[Have beautiful silky, shiny, straight hair today.]

Japanese silk straight hair treatment is known by many different names, from Yuko, to thermal reconditioning to rebonding. The treatment is supposed to make hair as straight and smooth as silk. Although it takes a very long time in the salon, many women love the outcome and are willing to pay the price for this bit of beauty.

Japanese Hair Straightening

  • Japanese silk straight hair treatment uses chemicals to get rid of all curls, kinks, flyaways, and wave in a woman's hair. The process can take three to five hours. We begin by washing your hair and giving it a full dry, adding a conditioner to your hair during this time. 

    Then the stylist places your hair into sections and applies a chemical solution throughout your scalp. The chemical solution is a relaxer that breaks down the bonds in your hair. The stylist will test your hair after a period of time to see if it has worked. If it has, your hair will be rinsed and flat irons applied to straighten your hair. While they iron your hair, they will apply a lot of tension to make sure it comes out straight.

    After the irons are used, they add another chemical into your hair, let it sit for 10-15 minutes and then it is rinsed out once more. The chemical neutralizer re-bonds your hair after it was broken down and makes your hair stronger and resilient. After the rinsing, the irons come out one more time and this final drying should lock the chemicals into place.

    After several hours at the salon, you cannot wash or style your hair for 24 hours or longer to ensure your hair keeps its straight form. The Japanese silk straight hair treatment  can cost you between $200 - $350. 

    This is not recommended for damaged or heavily treated hair. Also, if you have delicate African hair or if your hair is thinning or falling out, a stylist will not use this treatment. Be aware that this treatment can last for six months or longer and your hair will grow back normally, so you may have curls growing back before the six months are up. You have to protect your hair from the sun by using ultra-violet protection hair spray or hair products and wait one to two months before coloring your hair.
