What is Hair Straightening?
Hair straightening treatments are chemical processes that restructure the hair. When the chemical solution breaks down the form of the hair strand, heat is applied to reform the strand in a straight configuration. The process is undertaken with a considerable examination of the hair and health of the client. This is so because there are different techniques used for different types of hair and depending on the health of the client..

Steps of Hair Straightening:
1. A chemical solution is used to change the way that the proteins in your hair are configured.
2. A neutralizer fixes the hair in its new appearance in perms and Japanese thermal straightening procedures. This neutralizer causes your hair to lock into its new shape, with new bonds forming between the protein molecules of your hair.
3. Several hours later, the chemical solution will infuse into the hair. Now, by applying the neutralizer, you can style your hair.
