Japanese Hair Straightening/Thermal reconditioning

Recommended Posts

Is this OK to do while on Accutane? I've read accutane can effect your hair. I started Acc. today, and my appt for the hair thingy is April 28th. I've been looking forward to that almost as much as tane! Hope I can still do it

I don't really know what japanese hair straightening is, but it's probably fine. Accutane just makes you lose a bit of hair, I barely even notice it. It's just when you wash your hair a few more hairs seems to come out that usual, it's nothing major. For me at least anyway.

Early in the course i'd say go for it. Later in the course when your scalp is drier you should probably leave the decision up to the stylist who can determine if it's strong enough for straightening, and you probably want to go in for a patch test since Accutane can make you sensitive to stuff that you can normally tolerate.

Well Dolph, you're also a boy so I don't believe it's quite as big a deal. I live on a tiny, very hot island and have such thick curly hair that when I walk outside I look like a poodle. I promise, it's no fun.
