WHEN I GET THE NEW GROWTH RETREATED, WOULD THEY DO ALL THE HAIR AGAIN? 150 150 Crystal

WHEN I GET THE NEW GROWTH RETREATED, WOULD THEY DO ALL THE HAIR AGAIN?

No, just the new growth and the transition between Straightened and new growth is treated.  The other hair is protected by using oil or conditioner so the solution will not saturate into the previously straightened hair.  If there is still curl or wave in the previously treated hair or more than 4 month after previous hair straightening, special solution will be applied, but for a shorter period of time.

Crystallizing special solution is designed for treated hair, and this will give more protein to your hair to refresh previous hair straightening.  Also we will iron the whole hair again, or otherwise the transition between will have unwanted line.  Note: the retouch is often more difficult to perform, so it is strongly recommended that you go back to the same stylist as before or find someone better if you were not happy with your first straightening!

I HAVE COLOR IN MY HAIR. WILL THAT MATTER? 150 150 Crystal

I HAVE COLOR IN MY HAIR. WILL THAT MATTER?

Tints and semi-permanent hair color that deposits color are not usually any problem at all.  If you have had your hair dyed black in the past, please let your Stylist know as this can sometimes cause problems.

CAN I STILL GET JAPANESE HAIR STRAIGHTENING EVEN IF I HAVE HIGHLIGHTS? 150 150 Crystal

CAN I STILL GET JAPANESE HAIR STRAIGHTENING EVEN IF I HAVE HIGHLIGHTS?

Highlights can be very tricky.  When hair is highlighted, usually bleach is involved.  This can make the timing judgement very difficult because some hairs are lightened right next to hair that is not lightened.  Therefore the hair may process faster where highlights are present and need much more time where the hair is dark and unprocessed.  In order not to over process the light hair, the solution should be to rinse out and the darker, healthier hair may not take.  A prior consultation with your stylist is strongly recommended to determine whether Japanese Hair Straightening will be a applicable for those with highlighted hair.

CAN I STILL GET JAPANESE HAIR STRAIGHTENING EVEN IF MY HAIR HAS BEEN BLEACHED? 150 150 Crystal

CAN I STILL GET JAPANESE HAIR STRAIGHTENING EVEN IF MY HAIR HAS BEEN BLEACHED?

Usually not.  The highlights often contain bleach so it is imperative you see your stylist before the Straightening.  They may want to take some hairs of you and test them to make sure it will work well without any surprise.  Any good stylists should be happy to perform a test strand.

HOW MUCH WOULD JAPANESE HAIR STRAIGHTENING COST? 150 150 Crystal

WHY DOES IT COST SO MUCH? 150 150 Crystal

WHY DOES IT COST SO MUCH?

The process usually takes from 3 to 6 hours straight to be performed.  You may be able to find this service for less, but be aware this is an extremely difficult and precise treatment to perform and those who charge less often are less competent.  Liscio is a very high quality product and the raw cost of this product is also very high. However, this ensures your hair will not be damaged as much as other products.

WILL I GET ANY BREAKAGE AS A RESULT OF A BAD STRAIGHTENING? 150 150 Crystal

WILL I GET ANY BREAKAGE AS A RESULT OF A BAD STRAIGHTENING?

It would be possible.  If the stylist does not have enough knowledge on the hair straightening, you could get breakage from these treatments, although it rarely happens with trained and competent stylists.

WHEN I GO BACK FOR THE REGROWTH, WOULD IT COST LESS? 150 150 Crystal

WHEN I GO BACK FOR THE REGROWTH, WOULD IT COST LESS?

Usually not.  The same amount of time would be involved with the retouch, often the cost will be the same as the first Straightening.  All the hair will still have to be ironed although the solution would be mainly on the roots.
