Pin Straight/ Japanese Reconditioning

The most exciting thing to happen to wavy, frizzy or curly hair has come to Chrysalis Salon.
The revolutionary Japanese process using LISCIO products which can transform unmanageable hair to straight and soft with amazing shine!

The entire Pin Straight service takes up to 6 hours, depending on the length and condition of the hair, which makes it necessary to first arrange for a consultation appointment. At that time your hair will be analyzed to determine the process required as well as the cost determination.

The Pin Straight system, also known as Thermal Reconditioning, uses heat to restructure the cuticle of the hair to lay flat and smooth.

The Thermal Reconditioning system has been featured in many leading hair and beauty magazines, and has truly become a dream-come-true for so many. It’s time to stop gazing into magazines and wishing for model-straight hair…with Pin Straight this can be a reality!

Feel free to arrange for a complementary consultation. Summer and its humidity are on the way!

Pin Straight…the process

* Moisturizing shampoo
* Protein treatment applied to strengthen damaged or porous areas
* Protection is applied to individual highlights and stressed or damaged areas
* “Softening” solutions are applied which cuts the “Cystine Bonds” in the hair, relaxing the wave or curl
* Hair is tested for necessary “softening” to determine if bonds are sufficiently cut
* Hair is rinsed and additional protein is applied
* Hair is blow-dried to eliminate most moisture
* Thermal process applied — hair is flat-ironed in extremely small sections wit specially designed tools which can reach temperatures up to 356° F
* Neutralizer is applied to re-shape the “Cystine Bonds”
* Hair is rinsed, conditioned, and styled

Some typical questions regarding Pin Straight

How long will Pin Straight last?
Treated hair will be straight forever! New hair, however, will be your natural texture.

How will my hair look after the process?
Your hair will be straight, with a soft feel and lots of shine!

Will I need to blow-dry my hair after the process?
Yes, but the time will be reduced dramatically. You will no longer have to put as much time and effort to maintain your smooth, straight style, even on humid days

How do I maintain my hair when the natural texture grows in?
Only the new growth is re-processed. The charges are usually 20% less, although the same amount of time is required in the retouch

How often must treatments be done?
Usually every 4-6 months the re-growth needs to be done, depending on the length and texture of your hair. Typically, longer hair needs to be done less frequently since the weight of the hair tends to stretch the re-growth. On hair that is very curly in certain areas (such as the hairline). These areas can be done more often if necessary.

Caring for your newly treated hair
For the 48 hours after your Pin Straight treatment, no shampooing, please. Wetting with water is fine to restyle, if necessary. We also advise that you do not clip, pin, put your hair in a pony tail, or tuck around your ears during this period. It is best to wait about 2 weeks before getting color or highlights.

Some comments from Thermal Reconditioning clients:

“My life and my attitude towards my hair are completely different now…I don’t live in fear of the humidity and rain and worry that my hair will be frizzy”.

” The LISCIO system has made a huge impact in my confidence level. My hair always looks healthy and professional and takes a fraction of the time to blow-dry than before the service”.

The LISCIO system is truly remarkable. I would recommend it to anyone who has been struggling with blow-drying frizzy or unmanageable hair”.
