Japanese hair straightening is a widely admired method of straightening wavy or curly hair. It is a popular treatment for turning frizzy and unruly hair into gorgeously and permanently smooth, straight, and glossy mane.
How does Japanese hair straightening work?
Japanese hair straightening method relies entirely on a particular type of solution that is applied to hair. This solution instantly breaks down the bond of your hair. This eventually gives the hair its beautiful shape allowing hair to become pin-straight. This procedure requires a flat-iron.
The hair stylist will saturate your hair with this solution. Then the hair will be rinsed and dried with a blow dryer. This is followed by flat-ironing the hair in small 1/8th sections with a ceramic iron. After all this, a neutralizer is applied to the hair to lock the hair style in place.
Be cautious while selecting your hair stylist:
Many women with frizzy or curly hair simply swear by the permanent hair straightening salons. But this method is also controversial because if done by an unprofessional or inexperienced hair stylist, or done incorrectly, it can simply wreak havoc on hair. Hence, it is imperative that you get the hair straightened only by skilled and experienced hair stylist working in some renowned salon.
Moreover, the entire procedure is laborious and time-intensive too. Therefore, instead of getting it done in a hurry, expect to be in the salon for a few hours. The time to be taken for this procedure also depends on the length of a woman’s hair and its thickness.
Benefits of this treatment:
Although this permanent hair straightening process is not cheap, it has some amazing benefits and perks.
- Once you get it done, you can easily ditch your flat iron for at least the next six months.
- As an advantage, you will save time as well as a lot of money on various straightening products for a long period.
- You will have control on your mane and will remain frizz free even during monsoon season and other humid days. Since this hair straightening procedure seals the moisture into one’s mane, your hair will become not only gorgeous and clean looking but also smoother, healthier and softer.
One has to be extremely careful with her new pin-straight hair after getting this treatment done. You cannot wash your hair or even pull it up into a bun or a ponytail for at least 72 hours until it sets well. But all the wait and hassle are worth tolerating as the results will blow your mind, once you step out of the Japanese hair straightening salon with a smooth and gorgeous hair.
