Yuko Japanese Hair Straightening FAQs:
Are you frustrated with your stubborn natural curls or frizzy dry hair?
Unlike the conventional hair-straightening perm, 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.
What kind of hair can be straightened?
“Virgin” hair and hair that has been colored by a stylist.
Is Yuko Straightening System process truly permanent?
Yes. The Yuko System is permanent on the hair that is treated. However, your new hair will grow in with its natural texture, therefore it will be necessary to straighten the new growth.
How long does the straightening process take?
The entire process takes 4 to 5 hours (The length and density of the hair can result in a longer process).
When retouched for new growth, no steps are skipped. Although there is less hair to retouch, the process still will take 3 to 4 hours.
Can highlighted hair be permanently straightened with the Yuko System?
Yes it can be straightened. Highlighted hair is considered to be damaged hair, regardless of its appearance or strength so it does require specialized skill. Yuko has a formula to straighten highlighted hair, and I am experienced in working with highlighted and processed hair.
Can colored hair be permanently straightened with the Yuko System?
Yes. Tinted or colored hair is the ideal condition for the Yuko System. There are two different formulas I work with but they strongly depend on how healthy or chemically dependent your hair is.
How often do I need to redo the straightening?
The average time between hair straightening services is 6 months but it depends on your hair type. The speed at which your hair grows and your ability to work with the new growth will ultimately determine the length of time for you. Hair straightening retouches are done to new growth only.
How much does the Yuko System cost?
It depends on the length and density of your hair. A consultation is highly recommended so I can see the condition of your hair and quote a price based off the work that will need to be done. Yuko can start at $350 but the pricing can vary based on the two factors mentioned before.
