Previously years, we’ve seen texture services evolve from double-piggy-back spiral perms to the hugely popular Japanese Relaxer. Ancient Egyptian women used mud and clay setting their hair in curls and dried them in the sun. My mother ironed her hair on an ironing board once the 60’s required texture go the other direction.
As we around the corner on the very first decade of the brand new millennium, it seems that fashion has found a happy medium, exploring all variations and combinations of texture. Despite the welcome arms of a social green movement that says “natural is sexy”, women’s lust for the trendier side of the fence hasn’t faltered. “Natural-looking” is good, too. Thank God. While a good perm is getting increasingly difficult to get, a fine-haired girl’s desire for volume, body and bounce has not. A stylist who is able to roll out an exceptional permanent wave is just a treasure indeed. The other side of campus, however, is coping with out-of-control curly hair that fearless stylists must take either scorching heat or caustic chemicals to whip into shape.
What I can see from listening to the savvy ladies in my chair for the reason that they want the silky hair of their dreams with ever elusive “wash-and-go” potential. These gals are well versed in options using their given hair texture, and have traveled nearly all of hell’s-half-acre to get the answer. They want hair they can wear super straight or with a beachy wave, with enough body to hold a curl as well. The wonder industry has expanded is borders and created some incredible variety for a fashion forward person who wants to control or create the texture of their dreams. The two hair relaxing (chemical straightening) services most asked about in salons today are the Japanese Relaxer and the Brazilian Blow-dry.
The Japanese Relaxer (also called Yuko, Liscio, STR8) is the heavy hitter of salon services. Because of the dual chemical processes (dismantling the blocks of the hair and restructuring them in smooth, straight lines) hair is sleek as a pane of glass, forever and ever, until it grows out. Of which point the texture can be maintained by “retouching” or only applying the chemical to the new growth. This really is the top PERMANENT chemical straightening for overly curly, coarse, or kinky hair textures. After this service, hair will dry to be super smooth, shiny, and straight. One major downside is a strong type of re-growth, which can be where your natural texture grows in and requires thermal straightening (blow-drying and flat-ironing) to match straightened hair. visit this site right here
