[note]Tips: Do an allergy test first. Put a tiny bit of Ultra Smoothing Gloss behind your ear. Let it sit for 30 minutes then clean it off. If you notice any burning, itching or irritated skin don’t use the product. Do a strand test. I take a a few strands of hair in the middle of my head and clip the rest aside. Apply Ultra Smoothing Gloss, leave it on for 20 minutes. Pass your flat iron over the hair a few times to dry it. If your strands are brittle then your isn’t suited for the treatment right now and you should wash and rinse well, then use a moisturizing conditioner.[/note]

Time To Prep…Get Your Hair Ready

Wash your hair with Ultra Care Shampoo then towel dry your hair a bit. De-tangle with a wide tooth comb then blow dry your hair. Now divide your hair into 4 equal parts and clip each section.

[note]Tips: Try to avoid scrunching your hair while washing. Instead just massage the shampoo through your hair strands, this will help the detangling process go smoother. It’s also less stressful on your strands, causing less damage from friction![/note]

Time For Ultra Keratin Touch Treatment

Starting at the base, you’ll start applying Ultra Smoothing Gloss, mindful to keep it 1/4” away from your scalp. I use my Ion Color Brilliance Extra Wide Tint Brush I got from Sally Beauty Supply for $1. I feel it helps me apply it easier without a mess. Comb thru to spread the gloss well. Repeat the same process for the remaining sections of hair.

Leave the gloss on for 30 minutes but comb your hair every 5 minutes. Your hair might get hard but that’s normal, stay calm 😉 Blow dry your hair next. You might notice white residue, I usually get that.  Almost flake like…it’s normal, chillax! Now you’ll need to flat iron it at 400 degrees F. Glide the flat iron thru your hair a few times. That seals your hair’s cuticles and helps the process take better, just like at the salon!

Woot! Almost Done…Finish Up!

Wash your hair again with the Ultra Care Shampoo, no more flakes or hard hair! Now put Ultra Care Conditioner on your hair, massage for 2-3 minutes and rinse for super soft hair! Then you can either blow dry your hair or let it dry naturally. I’ve done it both ways but I prefer to blow dry it so my hair is already smooth and straight for the next few days before washing. It’s really a personal preference and totally up to you! 😉

[note]Tips: Leave your hair alone for 48 hours! Don’t put it in crazy hair styles, use hair ties & accessories, pull it behind your ears or any of the other crazy stuff we do to our hair. Also don’t wash it. Just let it be. 48 hours![/note] [error]Warnings: Make sure to read the directions that come with the nuNAAT Ultra Keratin Touch kit. Don’t use this on your eyebrows or lashes. Seriously. Don’t use if you’ve been scratching your head like mosquitoes had a party in your hair or if you have cuts, etc on your scalp. Don’t bleach (lighten) or highlight your hair for at least 20 days but if dying your hair darker you can do that after 1 week.[/error]

That’s it darling, you’re ready to enjoy your frizz free, shiny hair! I’ve done this a few times so I typically complete the process in 1 – 1.5 hours. You can reapply nuNAAT Ultra Keratin Touch every 30 days. After finishing, I love the results and like that I can use this at home formaldehyde free Brazilian keratin treatment that is priced great! I follow up when I’m ready to wash with NAAT Brazilian Keratin Collection by nuNAAT for maintenance between UKT treatments.

    Hi Mina!
    Great blog 🙂 I came across it when I was looking up nuNAAT reviews.  I used the product almost a month ago today and it went pretty well for my first time.  My only concern is that when I washed it my hair my curls went from about 3b/4a to loose curls/ waves or straight.  Is this something that will wear off in time?  Also, the curls/waves that I do have are super frizzy with no product.  Since you didn't show pictures of your hair in the curly state I was just wondering how it is for you.  
    My hair is naturally very porous, I don't use color and it's been natural since 2007.  I have a feeling I will only want to "touch up" new growth next time I do it since it seemed to alter my hair greatly.  Do you do you reapplications on the full length of your hair?

    This stuff really works. And I had the curliest, frizziest hair that I could never tame. My hair isnt limp and straight. Its relaxed and so much more manageable. And the best part is the kit only costs $1 at my local Dollar Tree store!!!! Not sure if this is true of everywhere, but even if u hafto pay 30$, it is worth it!!!
