Re-texturizing means changing the original texture of your hair. That can be done through chemical, ingredients that temporarily change your texture or through heat. Below are details of the various Permanent Chemical services provided as well as Temporary. There is a solution to your hair crisis! These products can be use to remove frizz, reduce bulk or completely straighten hair. There are so many options!
Japanese Straightening or Thermal Reconditioning
A permanent chemical process that makes curly, wavy hair straight. It is done using a chemical called Ammonia Thioglycolate. This chemical has been used for decades and is better known as the ingredient found in curly perms. Introduced by the Japanese in the 80's, it is now used to restructure the hair and permanently lay the cuticle down for a silky straight look. The average service takes anywhere between 4-6 hours. It can be done on ALL textures of hair. The average client receives retouches every 6 months. Color and Highlighting is possible but only with extensive instructions and adhering to a treatment plan.
This is another technique, using the same Ammonia Thio-based chemical to drastically loosen your curls/waves and reduce frizz by up to 75%. The difference between this service and the Japanese Straightening is that the process time is shorter and there's is little to no use of heat. This will leave your hair more manageable, leaving more volume and styling much easier!
GK "The Best"
Made with their key ingredient, Juvexin, this is a 100% Formadehyde-Free (nor derivatives of) system that restores hair from the inside out. "Juvexin is nonhydrolyzed, contains intact keratin and consists of both large and small molecules. The smaller Juvexin molecules penetrate the cortex, improving and restoring hair from the inside out while the larger molecules wrap around the cuticle layer of the hair, creating a protective shield against free radicals such as UV Rays and pollution."
The GKhair Hair Taming System with Juvexin is beneficial to all hair types. This is a temporary system that breaks down in about 2-3 months. Using Sulfate-free products increases it's durability.
* The above services are labor intense and detail-oriented. I do not double book during these services so that I can make sure you have the best results. The process for the above services can take anywhere from 3-6 hours, depending on length, thickness and presence of other chemicals. Because a large amount of time is scheduled to perform these services, a deposit of $100 is mandatory to hold the time. The deposit will be deducted from your balance at the day of your appointment. If your appointment needs to rescheduled or cancelled, please give me a 72 hr window prior to your scheduled appointment. This allows me the ability to fill that time. Any appointments rescheduled/cancelled after the 72 hr window, forfeits their deposit and the entire process has to be repeated. *
