Everything you need to know about Permanent Hair Straightening, Japanese Hair Straightening and poker straight hair!
Japanese or Permanent Hair Straightening
The first thing to know about Japanese or Permanent Hair Straightening is that it is very different from a Keratin Hair Treatment. At Lily Jackson Hair & Makeup we offer both Japanese Permanent Hair Straightening AND Keratin Hair Smoothing.
The second thing to know is that Japanese Hair Straightening is a patented permanent hair straightening system but not all permanent hair straightening systems are Japanese (if that makes sense!).
What is Japanese Hair Straightening
At Lily Jackson Hair & Makeup we offer a patented Japanese Hair Straightening system, which is recognised as the leading brand of chemical hair straightening that gives you low maintenance, shiny, hassle-free straight hair. The solutions used in the Permanent Hair Straightening permanently straightens the hair by physically changing the internal structure of the hair. During the service we apply heat with a flat iron, creating a permanent straight shape.
This is very different to a Keratin Hair Smoothing Treatment which we also offer and one of our experienced stylists can help guide you in making the right choice.
What’s so special about our Japanese Hair Straightening?
The brand of Japanese hair straightening we use is Yuko Hair Straightening.
In addition to being a state-of-the-art hair straightening system, the patented Yuko Hair Straightening system is also a recognised technique of restoring health to hair.
The proprietary ingredient that makes YUKO Hair Straightening more special than any other system is “Aqua Gold”.
Most Yuko products contain Aqua Gold. Adding “Aqua Gold” into the solution makes any water 100% active. Aqua Gold becomes Colloidal gold when mixed with water. This type of gold is much more effective at delivering the ingredients used in permanent hair straightening into the hair strand.
It is estimated that it provides a 70%-80% greater advantage over other hair products that only use plain water. Acqua Gold ensures that the solution and treatment products used during a service penetrates every strand by supporting an ionic charge of each active ingredient enabling it to perform at its best.
Acqua Gold attracts, retains and balances moisture content of the hair which is essential for a glossy and moisturised finish.
Yuko Hair Straightening holds a patent in the US, as well as in Japan, New Zealand, Turkey and other countries.
