Being a New Jersey native, I really thought my big, frizzy hair was just a way of life. It was poufy and had way too much body—something I always blamed on humidity, heredity and occasionally even my blow dryer.
Then, I heard about Yuko’s brand new Anti-Frizz Treatment and it was like hearing angels sing! Yuko, the experts in Japanese hair straightening, recently came out with an innovative anti-frizz treatment which promises to make hair more manageable and healthy while minimizing the frizz-factor. Even better? It doesn’t contain any of those nasty formaldehyde or toxic chemicals associated with some of those other potentially carcinogenic treatments. Nope – it’s safe, gentle and contains a proprietary blend of silk, wheat, meadowfoam, palm oil and a secret texture transforming weapon, thioglycerin.
Right before my very eyes, my hair became what I had always dreamed of: silky, soft, shiny and infused with moisture. Plus, it seriously cut down on my hair’s “volume.” I’m hooked and pretty sure these women are too.
How hair is transformed, in under 90 minutes:
Step 1 – Hair is washed with a special, sulfate free shampoo.
Step 2 – Expert stylist applies Solution 1, which relaxes the hair. Since I have color treated hair (one of my favorite past times seems to be abusing my hair with bleach), the treatment was left on for just 10 minutes and then the solution was rinsed out.
Step 3 – Expert stylist applies Solution 2, which infuses the hair with a healthy dose of vitamins and nourishing ingredients. This was left on for about 10 minutes, and then was washed out.
Step 4 – Hair is blow dried and flat ironed to thermally lock in results and ensure lasting sleekness and smoothness.
Step 5 – Go to dinner with incredible hair! But make sure to stay out of rain and even the shower for 2 days after the treatment—otherwise you run the risk of reducing effectiveness. Plus see the video demonstration of the process below:
A note on the proper after care post, the 24 hour waiting period for any dry, sensitive or damaged locks: to prolong the life of fabulous hair, wash hair with mineral rich, sulfate and paraben-free Kokoro G Shampoo and follow with keratin infused (it even has silk proteins to soften) Kokoro G Treatment.
Hair’s fluff and frizz is tamed and the root is fortified to leave strands healthy, nourished and professionally done each time you blow dry. Yuko‘s Anti-Frizz Treatment does not give you permanent straightening, but hair’s frizz and body are kept in check for up to 3 months and the results so far have been killer.
Bottom line, I’m not sure how I lived prior to YUKO’s lifesaver and time-saver treatment in the frizz-friendly summer months.
Featuring the amazing smoothing and coating properties of meadowfoam seed oil, a heat-activated moisturizer, the entire line is perfect for any hair type and conditions the hair to retain moisture.
Each product also boasts its own unique blend of naturally-derived ingredients such as apple, tsubaki, rice bran, guar bean, corn starch and bees wax. The new ANTI-FRIZZ BY YUKO Home Care Line includes the ANTI-FRIZZ By YUKO Shampoo to restore & refresh; ANTI-FRIZZ By YUKO Conditioner to revitalize and add shine; heat-activated ANTI-FRIZZ By YUKO Leave-In Conditioner and ANTI-FRIZZ By YUKO Serum to smooth and add shine to the hair.
YUKO uses NO preservatives, parabens, sodium chloride, sulfates, petrochemicals or animal testing to provide healthy and manageable hair. The line helps to protect colored hair as the meadow foam produces a protective coating on the hair shaft!
Yuko Yamashita, the founder of the YUKO system, says “ANTI-FRIZZ BY YUKO is the perfect complement to my original permanent straightening treatment.” With no harmful fumes, nausea, or burning eyes and nose, ANTI-FRIZZ BY YUKO is safe, gentle and natural. Now, according to Yamashita, this brand new home care line “allows the client to bring the same breakthrough formula into their home to maintain and extend the life of the treatment while making their hair healthier and more manageable.”
