Smoothing out your hair in the morning is a hassle, typically involving haranguing it with a straightening iron or running it through the fingers of a jazz pianist. Simplify your routine with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $99 for a keratin hair-straightening treatment (up to a $312.50 value)
- $150 for a Japanese hair-straightening treatment (up to a $437.50 value)
Both treatments are priced by the hour, with keratin treatments taking roughly 2.5 hours to complete, and Japanese hair-straightening treatments lasting up to 3.5 hours.
For keratin treatments, results last between four and five months. In the Japanese hair-straightening treatment, various solutions and chemicals are applied and washed from the hair, with straightening and blow-drying occurring between steps. This process produces results that can be permanent, with new growth requiring additional treatments.
Some hair-straightening products that claim to be formaldehyde-free include aldehyde compounds, which are similar to the carcinogen formaldehyde. Side effects may include nosebleeds, headaches, vomiting, and respiratory problems, among others. Learn more about the health risks here.
