The place's where your hair is "bent" happens because the stylist laid the hair to flat on the scalp when doing the TR. It's another reason why its recommended that the chemical stay ½ to ¾ inch away from the scalp. Especially beginners at doing this procedure.
There are two different types of bends that can occur during the TR process.
A chemical bend, which can happen from the straightener being left on too long and the neutralizer going to flat to the scalp. This may break the hair if you are not gentle.
A mechanical bend, which happens from improper ironing of the hair during the process. These bends are permanent and very difficult to remove. Removing them can be a dangerous process. It's best to wait until the hair grows out or can be looked at, after the TR process.
Penetraitt makes the hair too soft and you need a protein that coats the cuticle and gives it strength. In salons we have Noiraude Pro. Its a series of proteins that build up the cuticle and gives strength. It costs about 100 per treatment. At home you should use ID care PPT. It contains Keratin and the collagen in the product reacts when you apply haet. It's pretty effective as well and not as expensive as the Noiruade Pro treatment.
After you strenthen the hair you can go to someone who has experience with the Japanese straightener to straighten out the bends. They have to be careful & meticulous. I sometimes use a cutip to make sure the placement of the chemical is just right.
