The Avlon Texture Release

What is a Texture Release?

In simple terms, an Avlon Texture Release is a system created to soften coarse, tightly coiled and curly hair. It is a special process that must be completed in a salon by a professional to avoid damaging the hair. After applying the dilator and releasing lotion, heat must be applied to smooth out your coils and set your new softer, looser style. “A texture release is essentially a semi-permanent smoothing treatment without harsh chemicals,” says Natasha John-Lewis, co-owner of My Hair Bar Salon, London.

Benefits of a Texture Release and who is it for?

An Avlon Texture Release is a great solution if you find your coils and curls difficult to style. The Texture Release will allow you to keep your curls and coils intact but will make them easier to smooth and style by deep conditioning and moisturising the strands.

Most clients get a texture release 3 or 4 times a year and they find that it helps to soften and moisturise hair, elongate coils and reduce the possibility of frizz in humidity or rainy conditions. Lots of clients also find that it significantly cuts washing and styling time as their strands are more receptive to styling and products.
