The Japanese Hair Straightening system, also know as Yuko system or thermal reconditioning was created in Japan in 1996 by Yuko Yamashita, hence its name. The process can be thought of as the reverse of permanent waving. The process takes between 3-5 hours to complete and can be summarised in the following steps:
We start with a consultation to gain as much information as possible on the hair history, e.g. whether it has been coloured or bleached, chemically treated, e.g. permed or straightened, scalp condition, any irritations or allergies.
We will also perform a strand test at this stage if necessary. If we are happy that your hair is suitable for the treatment then we will proceed to the next steps.
