Dear Coily….Belegenza: In reading your questions, it seems that you are asking specifically about the Simply Smooth Humidity Blocker. So, I will answer those questions first, and then add from there. Of course, if you want more answers, keep asking!
What do you recommend in order to use Belegenza on type 4 hair?Belegenza: Besides the fine hair products, all Belegenza products are excellent, especially Romance Deep Conditioning Treatment, VirgINity Hair Repair, and Encore, Simply Smooth, Taffy and SpotLite Shine Serum.Keep in mind, that Belegenza’s specialty is dealing with the actual structure of human hair of any texture and type. Once the core is dealt with, then Belegenza fine tunes the hair according to environment and personal styling needs!
Should the hair be wet?Belegenza: In most cases, yet.Although, Encore is a curl definer that has been discovered as leave-in ( on wet ) and then afterward (on dry) to refine the curls on non – shampoo days.
For how long should the hair be under a heat cap for one hour?Belegenza: We’re assuming this is regarding Simply Smooth. We would try 15 minutes the first time to get a sense of how much curl loosening it may be for your specific hair and your expectations. You can add more time, or 15 minutes at a time to get your desired curl control. As far as conditioning, heat is not necessary for the Romance. “Swelling” the hair with heat is not necessary, as the molecules that make the difference are super small and get into the hair without having to swell the hair with heat. ( Heat is NOT always useful and is completely overused. Each time the hair is swollen with wet heat, it’s stretching the cuticle back and forth adding more damage in most cases. There is a salon secret about heat that got turned into a money maker for the salon and beauty industry that is NOT NICE! More about that by clicking here…..)
Will it work to straighten the hair leaving the product in or should I wash the straightener out?Belegenza: It is most effective at smoothing the hair when it’s wet. You can leave it in, as it is also a styling product. If you use more than your hair needs, it may seem heavy, and you can of course, rinse it out. It’s based on the product Taffy, which is a styling product WITHOUT the smoothing capability. If you are wanting more shine, in any case, the SpotLite Shine Serum can be added at any time.

Fine hair? Tinted? Indescribable damage?
If you have found yourself on the “TRY ANYTHING” wheel, it may be that silicone and synthetic products just can’t quite cover up the damage that has accumulated coupled with hormonal influences on the hair’s natural processes. As Belegenza begins to purify your hair from these slick cover-ups, the true damage may be revealed and for the first few applications, your hair may tangle, feel dry or more brittle. This is temporary, as the micro-conditioning agents make their way INTO the damage sites. Keep going. It’s temporary, and you’ll be glad you did! Not only that, we’re here to assist you through the process. You can always start the conversation with “Alan-bot” who should have already popped up to help!
