Junko Hair Studio has been performing Thermal Reconditioning since 1999, when Liscio invented it in Japan. It is a conditioning treatment and is also known as Thermal Straightening. The process, which takes a while, loosens the hair's cysteine protein bonds, and restructures them by straightening the hair by using a heated flat iron and Liscio products. the hair is then sealed and made permanently straightened with use of a neutralizing agent to lower the pH balance and closes off the cuticle. This causes the hair to have a smoother surface as a whole. We have Asian staff members who are highly experienced with Thermal Reconditioning and follow a technically guide-lined procedure enhanced by years of experience. Our policy is always to have a consultation with each customer prior to their service and to determine if their hair is suitable for the service. If an in house consultation is extremely inconvenient, a few strands of hair mailed to us for analyzing is required. We only perform the service if the hair is healthy. It is more effective and recommended by Liscio to use a pure protein conditioner up to two weeks prior in addition to the same day of the service if necessary.
