    I think it's a chemical treatment, kind of like a perm but straightning.

    Yep, lots of Afro-Carribean women where I live have their frizz straightened out with a more extreme version of the straightening perm.

    Oh, yeah, it lasts about six months. You are supposed to have a consultation first so they can find out how intense the teatment needs to be for your hair and if your hair type is suitable. One of the types is the Yuko System. It straightens your hair and actually improves the condition.

    You can read about it all over the internet. Here's a good website to check out: http://www.go-straight.com/

    the only thing about those treatments are.......you cant apply them to coloured hair

    so if you're already dyed........u cant have it

    try....umberto gianni straightening balm.....you apply it to damp hair and blow dry through.......your hair will be soft and straight

    I got a chemical defrizzing treatment at a salon. It worked wonders. It cut down my hair to about half the thickness, but I still have body and curl. It lasted for about six months. The only thing you need to do is depending on how fast your hair grows, get the regrowth touched up every few months or so, but I haven't had to have this done yet.

    I recently had a Japanese Reconditioning (straightening) Treatment. The woman, who is Japanese and was trained in Japan, said that it would last up to a year and that I may need to come back in 6 months for upkeep on sections of newly grown hair, near the roots.
    My hair is now pin straight and I don't have to blow it dry or flat iron after shampoo-ing. I love the way my hair feels. My hair shinier and softer than it has ever been.

    I don't know what relaxing perms involve, but my stylist (who recommended the reconditioning treatment) said that the Japanese Reconditioning was not remotely as damaging. Also, flat ironing and blow drying on a daily basis is probablymore damaging on your hair.

    Oh, and yeah, the technician working on my hair turned away a woman who walked in for consultation because she had processed/colored hair. She also said that she didn't recommend the treatment for people with fine hair.

    Personally, I love my hair after the treatment and would recommend it to anyone interested.
