Permanent Hair Straightening Newcastle

This is by far the latest and most advanced approach of permanent hair straightening.

The Permanent Hair Straightening treatment will leave your hair looking as if it has just been freshly blow-dried and ironed straight.

You will no longer need to spend the mornings fighting your curls and kinks.

For most people, achieving a sleek, straight look takes a lot of styling every morning, which means a lot of product and heat. The results might seem good but putting your hair through this on a daily basis causes damage and does not give the hair time to recover.

As well as the damage we’re doing, it’s also a very impractical and time-consuming way of getting the look we want. Straightening properly takes at least half an hour.

Perhaps the main frustration with trying to tame your hair though is when you get the results you want but then have all your hard work undone by bad weather or high humidity. It impossible to control without carrying hair straighteners around all day long!

If you're looking for a way to achieve silky soft, straight hair, without the daily struggle of hair straighteners then book an appointment for a permanent hair straightening consultation. Results really do last. To book a free consultation please phone us on 0191 2619651. If you book your consultation online please book with stylist Greg, Dalton or Aki who are experienced in this treatment. During the consultation they will answer any questions or concerns that you have.

Please note: This treatment cannot be done on hair that has been bleached, has high lift tint, bleach highlights, relaxed, permed, damage, is Afro-Caribbean or if you've had an allergic reaction to a perm lotion. If you have had a Brazilian Blow-dry, please wait 4 months until the coating is completely out of the hair.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does the permanent hair straightening treatment work?
With permanent straightening, the hair is treated with a solution which softens the hair. The hair is then washed, and blow dried. Next, it will be flat-ironed in very small sections. The Permanent Straightening treatment first loosens the hair bonds and reshapes the hair bonds by using straighteners and a neutralizer which permanently straightens the hair. The procedure takes approximately 4.5 hours depending on the thickness, length, and the condition of the hair. The result is permanent on the hair that is straightened.

Why should I have Permanent Hair Straightening?
With this treatment, your hair will be frizz-free and it will cut the drying time in half as you will no longer need to pull the curl out.

Can you colour or highlight hair after Japanese permanent straightening?
If the hair is going to be coloured, it should be done at least two weeks before or two weeks after the straightening treatment. Please note that we are unable to offer permanent straightening to clients who have had an all-over bleach application, high-lift tint, bleach highlights or perm. It is also not suitable for hair that has been relaxed or is damaged.
Finally please bare in mind that if you have previously coloured your hair, this treatment can sometimes make the colour fade.

Is Japanese permanent straightening suitable for all hair types?
Whether or not we can proceed to permanently straighten your hair will depend on the hair's condition. For this reason, it is important that we examine your hair to establish if it is suitable for permanent straightening. During the examination, we take a very small cutting of hair. This hair will be saturated with the Yuko straightening solution. After a few minutes, we will apply tension to the hair by pulling on it. If the hair has a sufficient amount of resistance, then it will be safe to go ahead with the permanent straightening treatment. If not, we would advise that it's not safe to proceed.

Can Afro hair be straightened with the Yuko permanent hair straightening treatment?
True Afro hair e.g. where the curl size is pencil size or smaller cannot be straighted with our straightening treatment. If you have afro hair, you may like to get advice from a salon which offers a relaxing service instead.

Does Japanese permanent hair straightening damage hair?
Chemical straightening can be damaging if the straightening solution is applied directly on to the scalp. We apply the solution at least one inch away from the scalp to keep the root area healthy.
Older types of straightening products required that the hair be repeatedly combed once the solution is applied to pull the curl out. This constant pulling can be damaging when the hair is in a sensitive state. Fortunately, the Yuko straightening product which we use does not require the hair to be repeatedly combed.
Finally, hair damage can be caused if the solution is reapplied to the entire length or previously permanently straightened hair. With the Yuko treatment, we overlap any previously permanently straightened hair by 1 inch only.
In the long run, permanent straightening may be beneficial to your hair’s condition. Once the hair is straightened, it will be more easy to style. You will not need to spend as much time with a dryer, brush and hot hair straighteners to pull the curl out. In addition to saving time, the Yuko hair treatment will help you to avoid causing long term heat damage to your hair.
Correct application by our trained and experienced stylists at Nicholas Mark Hairdressing will give you the results you desire.

How long does permanent hair straightening last?
The hair that has been permanently straightened will remain straight permanently. However, newly grown hair will again be naturally curly.

How often will I need to redo the Hair Straightening?
You can come in to have it done again when your new growth is 10 cm long which is approximately after 6 months. Hair straightening will be done to the newly grown hair only.

How long does Permanent hair straightening take?
It usually takes approximately 4.5 hours.

Will I still have frizz after Hair Straightening?
No, because the hair will no longer bend outward. Instead, all hairs will lay parallel to each other.

