Hair salon in London specialising in hair straightening

There are many people with frizzy hair or kinky hair who need time to style their hair every day or who can’t achieve the hairstyle they want.

We would like to introduce our Japanese straightening techniques to anyone who has such problems.

Damage hair

The client’s hair is naturally very frizzy and wavy from the roots.

If nothing is done to the hair, it spreads very much when it is dried.

On top of that, her hair is very weak due to the repeated use of hair colour.

If you try to straighten damaged hair, there is a risk that the hair will become stringy and break.

That is why in our salon we replenish the hair with good nutrition and then use a chemical with treatment.

Even if your hair is damaged and so stubborn, we can make your hair natural and straight.

kinky, frizzy hair

This is the most common type of hair that spreads out, especially among those with kinky hair or frizzy hair.

The disadvantage of this type of hair is that it has a dry texture and makes the head look very large.

These people tend to spend most of their days with their hair basically tied up.

The ends of her hair were also sore and she had a hard time styling it by herself.

With our hair straightening treatment, the result is soft and natural-looking straight hair.

As you can see, the hair is not unnaturally crisp and hard, and we try to keep the texture as natural as possible.

Can I get a perm at the ends of my hair if I have straightened hair?

Most of our clients with kinky hair or frizzy hair enjoy straightening their hair to some extent, but most of them want to change their hair afterward.

Most of our clients want to change their hair from straight to naturally curly hair.

If you have straightened your hair and want to perm it, you need to ask a skilled hairdresser who are able to judge the hair condition, choose the right chemical, and has a lot of experience.

In our salon, we have worked with many clients with kinky hair and frizzy hair.

After a thorough consultation with the customer, if we judge that we can do it, we will apply a digital perm to the hair after it has been straightened to provide more natural-looking curly hair.

Kinky hair and frizzy hair are prone to damage and breakage.

If you are kinky hair or frizzy hair, you need to choose a hair salon that can straighten your hair well or you risk being failed.

Hair straightening is a very difficult technique, so if you go to a salon that offers cheap & quick hair straightening services, you run the risk of eventually failing.

That’s why, if you are suffering from kinky hair or stubborn frizzy hair, you should definitely ask for help from an experienced hair salon that specializes in hair straightening and hair improvement.

How to create a shiny hair

What is shiny hair?

Glossy hair is a hair texture that has moisture and elasticity on the surface of the hair, as the appearance of angel rings, and is able to maintain a silky texture when touched.

Do you look your age? Or do you look older than you are?

It is very important to have shiny hair because it will make you look younger and it will also affect the way your skin looks.

10 daily hair care tips for shiny hair

To achieve shiny hair, you should be more conscious of the daily hair care routine you follow.

Hair is naturally very strong and well made, able to withstand irritation and friction.

However, everyday damage to the hair can lead to a number of problems, such as split ends, dryness, waviness, and swelling, which can occur over the next year or two.

If you have any of these problems, please make sure that you take care of your hair on a daily basis.

Brushing your scalp for shiny hair

Do you brush your hair every day?

Brushing your hair before and after shampooing is very effective as it reduces tangles and removes dust and dirt from your hair.

If your hair gets tangled during shampooing, it can easily become sore.

Using a brushing comb to stimulate the scalp after a bath will help to improve the flow of capillaries in the scalp and promote hair growth.

Brushing recommendations

Some brushes, such as pig bristle, can be used to add shine and manageability when styling your hair, while others are rougher brushes that can be used before shampooing.

There are also head-spa brushes that can be used to massage the scalp during shampooing, so make sure you have the right brush for your needs.

Whether you have long or short hair, we recommend the square-shaped brushes, which are great for stimulating blood circulation in the scalp and helping to break up tangles.

Shampoo lays the foundation for shiny hair

The shampoo you use every day is an important part of creating shiny hair.

The shampoo is just a cleanser, so if you use a harsh shampoo such as a high alcohol shampoo to remove dirt, it can easily strip the cuticle and dry out the scalp and hair.

We recommend amino acid shampoo and keratin shampoo as good shampoo.

The cleaning power is not that strong, but it is enough to remove daily dirt and the repairing and moisturizing ingredients in amino acid and keratin are very important to make your hair shiny.

So make sure you choose the right shampoo to use every day.

