This is not about doing your hair. This is about transforming your life.

Japanese Hair Straightening
(Thermal Reconditioning)

Japanese Hair Straightening or Thermal Reconditioning is a method of permanently straightening and defrizzing hair types that include: overly curly, wavy, frizzy, kinky, colored, highlighted and bleached hair.

The process simultaneously straightens and repairs hair by realigning the cystine bonds, and improves the hair structure by sealing in the highest quality proteins/emollients through the heat and compression of a flat ironing process.

Lisco & Yuko

The leading producers of Japanese Hair Straightening or Thermal Reconditioning systems include Liscio and Yuko systems.

I have been educated in both systems, as of June 2017 I have successfully completed over 2800 hair straightening procedures and 2,300 Brazilian Blowout procedures in the greater Portland, Oregon area. The quality and results of both systems never cease to amaze me. Japanese Hair Straightening or Thermal Reconditioning literally transforms the lives of clients.

The Liscio system, which I use the most, was introduced, manufactured and received approval by the Japanese government in 1996, for its unique thermal reconditioning formula. In 1998, it was patented in the United States and since then, has developed the reputation of being the leading Japanese Hair Straightening or Thermal Reconditioning system.

In contrast, Yuko system was developed in Japan and patented in the United States in 1997. I find the Yuko system more effective on coarse, defiant hair.


Brazilian Keratin Treatment (BKT)

Categorized as a temporary smoothing treatment and conditioning treatment, was originally developed in Brazil during the 1990's. Since then, the process has reached perfection with the Brazilian Blowout (BBO) formulation that has sent Hollywood spinning.

The Brazilian Blowout version of Brazilian Keratin Treatment is universal, suitable for all types of chemically treated hair, including: bleached, highlighted, colored, relaxed, permed and previously straightened hair. The BBO calms, revitalizes and resurrects curly, frizzy, damaged, dull, lifeless and mistreated hair.

Unlike competing Brazilian Keratin Treatments, Brazilian Blowout has become the industry's leader and smoothing treatment of choice.

Why? Because:

  • Brazilian Blowout formulation enables clients to shampoo the following day verses 3 - 4 days after the treatment as do competing systems.
  • Brazilian Blowout leaves the hair silkier, glossier and lighter weight than competing brands.


A straightening/smoothing treatment is designed to straighten regrowth and virgin hair on classic Afro American hair types (AF) and to smooth pre-existing relaxed hair with a Brazilian Keratin Treatment.


The latest craze in hair straightening beauty is a brilliant marrying between the Japanese Hair Straightening and Brazilian Blowout smoothing treatments.
