Permanent Yuko Hair Straightening
YUKO Hair Straightening System
Yuko hair straightening is an excellent
alternative to hot irons and it can turn damaged hair into healthy
glossy hair. Yuko is highly favoured by professionals and
celebrities; it actually restores damaged hair, straightens frizzy
curly and wavy hair, leaving a radiant shine and very natural
Yuko hair straightening system is a
chemical process that permanently straightens your hair. It smoothes
curly, dry, unruly hair permanently with a revolutionary
straightening system that uses heat to restructure the hair's
protein bond. The result is smooth, sleek, shiny, straight,
regenerated hair that will be a real 'head-turner'.
Yuko System was born in Japan, as was Ms.
Yuko Yamashita, who created the system in 1996 with the intent "to create a
non-coating, straightening system that uses the heat oxidation
process to seal in and rebuild hair from the inside out."
It is a permanent hair straightening system
which works on most hair types and leaves your hair straight glossy
smooth and straight. Compared to straightening irons which have to
be used nearly every day to create straight hair, the Yuko system
lasts between 6 and 12 months and only needs to be redone when you
have significant hair growth. Your hair has to be at least 4 or 5
inches long for the system to work and can be done on coloured hair.
The protein-based professional Yuko System
uses heat iron to seal in moisture then relies on the hair's small
amount of "living body electricity" to cut off the hair's cystine
bone, reshaping it to appear straight. Heat consolidates the
straightening process - REPAIRING and REGENERATING hair.
The shine and softness are evident. Salon
professionals and the customer both love the system's results. This
goes against the notion that straightened hair is damaged hair: the
result is hair that can breathe from a lack of coating, and a hair
shaft that is rejuvenated for the first time.
The process can take anywhere from 3 to 5
hours depending on the length and condition of the hair. The cost
can be anywhere between £300 to £600. The success of this treatment
is very dependant on the expertise of the hairdresser performing it.

coloured, it is done at least two weeks before or two weeks after
the straightening is done. Highlighted hair may or may not be
suitable. Highlighted Hair is considered to be damaged Hair
regardless of it's strength or appearance. Straightening this hair
type of hair requires specialized skills and special chemicals. We

permanently. However, newly grown hair will again have natural curl.
I recommend that you receive a touch-up treatment every six months,
but the exact interval will vary depending on the degree of curl and
length of the hair.
Q: How often will I need to redo the Hair Straightening?
A: The average length of time between Hair Straightening services
may vary but it's around 6 months. Your unique hair texture, speed
of growth, and ability to work with the new growth will ultimately
determine the length of time for you. Hair straightening retouches
are done to the new-growth only. On some rare occasions it will be
necessary to re-treat the previously Straightened Hair.

A: The average curly Hair client spends at least thirty minutes

achieve their desired style in ten minutes or less. This time may
increase slightly as your new Hair grows back, but should never take
as long as your pre-straightened time.

are wavy or curly, bending outward. Various lengths of Straightened
Hair lay parallel to each other and usually go unnoticed.

Q: Does Yuko System Hair Straightening really improve Hair
A: Yes, in most cases. In addition to a Hair Straightening system,
Yuko System is a Thermal Reconditioning and repair system. By fusing
proteins into the hair thermally, the Hair is strengthened
internally while the cuticle layers are pressed smooth providing
increased shine and softness.
Q: I've heard of some stylists breaking the Hair off during or after
the Hair straightening. How can I avoid such this situation?
A: Unfortunately this has happened to some. Choosing a skilled and
experienced Hair Straightening technician is the best insurance for
you. Breakage usually occurs following the service as a result of
stylist errors. Our experience, knowledge of chemicals, proper
assessment of the client's Hair and careful approach in high risk
situations insures that damage is not a concern. FYI - Be sure to
find out how many Hair Straightening your stylist has performed and
how long they have been doing it. You certainly don't want to be
part of their "learning curve".
Q: Is there anything I shouldn't do with my hair after having it
A: For 48 hours after having the straightening done you should
avoid doing anything with your hair that you would not want to
remain there, e.g. crimps from rubber bands, clips and hats. You
should not wash your hair for the first 48 hours after the
straightening. You should not colour your hair for at least 2 weeks
after having the straightening done. You are encouraged to
smooth your Hair after sleeping as well. After the first 48 hours
you may do anything you wish with your new Hair.
Q: Will my hair be flat after the Hair Straightening service?
A: Yes! Finally. For the first few weeks your newly Straightened
Hair may be a bit flat. However, after just a few weeks of new
growth you will enjoy some volume on top while maintaining smooth,
sleek ends! Your newly Straightened Hair will still respond to the
use of heat and tools such as curling irons and round brushes.
Therefore, you may achieve a curly or wavy style on occasion should
Q: Are there special products to use following the Hair
A: It is a good idea to use the prescribed home care products
following the service in order to maintain the condition of your new
shiny, reconditioned, Straightened Hair. We shall be happy to
recommend a product that will be suitable for your hair type and
Q: How much does Permanent Yuko Hair Straightening cost?
A: We like to keep our Hair Straightening prices at a flat rate. We
don't start low and raise it once we see you. Also, we are not out
to compete in a price war with less expensive and less talented
stylists. We aren't out be to be the cheapest nor the most expensive
and there are many stylists out there who charge less and some who
charge more. Our prices are at the industry standard for a beginner.
Obviously we are anything like beginners, we are experts, so we
charge what we think is fair considering our skill level is worth so
much more. What's a £50 savings if your hair gets ruined? Hair
Straightening is always £160, even for a retouch, due to the fact
that Straightening the re growth is just as time consuming (about 4
hours) as the initial Hair Straightening. On some rare occasions,
like in the case of extremely long/dense hair, the cost could
increase by no more than £50. Drew has only charged this additional
amount a handful of times.
Q: How long will it take to get an appointment?
A: Usually a week or two. Saturdays book a little further out
because most of our clients work or go to school. Some people don't
want to wait that long but we want to bring to your attention that
any stylist who has four hours to spare to Straighten your Hair at a
moments notice is probably someone who is not in demand and you
probably don't want to be the one to find out why? Plan ahead.
Q: Do these answers apply to any other stylist?
A: No!!! For one reason, another Hair Stylist may shy away from
straightening colour treated or over-processed Hair. Also, Yuko
System is a tool and is only as good as the person using it!!
Q: What other names are used to describe Japanese Hair
A: Japanese Hair Straightening, Japanese Straightening, Bio Ionic
Hair Retexturising, Thermal Restructuring, Rebonding, Thermal
Reconstruction, Liscio Japanese Hair Straightening, Shiseido
Crystallizing, Liscio Hair Straightening, Thermal Reconditioning,
Ionic Straightening, Japanese Straightening, Japanese Style Hair
Straitening, Yuko Hair Straightening and Yuko System.
Q: Why are the old type of relaxers so damaging?
A: Most relaxers contain corrosive ingredients such as Sodium
Hydroxide, Potassium Hydroxide, Lithium Hydroxide, Calcium Hydroxide
etc. These ingredients corrode the hair to the point where it is
able to be changed to a straight look. These products leave the hair
feeling like straw and the curl comes back after an often short
period of time.
