Yuko Japanese Hair Straightening

“I have have had my hair straightened with the Chi...”

Written on: 20/09/2007 by jille101 (1 review written)

I have have had my hair straightened with the Chi Japanese Hair Straightening system 5 times (every 6 months). After the first treatment I thought it was a miracle. I have always thought of my hair as punishment for something bad I did in my last life: It is a constant aggravation every single day; kinky, frizzy and extremely unattractive hair. It could look good curly with tons of product and about an hour to mould every strand, or blow dry for 40 minutes and one drop of humidity and poof - I'm right back where I started. So I thought I had died and gone to heaven with this treatment.



Well, the moral of the story is that if it seems too good to be true, it is. My hair has deteriorated with each treatment, until it is absolutely destroyed. Now I wish for my old nasty kinky hair; at least if felt and looked like hair. I have read that this is partially due to human error, as reapplying the solution without getting treated hair is difficult. I don't know who is to blame, but repeated treatments can be deadly to your hair! I would love to hear from others who have had repeated straightening treatments.

I have had my hair chemically straightened 5 times now (every 5-6 mo.) With the Chi thermal hair straightening system and it looks and feels better than it ever has. Hair that was once frizzy, big and horrid is now smooth, straight and soft. Even a day in the rain doesn't ruin it!! I have more time for other things besides flattening out my locks. It is the greatest invention ever for me. I also have it coloured and highlighted and it's just fine. P. Landick, Canada

For the past year since my Japanese -ionic straightening, I've seen my thick brown hair disappear to thin, whispy lifeless damaged hair. It keeps breaking at all different points along the hair shaft. I'm assuming it is a result of the straightening process. It seems as though there may be some people who have had trouble growing and maintaining the strength of their hair after a bad straightening expereience? Is that right? I live in Florida and was tired of frizzy, fuzzy hair and thought this was the solution. Was I ever wrong. My hair has been in such horrible shape ever since. Can anyone tell me how long it took to get your healthy hair back? Do you know if the hair follicles will be permanently damaged? Help!

Hello, I have had six treatments Marcia Teixeira Brazilian Kerarin Treatment (B.K.T.) and before I started having the treatments my hair was really damaged from perming, coloring and the sun. But since I've had the treatments my hair is actually healthy again. So tomorrow I'm going to a salon closer to home who uses the CHI Hair straightening and hoping for the same results.

Thanks for the advice, I know about breakage - we learned early on about that since I experienced it! When you go against the natural way the hair lays or something it will break so we're past that. The only problem is there's not many people who can do this in the burbs where I live. I know alot is human error and I'm going to discuss with my stylist next month (just for cut and color) and discuss what I'm feeling and if the color, etc doesn't get better, I will have to change it's just hard to find someone new - you know? Thanks again I'll see how it goes.

I have had my hair straightened probably eight times. I used to have the problems you had, My old stylist messed up my hair color right after a straightening and had to do it twice, and destroyed my hair. It was horribly, horribly, over processed and it took a year to get it back to something resembling hair. The happy end to the story is that I did a lot of reading on line about the straightening treatment, and changed stylists. My hair now (two treatments since it got fried) is fine. It is dry on the ends, and needs to be cut every six weeks, and needs a deep conditioning once a month or so, but I can live with that. The problems I had before: breakage near the scalp, damage were human error. It is very easy to screw up this treatment when you reapply it, I found out from reading on the internet. If you get it too close to the roots, the hair can break. But bottom line, a lot of the the issues with the Chi are human error, and my suggestion to you would be: keep getting it cut until it is healthy again and change to a new stylist. Let me know how it goes.

I've had my hair straigntened with the Chi method 4-5 times since 2005. The reason I'm looking into this is that I feel the exact same way - Love the straight hair no frizzies but over time NOW - I think my hair is more damaged than ever before! I don't know what do do really, growing it out is almost inhumane but I'm afraid my hair will never stop splitting and looking damaged. I apply proteins and softeners you can't buy over the counter (you have to have a cosmetology license) and use twice a week. It feels and looks better when it's fresh but like the next day - it's back to looking damaged again. From a distance, I think it looks great but I'm very self concious that others can see all my damage close up. Don't know what to do at this point. I also get my hair colored and I think it doesn't hold the color very well anymore since I've had it straightened.
