Japanese Hair Straightening
Japanese Hair Straightening is also called Thermal reconditioning. It is best for bulky, loose to medium-but not kinky-curls. The hair is saturated with a solution containing a chemical that breaks the bonds that give each strand its shape; it is then rinsed, blow-dried, and meticulously flat-ironed. Once a neutralizer is applied, the hair is locked into this new, straight configuration. The process can take up to 8 hours the first time (depending on length and thickness); touch-ups require 3 to 4 hours. For 3 days after the treatment, you can’t get your hair wet or do anything kink inducing (like wear a ponytail), and while your hair will now be sleek and shiny (even after air-drying), you’re left with one styling option: bone-straight. Even curling irons or hot rollers won’t restore volume or wave. Retail: $500~$1500. Our Price: $150+ Please call us for a free consultation and estimate.
