What is Japanese hair straightening
Japanese hair straightening is one part hair style and one part art form and is known both as Japanese straightening and as thermal reconditioning.
This method of hair straightening hair involves high heat, chemicals, and a flat iron to straighten curly or unruly hair. Unlike similar treatments, such as Brazilian keratin treatments and typical chemical relaxers, the end result will last much longer. It generally only requires minimal touch-ups once per year.
HOW DOES IT WORK
Thermal reconditioning with a Japanese hair straightener will take between 4 -5 hours depending on the length of hair that must be straightened. Japanese straightening is a technique that causes wavy, frizzy, or curly hair to be rendered perfectly straight. During the procedure the molecular bonds within the hair are softened and reformed into a straight pattern. Once the process is completed the end result includes not only incredibly straight hair, but a smooth, silky, and glossy finish.