How to use shampoo for shiny hair

When using shampoo, pre-wash your hair with warm water (around 38°C). Massage your scalp with your fingers for at least a minute to remove 70% of the dirt.

Then, pour the shampoo out onto your palms and rub it through your hair to create a lather.

If you use hair conditioners, sprays, oils, or creams, wash your hair twice to get the best lather.

You can make your hair shiny with just a hairdryer

Some people think that not using a hairdryer will not damage their hair, but in fact, leaving your hair wet is more harmful to your hair.

In fact, leaving your hair wet can be more harmful to your hair. Wet hair can cause bacteria to grow on your scalp, which can lead to odors, and wet hair is very sensitive, so friction from clothes and towels can damage your hair and cause it to lose nutrients.

So always use a hairdryer after a bath.

The best condition for your hair is when it has around 10% moisture content.

So when using a hairdryer, dry 90% of your hair and then use the residual heat to dry your hair.

How to use a hairdryer

When using a hairdryer, apply air from the roots to the ends of the hair, from top to bottom, to help condition the surface of the hair and make it shine.

You can also try grabbing the ends of your hair between your fingers and applying a little tension to them to make your hair shine more evenly.

Don’t pull too hard or let the wind blow from one place to another, as this can cause damage.

Hair oil for moisturized and shiny hair

Hair oil helps to keep the nutrients in the hair from leaking out and to retain the moisture in the hair. The oil in hair oil adds shine and moisture to your hair, which is essential if you have dry or damaged hair.

Hair oil can be used on dry hair after a bath or even in the morning after staling to give it a shiny look.

Hair oil creates a thin film on the surface of the hair, which helps to prevent static electricity from forming and also helps to prevent damage caused by friction and air conditioning.

How to use hair oil

Hair oils come in light and heavy types. If you want a more moisturized and shiny finish, try a heavier oil.

We recommend Napla N’s Polish Oil, which is a popular hair oil often used in beauty salons, so go for it!

UV protection for shiny hair

When you are out and about, you may not be aware of the damage that UV rays can do to your hair.

UV rays can irritate your hair even on a cloudy day, so if you are out and about a lot it is a good idea to use a UV care product to minimize the damage to your hair as well as your skin.

UV hair creams can help protect your hair from the sun by being applied before you dry your hair with a hairdryer.

Oil-based products also protect your hair, so choose the one that suits you best.

Friction worsens shine

Friction is the biggest problem in creating shiny hair. Friction can occur

  1. When shampooing
  2. When drying with a towel
  3. When you go out, friction with clothes

is the main cause. To avoid friction, do not shampoo or towel dry your hair too hard.

When you are out and about, clothes, scarves, and coats are also prone to friction and static electricity. Use hair care products to avoid friction damage as much as possible.

Nutrition for shiny hair through diet

A balanced diet is essential for shiny hair and for healthy hair. It is the hardest place for nutrients to reach the hair because it is only after all the necessary nutrients have been delivered to the body.

Even if you are taking care of your hair to make it shiny, if the new hair is thin and lacking in elasticity, it will not be able to grow back. Therefore, it is important to ensure that your daily diet contains the essential nutrients needed for hair growth.

Essential nutrients for shiny hair

The most important nutrients for hair growth are protein, zinc and vitamin C, and biotin.

Sleep is essential for shiny hair

Getting a good night’s sleep every day is very important for healthy hair.

If you don’t get enough sleep, it can affect the growth of your hair, making it more prone to falling apart and leading to hair loss and thinning.

The golden hour, from 10 pm to 2 am, is the time when cell division is activated inside the body, so it is a good idea to try to sleep during this time, which not only affects your hair but also your skin.

Even if this is difficult, it is said that the human body needs about 7 hours of sleep every day, so if you are sleep deprived, be aware of this.

Stress can affect your hair shine

Stress from work and relationships can also have a negative effect on your hair. Stress can lead to a disturbance of the autonomic nervous system, hair loss and thinning of the hair, and can even lead to sudden illnesses such as alopecia areata.

Excessive stress can, of course, affect the growth of hair, making it easier to grow thin and thinning hair, and in some cases disrupting the hair cycle and speeding up the pace of hair loss.

Stress is an unavoidable part of life, but it is very important to deal with it and not hold it in.

