     If your hair is curly you probably won’t lost your curl.  When you have Keratin Hair straightening you can't use sodium chloride shampoo which is like every shampoo over the counter at stores except some children shampoos.  For those people that want to get the straight look and free frizz hair without long term commitment we recommend the Keratin hair straightening.
     Japanese hair straightening is a method of transforming even the curliest locks into pin-straight hair. This is a very intensive process that leaves the hair completely straight, and feeling silky and smooth with a glossy appearance. It works by breaking down the hydrogen bonds in the hair's cortex to remove all curl and waves. Since this is a permanent restructuring of your hair, it will last until new hair growth.

    Results may vary, depending on the density of your curls and condition of the hair.

    Most women are candidates for thermal straightening, including those with virgin African-American (not relaxed), Black, Asian, Middle Eastern, Norwegian, Caucasian, and Latina-type hair. Hair that has been use high lifting color, highlighted, permed or relaxer may not be suitable for JHS. 
    What to expect  in the salon?
    Prior to the services a consultation need to be done to determine whether or not it is suitable for JHS. The process can take 4 to 5 hour to complete, depending on the length and condition of hair. Plan ahead and clear your schedule, so you can have a stress-free experience.   
    During the treatments process, special products are applied to relax and break down the bonds of the hair. Afterwards, hair is dried and straightened with a flat iron.   Post treatments we request the following:
