It's known as Japanese Hair Straightening or Thermal Reconditoning. If you have unruly waves and want a dramatic new look, consider this.
The hair you leave with is straight, soft and shiny without any help of products, the blowdryer or a round brush. Imagine that!
It is expensive, but clients who have it done say it is worthwhile.
Before you rush to the salon, you must know these facts.
1. You need two visits, one for the consultation and the other for the process. You need the consultation to see if your hair is appropriate for the process.
2. The entire procedure will take at least four hours. Be considerate and dont rush the hairdresser. Be considerate and dont cancel your appointment in the last minute.
3. You must not wet your hair for a day while the chemicals settle, just like a perm. Some even say you must not ponytail it during that time either. Ask your stylist.
4. Dont look for a salon that will offer the cheapest price. Look for a place that is qualified. Ask for references. If you know someone whose had it done, ask that person who did it.
