WHAT IS YUKO HAIR STRAIGHTENING? HOW IS IT DIFFERENT FROM A BRAZILIAN BLOWOUT TREATMENT?
Patented and internationally renowned, YUKO hair straightening involves a collagen-containing solution and heat technology to reconstruct the hair’s protein bonds in order to reshape them. Rebuilding hair from the inside out, YUKO hair straightening restructures hair to make it lie flat and keep it permanently straight. Like Brazilian Blowouts, YUKO hair straightening can:
Work on all types of hair – This includes hair that’s curly, frizzy, straight, damaged, coarse, fine, etc. No matter how curly or unruly your hair is, YUKO will create the results you’ve always wanted.
Improve the health of hair – Both treatments condition hair, rather than damaging it.
Be tailored to fit according to hair type – Both treatments allow for custom solutions, instead of being one-size-fits-all type of treatments.
Unlike Brazilian Blowouts, YUKO hair straightening:
Provides more permanent results – While Brazilian Blowouts last about 12 weeks, YUKO can last for 6 to 12 months. Generally, it’s advised that clients maintain YUKO about every 8 months or so.
Does not retain original texture of hair – Brazilian Blowouts can eliminate frizz while preserving the hair’s natural wave and texture (to the extent a client wants). In contrast, YUKO will change the texture of hair in order to make it permanently straight.
HOW YUKO HAIR STRAIGHTENING WORKS: THE PROCESS & WHAT TO EXPECT
The first step in the YUKO hair straightening process is a consultation to evaluate the status of your hair (i.e., hair type, hair length, damage levels and dryness) and determine if YUKO is right for you. Typically, YUKO is not recommended for hair that is shorter than 5 inches and/or that is excessively damaged.
If YUKO is right for you, here’s what to expect during your YUKO hair straightening treatment at HQ Salon:
The pretreatment – This includes a wash and pre-treatment sprays to nourish your hair before the
processing solution is applied.
The YUKO solution application – Once applied to all of your hair, the solution will be left in your hair to saturate it and work its magic.
The rinse, blow dry & flat ironing – After the solution has been left in your hair for the appropriate amount of time, we will rinse it out, blow dry your hair and then flat iron your dried hair. This stage of the process creates the permanent straightness.
The neutralizer application & final styling – The neutralizer conditions hair while finalizing the YUKO treatment. After applying and rinsing the neutralizer, we will blow dry and style your hair.
This process typically takes 3 to 4 hours to complete.