Will I still have to straighten out my hair with a blow-drier and hairbrush?
Once the hair is straightened, it will be more easy to style. You will not need to spend as much time with a dryer, brush and hair straighteners to pull the curl out. The amount of time required to style your hair will decrease as the hair will no longer be curly. After a few months, you may find it necessary to spend more time to straighten the new hair growth.

How long will it take me to style my Straightened Hair?
Most people with curly hair spend around 30 min styling their hair. After the Hair Straightening Treatment, most clients will need just 10 min or less. This time may increase slightly as your new Hair grows back, but should never take as long as it used to before your hair was straightened.

How long should you wait to wash your hair after permanent straightening?
Please do not shampoo or get the hair wet for 48 hours. If the hair accidentally gets wet in that time, blow-dry and iron the hair immediately.

Will I still need to use electric Hair Straighteners?
Some people still like to use straighteners to smooth out the hair but normally you will no longer need straighteners to achieve the Straight Hair.

Can I have my hair permanently straightened if I am pregnant?
Yes, the treatment is completely safe to have during pregnancy in terms of chemicals. However please note that this is a long procedure which takes around 4.5 hours and some people may find the product's strong smell unpleasant.

Is there anything I should not do with my hair after it's permanently straightened?
For a full 48 hours after you've had your hair permanently straightened you must not put pressure on the hair e.g. by using elastic bands, clips, hats, tie your hair back, putting the hair behind your ears or wear a ponytail. You should not wash your hair for the first 48 hours after the straightening. You should not colour your hair for at least 14 days after having the straightening done. You are encouraged to gently smooth your Hair after sleeping. To avoid splashing the hairline with water. It's recommended that you use face wipes instead of washing your face with water. You can also keep your hair dry by wrapping it in a towel when having a bath or shower. You must keep your hair as straight as possible for 1 week but after that, if you like you can still make your hair curly e.g. by using rollers or a curling iron but you must not perm the hair.

Will my hair be flat after the Hair Straightening treatment?
For the first few weeks, your newly Straightened Hair may be a little bit flat but just after a few weeks of new hair growth, you will enjoy some volume while maintaining smooth, sleek ends.

What else is Permanent Hair Straightening also knows as?
Permanent Hair Straightening is also known as Yuko Straightening System, Yuko Hair Straightening, Yuko System, Japanese Straightening, Thermal Reconditioning, Chemical Straightening, Shiseido Crystallizing, Permanent Straightening, Ionic Straightening, Bio Ionic Hair Retexturising, Thermal Restructuring, Rebonding, Thermal Reconstruction, Liscio Permanent Hair Straightening, Liscio Hair Straightening, Permanent Straightening, CHI Straightening System, or Permanent Style Hair Straitening.

Will I still be able to curl my hair after the treatment?
Your newly Straightened Hair will still respond to the use of heat and tools such as curling irons and round brushes. Therefore, you may achieve a curly or wavy style on occasion if you would like to. However, you must wait 1 week after you have the treatment before you can curl your hair.

I have very curly hair but don't want to completely straighten my hair, can I just get rid of the freeze without totally losing my curls?
Yes, if you do not want the hair to be completely straight, you can have a Brazilian Blowdry. The Brazilian Blowdry treatment will soften the curl and eliminate the frizz.

I had an allergic reaction the last time I had a perm. Will it be safe to have the Permanent Hair Straightening treatment?
Perm lotions and Permanent Hair Straightening treatments both contain very similar ingredients which means there would be a very high risk of you having another allergic reaction to this treatment and so we would not be able to do this service for you.

What is the difference between permanent hair straightening and the Brazilian keratin treatment?
The Permanent Straightening treatment defrizzes and straightens the hair by changing the hair's internal structure and makes the change permanent. The first stage of the treatment detaches the hair's bonds and final stage reattaches them in the new straight shape. The Brazilian blowdry treatment instead is semi-permanent, washes out of the hair with time and can last up to 4 months.
The Brazilian keratin treatment does not completely straighten the hair like the Japanese treatment. With the Brazilian treatment, the hair can be left to dry naturally curly or wavy. The Brazilian blow-dry adds keratin to the hair and softens whatever curl or wave you have. If the hair is air-dried without a blow dryer, it will still have a wave or curl but no frizz. With the Brazilian blow-dry, you can still blow dry your hair straight but you will be able to do it in a fraction of the time it would normally take you. More information please see: Brazilian Blowdry FAQs

Which Permanent Hair Straightening treatment do you use?
There are several Permanent Hair Straightening treatments e.g. Yuko, Matrix, CHI, Senscience, Curecell, Momoko and Shiseido.
We have chosen to use Yuko because it achieves permanently straight hair every time.
