Shiseido Permanent Hair Straightening
Q: How long will the Hair Straightening last?
A: Treated hair will remain straight forever and will not become curly or wavy again.
New growth that appears in the months following the Straightening will need to be Straightened again.
New growth usually needs to be straightened 3 to 6 months after the initial straightening.
Q: What will my hair look like after the Straightening?
A: Your hair will be straight, shinier and will feel soft and silky.
Q: Will I still need to blow-dry my hair after Straightening?
A: Sometimes yes, but just to get the moisture out.
This usually takes about 4 to 5 minutes instead of 45 minutes!
Some people will not need to blow-dry at all. In most cases, you will not need to brush.
Q: When I get the new growth retreated, would they do all the hair again?
A: 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 4month after previous hair straightening, special solution will be applied,
but for a shorter period of time.
Q: I have color in my hair. Will that matter?
A: 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
Q: Can I still get Japanese Hair Straightening even if I have highlights?
A: 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 wether Japanese
Hair Straightening will be a applicable for those with highlighted hair.
Q: Can I still get Japaense Hair Straightening even if my hair has been bleached?
A: 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.

WHAT IS A KERATIN TREATMENT?
A Keratin Smoothing Treatment is an in-salon non-permanent hair treatment that can:
- smooth the hair strands significantly
- eliminate frizzy
- make hair shiny
- reduce time needed to style hair
The process involves keratin molecules being deposited onto the hair strand, through an application and heating process, making hair stronger, smoother, and making styling a breeze!
- The hair is coated with a Keratin solution (keratin is the protein found in hair) which is then bonded to the hair cuticle using heat from hair dryer and from straightening irons.
- The hair structure is not altered.
- Typically treatments last between 8-16 weeks with the results tending to improve with each successive treatment.
We currently recommend Goldwell Kerasilk Keratin Treatment.
Kerasilk Keratin Treatments can be customised to suit your specific hair type as Kerasilk has two components to its solution. The first part shapes the hair and the second part smooths all of the hair cuticle. This means that you can still have body on the root and a slight curve under at the base if this is the style you want to try to maintain.
Our stylists will consult with you thoroughly to understand the look you are after to ensure you are 100% happy with your new head of glossy smooth hair.
There are many brands of keratin treatments on the market. We have tested many brands in our search for the best product that delivers excellent results. And we continue to keep searching so you can feel confident of always receiving the best available in the market place. So don’t be fooled into thinking that the cheapest price will get you the best outcome. Great keratin treatments that deliver outstanding results are more expensive. The life of all keratin treatments is extended by the use of appropriate keratin safe shampoos, conditioners and masks.
Kerasilk will last up to 3~4 months from first application with proper at home care.
Prescription shampoo, conditioner and heat protection are a must, and our keratin specialists will be able to recommend products to suit your hair and budget.. These products are designed to prolong the longevity of the keratin treatment and nourish your hair.
Brazilian Hair Straightening also known as Keratin Smoothing Treatment.
This form of keratin treatment originally emerged from Brazil. There are many brands of keratin treatment on the market today, not all offering the same levels of health and safety with some brands being taken off the market. We continually research and trial new brands of keratin treatment to ensure we offer our clients the most effective solution using the safest ingredients.
Sometimes it can feel like being the the “Wild West” trying to figure out what’s best – when you visit our salon you can relax in the knowledge you’re hair is in expert hands and you’re getting the best (and honest!) advice.
Q. Who is the best candidate for the Kerasilk Keratin Treatment / Brazilian Blowout?
A. It has been our experience, that good candidates for the Brazilian Blowout are anyone who has frizzy, damaged or processed hair. We have performed the treatment on every hair type (fine/course/frizzy/curly), as well as hair that has beenpermed, Japanese straightened and extensions. In doing so, we have found that with proper communication and a well considered application, everyone can benefit from the Brazilian Blowout smoothing treatment.
Q. What kind of look will you get from the Kerasilk Keratin Treatment?
A. The hair will be left totally frizz-free, shiny, effortlessly manageable and with plenty of body and bounce. There will still be the option to wear hair curly/wavy (depending on the hair type) and the freedom to blow dry hair smooth and straight in a fraction of the time invested prior to receiving the treatment.
Q. Can I still receive a Kerasilk Keratin Treatment if I have highlights and/or color?
A. Yes, the Kerasilk Keratin Treatment will actually improve the health of color-treated/highlighted hair by conditioning the hair while sealing the cuticle for enhanced color, reduced frizz and radiant shine.
Q. Is the Kerasilk Keratin Treatment going to make my hair straight?
A. If your hair is wavy, the Kerasilk Keratin Treatment will make your hair appear naturally straight and healthy. If your hair is very curly, it will minimize frizz while enhancing the appearance of the natural wave/curl. If you have straight, frizzy hair, this treatment will eliminate frizz and promote radiant shine.
Q. How long does the Brazilian Blowout last?
A. The Kerasilk Keratin Treatment will last for 3 ~ 5 month if the Açai After-Care Maintenance product line is used. The Kerasilk Keratin Treatment is a cumulative treatment, in that the more you receive it, the healthier the hair will be and the longer the result will last.
Q. Can you apply the Kerasilk Keratin Treatment directly on top of other relaxers and strengtheners?
A. Yes. The Kerasilk Keratin Treatment actually works best on chemically treated hair, and helps to improve the hairs condition by fortifying each strand with essential amino acids.
The Kerasilk Keratin Treatment works great directly on top of a relaxer. Perform the relaxer first, Brazilian Blowout next, and then neutralize at the very end of both treatments.
The Kerasilk Keratin Treatment is great to perform when someone is trying to move away from having relaxers or Japanese straighteners. It puts movement back into the hair, allowing the hair to look its best.
Q. Will my hair lose volume if I receive the Kerasilk Keratin Treatment?
A. No, your hair will not lose volume as a result of receiving the Brazilian Blowout. Your hair will maintain its natural volume and you will still receive great bend and memory when blow-drying and/or using a curling iron.
Q. Can you color your hair the same day you receive a Kerasilk Keratin Treatment?
A. Yes, however, you must color your hair prior to having the Kerasilk Keratin Treatment smoothing treatment. If you get a Kerasilk Keratin Treatment and wish to get a color service at a later date, you will need to wait 2 weeks.
