You must have seen the rise of Japanese hair straightening salons everywhere these days but there are always two sides of the story in every new invention. Below are the pros and cons of this hair straightening practice.
Pros of Japanese Hair Straightening
Silky and Smooth Appearance
One of the best pros of this treatment is of course a silky and smooth appearance of your hair, especially if you had very curly or wavy hair previously. You will start loving your glossy and sleek hair more than ever which are also very easy to manage as well.
Enjoy a New Look
Your look completely gets changed with straight hair which seems quite composed and decent as compared to your previous look. You no more need to worry about a messy look if you could not get time to brush your hair after every few hours as straight and silky hair looks beautiful even in messed condition.
You Can Try Any New Hair Styles
The best part of Japanese hair straightening and also keratin treatment is that you can try any hair style on your hair without getting worried about how it will look in the end. There are some limitations with wavy and curly hair when it comes to styling but you are free to play with your hair after getting this treatment.
The Method is Safe for the Health of Your Hair
No doubt this method is considered as safest for hair health among many other straightening methods available in market. It uses keratin application which is a naturally occurring protein and proves to be great for healthy and smooth hair quality. Also, keratin itself is very effective for hair treatment which means no harsh chemicals are being applied to your hair causing any damage to your hair or scalp.
The Process is Long Lasting
Generally it is said to last for up to six months but even after that, you just need the root touching for newly grown hair as other hair are still of the same quality with silky and shiny appearance. This means you don’t need to worry about your hair for more than a year and can enjoy a beautiful and fresh look of your hair for a long time.
Cons of Japanese Hair Straightening
The Process is Not Suitable for Weak and Thin Hair
It is because the heating process used in this method is quite extensive which may lead to even thinner and weaker hair in the end. This is why your salon representative will always check your hair quality before recommending this procedure and won’t suggest you to have this if your hair are already very weak.
You May Face Hair Loss and Damage
It is very common to look for discounted deals in any salon when you intend to have this treatment. However, it might be risky as well if you mistakenly choose the wrong salon or an inexperienced hairstylist. Their products might be not up to the mark or a fresh stylist may mistakenly apply high amount of heat to your hair as well. So it is better to be safe than sorry and check feedback of both a salon and their stylists before you go for any such treatment.
This Procedure is Costly
No doubt a good treatment will always cost you a good amount for better results so this procedure is also quite costly. Not only procedure itself but the post care is also very expensive as you have to buy selected shampoos, conditioners and hair masks for retaining these shiny and glossy hair. Also, retouching the roots cost you a good enough amount as well that you might have to spend after six to seven months.
Your Hair Structure and Bonding is Changed Permanently
The worst con of Japanese hair straightening is that your hair bonds and hair structures are completely changed and unfortunately this change is also permanent for your hair. You cannot have your previous hair bonding back which means it will not be possible to regain your hair volume and body once this procedure is done. So, make sure to not forget discussing this with your stylist in detail no matter how famous that permanent hair straightening salon Potomac is or how expert stylists are available there.
