Hilda's Japanese Straightening and Trim

30th September 2016

“I fell in love with the Japanese hair straightening procedure! It’s my second visit, here, at Plaza Hair Salon and I must say that Mai is simply amazing.”

Hilda O.

It is well-known that a woman with curly, frizzy hair will always want a smooth, sleek hair. This is the reason why most of the women from around the world straighten out their hair. Hairdryers and straighteners may do the trick but it won’t last a long period of time. This is why many women prefer to visit us at Plaza Hair Salon for the popular and long-lasting Japanese hair straightening. This method of permanently straightening hair has its roots in Japan in 1990 and promises to turn wavy or curly hair into a straight look by using chemicals that break the protein bonds in the hair which gives shape to the hair. The procedure expands as follows:

  • we will begin the straightening process by shampooing your hair and partially drying it;
  • the product will be applied and after that, your hair will be blow dried and flat-ironed;
  • a neutralizer will be applied and left in order to stabilize the pH balance;
  • more conditioner and heat protectant will be applied to your hair before the final blow-drying;
  • the hair will be blow dried in the direction of the cuticles and finally flat ironed so that it is completely straight.

We recommend you to avoid getting your hair wet in the next 48 – 72 hours.

What Types of Hair Will Benefit the Most?

There are certain types of hair that will benefit more from Japanese hair straightening. This procedure is good for those with curly and wavy hair who are tired of straightening it up every day with a flat iron.

The Japanese straightening procedure is perfect for busy persons. You won’t need to use a flat iron to straighten your hair in the morning, simply tie it in a pony-tail and voila hair looks awesome in 2 minutes. The benefit for those with curls is less, because the process would take longer and it will, therefore, be more expensive. Touch ups would also be needed frequently because the hair will grow from the roots.

For women with African hair, this process is not such a good straightening solution. Thermal reconditioning can also have unpredictable results for women who are pregnant or nursing after all breastfeeding and pregnancy have a strong impact on a woman’s normal hormonal balance. If you already got your hair colored or bleached make sure to tell your stylist because these processes affect the health of your hair. The Japanese hair straightening process will require an extra care and consideration. The stylist will probably recommend you another straightening procedure that will be safe and effective for your hair.
