A popular method of straightening curly hair that many women swear by is Japanese hair straightening. This long-lasting treatment produces sleek, shiny styles that many women yearn for without having to spend several hours per week in front of a mirror with a straightening iron. Now, let’s discuss just what Japanese hair straightening is and how it can benefit you.
What is Japanese Hair Straightening?
Japanese hair straightening is a permanent hair straightening process. It eliminates frizz and transforms your hair into straight and sleek strands for months. This salon treatment restructures your hair without damage and is formaldehyde-free.
How Does It Work?
This is a thermal reconditioning treatment that uses a combination of chemical processing and heat. First, your stylist will apply the straightening solution to your hair. As the solution goes to work it will break down the bonds in your strands to change their structure. Once it has had time to work its magic, your hair will be rinsed and then blow-dried and flat ironed until it is stick straight. A neutralizer will then be applied to your hair to lock in your hair’s new texture. The process can take a few hours and should begin with a consultation to assess your hair and answer any questions you may have.
How Will This Benefit Me?
Simply put, Japanese hair straightening will save you time while giving you long-lasting, soft, silky, straight locks without frizz. The results will last for up to 6 months. That’s months of freedom from anti-frizz serums and flat irons with gorgeous hassle-free styles.
After-care is really very simple. You shouldn’t wash your hair for 3 days following your Japanese hair straightening treatment. After that, there are no special care instructions and you are free to resume your usual activities.