It’s good to be able to control your stress by refreshing yourself, letting it go, and thinking about other things.

Keep your hair shiny with the right ironing technique

There are so many people who use hair irons. This hair iron is the enemy of shiny hair, due to friction and heat irritation.

It is better for your hair not to use them, but there are many people who really want to use them.

For those who do, make sure you use the right temperature and hair care products when using it.

The higher the temperature used with the iron, the easier and quicker it is to style, but the more damage it can do to your hair.

When using an iron at home, try to keep the temperature at around 140°C and use a hair care product such as heat protection before use to protect your hair from the heat.

Shiny hair is also good for men

Although it is thought that only women are aware of the importance of shiny hair, nowadays there are many men who want to have shiny hair.

Men are now taking care of their skin and hair, and they are also becoming more conscious of the shine of their hair.

It’s easy for men to feel clean and shiny when their hair is shiny.

If you think that men’s hair has nothing to do with shine, you will be surprised to know that more and more men will have damaged and dry hair.

Advantages and disadvantages of shiny hair

I would like to explain a little about the advantages and disadvantages of shiny hair.

For those who want to achieve shiny hair in the future, this can be a great motivation to work hard.

Advantages of shiny hair

  1. Easier to style
  2. Makes a good first impression
  3. You will look younger
  4. You will receive compliments from others
  5. Having shiny hair not only makes you look younger
  6. it also makes styling your hair easier.

You will also receive compliments from your friends and family.

“Can I touch your hair?”

“You look so beautiful in the back”.

It’s a great feeling to know that you’ve done your best!

Disadvantages of shiny hair

  1. Increased sensitivity to damage

There are almost no disadvantages to having shiny hair!

This is because there are more advantages to having shiny hair than lacking shine.

However, if you’ve put a lot of effort into getting shiny hair, it can make you a little more sensitive to damage.

Just as some people wear long sleeves or cloth around their face when out and about in the summer to protect their skin from UV rays, it is important not to be too sensitive to the stress that can be caused by restricting your hair to avoid damage.

An important treatment for shiny hair

Treatment is important for shiny hair.

Products such as hair masks, which are generally used by everyone, basically have the effect of coating the hair.

So, when you use them at home, you can use the mask after shampooing to protect your hair and improve its texture.

In addition to this, there are salon treatments that are offered in beauty salons that repair the inside of the hair.

Some salon treatments are simply a coating effect, while others are a service that improves the quality of the hair by repairing the damaged areas with keratin.

Once the hair has grown back, it is a dead cell and will not get better if nothing is done.

Especially if your hair is already damaged by colouring, perming, or straightening, you may want to consider using salon treatments.

There’s now a wealth of services out there that can make even damaged hair shine, like hairdressing, so it’s worth taking advantage!

How to style your hair for shine Reverse care

Have you ever heard of Reverse Care?

It is styling care that can make your hair shiny by adding a twist to your daily hair care routine.

Here’s how to do it

  1. Brush your hair carefully
  2. Apply a non-drying hair oil (Argan oil, Jojoba oil)
  3. Comb hair and leave for 10 minutes
  4. Apply the hair mask to mid-lengths and ends
  5. Comb and leave for 10 minutes.
  6. Shampoo and treat as normal.
  7. Apply non-drying oil and leave to dry.

Reverse care is recommended once or twice a week. It is also important to note that if you overdo it, it can easily become sticky and heavy.

This reverse care is highly recommended because it will help to create shiny hair while minimizing friction and heat irritation from ironing and styling!

How to create a shiny hair

Many people may want to have shiny hair but find it hard to do a lot of hair care every day.

For those people, we recommend a hair improvement treatment.

Hair improvement can make your hair shiny, natural, and straight without damaging it.

It is recommended for busy women, people with children, and students who are busy with their studies.

At Baroque Tokyo, the menu for shiny hair includes

  • hair smoothing
  • Weak acid hair straightening

is available.

We recommend the Science Aqua for those who want to have silky and shiny hair easily, and the Weak Acid Hair Straightening for those who have a habit but do not want to damage their hair.

You’ll need all sorts of hair care to make your hair shiny, but with services like these offered at the salon, you can make your hair shiny in the shortest possible time, so come and experience it for yourself!
