Wet Stretch Test

The wet stretch test is simple, quick, and easy to perform. It is the number one way to determining the proper treatment plan for your hair. The results of the Wet Stretch Test are indisputable and very clearly demonstrates what products you need to achieve and maintain healthy hair, and why.

Step 1. Separate about 10 strands of hair and spray with water. For best results, make sure the hair is well saturated.

Step 2. Hold hair firmly between both hands.

Step 3. Gently but firmly pull hair away from your head. Ensure you pull with enough tension to assess if the hair strands stretch.

Step 4. Observer how the hair stretches and returns.

Analyzing the results:
Hair which stretches and 30% of its length and then returns is healthy.
Hair which stretches but doesn’t return to its previous length is weak in protein.
Hair which doesn’t stretch is low in moisture.
Hair which stretches and breaks is low in protein and moisture.
