The Japanese hair straightening method, or thermal reconditioning, is not new — although it is new in the Western Hemisphere. It originated in Japan in 1996 with the dawn of the Yuko system. The Yuko system uses heat to restructure the hair's protein bond, resulting in smooth, straight, shiny, and sleek hair.
Now, over a decade later, Japanese hair straightening has become a true beauty phenomenon. While all the terminology in this thermal reconditioning is enough to confuse anyone, you don't have to become an expert in order to make an informed decision about where to go for this treatment.
