Keratin Complex Smoothing Therapy by Coppola is a new revolutionary smoothing system infuses keratin deep into the hair cuticle eliminating up to 100% of the frizz and curl from the hair. The advanced patent-pending formulation restores and restructures hair by infusing a special blend of natural keratin deep into the cuticle. The keratin is bonded into the cuticle by heat of the flat iron to relax the hair’s sub-cuticle layer. The hair is left soft, shiny and incredibly luxurious. The hair is more manageable and takes much less time to style.
The hair can be treated directly after permanent color, semi-permanent or highlights. The treatment will extend the life and seal color in, leaving it vibrant. For semi-gloss or toners, have color done 3-5 days after treatment for optimal results.
You must wait 72 hours before hair can get wet when receiving the Keratin Complex Smoothing Therapy. If the hair gets wet within this time period, blow the hair dry and flat iron with medium to low heat immediately.
Keratin Care Shampoo and Conditioner (Sodium-Chloride Free) or Keratin Color Care Shampoo & Conditioner (Sodium-Chloride and Sulfate Free) must be used for XEX to guarantee the procedure. The treatment can be done as often as 4-6 weeks. Re-application should be done on the entire head as the build-up of keratin can only improve, not harm, the hair.
Approximate processing time is 3 hours. Lasts 5-6 months.
The Express Blowout is a great alternative to the original. You will receive the same great results in a less time-consuming treatment.
All features of the original Keratin Complex Smoothing Therapy also apply to the Express Blowout except that you can get your hair wet 8 hours after treatment instead of 72 hours. Approximate processing time is only 1 hour. The Express Blow Out treatment lasts up to 6 weeks.

With COVID-19 devastating small businesses in Illinois and around the globe, XEX is no exception. In order to protect our community, we've made the difficult decision to temporarily close our doors as of Friday, March 20th, 2020. We hope to reopen on April 6th, 2020, though that date is tentative. We will keep you updated with any changes that might affect our return date.
While the decision to temporarily close our doors is heartbreaking and difficult, we know that it's the right thing to do for our community. In doing what we know to be socially responsible, our hearts go out to our staff and the entire service industry.
We are a unique industry in that we don't receive a paycheck when we don't work. Our staff is definitely feeling the weight of their financial commitments, as the length of this crisis remains uncertain.
In an effort to help our staff as best we can, we’re offering our gift cards online and distributing half of all proceeds to our staff so that they can cover some of their expenses during this immensely difficult time. We’d be so grateful if you participated by purchasing a gift card in any denomination from our website here.
David will still be answering the phone (312-372-9211) and booking future appointments, as well as helping facilitate orders for gift certificates. Please don't hesitate to reach out, as he'd love to hear from you.
We are closely following the guidance of global health experts at the World Health Organization (WHO) and U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) on preventing the spread of the COVID-19 virus. We are following the advice of Mayor Lightfoot and Governor Pritzker in their recommendations to ensure the health and safety of our stylists, our clients and our community.
Prior to the plea for social distancing, we allowed our staff to remain home without having it impact their sick leave if they were in any way uncomfortable with going out and being in the salon. We are so proud of our team, who inspire us to work as hard as we can to remain hopeful and to look forward to the future when we will emerge stronger than ever.
Thank you in advance for your kindness and love. We value you and appreciate you. It's during these stressful and uncertain times that we realize all the things we've taken for granted and will miss during this difficult time. We will miss greeting you after a long day, shaking your hand, giving you a hug, hearing about the kids, etc. The list goes on and on. We will look forward to seeing you all again soon and we'll have so much to celebrate.
Thinking of you and looking forward to seeing you soon.
