Japanese hair straightening uses a combination of chemical solutions and flat heat irons to permanently straighten curly hair types. The chemicals and heat break down the protein bonds make up each stand of hair. This process enables curly hair to become straight. The Japanese hair straightening process is also commonly referred to as “thermal reconditioning”.
Japanese hair straightening works best on loose curls or wavy hair types. If you struggle with a flat iron than maybe this is the right hair straightening procedure for you! It is not as good a solution for those with tight curls.
Japanese hair straightening uses a thio (thioglycolate) based relaxer. These are not compatible with the hydroxide based relaxers (sodium, potassium, calcium, or lithium hydroxide) that are very commonly used. It is important to consult with your hair stylist and understand which types of products you have used in previous relaxer treatments before a Japanese hair straightening procedure can be done.
Caring For Your Hair:
You must protect your new straight hair from water and any kind of bending during the days following the procedure. The chemical process works on your hair long after you have left our salon. You have to give the neutralizer many days to absorb oxygen from the air as your hair completes the process of becoming straight.
There are many specialized hair conditions and shampoos that can be used to help maintain the strength and shine your straight hair. We also employ a thermal heat protector to your hair to avoid as much damage as possible during the heat treatment (flat ironing).
