What is Yaki hair? How can RevAir give me a Yaki result?
“Yaki'' is a term used to describe the texture or appearance of hair! Yaki typically refers to extensions that are designed to mimic natural, textured hair, and can be coily, relaxed, wavy, or stretched - while still retaining its natural texture and feel, versus a straighter or sleeker look such as textured hair that has been silk pressed/flat ironed and does not retain its original texture after styling.
The RevAir can be used to play around with all of these different results depending on the settings used! For those with type 3-4 curls, there are options to the level of stretch you're able to achieve.
Check out this video with RevAir partner Tia Streaty for an example!
- Using the low (I) heat on the Wand and a lower tension setting on the Base unit (2-3), you can dry your hair for a “kinky Yaki” finish.
- Using the low (I) heat on the Wand and a bit higher tension setting on the Base unit (4-5), you can dry your hair for a regular “Yaki” or textured and stretched finish.
- Using the high (II) heat on the Wand and the highest tension setting on the Base unit (7), you can dry your hair for a straighter, stretched, and smoother “Yaki” finish.
All of these techniques end with a beautiful result that celebrates your natural hair texture!
