Hi! I am Bruce Johnson here on texturizing hair at Avatar Salon in Silver Spring Maryland. In this next process we are going to be doing the actual working through the chemical through the hair. So I start here in the nape. I just lightly, kind of, pull it through a little bit. Again, I don't want the hair to be going straight. That's one reason I am using a very mild relaxer. But I do want to smooth it to a point where the hair shaft can feel a change. So I take about quarter inch partings down to entire head as I move forward. I can see the texture changing right before my eyes here. I don't want to put too much tension on hair, because it will cross the surface of the scalp to burn. Some spots I may have missed in the first application, I go back and apply to specially at the root area, because like I said before it does burn quicker or it processes quicker. So I am able to apply that as I go back and work through. So I use my hands as I work it through to help influence the texture to change more. This process should only take about a little more than like two minutes. I am coming up on my last section here. We have now worked the entire chemical through the hair. So now we are ready for neutralizing the process.
