Sinka Smoothing 3 month after : test and review

Résultats et avis sur le lissage Sinka

For several years now, a new smoothing system has been imposed in the best hairdressing salons in the big trendy cities: the SINKA straightening system and its INKARAMI technology.

Also known simply as Japanese straightening, as opposed to Brazilian straightening, Sinka straightening is known for its ability to durably smooth hair while repairing it. By all accounts, with this smoothing you can say goodbye to your good old hair straightener, but is it really true?

How does Sinka smoothing work?

While the process may seem like a lengthy 3 to 4 hour process, not to mention quite expensive, it is because it involves many important steps to repair and protect your hair.

The six steps are as follows:

  • Wash with a PH neutral shampoo.
  • Soften hair with a reducing product.
  • Moisturize the hair with a specific treatment
  • Smooth hair with a comb, rinse and dry.
  • Smooth with hot plates
  • Fix hair with hairspray before rinsing and styling

Hidden in these steps we find the secret of the success of this method: fullerenes. These molecules have an extreme anti-oxidant power and, when applied to your hair, they prevent the cuticles from expanding. This protects your hair from external aggressions, especially from the sun’s UV rays.

Results according to your hair type

As you know, some hair types are harder to straighten, especially curly and frizzy hair. The great advantage of Sinka Straightening is that it smoothes even the most curly hair.

The hair type must therefore be taken into account. Another question you often ask yourself is that of coloring. You may not know it, but usually you don’t want to straighten hair after applying haircolor. Sinka straightening does just that. Better yet, thanks to its regenerative capacity, this straightening is precisely adapted to post-color care, because it repairs the damage caused by coloring agents.

As for the duration of the result, this depends on only one factor: the growth of your hair. Where Brazilian straightening tends to lose its effectiveness (shine and ease of brushing) after a month and a half or two months, Japanese straightening is permanent.

Hair straightened with this method remains smooth, the result will accompany you for months and months… until the new roots become too obvious. Remember that these new roots are your natural, unsmoothed hair. Depending on the cut you wear, you may need to use new treatments after four or five months.

Positive opinions and adaptation to fashion

By looking for reviews all over the internet, you will mostly find positive feedback. Permanent straightening and hair repair convinces everyone.

Moreover, you may have noticed that some new Quebec hair styles are particularly aimed at straight hair, especially styles with side parting and those containing accessories.

You’ll be able to use the hours you spend in the salon to try a trendy cut with straight hair, or to wear chains or pearls without them disappearing under your curls. And if you go bi-color, Sinka Straightening is the perfect treatment to repair the damage left by coloring agents.

What kind of haircut in Quebec in winter?

coupe de cheveux au Québec en hiver

Falling temperatures, piles of leaves and the return of spicy hot drinks are no lie: winter is fast approaching in Quebec. And with it comes its share of hair inconveniences: between the cold and the accessories designed to protect us from it (hats, headbands, etc.), your beautiful locks often look sad during this season.

But winter is also synonymous with festivities: Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year, so many occasions to get dressed up, including your hair!

So, what cut should you choose to pamper your hair and be trendy for the end of the year?

Go for the mid-length!

Easy to live with and easy to care for, this haircut also fits all faces. It will be THE trendy cut for the end of the year 2020. Many celebrities have already gotten into it, look at Kaia Gerber, for example!

This cut comes in many variations: plunging square, short or gradient, with or without fringe.

If you want to highlight your lengths (that’s their role after all: they’ll keep you warm during this harsh season!), think about accessorizing, because retro is making a big comeback: headband, scarf, bell hat, be original!

And for the most skillful among you, think about braids, which are also trendy this year, braids (especially worn glued to the skull) and buns will be perfect to keep your hair in place during festive evenings.

Let’s cut it all: short, tomboy style!

The latest fashion shows say it: the short will be as trendy this winter.

If you want to make your life easier and don’t want to have to deal with long sessions of styling, brushing, untangling (the frequency of which can be increased with the wearing of caps, headbands, scarves and other winter accessories), opt for the short!

