hair Taming System treatment will actually improve the health of color-treated/highlighted hair by conditioning the hair while sealing the cuticle for enhanced color, reduced frizz and radiant shine.

Q. Is the GK Hair Taming System treatment going to make my hair straight?

A. If your hair is wavy, the GK Hair Taming System treatments will make your hair appear naturally straight and healthy. If your hair is very curly, it will minimize frizz while enhancing the appearance of the natural wave/curl. If you have straight, frizzy hair, this treatment will eliminate frizz and promote radiant shine. For curly hair we recommend the GK Hair Curly or Resistant Taming treatment.

Q. How long does the GK Hair Taming System treatment last?

A. The GK Hair Taming System treatment will last up to 5 months if the after care GK Hair shampoo and conditioner are used. The GK Hair Taming System  is a cumulative treatment, in that the more you receive it, the healthier the hair will be and the longer the result will last.

Q. Can you apply the GK Hair Taming System treatment directly on top of other relaxers and strengtheners?
A. Yes. The GK Hair Taming System treatment actually works best on chemically treated hair, and helps to improve the hairs condition by fortifying each strand with essential amino acids.

The GK Hair Taming System treatment works great directly on top of a relaxer. Perform the relaxer first, Brazilian Blowout next, and then neutralize at the very end of both treatments.

The GK Hair Taming System is great to perform when someone is trying to move away from having relaxers or Japanese straighteners. It puts movement back into the hair, allowing the hair to look its best.

Q. Will my hair lose volume if I receive the GK Hair Taming System treatment?

A. No, your hair will not lose volume as a result of receiving the GK Hair Taming System treatment. Your hair will maintain its natural volume and you will still receive great bend and memory when blow-drying and/or using a curling iron.

Q. Can you color your hair the same day you receive a GK Hair Taming System treatment?

A. Yes, however, you must color your hair prior to having the GK Hair Taming System treatment. If you are coloring hair dark brunette or red, you will want to color the hair a shade darker than you would otherwise, as the hair color will experience fading during the GK Hair Taming System treatment.

Q. Can you swim in the pool or ocean after you have the GK Hair Taming System treatment?

A. Yes, you can swim in either the pool or the ocean after you receive the GK Hair Taming System treatment, however, the treatment may be slightly compromised if you swim on a regular basis.

Q. How soon can you touch up your color after you receive the GK Hair Smoothing treatment?

A. You should wait at least two weeks to administer color to the hair after you receive the GK Hair Smoothing treatment, as the color will not deposit as effectively with the protein protective layer provided by the smoothing treatment.

Q. How soon can I wash my hair after the GK Hair Smoothing treatment?

A. You can wash your hair immediately after the GK Hair Smoothing treatment, or as you would normally.

Q. Can I receive the GK Hair Smoothing treatment if I have over-processed blonde hair? What if my hair is platinum blonde?

A. It is important for every stylist to assess the condition of the client’s hair to make sure it is in a healthy enough state to apply extreme heat through the use of a flat iron. If it is felt that the hair is in questionable condition, the recommendation is to turn the flat iron down from 450 degrees to approx. 380-420. The stylist will have to determine the appropriate amount of heat to apply. Additionally, we recommend the GK Hair Miami Bombshell Taming Blonde treatment–specifically formulated for blondes.

Q. Can you perform a GK Hair Taming System treatment on extensions?

A. Yes, the GK Hair Taming System treatment performs perfectly on hair extensions. It would be best for the stylist to perform the GK Hair Taming System treatment separately on the extensions prior to putting them into the hair. If you wish to perform the treatment on extensions that are already in the hair, the stylist will need to be extremely careful when applying the solution to the bonded area. GK Hair Taming System solution acts as a conditioning agent, and may create slip resulting in the extensions separating from the hair. If the stylist is careful and works to first separate the extension hair from the client’s own hair, a great result can be achieved.

Q. Can I receive/perform a GK Hair Taming System treatment if I am pregnant or breastfeeding?

A. There have been no clinical tests performed on the safety of performing the GK Hair Taming System treatment on pregnant women or women who are breastfeeding. As a result, we do advise against pregnant or breastfeeding women receiving/performing the GK Hair Taming treatment unless written approval by your physician.

Q. How soon can I receive a GK Hair Taming System treatment after I receive my first treatment?

A. The GK Hair Taming System treatment is just like a conditioning treatment, so you will not harm the hair by performing them too soon or too much, however, please remember that you can only fill the cuticle to its capacity.  If a client wants to come back for another treatment, or it did not take to the hair the way it should have, you can have the client come back in 10 days following the first treatment.

Q. How is the GK Hair Taming System treatment different from the Japanese straightening method many people are familiar with?

A. Japanese hair straightening changes the actual structure of the hair.  In doing so, there is an obvious difference between the new hair growth and the hair that has been treated, resulting in a life-long commitment to continuing the straightener or cutting hair off (if client is unhappy with the result).  This service can also leave the hair flat, too straight and with little to no shine or luster. The hair’s integrity seems to be compromised, and after a few treatments, the hair appears to be in an unhealthy state.
