Japanese Hair Straightening

Japanese Hair Straightening

Women with curly, unmanageable hair often look for several artificial methods to get sleek, straight hair. The Japanese hair straightening process became popular in NYC somewhere in the 2000s. Many women opted for this chemical hair straightening procedure to get rid of their curls temporarily.
How it straightens your curls
It involves the application of a chemical solution on the hair to break its bonds and become vulnerable to take any shape. When the flat iron is used on this hair, it responds readily, and you get pin-straight hair, beautiful and way manageable than your natural curls. The first step involves applying the solution, rinsing it, and drying with the blow dryer, while the last step is the flat iron. In the end, a neutralizer is applied to the straight hair to lock it. If done properly, the straight hair will last you for about six months. The process can be time-consuming, so make sure you take a long appointment at the salon.

At Michel Rene Hair Salon and Spa, we have a team of seasoned professionals to complete the process efficiently and in an error-free manner. We also run a hair evaluation check to see if your tresses are suitable for straightening by this method.
What are the benefits of Japanese hair straightening?
The Japanese hair straightening process is less damaging compared to other hair straightening methods. Its effect lasts for over six months, after which you have to retouch it to enjoy the benefits longer. According to women, who have been doing it regularly, it offers mind-blowing results, especially for coarse and unruly curls. Besides straightening your curly hair, the process also ensures shiny, glossy tresses that need little maintenance. If you have a busy schedule, you can pull your tresses into a long ponytail or comb through them before leaving for work. Your hair will stay that way throughout the day. On top of that, you won’t need any heat styling to keep your hair beautiful.
Few things to remember about Japanese hair straightening
If you have treated your hair with chemicals previously, it is essential to opt for the hair evaluation test before you straighten it. Not all salons will tell you this, as it may hamper their business. But we, at the Michel Rene Hair Salon and Spa, put customer satisfaction and safety over everything else. Further, if you have colored your hair only recently, we recommend that you wait for a while before opting for this method.
