New Hair Straightening Facts
In 1996, Japanese company MILBON™ developed LISCIO solution designed
to straighten kinky or frizzy hair. Unlike traditional relaxers containing
harsh chemicals, Liscio solution is gentler to the hair. It has specially formulated
ingredients that help to protect and to repair hair from heat damage.
Liscio ws first introduced to American consumers in 1998 by Shinibi and was welcomed by women who longed to have pin straight hair. In 2004, Milbon, the manufactuer of Liscio hairstraightening products took over their own business. With added protein treatments and supporting products for the thermal reconditioning prodecures, many happy and satisfied clients proclaim that their hair condition has actually improved after the Japanese hair straightening treatment.
Comparing LISCIO to Similar Hair Straightening Systems
YUKO™ is the very first Thermal Reconditioning system. Both LISCIO and YUKO™
products contain similar ingredients, however, YUKO System™ only has one solution
strength, which makes it hard to use on different hair types.
CHI Transformation System™
CHI is a relatively new hair straightening system. The flat iron only
has one temperature, which makes it difficult to customize individual client's
hair. After hair is straightened, a blow dryer is still needed to keep the hair
- Iron Difference: Uneven heating plate on its irons can cause damage to the
fragile hair during the procedure.
- Additional Maintenance: Special blow dryer and brush are required for the
maintenance of straight hair while other systems do not require such
RUSK Thermal Str8™
- Different Iron: RUSK™ iron does not have an evenly heated plate, which reduces
its effect of the ironing procedure, nor does it have customized features. In
addition, RUSK™ iron does not has a temperature control, so the hair may be
burned during the processing time.
- Different Activator Solution: It has the same Thio based activator. However,
it does not have any heat protecting ingredient, thus it causes the hair more
susceptible to heat damage during the ironing procedure.

have different opinions.
