A flat iron just doesn't do it for you, huh, curly head? Not chemical relaxers either? Maybe thermal reconditioning will satisfy your craving for a sleek head of hair.
A semi-permanent hair straightening method, thermal reconditioning, involves applying a cornstarch-based chemical to your hair then straightening it with a heated flat iron. You might have heard it called "Japanese thermal straightening" or "the Yukos System," (after the Japan-based company that popularized the technique).
*Warning: thermal reconditioning can be an ordeal, taking three to six hours to complete. What's the reward for your patience? It can last up to six months. Yippee!
