Yuko hair straightening is a Japanese method of permanent hair straightening. It is very different from the traditional Keratin hair straightening method as this one is permanent.
What is Japanese hair straightening?
Japanese hair straightening is a patented method that leaves patients with beautifully straight hair. The best part about it all is that it is extremely low maintenance and results in a lovely, shiny look. It is also recognized as the leading method of chemical hair straightening.
What’s special about the Yuko method is that it is also recognized as being a great way to restore health to hair. Our everyday lives can be quite messy and often our hair doesn’t get the treatment that it deserves.
That is why the renowned Yuko method is so beneficial for everyone as it provides patients with not only permanently straight hair but also healthy hair.
The ingredient that makes the Yuko hair straightening treatment so good is ‘Aqua Gold’. This solution makes any water 100% active and it becomes colloidal when added to water. What this does is it makes the ingredients a lot more effective at getting into the actual hair strand to straighten the hair and it why it lasts so much longer.
This method is supposed to improve the effectiveness of the hair straightening process by anywhere between 70% and 80% when compared to other products. The Yuko method maintains moisture and ensures that each and every hair strand is treated to achieve a glossy and straight finish.
How is it done?
Because of the thorough nature of the process it can take a few hours to complete. Whilst it may seem like it takes a long time, the results are extremely reliable and it leaves your hair straight for a very long time.
- Shampoo and pre-treatment
The first step is to make sure that the hair is clean and healthy. The hair is washed thoroughly with shampoo before being sprayed with some pre-treatments. The pre-treatments are designed to provide the hair with the necessary nutrients to maintain the permanent straightening.
- Straightening solution
This is the part where the Yuko hair straightening solution is applied to the hair. It is put on in parts and left to soak into and saturate the cuticle of the hair.
The solution is designed to change the internal structure of your hair which ultimately results in the hair bonds relaxing. The relaxed hair bonds then mean that the hair is able to remain straight.
- Rinsing off
The solution is rinsed off completely with water
- Blow dry and iron
The stylists will spray on a number of special treatments for the hair as well as some heat protectants as they blow dry and straighten the hair with an iron. The special treatment sprays ensure that the hair remains healthy whilst the ironing is what physically straightens the hair.
- Neutralising solution
In order to solidify the straightening process, a neutralizing solution is applied. This helps to condition the hair so that it remains healthy as well as helping in the final process of the hair straightening. This step takes a little while as the neutralizing solution is let to work.
- Blow dry and iron
The final stage in the process involves rinsing off the neutralizing solution and then applying a special conditioning treatment. The conditioning treatment is the final product added to the hair to help maintain its health. The hair is then blow dried and straightened again with an iron to result in the final look.
The overall process is very straight forward and the advanced Japanese process makes for a great success leaving the hair straight for a long time.
