Japanese Thermal Straightening

Imagine replacing unmanageable curls for silky locks. Straight hair that lasts for months.

Japanese Hair Straightening

Japanese hair straightening is a popular way of permanently straightening hair that originated in Japan in the 1990’s. It promises to turn wavy, coarse, or curly hair into pin-straight locks by treating the hair with chemicals which break the protein bonds in the hair that give it its shape.

This permanent hair straightening process has many benefits. The most obvious one is the sleek, frizz free look. But beyond the appearance factor, the greatest benefit is likely to be time saved each day on not having to fight to dry, wavy or curly hair with a blow dryer and brush.

Hair that has been straightened by thermal reconditioning is much quicker to dry. It requires very little attention out of the shower, giving you a professional look with minimal effort. You are also saved from the hassle of fighting frizz from humidity or physical activity.

How It Works:

The Japanese hair straightening process is extensive, taking at least 3 to 4 hours. It can take up to 8 hours depending on the length, thickness, and condition of the hair being treated.

The key to this method of hair straightening is the special solution that chemically alters the bonds (disulfide/cystine) which give shape to the individual strands of hair. This allows for the hair to be permanently straightened.

Hair is shinier, silkier, full of body and bounce.

The procedure produces permanent straightening, a retouch is needed for regrowth. Retouch time depends on your particular hair type. Consult with Angela for the amount of time your hair will take to straighten and how often you may need to retouch.
