YUKO Permanent Hair Straightening

YUKO hair straightening treatment is recognised worldwide as "Japanese Hair Straightening". YUKO and Momoko are the two most popular thermal reconditioning or permanent straightening treatments we offer at My Beauty Basics.


YUKO and Momoko treatments are safer alternates (Please check Frequently asked Questions section for more details on the difference) to the traditional straightening treatments known as Keratin treatment or Brazilian blow dry.

Japanese method is also based on Keratin as one of the important ingredient used during the treatment. It is however not the only ingredient that is used to achieve permanent straightening results. A few of the important ingredients in the YUKO products include. 

  • Hydrolysed Kertain which is similar to the proteins naturally found in the hair. It repairs the hair and improve elasticity.

  • Silylated Keratin coats the hair and gets heat activated to strengthen the hair during ironing.

  • Hydrolysed Silk is rich in amino acids which add moisture to make hair smooth and glossy.

  • Sodium Alginate which is naturally derived from seaweed, gives strength and volume to hair. 

Browse through the photos gallery for some of the results we have been able to achieve.

Book a "Free, no obligation to purchase" consultation session. Consultation visit is a must before treatment for new customers can be carried out. During the visit following activities are performed.

  • Hair are visually checked for their type, health, texture and length.


  • A test is performed on a small number of hair by applying different strengths of the straightening solutions. This step establishes the suitability of the treatment. Test results are used to provide guidance and advise on the results can be expected from the treatment. Patch test also determines if treatment should even be continued.

  • A price estimate is given depending on the health, texture and length of the hair. 


Although, in most cases we can perform the treatment on the same day as the consultation, it may be possible that you will need to come twice if a 4 hours slot is not available on the same day as consultation visit.
