Japanese hair straightening is a way of permanently straightening the hair, making wavy, coarse, or curly hair into pin-straight locks by treating the hair with chemicals which break the protein bonds in the hair that give it its shape.
This process is also known as “thermal reconditioning” since it also uses very special flat irons that heat to precise temperatures to complement the work of the chemical solution.
This permanent hair straightening process has many benefits. The most obvious one is the sleek, frizz free look. But beyond the appearance factor, the greatest benefit is likely to be time saved each day on not having to fight to dry, wavy or curly hair with a blow dryer and brush.
Hair that has been straightened by thermal reconditioning is much quicker to dry. It requires very little attention out of the shower, giving you a professional look with minimal effort. You are also saved from the hassle of fighting frizz from humidity or physical activity.
The Japanese hair straightening process is extensive, taking at least 3 to 4 hours. It can take up to 8 hours depending on the length, thickness, and condition of the hair being treated.
Certain types of hair will benefit the most from Japanese hair straightening, and some types should not even consider the process. In general, this procedure is a good fit for those with loose curls or wavy hair who are tired of fighting their hair with a flat iron every day.
