Japanese Hair Straightening

Japanese hair straightening is a popular way of permanently straightening hair that originated in Japan in the 1990’s. It promises to turn wavy, coarse, or curly hair into pin-straight locks by treating the hair with chemicals which break the protein bonds in the hair that give it its shape. This process is also known as “thermal reconditioning” since it also uses very special flat irons that heat to precise temperatures to complement the work of the chemical solution. This straightening process first became popular in the United States in New York City in the early 2000’s.

The Benefits

This permanent hair straightening process has many benefits such as a sleek, frizz free look. The greatest benefit is likely to be time saved each day on not having to fight to dry, wavy or curly hair with a blow dryer and brush. Hair that has been straightened by thermal reconditioning is much quicker to dry. It requires very little attention out of the shower, giving you a professional look with minimal effort. You are also saved from the hassle of fighting frizz from humidity or physical activity.

How It Works

The Japanese hair straightening process is extensive, taking at least 3 to 4 hours. It can take up to 8 hours depending on the length, thickness, and condition of the hair being treated. The key to this method of hair straightening is the special solution that chemically alters the bonds (disulfide/cystine) which give shape to the individual strands of hair. This allows for the hair to be permanently straightened.

Due to the risks involved with the process (you are making a permanent change to your hair, or at least to the hair that is on your head at the time of the procedure), please contact us for a consultation before scheduling your appointment for thermal reconditioning. This is a crucial step as not all hair types can be helped by this technique.

Hair Styles that Will Benefit the Most

Certain types of hair will benefit the most from Japanese hair straightening, and some types should not even consider the process. In general, this procedure is a good fit for those with loose curls or wavy hair who are tired of using a flat iron every day. Your hair should be at least 5-6 inches long before being considered as well. If you have recently had your hair colored, bleached, or relaxed, be sure to tell us as these processes affect the health of your hair. Moving forward with the Japanese hair straightening process will require extra care and consideration. We may recommend another straightening procedure altogether.

Touch ups are typically needed anywhere from 6 to 9 months later depending on the amount of curl in the new growth. These should take less time than the original visit and cost significantly less as well.

Testimonials

Was a pleasure to go to. I didn’t have to wait in line because Jelly is appointment only. Got a great haircut at a great price!

ChrisClient

I had been wanting to get my hair thermal reconditioned for many years now.I finally decided to do it with Jelly three days ago. I had previously colored hair, and I also had had a keratin treatment (Brazilian Blowout) done a few years ago, but she managed to mix up a perfect mixture of strengths of the chemicals that worked for my hair. She also used Liscio, which was a product that I was specifically hoping for. I am very glad I went to Jelly to get my hair straightened, I would definitely recommend her. My hair has remained straight after my first shower today, and in humidity in previous days. She also gave us an excellent deal on the price. Don’t be afraid to get your hair Japanese straightened anymore!

EmilyClient

I like Jelly. She is very professional and very nice. I wish I can see her more often. Maybe somebody else can charge you only few dollars for the haircut, but I am willing to pay Jelz for her services because she is so positive and professional.

MaximClient

The best hairstylist you don’t want to miss. I went to Jelly three years back for hair rebonding. I have thick asian hair and she did an excellent job and my hair was so shiny soft and straight. From then on, I have been an ardent customer of hers. I have done several rebonding and colouring and she treats my hair with wonderful percision and care. On top of that; she has a good eye on haircuts and does an excellent job. I am happy to say that she is my family’s special hairdresser.

UmaClient

I went to Jelz Straight Salon to have my hair rebonded. I have thick asian hair that has been damaged from previous hair treatments. At first I was a little bit skeptical as to how my hair would turn out. But Jelly did not disappoint me! My hair is now soft and smooth! She also assured me that cutting my hair short because of all the damage will be the best decision and I trusted her on that! I was very nervous, but she gave me a really nice haircut that fits my taste. I am now loving my new look! I would definitely recommend her! Professional and such a sweet lady!

CheskaClient

Jelly did my hair and make up for my wedding and reception and it was nothing short of breathtaking. Everyone complimented me on my look and I couldn’t have been happier!