There is necessarily a short cut adapted to your face, don’t hesitate to talk about it with your hairdresser, he will be happy to advise you. If your lengths have been put to the test this summer (sun, sea, etc.), this is the perfect opportunity to take the plunge and shorten your beautiful mane for this winter.

For the end of the season, it’s the boy’s cut that’s in the wind. Especially the Pixie cut: a few longer strands on the front and the top of the head, shorter on the sides and the nape of the neck.

For styling, nothing could be easier: apply your styling product and play with your style: rock, combed/uncombed, or wet look, and let’s go for the day!

What about shaping?

This winter we’ll play on volume, and on waves in particular. Whether they are subtle or on the contrary accentuated (hair notching, forgotten since the 90s, is making a big comeback), curls will definitely be in fashion this winter. We’ll avoid the long sticks, a little sad and out of fashion.

And what about bangs in all this? The fringe, we keep! Always topical, it will be worn short, very short this winter, whatever the length of your cut. If you don’t already have one, talk to your hairdresser to find the right shape for your face before you take the plunge. It’s all about trimming and tapering to get the effect you want. If the classic fringe seems too slender, go for the curtain fringe that falls on either side or only one side of the face, which is wiser and more discreet than the straight version.

As you can see, there’s something for everyone this season, so unleash your hair creativity!

There are as many facial morphologies and hair textures as there are women. But you have curly hair and are looking for the perfect haircut that will perfectly reflect your personality. Then you have many options.

The morphology of the face and the type of hair

Round face

This morphology reveals a soft person. To accentuate the warm and friendly side of your face, if you have curly hair, adopt a square ball or curly mid-length hair. Keep a certain length at the nape of your neck, with tousled curls for a tousled look.

Square Face

This face shape exudes strength with great energy, you are a dynamic woman. Curly hair has a lot of volume, so you’ll elegantly wear a mid-length or long, layered cut. Fringe can refine your face if worn sideways. To accentuate the softness of your face, you can also lighten your lengths, from one to two shades.

Lengthened face

This face is longer and narrower than the oval shape. A high forehead and a thin chin characterize a voluntary person. Your features are often fine and soft. If you have curly hair, it’s perfect for a layered cut or a medium-long square. Your curls soften your face and especially your forehead with a fringe. Dark roots and light ends help ovalize your face. Curly hair has the advantage of giving the impression of movement in your hair. And consequently of movement of the whole of your face.

Oval face

Remember to thin out your curly hair regularly to air it out. And add a little coconut or jojoba oil to prevent frizz. If you prefer a short cut, remember that the more layered the cut, the more volume in your hair. The ideal compromise is a mid-length cut with a plunging bob. Unveil the lioness inside you with long, curly, voluminous, cascading hair and a smooth fringe. Sublime effect guaranteed!

Multiple fine braids in a bun give a diva look.

Which hair cut for thinning hair?

coupe pour les cheveux clairsemés

In a woman’s life, hair loss is a delicate, sometimes difficult and stressful time. The origin of this kind of problem is linked to the anagen phase of the hair follicles. Hair growth becomes thinner and shorter.

As a result, the hair becomes sparse. Are you prone to this hair problem? Are you anxious that it could affect your image? Do not panic! All it takes is a few scissors strokes to sublimate your appearance and camouflage your thinning hair. Here’s an overview of the hot cuts.

The asymmetrical cut, to bring your hairstyle back to life

The asymmetrical is today a style of hairstyle that is popular with fashion fans. It’s the best way to give a boost and freshness to dull, monotonous hair. From a more pronounced shape to a simple partial cut, it can be done in a wide variety of styles. That said, the asymmetrical cut is an ally for all types of faces.

If you have thinning long hair, the best way to camouflage your androgenetic alopecia is to adopt the light asymmetrical square. This will give a more voluminous character to your mane while making the parts affected by the hair problem invisible. On the other hand, on short hair, it is better to play contrasts with the ball square, but keeping more length on the front of the head. For this, a fringe swept to the side will be ideal.

The shaded bob, an irresistible trend

The refinement of the hair follicles of the scalp most often results in a lack of density. Thus, the hairstyle leaves a finer, flattened and dry look. To blur this lack of volume, use a gradient. Although light tapering is often recommended, it should be avoided. Here, the goal is not to add relief, but to obtain more thickness. The gradient can be realized under different aspects, but it is preferable to adopt the “shag”.

