Professional Hair Straightening...

Hi Guys, this is a question on behalf of our 13 year old who will be travelling with us in October this year to NYC, she loves to have her hair straightened at home, with her own hair straightener, and her mother has requested I ask the question on here about the possibility of us getting it done for her in a semi permanent/permanent way whilst we are in NYC, sorry guys I'm a bit clueless about this sort of thing but I have fulfilled my part of the bargain and asked you all the question...lol

Many of the salons in Koreatown and Chinatown do straight perm for a good price without having to look for special deals (eg Lifebooker, Groupon etc). There is also Brazilian keratin treatment that won't give that pin straight look but still easy to manage. Will take about 2-3hours depending on length of hair and lasts several months.

Many of the keratin hair treatments contain formaldehyde. You may want to educate yourself before deciding if you want your daughter to get the treatment. Just a heads up!
