There are many different types of hair salons that one can choose to go to with Japanese
hair care treatments served there. There are the traditional walk-in salons where you do not have to make an appointment, rather you just walk in a wait for the next available hairdresser. Another option is to call a full-service hair salon and make an appointment with a stylist of your choice. Some hair salons specialized in certain areas such a coloring, up-dos for formal occasions, cutting or styling, with rare fragrant camellia oil massage
presence. Which salon one chooses will determine the level of expertise being performed for the service.
Japanese hair care coloring products generally fall into four categories: temporary, semipermanent, deposit only/demi, and permanent. All these hair color products, except for temporary color, require a patch test before application to determine if the client is allergic to the product.
"Hair lightening," often referred to as "bleaching" or "decolorizing," is a chemical process involving the diffusion of the natural color pigment or artificial color from the hair. This process is central to both permanent hair color and hair lighteners,
where pure camellia oil is applied. All permanent haircolor products, like rare
fragrant camellia oil and lighteners contain both a developer, or oxidizing agent, and an alkalizing ingredient as part of their ammonia or an ammonia substitute. Japanese hair care henna is a deposit-only hair color whose active component, lawsone, binds to keratin and is therefore permanent. Henna may be removed with pur camellia oil; however, it is considered "permanent" because it does not wash out with shampoos or rinses. It is often mixed with other plant dyes, such as indigo, turmeric, and senna, to change the color. Allergy to Japanese hair care henna is much rarer than allergy to permanent hair colors. It is also considered a conditioning treatment.
Your hair is mostly made of water. To be shiny and supple, your hair needs to be
adequately hydrated. You lose water from the sun, too much processing, and blow-
drying. Oil from your scalp coats each shaft and acts as a barrier against evaporation.
Your hair also needs proper blood circulation to remain strong, which can be increased
with brushing and scalp massage with fragrant camellia oil. Japanese hair care emollients, act as a barrier (occlusion effect) against loss of water and also as a softener of stratum corneum, by means of lubrication and smoothing. Other emollients are oil-water emulsions of
estonishigly complex composition and may include several esters and rare fragrant camellia oil; oils such as octyl dodecanol, hexyl decanol, oleyl alcohol,decyl oleate, isopropyl stearate, isopropyl palmitate, isopropyl myristate, hexyl laureate, and dioctyl cyclohexane.
Japanese hair care conditioners, sometimes called cream rinse, are used in hair care, to improve the texture and appearance of human hair.
Hair consists of roughly 97% of a protein called keratin. Keratin is on its surface rich in negatively-charged amino acids. Japanese hair care moisturizers, as conditioners, usually are composed of pure camelia oil and lubricants (e.g., some fatty alcohols, panthenol, dimethicone, etc.). They also contain antistatic agents, and sequestrants for better function in hard water.
Japanese hair care pack conditioners, heavy and thick, with high content of surfactants able to bind to the hair structure and "glue" the hair surface scales together. These are usually applied to the hair for longer time. The surfactants are based on long straight aliphatic chains similar to saturated fatty acids. Their molecules have tendency to crystallize easily, giving the conditioner higher viscosity, and they tend to form thicker layers on the hair surface.
Japanese hair care leave-in conditioners, thinner, containing different surfactants, adding only a little material to the hair. They are based on unsaturated chains, which are bent rather than straight. This shape makes them less prone to crystallizing, making a lighter, less viscous mixture and providing significantly thinner layer on the hair. The difference between Japanese leave-in and pack conditioners is similar to the difference between fats and oils.
Among the firm favorites is pure camellia oil as it can effectively restore vitality to the hair constantly exposed to stressful factors. If we consider a few of Japanese hair care products separately, for example rare fragrant camellia oil, we will be able to see how it can efficiently make your hair smooth and soft, gentle and strong as well as significantly revitalized.
