Can I use Uberliss with other Keratin treatments, color services, and chemical processes?
Of course! Uberliss is perfectly compatible with other chemical services. As long as your hair isn't irreparably damaged, you're good to go!
How long does the Uberliss Keratin Treatment last?
Results typically last anywhere from 3-4 months, depending on the condition of your hair. Different factors, such as curl volume, density, diameter, porosity, hair history, etc can affect the longevity of the treatment. Some clients have experienced results that lasted longer than the average, i.e. 6-8 months.
Which ingredient makes the Uberliss Keratin Treatment effective?
We use Glyoxylic Acid as our active smoothing ingredient. Its much safer than Formaldehyde (Methylene Glycol) and better at creating a smooth seal around the hair-shaft.
Is the treatment safe to use on children or pregnant women?
Yes! We always recommend that you consult with your physician or pediatrician, but the Uberliss Keratin Treatment is safe for all clients.
Do I need to have an expensive ventilation system in my salon or wear a mask during application?
What's the difference between the Regular Method vs the Ultra Method?
The Regular Method is going to be the best bet for smoothing frizzy and wavy hair. It takes about 90 minutes to apply. Clients will need to wait 48-72 hours after the service before they wash. The Ultra Method is for extreme curls and resistant hair. It takes closer to 3 hours to apply, but the product is rinsed off the hair on the same day, meaning your client can wash immediately.
Can I retain my curls? I just want to lose some of the frizz...
Of course, no problem! Even though the Uberliss Keratin Treatment is engineered for volume and curl reduction, stylists can simply dial down the heat of the flat-iron and do less passes at the final stage of the Regular Method to retain more of your curls.
When can I apply color? Before or after applying Uberliss?
We recommend applying the Uberliss Keratin Treatment first, before color service. Optimal results are seen after waiting one whole week after applying Uberliss, since that allows the cross-link bonds of the keratin treatment to settle and solidify.
How much product should I rinse when doing the Regular Method?
The rinse water should be a little cloudy or murky. Not totally opaque or white, but not clear either. The reason for this is that you need some product on the hair for the blowdrying and flatiron steps. If you don't rinse any product, the blowdryer and flatiron won't be able to effectively seal the correct amount of product into the cortex of the hair, and you will experience alot more fumes (safe and non-toxic but still not desirable). If you rinse too much product out of the hair, you won't have enough product to blow-dry and flatiron into the cortex, and you won't get the 3-4 months of results that you're looking for.
What type of flatiron should I use?
Definitely use a Titanium flatiron with large plates. All other kinds of irons, i.e. Ceramic, Onyx, Gold, etc... don't work as well with the Uberliss Keratin Treatment, so try your best to avoid using them.
How do I minimize color fading or lifting when applying the Uberliss Keratin Treatment?
Simply lowering the temperature of your Titanium flatiron should do the job. Anywhere from 380º F to 410º F is all you need for processed hair. You can also lower the amount of passes of the flatiron. The hair is already porous, so you need to be careful with the temperatures and limit heat exposure.
Where can I buy Uberliss?
We're available worldwide via Uberliss.com or through a distributor near you.
How much should I charge for the Uberliss Keratin Treatment?
Salons typically price keratin treatments at $200-300. We have seen salons charge more, and less. It all depends on you, your location, your skill level, clientele, etc.
