What is Japanese Hair Straightening / TR (Thermal Reconditioning)?

It is a revolutionary process that originated in Japan to permanently straighten curly, wavy, and frizzy hair. A combination of both chemicals and heat is used to soften the bonds of the hair, reforming the bonds in a straight pattern. Once you have received the treatment, you will have a perfectly straight hair that's shiny, smooth, silky and more importantly healthier than before!

How long does the Japanese Hair Straightening process take?

Approximately 4-5 hours depending on the length, thickness and condition of the hair.

Can the JHS process be done on color treated and/or highlighted hair?

It can be done on color treated hair, and hair that has been highlighted up to 50%. Consult with us, if you have a full head of highlights, double processed highlights or severely damaged hair.

Can it be done on hair that has Henna color?

JHS cannot be done on hair that has a Henna product or any other metallic dyes or color restorers. If you are unsure about a color you've used in the past, consult with your stylist. BKT can be done on hair that has Henna, no problem.

Can JHS / BKT be done over a relaxer?

JHS cannot be done over hair that has been relaxed with products containing sodium hydroxide or any other metallic hydroxides. However, JHS is compatible with other thio or cystine based relaxers. BKT may be done on previously relaxed hair.

How soon before or after the JHS / BKT can color be performed?

We usually recommend waiting a minimum of 2 weeks before or after the JHS / BKT is performed. However, we do not recommend home coloring and suggest having your hair professionally colored as special precautions need to be taken.

How long do I wait to wash my hair after the JHS or BKT?

Do not shampoo within 72 hours after the Japanese Hair Straightening / Brazilian Keratin Treatment, nor wet your hair or exercise within 48 hours. Do not ponytail or tuck your hair behind your ears. Also do not put pins, clips, rubber bands, barrettes on hair as it may leave a kink in the hair. Last but not least, do not swim for 2 weeks.

How long will the JHS / BKT last?

The Japanese Hair Straightening is permanent so it will stay straight until it's grown out or cut off. When the new growth comes out, it will need to be touched up anywhere between 4-6 months after. However with the BKT, it will gradually and naturally fade out of the hair returning back to your original curls, waves, or hair texture.

Is the entire hair redone when I get the JHS done on the new growth, and how long does it take?

Most times just the new growth is done and the previously done hair is protected with Keratin and protective cream products. If the hair reverts back, solution can be applied for a shorter period of time. Time wise, it will take about the same amount of time or sometimes even longer depending on the condition of the hair, as the hair texture may now be different, and the previously processed hair needs to be protected. All hair is then ironed and neutralized for a seamless blend.

How do you recommend I maintain at home after the JHS or the BKT?

Milbon's Créde Ft shampoo and Créde Er treatment have been specially formulated to enhance the soft and weightless feel of the hair, as well as maintain the manageability and silky feel. These products are designed to be used after the Japanese Hair Straighening and will maintain your beautiful, straight hairstyle. For the Brazilian Keratin Treatment, we recommend the Global Keratin shampoo and conditioner. Because some shampoos and conditioners have adverse effects on the hair after it has been thermally reconditioned, it is recommended you follow a strict routine with regard to shampoo and conditioner.

How much does the JHS and the BKT cost?

Our prices for the JHS start from $150 depending on the hair length, thickness, and condition of the hair. And the BKT costs $100 and up.

Can I swim in a pool or the salt water after the JHS / BKT?

Do not swim in a chlorinated pool or salt water for at least two weeks after your Liscio straightening. You should also avoid extensive exposure to the sun during this time.

What questions should I find out from the stylist during the JHS / BKT consultation?

You should ask the stylist what products they use, and if he/she has received training from the manufacturer of their product. You may also want to ask how long they have been performing the service, as experience is very important.
