What is Momoko Hair Shaping?

Momoko hair straightening is also known as ‘Thermal Reconditioning’ and is the process of releasing the structural bonds of the hair, through a formulated chemical solution.

This results in permanently soft, straight hair that is not only in better condition than previously but also does not reform to its old shape even after washing, styling etc.
