Have you heard about the NEWEST rebonding / perming chemical service that has taken over many top hair salons in Tokyo, Paris and London? We don't often rave about hair straightening treatments but this revolutionary treatment has gotten us more than a little intrigued!
We delve deep into the chemistry of this treatment to share with you the 10 things you absolutely have to know about Tokio de Sinka!
Few salons dare to rebond bleached hair because the damage from the typical rebonding process will “fry” the bleached hair and cause it to break.
To deal with this problem, Japanese chemists took several years to come up with revolutionary new straightening solution that is safe to use even on bleached hair – Tokio de Sinka! Unlike typical rebonding chemicals which uses high heat and alkaline straighteners that can cause a lot of damage, Tokio de Sinka includes several innovative ingredients to minimize the use of heat. More importantly, it uses a slightly acidic straightener instead of the usual alkaline straighteners, which causes minimal damage to the hair!
Add their patented INKARAMI treatment technology to repair the hair and you’ve got Tokio de Sinka – the only straightening solution we know that is suitable to straighten bleached hair without "frying" it!
Note however that not all bleached hair can go for the rebonding. If your hair has been bleached several times, it would be better to consult with your stylist before going ahead with the hair service!
You may not be able to win a Nobel prize but you can still have a Nobel prize winning ingredient on your hair.
Tokio rebonding contains a relatively new chemical element Fullerene which as of now is the World's Best Antioxidant. Just to give you a better idea of its antioxidant powers, Fullerene is up to 175x stronger than Vitamin C in removing active oxygen and therefore protecting against excessive UV damage!
Not many people know this but sun rays can also damage your hair by oxidizing and damaging the hair cuticles! This makes your hair more brittle, more dry and causes hair to break more easily as your hair loses its natural oils within. There is even evidence that UV causes your hair to turn grey earlier.
According to studies done in Japan, Fullerene helps protect against UVB rays to minimize oxidation and cuticle damage. As you can see from the microscopic images above, adding just 0.5% fullerene reduces the damage on hair cuticles significantly!
TOKIO de Sinka is so far the ONLY rebonding solution that contains the miracle ingredient Fullerene that is able to protect your hair against UV even as it straightens. Therefore, you can look forward to healthy straightened hair for months!
Usually rebonding only straightens your hair and does not repair, but Tokio rebonding outshines other rebonding services as it repairs even as it straightens! This is possible through its patented Inkarami Aggregation Bond process that uses 2 unique types of micro-molecular keratin amino acids that entwines and forms macromolecular keratin proteins all the way into the core of the hair shaft!
This prevents against further protein loss and changes the hair's surface layer. The addition of another 4 types of keratins further reinforces the resistance of the hair up to 140% and allow it to regain flexibility and lightness at the same time.
These 4 types of keratins combine to repair the hair and bolster hair strength even as it straightens!
Although Tokio de Sinka contains various types of Keratins, this is not a Keratin treatment or Brazilian Blowout!
The keratins are deposited deep into the hair and doesn't just coat the hair on the outside.
The Tokio de Sinka Rebonding therefore works more like Japanese straightening system which does not release formaldehyde at any part of the process!
Although more commonly used for rebonding, Tokio De Sinka can also be used to perm and create waves for your hair!
Straight, curly or wavy, Tokio de Sinka can most likely give you the hair of your dreams, even if your hair was damaged.
After a bad perm by a Korean stylist (not on Beauty Undercover), Act Point Salon saved Agent S's hair with Tokio de Sinka.
Stay tuned for her experience!
Many people find that their hair becomes frizzy and damaged after getting a perm or rebonding.

However, the Tokio perm actually makes sure that your hair remains silky and glossy weeks after the perm. It does so via the inclusion of 2 moisturizing ingredients – CMC (18MEA) and Gemini type amino acid!
When added together, the repair powers of CMC, Gemini type amino acid and Pellicer build onto itself to make sure that the hair does not tangle as easily, your colours last longer and your hair becomes more resistant to damage!
As you close your eyes and get your hair washed by your stylist, you may get a whiff of the lemongrass scent that somehow reminds us of a spa!
Throughout the rest of the hair service, we also found that the chemical smell from Tokio de Sinka is not as strong as other perming / rebonding lotions!
Whether you have dry, brittle and porous hair or natural afro hair frizzy or damaged by straightening, Tokio de Sinka can hydrate your hair and keep it silky and frizz-free!
