Tim Walsh Salon's step by step Japanese Thermal Straightening / Reconditioning guide aka Japanese Straight Perm

Product: Quantum Thermal Reconditioning (Color treated)
Time: 3.5 hours
Hair Description: Hair is partially highlighted using 2 colors -
{ level 9 color & 40 volume / level 8 & 20 volume } with 80 - 90% coverage in the highlighted portion.

1. Highlighted on top/ Natural color underneath

2. After applying the porosity equalizer to the highlighted area, section the hair into quarters and begin applying the straightening solution.

3. Apply it on the chemically untreated hair first. Apply the solution 1/2 inch to 3/4 of an inch from the scalp. (***note)

4. Apply the straightening solution to the sides. I protected Lisa's ears with foil.

5. Test it to see if the hair trys to unwind. The product recommends leaving the solution on no more than 15 minutes. (*note)

6. Rinse (don't shampoo) the hair out, dry it taking out 80-95% of the moisture and then begin straightening it with a ceramic hot iron set to high.

7. Take 1/8 - 3/8th inch sections. This is the most time consuming part of the process.

8. Then straighten the sides

9. Once it is completely straightened apply the neutralizer by taking 3/4 inch sections. (**Note)

10. Process for 15 minutes and then rinse completely and apply leave-in conditioner. ( no shampooing)

11. Thermally reconditioned hair dryed using my hands and using no products.

12. Easy to comb-out, straight and silky.

*** Note Do not apply directly to the scalp as this will cause the hair to process at a right angle wich will lead to breakage.
