QWhat is YUKO SYSTEM?
YUKO SYSTEM “repair” the unique hair-straightening system, was created in Japan as a means to straighten naturally or artificially curly hair without damaging it. Previous methods straightened hair with good results, but it was inevitable – and accepted – that the hair would be damaged. The innovative YUKO SYSTEM “repair” however, not only straightens curly or wavy hair, but also has the ability to turn damaged hair back into healthy hair. It makes healthy hair glossier and shinier and offers a hair care menu that belies the accepted truth about straight permanents: It actually restores damaged hair.
QWhy YUKO SYSTEM? How can I restore my damaged hair?
Hair can be damaged when the hair cuticles are torn or when there is a loss of protein from within the hair shaft. This unique new hair care system restores those nutrients to the hair by using a specially designed iron, heated to 180º C, to heat-seal collagen, keratin, silk protein, and other proteins that are naturally present in the hair. Finishing off with Phi-ten treatments, hair is left feeling noticeably healthier and shinier!
QWhat is Repair?
The word “repair” means restore, as well as fix. We gave the name Repair to the straight permanent process we developed because our process aims not only to straighten wavy or curly hair, but also to restore and revitalize it.
The straight permanents of the past were intended only to straighten naturally or artificially curly hair. Everyone assumed that the damage caused by the process was unavoidable. REPAIR, however, not only straightens curly or wavy hair, but also has the ability to turn damaged hair back into healthy hair. It makes healthy hair glossier and shinier. REPAIR offers a hair care menu that belies the accepted truth about straight permanents; it actually restores damaged hair.
QWhat are the Permanents?
As you know, permanents first chemically break the bonds connecting the proteins that make up the hair, then apply a wave (or other shape) to the hair while it is malleable, and finally restore the hair’s protein bonds to fix it in the new shape. Both permanent waves and straight permanents operate under this same principle.
QHow is REPAIR different from the straightening methods of the past?
The condition of the separated faces that remain after the protein chain is cut by chemicals is very important. If the surfaces are cut unevenly, they do not line up well when they are reconnected later on. In the body, when you cut yourself with a sharp knife, the wound tends to heal better than when you cut yourself with a blunt knife. The situation is similar with permanents. One thing that makes REPAIR special is its use of a permanent chemical that allows it to cut the cystine bonds very cleanly. The straight permanents of the past could not achieve the same clean cuts.
