to learn all about the technique of Japanese smoothing, its advantages and results.
Japanese straightening aims to transform the hair in depth. More specifically, this method, also known as the Yuko system, promises to act on the structure of the hair to achieve lasting or very long-term results. Is this hair straightening system really effective? How does it work and when can it be used? Here are the answers to all these questions and much more!
How the Japanese smoothing technique works
Japanese straightening is a permanent straightening technique of hair, invented by Yuko Yamashita, professional hairdresser, specializing in hair straightening and care. The method is also known as Yuko system, named after its creator.
In practice, the Yuko straightening technique works in several steps:
the hair is washed and dried;
-Then they are smoothed with ceramic plates;
-is a special straightening product applied over the entire length of the hair, mud through mud; it acts on the hair for about 30 minutes;
-The hair is smoothed and dried again.
Depending on the type of hair, the entire procedure takes about 3 to 4 hours of hair, its condition and length.
The products used by the system of hair straightening Yuko, act in a way that transform the structure to deep hair. They consist of silk proteins and contain no traces of formaldehyde or dangerous substances that can cause diseases such as cancer.
What are the benefits of the Yuko system and smoothing? Japanese
On this day, the method of Japanese straightening is considered as a procedure radically hard and very effective. It acts on any type of hair, regardless of its length. Even girls with wrinkles and rebels can enjoy it! The technique is said to give the hair a silky texture and a healthy and shiny appearance.
Unlike straightening, classic hair means, like straightening iron alone, the Yuko system takes care of all the depths. There is no danger of burning and it beautifies the hair in the long run.
Good to know: The Japanese straightening hair can be washed 2 days after the application of the technique. To enjoy the best results and an always glamorous hairstyle, take after each application of shampoo the completeness of your hair.
Smooth hair retains its silky and shiny appearance permanently. And that even under extreme humidity conditions as well as on the beach or in the rain!
Japanese Permanent Hair Straightening
I did Japanese permanent hair straightening, aka thermal reconditioning, in mid-September. How it works is:
Your hair shaft has two types of bonds that contribute to its shape. Hydrogen bonds, and disulphide bonds. Hydrogen bonds change your hair shape temporarily and can be affected by moisture and heat, hence frizzy hair on humid days and curling or straightening with flat irons. Disulphide bonds are very strong and maintain a permanent shape, unless you break them apart with chemicals.
Japanese permanent hair straightening uses a chemical to break apart those bonds. The stylist then straightens the hair with an iron, setting the shape you what your hair to maintain, and then reseals the bonds with another chemical, permanently locking your hair into that new shape.
This salon in particular also adds a treatment to the hair before resealing it to keep it as moisturized, soft, and silky as possible.
You’re not supposed to do it if your hair has been dyed a lot since it can damage the hair, so not everyone is able to get this type of straight perm. Before this I had only ever done one salon treatment, never colored my hair, and very rarely even straightened or blow dried it. But my frizz was crazy! I’ve had exactly zero issues with frizz in the two months since getting the straight perm.
You can also choose levels of how straight you want your hair to be. Since I have bangs I wanted those to look more natural rather than be perfectly straight, so they didn’t apply the full strength treatment there.
I am still able to do some temporary hair curling (via those hydrogen bonds), although it really doesn’t stay for any significant length of time at all. If I let me hair dry in a braid it will still come out a bit wavy, but not as wavy as before, and it doesn’t last as long. And since I do tuck my hair behind my ears almost all the time, the little wispy hair there now retains that behind-the-ear curl shape.
