Click Arrows To See Before and After Hair Straightening
I had the Pravana straightening completed on Thursday. It's now Saturday and have not shampooed yet. I love the shine and texture! I have fine, but thick and wavy hair that I washed every other day and used the flat iron. In humidity or left without blow-drying in the past, it was a wavy, frizzy mess and the entire great cut totally vanished. I also have color-treated light brown hair with golden/carmel highlights, which have lightened somewhat...I love it! Seems to have brought out more of the subtle highlights! This is a great product!

You may keep hearing about Japanese Thermal Hair Straightening and wonder what it is exactly and if it would be a good idea for you to use this method to straighten your hair. The Japanese straightening method uses a combination of chemicals and professional hair straighteners to permanently remove the curl from hair. This of course will only work on the hair that is currently on your head. As your hair grows out the roots will not be straightened. This means that this process will need done about twice a year if you would like to keep this look going.
This process is not one that can be done at home and the cost can easily be $600 and take as long as 6 to 8 hours, so convenience is not a word that describes this chemical treatment. Much like a reverse perm with heat applied by a hair straightening iron included this is not a process you would want to sit through often. However there is hope. If you live in Las Vegas and are interested in having this process done please contact me. I use a Pravana Thermal Hair Straightening product, a process which is 100% as effective as the Japanese Thermal Hair Straightening process but cuts costs to half as much. The reason I can do this is because the Pravana Thermal Hair Straightener product I use cuts the time down to about 3 hours as opposed to 6 to 8 hours. Now for pricing your looking at $225, my base price and is for a maximum of 3 hours. Most hair will fall under this price however if you have extremly thick or long hair it is possible that the process will take more then 3 hours in which case I charge $37.50 for each additional half hour. To this point the longest process has been 4 hours. Also keep in mind since you just had your hair straightened that you are going to need a hair cut because your hair will be uneven. The cost of a cut is $45, for most the final cost ends up being $270.
OK, so now on to getting you that sexy straight hair, what exactly is involved in a Thermal Hair Straigtening process? Really it's just three basic steps. First after washing and conditioning your hair (don't you just love getting that done!) your hair is treated with a processing lotion to get the internal stresses of your hair relaxed. Next we are going to thermally reconstruct your hair. This is done with a hot cermaic flat iron. The last step is to apply a neutralizer. What this does is it permently locks the hair into a pin-straight configuration.
So what are you waiting for, come meet me and lets give you that sexy straight hair that you are looking for!
