Why is Bio Ionic referred to as the #1 Japanese straightening system?
A: The Bio Ionic Icon-Retexturizing System, with Natural Ion Therapy, was originally developed in Japan to meet the needs of the Japanese, who have very straight, coarse, wiry hair that needs softening, smoothing and better manageability. This system permanently retexturizes hair, making it silky, sleek and easy to manage.


Q: Why is it called Trinity FX Therapy?
A: For centuries, natural negative ions have been used in Japan to restore, rejuvenate and revitalize the mind and body. Negative ion energy is powerful enough to break water molecule clusters into micro-fine particles that can penetrate the hair shaft. During the Bio Ionic straightening process, the patented Trinity FX Complex infuses moisture into the hair to keep it hydrated and shiny.


Q: How long do the results last?
A: The Bio Ionic Ion-Retexturizing System is a permanent process. Your retexturized hair will stay straight permanently.


Q: Does the Bio Ionic Ion-Retexturizing System require touch-ups?
A: You probably will want to touch up the regrowth after about 4-6 months, when it has grown almost three inches. Most women find that the weight of the reconditioned hair keeps the new growth very manageable for months.


Q: Can I use the Bio Ionic Ion-Retexturizing System if my hair has been coloured?
A: Yes. The Bio Ionic Ion-Retexturizing System can be used on colour-treated hair, including single-processed, double-processed and highlighted.


Q: Can I colour my hair after using the Bio Ionic Ion-Retexturizing System?
A: Yes, as long as you wait 10 days after the service, you may colour your hair without any ill effects. In fact, using Bio Ionic styling tools will  help prolong the colour.


Q: How long does the process take?
A: You should allow 2 to 3 hours or more for the  Bio Ionic Ion-Retexturizing System process, depending on the thickness and length of your hair.


Q: Can I wash my hair the next day?
A: No. After the Bio Ionic Ion-Retexturizing process, you will wait 72 hours (three full days) before washing or wetting your hair.


Q: What about pulling my hair back after the process?
A: You must wait 72 hours (three full days) before using bands, metal or plastic clips, pins or other hair ornaments. That goes for putting your hair behind your ears, too.


Q: Will I still need to blow-dry my hair after the process?
A: It will depend on your hair and hairstyle. Some hair, because of its style and texture, looks great with just a shampoo. However, in most cases blow-drying - preferably with the Bio Ionic Ion-Conditioning Dryer and Ion-smoothing Brushes - is recommended to achieve the desired style.
