YUKO Hair Straightening
Why Permanently Straighten Hair?
Why YUKO Permanent Hair Straightening?
YUKO Permanent Hair Straightening is regarded as de facto gold standard in the Japanese hair straightening treatments. Hair can be damaged when the hair cuticles are torn or when there is a loss of protein from within the hair shaft. Yuko's unique hair care system restores those nutrients to the hair by using a specially designed iron, heated to 180º C, to heat-seal collagen, keratin, silk protein, and other proteins that are naturally present in the hair. Finishing off with proven treatments, hair is left feeling noticeably healthier and shinier! Treatment is performed in 10 steps by YUKO™ trained hair and beauty professional and takes around 4-5 hours. A free consultation prior to booking the appointment is recommended. It helps to analyse the hair and enable us to choose the appropriate products and technique for your hair depending on hair condition, texture and porosity
Is YUKO™ hair straightening different from Brazilian treatments?
YUKO™ hair straightening permanently straightens hair by physically changing the internal structure. Hair texture and the speed of growth, amongst the other factors, will determine how often you should have your hair straightened. Brazilian/Keratin treatments temporarily coat hair with keratin to smooth hair. Brazilian/Keratin treatments will wash out after an average of 3 months, so you must visit a salon often to re-coat the hair with this method. Brazilian/Keratin treatments may contain hazardous chemicals which release highly carcinogenic gas.
How long does YUKO hair straightening last?
What aftercare advice should I follow after Permanent Hair Straightening Treatment?

Keep your hair as straight as possible i.e. refrain from using hair clips, putting hair behind ears and avoid wearing hats or other head wears for at least 48 hours after the treatment.
Do not colour your hair for at least 2 weeks after the straightening.To keep your hair maintained, use a deep-conditioning hair mask once a week.
