Japanese Hair Straightening

Japanese Hair Straightening is a chemical process that can turn the curliest straight. Typically women, who love the straight look, will love Japanese Hair Straightening.

In a nutshell, it is a fairly revolutionary way for people with troublesome curly hair to have Straight Hair. This process was first created for Japanese women as a smoothing and conditioning treatment that promotes a permanent altering of the hair structure. The hair’s cyctine protein bonds are loosened and reshaped through the straightening of hair cells.

Normally taking six hours or longer, the cost will to range from $500.00 to $1,500 because, it takes TWO Hair Stylists. Not to mention another hour or so in a follow-up session three days later. The entire process involves multiple steps depending on the texture and length of your hair.

To protect your hair from the chemicals and heat, a pre-conditioner is applied first, followed by a applying a Hair Relaxer with heat applications and a periodic flat ironing. The process was designed primarily for Caucasian hair and I would still recommend relaxers for ethnic hair over the Japanese Hair Straightening.

With the exception of extremely brittle hair, the treatment works on just about any hair type. Thermal reconditioning could be for you, if you want to have permanently straight hair.

The tighter your curl, the less dramatic the result, however, in most cases your hair will be far more controllable and manageable. That said, I would still recommend relaxers for ethnic hair, like African and Asian, over the Japanese Hair Straightening.

As a word of caution, your straight hair will last till it grows out. If you want to keep your hair smooth, you’ll have to make a trip to the salon for root straightening touch-ups to prevent your roots from growing in kinky. If you a perm or highlights in your hair, you will need to test a strand of hair to see if your hair can handle the chemicals. Make sure that your stylist has been certified to perform this service.

After straightening, you do want to be sure to keep hair protected from the sun and moisturized, so frequent deep conditioning and an SPF spray or other UV protective hair product is highly recommended. You must wait at least one to two months before coloring your hair after the treatment, depending on your stylist’s recommendations.

Most experts claim the treatment is not harmful, but any process that alters hair structure could be damaging. Especially during touch-up time because that’s when your more likely to be exposed to the most chemicals. My final tip is to ensure your hairdresser and salon has lots of experience.
