By Thelma Kent

Japanese hair straightening NYC is a treatment with its origin in Japan. It uses heat and chemicals to permanently alter the structure of shafts such that they become straight. The hairs lose their natural curls and rearrange neatly to straight, smooth, shiny and glossy look.

It is essential for the hairdresser to do a strand test because some hairs may be destroyed by the chemicals and heat. The first step involves the restructuring of the shafts. The scalp is shampooed, conditioned and after which the excess moisture is removed by blow drying. Thermal ionic lotion is then applied in order to loosen and break tangles which bring about tangles.

Once the shafts have rearranged, they are then flat ironed under high temperatures using a ceramic flat iron. This process normally takes long because they are ironed potion by potion and depends on the length. The third step is the application of reconditioning treatment which helps strengthen hairs.

This process is not suitable for all hairs due to the amount of heating and chemicals used. Hairs that have been dyed, bleached or permed cannot be reconditioned. They may however use special products which have a lesser percentage of peroxide but only after the hairs have acquired growth. The reconditioning is also not recommended on African American hairs.

Thermal reconditioned hairs are easy to maintain, style and do not require blow drying. These hairs not affected by moisture and when washed they are blow-dried to regain original state. The straightness lasts for a period of eight months after which a retouch is essential. These advantages have rendered straight hairs the current popular trend in the fashion market.
