colored girls with japanese straightening

Posted by Yahya at 12:25 PM
There aren't many of us colored girls with Japanese straightened hair, but over the years I have bumped into a handful. There are those who have made their presence known to me because of my blog, and then there are those I happen to come across--usually on YouTube. 

Very recently I was just lurking around YouTube when I saw a familiar face and head of hair. If you follow Nadege from Relaxed Hair Health you might remember this face, too. Stunned by this girl's long and flawless hair, Nadege couldn't help but ask what the girl did to her hair to get it to be like that. This would be her first time hearing of the magical wonders of Japanese straightening. This is actually what led me into becoming a guest blogger on Relaxed Hair Health--to shed light on what Japanese Straightening really is. 

Well apparently this mystery girl actually had a YouTube channel. She goes by the name Gabbie and seems to be a well established make-up/ beauty guru. 

Now Megan Bowen, I've been subscribed to her channel for a while now. She is an English teacher in Korea and has her hair permed with Korean Magic Straight--which is essentially the same thing as a Japanese Straightening. The main difference is that Japanese straightening is better at straightening, giving you more of the pin straight look. Korean Magic Straight is beneficial if you're looking for more body. Megan introduces her straightened hair in the first video and gives a tour of the actual process in the second.

Lastly, we have Brittany from My Beauty Marc. She does a good job of properly explaining how Japanese straightening works and is one of the scarce Black girls with Japanese straightened hair I've come across that does her treatments at home. Brittany is always changing her hair up, however, so I am not sure if she is still a thio relaxed head.

Hey I love how healthy your hair looks and I am really considering doing the japanese straightening treatment. I literally just had a hair set back and I am just tired of traditional relaxers. I keep getting stuck at above shoulder so I like how you've said this is much healthier for the hair. My question is should I go to Hair IB for my first treatment or should I venture to Hair Talent in CT? Hair IB's prices are soo reasonable (literally to get my hair relaxed at this place I go to is double the price for Hair IBs treatment!! and for what! >__<") and Hair Talent's prices are a month's rent!! Im worried about the language barrier you mentioned. What do you recommend?

@evelyn, oh, the struggle, I know exactly what you mean and that's a very difficult question. > <
If your relaxed, I know it costs a lot, but I'd really recommend hair's talent the first time. Hair Ib is good, especially for the price, but they really don't understand lye relaxed hair and Afro hair in the way that's needed if you're transitioning from lye relaxers to jhs. The only other option I can think of is to go natural, then get your hair Japanese straightened at a Hair Ib.

I understand so if I go to Hairs Talent it would be like 600 dollars twice a year right? How often is necessary? Also, I am getting SO much push back from my current hair stylist. He's saying relaxers are the same and that this prcoess will lead to hair loss. I already have a relaxer and I can't control the tangling and the breakage I already experience. Not to mention, I have a very sensitive scalp that will break out after having a relaxer. All that stuff that help my scalp actually dries my hair so what drew me to JHS was the fact that people were applying it with bare hands and that there's no chemical burn associated with this process. That is correct right? I dont know. Can you tell me what hair type you have and what your life has been since getting the JHS? Is there anything you take extra care of? Are you worried about hair loss at all? I was feeling all geared up to do it but now my hair stylist has me discouraged. I really want to prove him wrong!

Hi! my hair is Japanese straightened and has been for over a year, and one thing I've been wondering is, how do you make your hair grow faster while straightened? When I braided my hair, it grew relatively fast-- but now its at a snail's pace.

Like, my hair is growing but at a very slow rate, and id love to have hair your length one day.

Any tips?

Hi I was wondering if the Mon Platin works well. And does it work on relaxed hair that hasn't been relaxed for 2 and a half months and has 1 and a half inches of new growth

Oh and can I get my hair with a cruelty free dye and get it done by a well known professional?

Your hair looks fabulous and I really reaaaally love the colour. I had red hair for about a year but because I'm a natural blonde, it faded incredibly quickly to an unflattering pale pinky-orange after just a couple of weeks.

I also can't wait to have it long again! I've never made it to waist-length but always had pretty long hair until 2016 when I cut it into a super-short pixie. Loved it but now can't wait to have long flowing lock again! :) xx
