Permanent Straightening

You may decide to have a permanent hair straightening service if you want to eliminate curl or frizz. Permanent hair straightening takes the bonds of overly curly or wavy hair and restructures them to become straight.

Professional Hair Straightening

Permanent hair straightening is a lengthy procedure that requires a thorough technical knowledge of the process. It should always be performed by a hair care professional with a track record of success with straightening. If a stylist is not properly trained, the process can significantly damage your hair.

Your stylist must evaluate your hair texture, porosity, elasticity, and the presence or absence of any hair damage. For example:

  • Fine, chemically lightened hair or hair with color generally requires a very mild straightening formula.
  • Normal, medium and/ or textured virgin hair can tolerate the regular strength straightening formula.
  • Coarse or virgin hair may require a stronger formula.

A professionally trained stylist will be able to determine the best type of straightening formula based on the results of a strand test and by looking at and touching the hair to be treated.

Permanent Straightening at Barron’s London Salon

We use the CHI Transformation System for all permanent hair straightening services. This thermal reconditioning treatment is similar to “Japanese Straightening,” but still allows you achieve lift and volume.

With the CHI Transformation System, silk and protein bonds penetrate into the negative areas within the hair to build strength and resilience. Pure, natural, organic silk is used in the CHI products. The silk adds shine and protection against heat, cold, humidity, and free radicals, which can damage your hair. The result is smooth, sleek and shiny hair.

The CHI Transformation System is a permanent process. This means that the hair you straighten will remain straight forever, with new growth from your roots requiring touch-ups occasionally.

If you are looking to make your wavy, unruly, frizzy hair straight, this is the best system we’ve tried. We have performed many CHI straighteners, and have several stylists certified on the system, with owner David Barron certified as a trainer on the CHI Transformation Straightening System.

Alternative to Permanent Hair Straightening

If you are undecided about going straight or keeping your waves, but you need to tame the frizz, a keratin treatment may be the best option for you.
