Japanese Hair Straightening

By Steve Farber

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.

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.

Taking six hours or longer, the 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.

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.

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.

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 your salon have lots of experience.
