beautiful woman with long, straight hairJust think about all the things you could do ... instead of straightening your hair!

Everyone knows at least one person who spends way too much time making frizzy, curly, unruly hair more manageable.

But there is a new and popular way to get your hair smooth, silky, glossy and straight with minimal damage, and without the use of harsh chemicals often found in hair relaxing treatments.

The buzz on Japanese hair straightening

Japanese hair straightening, or thermal conditioning, has been around for about a decade now and remains very popular with women AND men who want to avoid the time and effort it takes in managing wavy, kinky, or curly hair. Most often in America, the "Yuko System" of hair straightening is employed, which actually started in Japan more than 20 years ago by Yuko Yamashita, the head beautician at a salon in Kyoto, Japan.

How long does it take?

This isn't for the do-it-yourself crew. It takes a trained and certified stylist to perform this procedure correctly.

In fact, make sure you schedule enought time to complete the process (you might have to hire babysitter, or take the entire day off of work) because it does take anywhere from four to eight hours -- depending on the length, thickness and condition of your hair -- to complete the entire process.

Who can have it done?

Whether you're Japanese, black, white or Hispanic, who can have this done is not an ethnic issue. It is a hair type issue. Almost anyone can benefit from this treatment.

How much does it cost?

Before you make the decision, ask a certified beautician for a preliminary consultation. A test strand can be taken to see if treatment will work on your hair type. You are going to be spending enough money, $400-$800 per procedure, that you want to know that you are going to get the results you want.

That is a substantial amount of money to spend on a hair treatment but it only has to be done twice to three times a year depending on hair growth. Even then, only the newly grown hair will need to be retreated.
