Japanese Hair Straightening Review

The introduction of Japanese hair straightening met a warm welcome from people of the western world and very soon it gained extreme popularity and recognition. It is nothing but a chemical process that can turn your curly hair absolutely straight. It is also known as Bio Ionic Straightening, Thermal Reconditioning and the Yuko System. Irrespective of the different terms used to address it, it is a permanent straightening technique in which heat is used to restructure the bonds of the hairs such that each strand of the hair lies straight resulting in smooth, glossy hair that radiates color, reflects light and bears an attractive silky finish.

This method can be applied on all hair types with an exception to African people and extremely brittle hair because these types of hairs fail to withstand the intense heat process. The tighter the curls, the less dramatic and effective results can be seen. However, in all the cases the hair becomes much more manageable and controllable.

Japanese hair straightening takes six hours or longer and comes with an expensive price tag and can range anywhere from $300 to $800 depending on the length and texture of the hair. One needs to make a trip to the salon every six months in order to get root touch ups so that the new hair does not grow kinky. The user needs to follow a strict 72 hour initial aftercare process in order to fully enjoy and benefit long lasting results. The aftercare process comprises of simple guidelines like avoidance of water and moisture, and users are not allowed to tie the hair too tight and wash hair for the first 15 days. As a word of caution, the hair will only stay till straight till hair grows out.

Brazilian Blowout

Tired of seeing dull and brittle hair? Want to know an easy way to have fabulous hair? Try a Brazilian blowout, which is a treatment undertaken at beauty salons to straighten hair. The treatment makes hair look healthy and bounce with shine. If you think that Brazilian blowout is the same as Japanese straightening, you are mistaken. Read on to know more about this treatment.

The best thing about this treatment is that harsh chemicals, such as formaldehyde and other known carcinogens are not put to use. The treatment not only improves the quality of your locks but also provides nourishment to your most prized possession, that is, your hair. All you need to do is to visit a good hair salon in your proximity and get a Brazilian blowout treatment done.

On your visit, your hair will first be shampooed and covered with Brazilian blowout solutions. After drying, hair will be straightened using a flat iron, helping the solution get sealed into the shafts. After the process is complete, the hair will be washed, conditioned and blow dried.

According to a Jacksonville Hair Salon expert, beauty salons take around 1.5- 2 hours to complete the entire Brazilian blowout treatment. If your hair is long, it may take more time. The hair condition improves as the super-nutrient complex and polymer system protect and give a shinier appearance. The hair cuticles and shafts are smoothened by the action of this nutrient system.

Having smooth and shiny locks will not just be a dream now. Anyone can now visit the nearest beauty salon and get the treatment done. Once treated, the hair becomes more manageable and does not need restyling and redoing often. Working out, swimming and exercising can never make your hair look bad. A simple blow-dry at home or beauty salon can make your mane look perfect all over again and that too without much effort. Brazilian blowouts last for a period of about three months. So, look around for hair salons that offer this treatment and pay them a visit right away to choose the one offering the best service.

The Benefits Of Professional Hair Care

Knotty Hair Salon,Suisun,CaliforniaWhen it comes to hair - especially for women - anything goes in an effort to make us feel beautiful. And often this effort means the pursuit of professional hair care - that service that will keep our hair healthy and looking great. Of course, such service comes at a price - some higher than others - but most find that it is more than worth the expense. Can you cut your hair at home? Yes. Can you color your hair with the use of a product you picked up at your local drugstore? Absolutely. But what you save in avoiding professional hair care you will almost certainly wind up spending down the road to fix damage you have caused.

Professional services are simply part of our lifestyle - a necessary factor in keeping our bodies healthy. Just as we visit doctors for check-ups, dentists for professional cleaning, and ophthalmologists to make sure our glasses or contacts are up-to-date, so must we allow ourselves professional hair care to ensure the health of our hair.

Professional hair care typically requires a trip to a salon where your hair will be washed, conditioned, cut, and styled. Your stylist can assess the health of your hair and determine if you need a deep conditioning treatment and what cut will work best with your particular hair. Developing a long term relationship with a stylist allows you to know what you're getting when you walk in; it also allows the stylist to get to know your hair and subsequently learn what to look for in determining the health of your hair. Trimming the hair allows the hair to grow and keeps it healthy. If you do not trim your hair, the ends become split and your hair becomes dry, broken, and brittle.

When it comes to styling, professional hair care treatment gives you insight into what looks best for your hair and around your face. It is important to seek out a stylist who has experience working with your type of hair; if, for instance, you have naturally curly hair, you want to find someone who is skilled in dealing with your type of hair. A haircut for curly hair is very different than a haircut for straight hair. A little bit of research will go a long way towards ultimately getting what you want.

For those who color their hair, professional hair care is even more important. If done incorrectly, color can damage your hair long term. A professional hair colorist can expertly treat your hair and help you decide what color looks best on your hair and against your face.

Professional hair care may cost you some money; but it will be well worth it in maintaining the health and beauty of your hair.

A Bit Of History At The Knotty Hair Salon

A Bit of History...

Prior to the stock market crash of 1929, business in Suisun was booming.

Local historian Jerry Bowen cites a 1925 edition of the River News, which noted that Suisun City's prosperity at the time was evident by the success of its banks. Specifically, the Bank of Suisun, which in 1925 had more than 10 times its original capital stock of $100,000 in its vault.

Founded by R.D. Robbins on February 7, 1876, the Bank of Suisun was the town's first bank and Robbins oversaw its growth as president until his death in 1919. The bank's first location was 607 Main Street.

By 1927, the bank was ready for a new home. It found it, a few doors down on the corner of Main and Sacramento Streets.

According to The Heritage Collection, a historical book on Fairfield-Suisun sites and structures, the building was built on the site of the Rummelsburg Dry Goods Store. Typifying the Mediterranean style of the 1920s and 1930s, it was designed with high-arched windows, a low-pitched tile roof, stucco surface walls, and a rectangular floor plan.

Today, some 85 years later, these same architectural features can still be found at 601 Main Street. Paint may have given the exterior a brand new look, but the basic design of the historic 1927 building remains perfectly preserved as Old Town glamour. Fittingly so, since these days Knotty Hair Salon is what buzzes with commerce there.

New owners Justin and Emily Giangrasso set up shop at the corner of Main and Sacramento in 2009, converting the building into a modern beauty salon with vintage touches. Customers can take a step back in time with a visit. The lather room, for example, is built inside the Bank of Suisun's old vault - complete with the original bank doors.
