If you decided to try Japanese hair straightening, get familiar with this hair styling technique before you make an appointment with a hairdresser. Japanese straightening is relatively new method also known as thermal reconditioning. It’s best for curly and frizzy hair as it turns it into perfectly smooth and shiny hair. Depending on the length of the hair, the procedure can last for more than 4 hours and costs over $ 400. Hairstylist first starts with washing the hair and then adds iron and other essential proteins which destroy all the “connections” in the structure of the hair, making it brittle and flexible. Proteins act as a nourishing mask which is washed prior to applying special protein solution.
The hair is then blow dried and is smooth under the influence of chemicals. Neutralizer is added before the hair is washed again followed by aggressive balm. The balm “seals” the hair again. This way of straightening keeps hair straight for more than 6 months, but the procedure should be repeated for new hair. Unfortunately, like any other chemical-based procedure, this one also may harm your hair. Since it makes hair dry and “blooming”, the Japanese hair straightening technique is not recommended for recently dyed hair.
Typically, every woman wants type and texture of hair that is completely unlike her natural hair. For example, women with curly hair long for straight silky hair and vice versa. The best thing for every women though is to take extra good care of her natural hair. However, if you want to straighten your hair, research all possible options, consult with experts and make sure your hairstylist is aware of the chemical involved in the hair straightening procedure.
