Japanese Hair Straightening Facts Boston

Japanese Hair Straightening Boston

Japanese hair straightening has forever been popular for those who want to permanently straighten their hair. Keratin treatments are an effective process to defrizz hair, but the effects are not permanent. With each consecutive keratin treatment, the buildable service will keep the hair tame, but once you stop the treatment, the hair will revert to its natural state.

Many people are shying away from keratin treatments due to the fumes, and potential hazards, but the Japanese straightening active ingredient has been in use since the 1930s. Ammonium thioglycolate has been used in hair perms for decades, and research shows that mild perms are the best way to go. Japanese straightening active ingredient is Ammonium Thio, and the strength is mild. That being said, it is a personal choice to use the process, and strand testing is imperative.

Before processing the hair, it is important to ensure that your stylist examines the condition of your hair, perform a strand test, and should never apply the product if:

1) You have previously used henna in your hair

2)  Used any type of color containing beeswax or metallic dyes. (metallic dyes may be found in over-the-counter box color)

3) If you relax your hair with sodium hydroxide in the past or present.

At Noelle Salon, we use the CHI Transformation System, which is offered in three solutions, processing time will vary based on the porosity of your natural hair. We consistently test the integrity of your hair throughout processing.
