What is permanent hair straightening?
Permanent hair straightening goes by many names, you may have heard of Bio ionic straightening, thermal ionic straightening, Japanese straightening, and the good old chemical straightening! It is all the same thermal reconditioning process.
Permanent straightening is a process that is done to the hair to change its natural structure from curly, wavy or frizzy to silky smooth and straight, permanently!
A chemical known as ammonium thioglycolate, which is the active ingredient in thermal straightening, works by breaking down the natural curly bonds in the hair, and then a neutralising solution is used to recondition the hair in its new state which is silky straight and frizz free.
How is the ionic hair straightening process done at Delilah?
After a thorough consultation with one of our permanent hair straightening technicians, your hair is deep cleansed twice to remove all impurities with a special purifying shampoo.
Our world class thermal straightening solution is applied to your hair and left to process between half an hour and 1 hour.
After a thorough rinsing of around 10 minutes, your hair is blow dried and then ironed completely straight, but not just any old ironing! We must do it in very small half centimeter sections, starting from your nape and finishing at the top of your head.
Next, a neutralizing solution is applied to your hair and left for 10 minutes.
After another thorough rinsing, your hair is once again dried and ironed straight and you are free to go with your hair lusciously smooth and straight.
How are Keratin Smoothing and Permanent Straightening different?
Keratin Straightening and Permanent Straightening may seem to have a few of the same benefits but they are quite different. Keratin Smoothing Treatments tame the hair and eliminate frizz while relaxing the curl and add a lot of moisture and conditioning while permanent straightening changes the internal structure of the hair to be straight. Keratin smoothing lasts between 3 and 5 months and permanent hair straightening grows out. Some people choose to start with a Keratin Smoothing to see the benefits and then move to a Permanent Hair Straightening if they feel they need even straighter hair and some people have a Japanese Straightening first and then have Keratin Straightening to compliment it.

How do I know if permanent hair straightening is right for me?
During a consultation at our studio, we will analyse your hair, and if necessary, do a strand test with our solution (which only takes 10 minutes), to make sure that hair straightening is right for you. Some reasons that permanent straightening may not be appropriate for your hair are:
- Over coloured/bleached hair.
- Too damaged or broken.
- Over processed by another procedure.
A consultation at our studio generally goes for no longer than 15 minutes.
