Do you have wavy, curly or frizzy hair and would love to have straight hair? Are you tired of spending hours in the bathroom each morning, trying to tame your unruly locks? Here comes the solution! You've probably already heard of the term “Japanese Hair Straightening”. The treatment got famous in the 2000’s and is still more than relevant. But do you really know what the procedure includes, how long it lasts and how it works? Read on and learn everything you need to know before booking your Japanese Hair Straightening at Chris Chase Salon!


What Is Japanese Hair Straightening?
Japanese Hair Straightening is a process to permanently straighten hair. The treatment will transform your locks into a sleeker, shinier version and eliminate frizz. Even better, the thermal reconditioning system doesn’t contain formaldehyde and won’t damage your hair in any way.

What Are The Benefits?
Thanks to the Japanese Hair Straightening, you can enjoy permanently silky, straight locks. The service provides you amazing results and is long lasting. Your hair will be left shiny, without frizz and incredibly sleek.

How Does Japanese Hair Straightening Work?
Japanese Hair Straightening works with a thermal reconditioning system. This means your stylist will apply a special solution to your hair that breaks down your hair’s bonds and its structure. Once applied, the solution will do its magic and your stylist will rinse it out. Your hair is then blow dried and flat ironed leaving a remarkably pin-straight look that is treated with a neutralizer. The neutralizer is effective in keeping your hair’s new shape.
