YUKO Hair Straightening

Why Permanently Straighten Hair?

The most common concern women have about their unruly hair is that they are required to be restyled every morning, would get frizzy and uncontrollable after getting wet. Chemically straightening your hair removes kinks, curls and waves, leaving it poker straight (or you can choose natural straight), super silky, much more manageable and frizz free. Permanently straightened hair are smoother and more manageable so they be can easily be arranged in whatever style you desire. You are not limited to have just the straightened hair look. As you will need to use little or no straighter after the treatment, the styling time is considerably reduced. Imagine the extra time you can spend elsewhere without having to spend time to tame the frizzy hair after wash. Washed hair can be left to air dry without having to worry about frizziness or humidity. A must have for a busy lifestyle and whilst on holidays.

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?

YUKO hair straightening is a permanent rebonding treatment so the hair that are treated with this method are straightened permanently. A revisit is required after 6-12 months depending on the rate at which your hair grows. As the new hair that grows after the treatment grows according to your natural hair type and texture.

What aftercare advice should I follow after Permanent Hair Straightening Treatment?

  • Please do not shampoo your hair for at least 48 hours after having permanent straightening.
  • Avoid any form of moisture e.g. excessive perspiration and saunas etc for at least 48 hours after the 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.
