I bet you got annoyed about using the flat iron each morning, so here's a longer lasting hair straightening technique that will help you out in the everyday styling. Also called as yuko straightening, or thermal reconditioning, the Japanese hair straightening is one of the most long lasting ones at the moment. It takes from 2 to 6 hours to get it, but it lasts about one year. The procedure time depends on the hair's length and type.
It involves applying relaxers to your hair and treating it with chemicals. Than the hair is separated in stripes, ironed, rinsed and blow dried. After the treatment, keep your hair away from sun and make sure you moisturize it well.
