      I've done it before. 3 times. One time at home and twice at a beauty salon. I have hella curly kinky hair so I wasted so much money because all it did was make it CURLIER. I had curl locks instead of my normal tiny squiggle locks. I was out here looking from the Victorian age. I was so mad.

    The way that I see that is that if you are using daily heat to style your hair that is very damaging. *raises hand* I tried a Brazilian blowout from a highly reputable hair stylist. My hair wave disappeared, my frizz still lingered. I am honestly considering this Japanese straightening to save time. My hair texture is just annoying. And I've tried many products, high end and suggested by hair stylists. I've tried simple products like even coconut oil. Nothing tames my hair like heat :(. I'm a busy mom of 6 kids so honestly this Japanese straightening in my eyes seems less damaging and time saving.

    The third step, the lotion after the flat iron process, is a Neutralizer, the function is to restore the hair´s pH to it´s normal. The hair relaxer has an high alcaline pH, so it is necessary to use the neutralizer in the end of the process.

    I had a Korean Straight Perm. Takes 3 hours. Works better than a regular relaxer. Last longer but if you grow it out. Any straightening your texture changes. When I had a relaxer, it did not change much after it grew out. But the Korean Perm........after a year and 7 months of no perm....... very different.

    I've had both of these types of these Japanese straightening treatments. The 1 step treatment is cheaper but damages your hair more because no deep conditioning is done. The 1 step treatment is like the first video, you get a solution put in, heat is applied, it is washed out, then your hair is blow-dried and straightened. The 2 step treatment is like the second video, solution and heat is applied, it is washed out, deep conditioning solution is applied, heat is applied, it is washed out, then it is blow-dried and straightened and final solution is applied and kept in for 2 days before washing. In both situations, my perm lasted 6 months only as my hair is naturally wavy and my roots grew out quickly. But the 2-step one ultimately resulted in a better and healthier result. The third time I got my Japanese straightening done I got the 2-step again but the hairdresser applied too much final solution so my hair was suuuuuuuuper greasy for two days then absolutely dry after that. It took 2 years to get rid of that god awful, uncanny pin-straight texture and it made me give up on that treatment process altogether. It was time-consuming (7h process + 2 days no washing) and it was ridiculously expensive (about 450 Canadian dollars and my hair is above my shoulders).

    1) I've lived in 5 different countries- and my favorite place to get my hair done is in Japanese hair salons. They operate a little different then I've experienced in the US or other places I have lived. Most importantly they will ask you around 300 different questions before they pick up the scissors. How you part your hair, what products you use, what foods do you eat, whose hair you like, what job you have, what your favorite things about your hair. They actually go through an consultation (they have done drawings for me to show me what it will look like from the back- so we have an understanding) everytime and because of that I have always gotten the best hair cut from their. (Maybe because it's I'm just a god awful communicator, soo I appreciate them doing all the "work" to figure out what I want. )
    (Also. Gotta love the soothing and heated cloths they put over your eye and under your neck when the wash your hair. Unreal. )
    2) I got a japanese permanent straightening in Tokyo. OMG.GURL. AMAZING. For two years I was the happiest bee there ever was. I natural have the thickest head of hair ever should be allowed (that is what every hairdresser as said to me) so I have never had problems with volume. But I did have huge frizz and my hair is 8 times has big as my head and I wanted to see what it was like to have straight hair. It cost 200 dollars and 7 hours to get my hair done. But it became the softest, sleek, shinest hair from my dreams. For the first time I could run my fingers through my hair! And it felt like silk!! I loves it. And it stayed like that for 2 1/2 years. When my natural waviness did come back it was weighed down a bit by the length of my hair, so all it did was hide my bumpy head a bit with a natural lift. For a girl who has had giant, curly, wavy hair (you can see in my picture) this treatment was a dream come true. DREAM. COME. TRUE. The only con (if we can call it that) was that if I curled my hair for an event- the curl would fall out in 3 hours. I have now finally started to appreciate my lion mane hair though (thanks for letting me see the grass on the other side, Japan) so I have just been sticking to it's natural texture. But oh my goodness. I'm so happy I did it.
    Shout out to: Kenichi momoi the greatest hairdresser of Tokyo!!!

    I love my curly hair. HOWEVER, my hair is naturally curly, meaning that I have to see it day, after day, after day... sometimes we just get bored of it and want a change.
    Yes, it's not common and might be prettier to some people, but rather than think what you like the most, think how the people with the hair feels?
    I get super upset whenever someone tells me that me wanting to straight my hair is dumb because my hair is beautiful as it is.
    It might be, but I would love to, ya know? Have a change of pace for once.

    I have naturally very tight curly hair (4c) I had straightening perm or relaxer. For as long as I can remember until I was 16. I had to cut my hair to grow back natural because I started to lose A LOT of hair.

    I would never hate on another person’s hair texture because it’s not something that most people can change, and I’m not saying that I don’t appreciate how shiny and nice their hair looks but their hair is so straight that it looks flat and to not have volume in your hair isn’t the most flattering in my opinion

    Totally disagree with you for people with wavy curly hair on the Last points you make on the video. Keratin 'perming' will not get your straight like this. Japanese perming will But you have to choose Japanese straightening and commit to that and not dye your hair as well. And cut your hair after the straightening treatment. Just like when you curly perm you have to do regrowth or grow out.

  • Geraldine Munguia

    My first time getting a keratin treatment was when I was 17, at first I had to do it every 4 months, but after that I have done it once a year and I’m really happy with it! I got mine on October of last year and I’m going back next week cause I need it so bad haha, but I love the silky feeling it left on my hair for so long

    I spent like my last 8 years doing the japanese hair treatment to me. Because I always HATE my natural hair, I have a very VERY strong hair and is so curly like it's get afro lol. I mean, I don't hate afro hair or curly hair, is just that I have a lot of issues, like actually health issues because all the hair I have, and omg I was desesperated, when I first get the japanese hair treatment, OMG it was the best thing I ever done. But try to do the keratin one is way too weak for my hair!! my hair is extremely very STRONG!! So I keep doing it the japanese one through the years (sorry for my english!)

    I’m always 15 minutes early or exactly on time and that’s because I had a theater teacher in high school who had a phrase that always resonated with me. 15 minutes early and you’re on time, on time you’re late, 15 minutes late don’t even bother showing up. It’s about respecting other people’s time and their profession.

  • Itzel Olivera

    I don’t like it either because it looks good only on some people and at the end when your hair grows out, if you get it permed in a Mexican solan you have to wait hours under heat and then simply same as these videos and you can’t wash it for a couple of days. Yeah I definitely love my natural wavy/curly hair.
