Japanese Hair straightening, also known as Thermal Reconditioning, is a hair treatment which uses heat to restructure the hair making it straight and free of kinks and curl. Now, like with any type of permanent hair treatment there are benefits as well as drawbacks. So if you are undecided take a look at the charts below to help determine if Japanese Hair Straightening is for you.

Benefits

  • Long lasting results – from 4-9 months
  • Leaves hair silky smooth, shiny and straight
  • Reduces Frizz

Drawbacks

  • Expensive – you are looking at anywhere from approx $350 – $1500. This depends on a few factors such as; the Salon, length of hair, time it takes to apply the treatment.
  • Upkeep/more cost – touch ups about every 4-6 months depending on how quickly your hair grows, your hair type and tightness of curl. It is highly recommended that you use specifically designed after care products.
  • Time Consuming – Again, depending on the length, type and curl of your hair it can take anywhere from 3+ hours.

So it really depends from person to person on weather or not this treatment is for you. Some may rather stick to using there hair straightner and enjoy the benefits of being able to go curly or straight and with out the hassle of on going cost and touch ups. However Japanese hair straightening is a great option for those who find a hair iron just doesn’t work on their hair type or is too time consuming.
