How to tell if you have damaged hair? Take the test.


Healthy Hair Test:
- Run your fingers through your hair. Do you feel roughness or unevenness?
- Check your hair strands. Are any of them bent?
- Slightly pull on your hair. Does it feel elastic like a hair band? Does is break?

If you answered yes to any of the above, your hair is screaming for attention.

When you feel roughness or unevenness through your hair, it means that your cuticles are coming out on the surface. Bent strands mean you don't have enough moisture in your hair. And if your strands are breaking or too elastic, that means your hair's becoming weaker.

What causes hair damage?

- Perm, color and even sweat
- UV rays
- Hair straighteners, curling irons and blow-dryers
- Too much friction caused by shampooing and brushing your hair

All of these factors make your hair cuticles to fall out, causing all the nutritious substance to fall out as well.

How to treat your damaged hair

The first step in treatment starts from reconditioning the inside of your hair.
Use hair treatment to replenish the lost nutrition. Bring your hair pH level back to normal by using amino acid shampoos. Also, make sure you use a towel to absorb most of the moisture from your hair before using a hair dryer and apply a leave-in treatment to protect your hair from blow-drying heat.

There you have it! You're on your way to shiny healthy hair!

What’s the difference? Straight Perm vs. Japanese Straight Perm




Both straighten your hair, but there’s a big difference in the process and who it’s intended for. Let’s look into it.

Straight Perm:
A straight perm is a straightening method that involves a 2-round application. For the first round, we apply a solution that breaks the protein bonds that give your hair its shape. In the second round, another solution is used to hold the straightened strands in place. The straight perm is good for people who have permed hair and want to bring it back to their natural straight hair. It’s not for people who want to fix naturally frizzy, coarse or wavy hair.

Japanese Straight Perm:
The Japanese Straight Perm is a procedure that originated in Japan in the 1990’s. Now it’s a popular menu in salons around the world for transforming unruly hair into pin-straight hair. It’s a bit more expensive than the regular straight perm because once you get it, it’s pretty much permanent. (Except for the newly grown strands)

The procedure involves applying solution which breaks protein bonds that give your hair its shape. What’s different compared to the straight perm is that we use a special flat iron in between the first and second round of application. The added heat complements the work of the solution and thermally reconditions your hair to stay straight.

It’s ideal for people who have minimal hair damage and want a long-term straightening solution for their naturally unruly hair. Besides getting the sleek frizz-free look, you’ll also save so much time fighting your hair in the morning.

Regardless of which type of straightening method you choose, it’s without a doubt that both will be adding damage to your hair. That’s why you need to be using the proper hair treatment after you get any kind of perm. And make sure you’re thoroughly blow-drying your hair when you’re out of the shower, because you don’t want to welcome hair damage by leave those cuticles open.
