Have you ever found yourself sick and tired of waking up during the early hours of the morning just to flat iron your curly locks? Now, you don’t have to fret as our Japanese hair straightening treatment will leave you with gorgeous locks for days on end.

Planet Hair is proud to be leading the way for Japanese hair straightening in Sydney. Those with curly or wavy tresses may be in search of a salon that offers shiseido hair straightening. Japanese flat iron treatments have become widely popular as keratin treatments have been found to have harmful side effects.

This flat ironing system was created in Japan in 1996 by Yuko Yamashita. She is a stylist and salon owner who developed a treatment that left her clients with happy and healthy locks, no matter their curl type.
This Japanese straightening method works by applying a solution to the mane which changes the bonds in the strands that cause curls and waves. These bonds then become straight with the help of a flat iron. While Liscio flat ironing can take a few hours to complete the process, many still choose the treatment as it can last up to six months.
While there are benefits to be enjoyed from this process additionally known as Shiseido hair straightening, it is important to have this treatment done by a professional. Whenever there are chemicals involved it is crucial to be in the right hands in order to avoid any damage to the locks.

There are many benefits to be gained from this Japanese straightening treatment. This is proven by the thousands of salons globally that are using the shiseido hair straightening system.
Women worldwide are left with sleek, shiny, and healthy locks and leave plenty of positive reviews. Some of the following benefits can be experienced:

More time in the morning

Those with curly or wavy tresses know how much time it can take to tame their locks in the morning. It can be extremely frustrating to look professional, confident, and in control when frizz, knots, and curls bounce around everywhere. For those looking for a solution to tame the waves, fear no more. Japanese straightening can work out the kinks!

More time can be saved in the morning by not having to use a hot iron or blow dryer every single day, and less time can be spent in the bathroom (which can be especially handy for someone who lives in a crowded house). For those wishing to save time when getting ready for the day, the Yuko and shiseido hair straightening system may be just the thing they need.

More confidence

So many people are left feeling flat and defeated when they lose the battle with their curly mane. Those who opt for Japanese straightening in Sydney have reported more confidence and happiness in their day-to-day lives.

Going on a first date doesn’t have to be a nerve-wracking experience, as after receiving Liscio's hair straightening, it is much more likely for the strands to co-operate. Clients can confidently attend job interviews, and reunions, and no longer have to run away every time the camera comes out.

You can go out in the rain

People with curly locks fully understand the mayhem caused when it rains. This is where Japanese straightening can help! Many obsessively carry an umbrella with them just in case the weather changes. Furthermore, it is so easy for waves to turn into frizz as soon as it gets a little humid. Opting for Liscio hair straightening is the perfect way to feel safe when stepping out of the house, no matter the climate.

Save money

Shiseido hair straightening means fewer products can be used when getting ready in the morning. Those who experience frizz know how pricey it can get when you need hairspray, mouse, clips, smoothing serums, and much more, just to have the simplest of looks. A more cost-effective option is to choose a Japanese flat iron treatment to reduce the number of products used.

The Process

It is imperative to seek professional help when opting for Japanese straightening in Sydney. As chemicals are used, they need to be handled by someone who knows what they are doing.

Furthermore, it has to first be established if the locks are strong enough to withstand the treatment. These are factors that are important to keep in mind when searching for Liscio Japanese straightening.
The process at Planet Hair usually consists of the following steps:

Our Shiseido hair straightening salon will first organise an assessment. This way the strands can be checked, and it can be established if the strands have any previous colour or damage. The stylist can then best assess if the treatment can go ahead or if some extra products can be used to reduce any damage.


Protecting products are applied to prevent any damage during the shiseido hair straightening process. Depending on the condition of the strands, the amount of product needed will vary.

The next step in Liscio Japanese straightening is the application. The chemicals are applied and left to process accordingly. This is the step that changes the bonds in the strands.


After a gentle dry, the locks are ironed with a professional salon tool in a specific setting. A neutraliser is then applied to the tresses once the ironing process is done. This solidifies the whole process.

All that is left to do is to rinse, dry, and style accordingly. The client will get to have the first glimpse of their amazing new and sleek locks. Our professional stylists will have the opportunity to recommend any products that can be used in-between treatments to ensure that the strands stay strong and to get the most out of the Japanese straightening process.

At the end of the day, it is up to the individual if they decide to go for this type of treatment. As earlier discussed it is essential to find a professional who has experience with this process. There are many benefits to be had from this program, and many women have enjoyed regular treatments over the years.

It can be a cost-effective and time-efficient option to choose, and many increases the joy in their daily lives because of it. For first-timers, it is wise to do a little research, and read testimonials before choosing a professional salon. On the other hand, sometimes the best thing to do is to simply try the hair straightening treatment. This way, the individual can decide if this method is right for them.

Our stylists take great pride in their shiseido hair straightening techniques.