This swag tendency breaks codes and sets its own rules. Juggling between curls, relaxation and consistency, shag can be worn in long or short versions depending on your mane. All you need is the fringe and soft waves to create a sensation. The shag gradient also adapts to all face shapes.

With this trend, you can also free yourself from all styling constraints. Simply run your fingers between your strands to restore tone to your curls. You can also add spray, but just a light puff will do.

The plunging square, the perfect blur

To look for density and to hide the most sparse areas, the plunging square ensures perfect blurring. It will give an impression of lightness with a thicker effect. It is also possible to combine it with a longer wick on the front of your head. This will help camouflage your hair’s widening parting.

Otherwise, why not get caught up in Pixie fashion? It aims to eliminate the flattened effect by creating a wave-like movement with an imposing fringe on the forehead. The center parting will be offset to one side for more dynamism.

Note that if you suffer from female pattern baldness, it is better to refrain from intensive styling. The same goes for the use of waxes, styling gels and even less ointments, as the result will still be stringy. Smoothing with an iron is also to be avoided. It is better to bet on the natural with a slightly battered or crumpled rendering, which we can achieve for you at 2E!

What are the hair fashions in Quebec?

With the arrival of autumn, the year 2020 is drawing to a close and we all hope for a brighter future.

In the meantime, get into fashion with the trendy hairstyles of the fall-winter 2020-2021 season. Short or long hair, natural or colorful, there’s something for everyone, and even for those looking for originality with the new trend of accessories.

The evolution of styles is based on the 2019-2020 season

A year ago, Quebec women’s hair fashion was following these trends: the boy’s cut for short hair, the square for medium-length hair, the curtain fringe and very long and voluminous hair. The fashionable color was red hair in all its variations (auburn, Venetian blond…).

Each of these styles seems to have evolved in a particular sense, that of assertiveness. Weary of world events that afflict us all and restrict your freedoms, you seek to express yourself and this is through more frank, more daring cuts.

Thus, the color trend is no longer towards a soft, plain and harmonious color, but rather towards a bicolor. This new fashion, where hair is dyed in two very different colors, often with strong contrasts, particularly appeals to young, trendy women, who thrive on social networks. Present in complex hairstyles, bicolouring gives very surprising results, drawing real patterns in your hair. And if you’re worried that the health of your hair will suffer from the use of chemical dyes, then choose hair implants!

If coloring no longer satisfies your cravings for originality, another growing trend is accessories. We’re not talking about good old clips and barrettes, but about a real visual explosion in hair ornaments: chains, rivers of pearls, flowers and other patterns… It’s no longer a question of you hesitating or attempting subtlety. Hang pearls between your strands to match your hairstyle to your clothing style.

For short cuts, dare to part and cut with perfect precision

Gone are the mini skirts of summer, here comes the mini fringe of autumn. It’s the ideal hair fashion for those of you who love precision and attention to detail. Only an expert hairdresser will be able to cut your fringe to the exact millimeter to achieve the desired effect. Beware of false notes, the short fringe must fit perfectly to your face, and your face must fit perfectly to the fringe: it’s up to you to adopt the right attitude!

Although they keep their little charm, boyish and square cuts are already becoming too classic. To keep up with the times, these cuts have a rather daring evolution that will leave no one indifferent.

Too wise the boy’s cut? Dare to take a side skate! Perfect for structuring and giving movement to straightened, flattened hair, whether with or without fringe, this parting allows you to assert yourself in a world that is increasingly egalitarian between the sexes, while maintaining a certain elegance. Plus, if you have desperately fine hair, a parting gives it volume and vibrancy.

For the most classic, the half-beauty

If you’re still wearing last winter’s curtain fringe or can’t untangle your long hairstyle, but prefer to avoid the risky bet of short fringe, the classic style for Fall-Winter 2020-2021 is the Half Duvet. But don’t think it’s limited to nice, tidy girls: wavy, even disheveled, this hairstyle can give you a wild look!

It’s the perfect solution for those of you who feel the need to express yourself while maintaining classic charm and elegance.
