Straightening Treatments

What is the difference between relaxers / Japanese straightening and Global Keratin Hair Treatment?
Global Keratin Hair Treatment is a Keratin based treatment that straightens the hair naturally without strong chemicals. It is a reconditioning treatment that transforms the hair and restores shine. Relaxers and Japanese straightening work on breaking and rearranging the internal bonds of the hair. Once these processes are done, the hair is permanently straightened. The new growth of the Japanese straightening will always be curly, but the previously straightened hair will never revert or blend back.
