Japanese hair straightening is a popular method of straightening curly or wavy hair. While many women with curly hair swear by it, this method is controversial because it can wreck havoc on hair if done incorrectly or by an inexperienced stylist.
The History of Japanese Hair Straightening in the US
The treatments were so popular they jumped coasts and became popular on the West Coast and then in big cities across the country.
A couple years after keratin treatments became popular, reports emerged of how much formaldehyde (a known carcinogen) was used in the Brazilian treatments and the popularity of the treatments decreased. Now Japanese hair straightening has enjoyed a minor surge in popularity due to the bad media coverage Brazilian treatments have received.
How Japanese Hair Straightening Works
Japanese hair straightening relies on a special solution that's applied to hair. This solution breaks down the hair's bond that gives it its shape allowing it to become pin-straight with the help of a flat-iron.
The entire process is labor and time-intensive. Depending on the length of your hair and its thickness, you can expect to be in the salon for a few hours.
How Long Does it Last & How Much Does it Cost?
Treatments will last about six months -- twice as long as the Brazilian straightening method. The costs range depending on where you live. In cities where prices are competitive, you will pay less. For example, at the time of this writing you could get a treatment done in the Queens borough of NY for 0, while the more upscale spots in downtown Manhattan charge 0 and up.
How to Take Care of Your Hair Post-Treatment
You have to be very careful with your new pin-straight hair after treatment. You can't wash it or pull it up into a ponytail for at least 3 days while it sets.
What are the Expected Results?
Is This Treatment Bad for Your Hair?
If you have this treatment done by someone who doesn't know what they are doing, you can be left with disastrous results -- fried hair, hair loss etc.
If your hair has been colored or if you've had other chemical treatments, you risk damaging your hair. An experienced stylist should know if your hair is a good candidate for treatment. Be honest, if you've had your hair colored or highlighted, speak up about it.
To avoid problems, select a stylist experienced in Japanese hair straightening. Ask questions including approximately how many treatments they've done and how many years they've been doing them. You can also consult Yelp for online reviews of salons.

What can we do to create the illusion of depth in our designs?
There are 2 types of depth cues
- pictorial cues — can be reproduced in a photograph or realistic painting
- non-pictorial cues — can’t be reproduced in a photograph or realistic painting
Pictorial depth cues do not have to be applied singularly to the entire design. They can be applied independently to the different elements that make up your design.
Your visitor will find depth even in a flat design so the question isn’t whether or not to be 3d or 2d, the question is which depth cues will you use.
The rest of this post will focus on some pictorial depth cues.
Pictorial Depth Cues
Below are some of the different cues we can use to give the illusion of depth being present in a design.
When one object obscures part of another object it’s clear there must be a depth of space between them. Objects that are nearer occlude (cover up) objects that are further away.
It’s important that the partially occluded objects are recognized for their complete shapes or the total composition can be seen as two shapes sitting side by side.
One way we can use the above is to organize information so that more important information partially occludes less important information.
Size and scale
We can use the above to show the relative importance of information. Less important information will take up less space and be smaller.
A ground texture can also provides a size reference for other objects.
These lines don’t need to be visible, though they can be. They can also be implied by the objects in the composition.
Perspective is by definition a technique for representing 3-dimensional objects and depth relationships on a 2-dimensional surface.
When the shadow is smaller, darker, crisper, and nearer the object casting it, the nearer the object is to the surface holding the shadow.
You can increase the depth by making the shadow larger and lighter and placing it further away from the object. Blurring the edges of shadows also increases the illusion of depth.
Location on the picture plane
Perhaps this has to do with a look at the world around us.
When we stand in our 3-dimensional world it’s those things we see at the bottom (the earth, the grass, the pavement) are those we’re physically connected with, those things that are generally closer to us.
The clouds, the sky, the stars, those things we see above are also further away from us.
Lighting and shading
Gradients, Bevels, Embosses, and the like show depth in the way light is held and reflected off a surface.
The surface of an object can also show more or less light depending on its orientation from the light source. Closer to the light source will show a brighter surface with more reflected light.
Depth of field (focus)
The closer another object is to the one with the focus, the less depth is perceived between the two. The further away on the same depth plane an object is from the focused one, the blurrier it should appear.
This is true regardless of whether or not the out of focus objects are nearer or further from you. The blurriness is relative to the difference in depth with the object in focus.

Reference to nearby or known objects
The known object adds a context tied to the absolute world and as such adds scale to the picture.
The nearby object adds a different kind of context, but a context nonetheless. An object can only be small in relation to another larger object.
Degree of contrast
It also helps account for depth of field as the greater the contrast in focus and blurriness, the greater the distance.
Since the canvas we work in is 2-dimensional, we can only impart a sense of depth through visual depth cues. There are a variety of different cues you can use, each communicating in its own unique way and each with a different strength in making us see depth.
