Facts about Your Hair

It seems like everyone wants the kind of hair they can’t have – black instead of blonde, straight instead of curly, thicker, shorter, longer – the list goes on and on. There are a million different ways to style, shape and color hair that can make every appearance as unique as you are, and here are some useful facts from the expert hair stylists at Chen Levi NYC Hair Stylist in New York City that can help you change up your look or learn more about what works for you.

Hair reflects light – the shape of your hair is determined by your genes, but the straighter your hair is, the shinier it is going to look. While light can bounce off of the curls and waves in hair, only a straight style will truly be able to reflect the light.

Straight hair is less frizzy – on humid days having frizzy hair is a nightmare for those with curly and wavy hair. Hair that is straighter is less prone to having proteins inflate due to the moisture in the air.

Hair is expensive – doing your hair in the morning can add up to about two hours on average that you spend just wrestling your hair into a look that you want. Additionally, it is estimated that you will spend almost $800 a year on hair products alone for temporary hair solutions that are costing you time and money every day.

There are alternatives to hassling with your hair every day. Japanese hair straightening in NYC is a semi-permanent method that lasts for over six months and can leave you with straight hair that is easy to maintain and style. Save yourself time and money and consult with a specialist about having a hair treatment that works for you.

Facts About Japanese Hair Straightening

Japanese Hair Straightening is intended as a semi-permanent solution for loose to medium curls. A simplified version of the process is as follows: after the hair is treated with a chemical that breaks the bonds dictating the shape of your hair, you will receive a rinse, a blow-dry and finally a comprehensive flat ironing process that locks the neutralizer into the hair. This system will leave your hair straight for many weeks before going back to the natural shape and texture.

Chen Levi uses a new technique for Japanese Hair Straightening in NYC that rejuvenates and repairs damaged hair of any style and still offers great results to customers. Called “REPAIR”, this is the first step in achieving the hairstyle of your dreams and having healthy, straight hair for any style you want. Chen Levi practices the leading techniques and is committed to bringing you great hair that is of the highest quality results. After our Japanese Hair Straightening treatment, you will have hassle-free straight hair that you love.

For information about this amazing new procedure and how we can help give you natural, straight, healthy hair, call Chen Levi today.

Brazilian Keratin Treatment in NYC

Have you been to a salon recently and heard mention of something called a Keratin treatment? The Brazilian Keratin Treatment in NYC is a revolutionary process we offer at Chen Levi salon that softens, shines and straightens the hair, improving its health as well. The Keratin protein will penetrate the hair follicle to repair and prevent future damage. The Brazilian Keratin Treatment is great for the following types of chemically treated hair:
  • bleached hair
  • highlighted hair
  • colored hair
  • permed hair
  • relaxed hair
  • straightened hair
The Brazilian Keratin Treatment in NYC is made of “Keratin” protein which is actually a liquid form of hair itself. No harsh chemicals or dyes are used to open or close the hair cuticle and the treatment is safe for children 6 years and older as well as teens and adults. When we apply the Keratin it only coats the hair without breaking the hair shaft bonds and causing frayed strands. The Keratin substance will moisturize your hair, creating a natural wave, that leaves hair smooth and shiny and healthy.
This treatment does make your hair healthier with each use, but it is not permanent. Within two or three months after the treatment, you will still have manageable, silky hair, but the wave or curl will slowly start returning. The more often you do the Brazilian Keratin Treatment in NYC, the healthier and better looking your hair becomes. Getting stuck in rain or snow will no longer be cause for a meltdown, as your hair will stay frizz-free in any weather conditions.
For more information on the Brazilian Keratin Treatment in NYC, call us at the Chen Levi Salon today at 212-751-6689.

How to Get Straight Hair Without a Straightener & Products

Do you have curly, frizzy, unmanageable hair? If so, straightening it and using hair-relaxing products will not do the trick; at least not for an entire day. Keeping your hair straight and smooth can be a difficult, time consuming and expensive task when you are relying on your blow dryer, hair straightener and drug-store products.

Going to a Brazilian hair straightening salon in NYC may save you the hassle and worry for about three months. Brazilian hair straightening is aimed more toward eliminating frizz and producing a healthy shine by locking in Keratin with a hair straightener. Its main objective is not to keep hair pin straight, like Japanese hair straightening; although it does reduce the majority of curls by smoothing out frizzes.

When Brazilian hair treatment is done every several months, there will be a noticeable difference in your hair's manageability, shine, silkiness and health. Treatment could be anywhere from $150-$400 depending on hair length. Though a Brazilian hair straightening salon in NYC may sound expensive, it is actually a really great investment.

Think of how much money you spend on hair relaxers, hair spray, blow dryers, straighteners and other products that you buy in three to four months time in order to achieve smooth hair. Are you satisfied with the outcome of your hair when you use these products? No matter how much product you use and how much time you spend on trying to straighten and relax your hair, the results will not be comparable to Brazilian hair straightening. It is a one time process that will help you avoid your time consuming, daily hair routine.

A professional Brazilian hair straightening salon in NYC can give you that silky, smooth hair that you have always wanted.

Do you know that kind of glimmering hair you always see in shampoo commercials and hair product advertisements? If that is the kind of hair you are looking for, there is no way to achieve that on your own using products and straightening your hair everyday. In fact, using products, blow drying and straightening your hair daily will give you adverse affects and damage your hair.

Save your next pay check and check out a Brazilian hair straightening salon in NYC, like Chen Levi Hair Design. You will have amazing results that will make you ditch your old products and routines.
