    I tried perming it to straighten it when I was a kid. Didn't work! What are the best products for wavy/curly hair in your opinion?

    I wanted to straighten the hair in Japan... They checked my hair (thinner curly mess) and rejected my request :'( They explained to me that I should not do this... I still really want to do it at some point

    Rachel has a year after hair straightening video. I moved to Japan and my hair was so extra frizzy! So I’ve got it done 2x so far. I love it! Thanks for the video!

    I used to actually have pretty straight hair, until I got bangs on the side of my face and it went all wavy, just the bangs and the rest of my hair was still straight. That was until I got a bob cut since my bangs had grown long enough for me to cut into a bob, and after that, my hair has been wavy ever since. Yes, it is easy to manage but I just wish I could have my straight hair back ! 😭😭 I’m planning to get permanent straightening when I go to Japan, but I feel like my hair is wavy when it’s short and not when it’s long, but I’ll have to wait a while for it to grow back

    I was listening to Brad talking about Brazilian vs Japanese straightening treatments and I wanted to mention my experience. I have really really thin hair fibers (I have a lot of hair tho) and it's a 3A mixed with a 2C kind of wavy that turns into a mess easily. So, I get the Brazilian treatment from time to time and as my hair is too thin it actually makes my curls more structured instead of straightening them, I believe it's probably because it adds keratin and I love it ♥️

    I used to get my hair Japanese straightened. we used Rusk thermal str8 and after quite a bit of trial and error we found the perfect method but that grow out period was rough cause I needed to have at least 4” of new growth 😭😭

    What would you suggest for someone with thick auburn naturally curly virgin hair that is always frizzy? She does not want any processing but would love not to have any frizz. We air dry and only shampoo and condition once a week. She has to brush every day or it gets way too knotted just overnight. Plz suggest an expensive and cheap solution if possible.

    We did try to do a straightening treatment on my daughter's hair and it FRIED the ends of her hair so bad. I took her to a different stylist who understands how to work with her hair. He said that was the WORST thing I could've done. He had to cut off all the fried hair, which was about 5 inches! He then did a ton of moisturizing treatments and lots of blow drying between. She now embraces her natural spirals.

    Omg this was totally an early 2000’s trend. All of my fellow Korean girl friends had “magic” straightening perms because they wanted to look like BoA. Surprised folks are still getting it done in 2020 😮 #throwback

    I did this in grade 7, I regretted it afterwards. My mom paid for it and it took 4 hours in the salon. My hair is naturally curly (2c-3a texture) and while it looked amazing when I did it, but as it grew out my curls grew back at my roots and it looked HORRIBLE. Took years to grow out.

    At 0:22 you say that you've never done japanese straightening on someone, but at 8:00 you say that you stopped doing them. How can you stop doing something you've never tried before? Something seems dishonest.

    Hey, Brad. I have depression, which makes it difficult to do basic things like getting out of bed, showering, doing the dishes, etc. I also live alone, so I don’t have someone to talk to while I’m doing those things. Your videos give me a kind and uplifting voice to listen to while I work through my shit. Thank you for being here for us.

    Japanese hair permanent straightening in our country is called Hair Rebonding and it is the number 1 hair treatment filipinos do. Whenever the month of December comes a lot of women have this treatment as young as 14 yrs old.

    I have had the treatment of the red head done multiple times, I LOVE IT. My hair is far healthier after the treatment. I have extremely curly and thick hair. Only con is it takes 8+ hrs and $600 - $800. My hair grows very fast but since it’s so thick and heavy I only need to get roots done every 6 months and it’s half the price.

    Another reason Rachael did it was because she is a Caucasian in a very hot and humid country. Her hair is not meant to be in that climate and literally every video of her's had her beautiful (natural copper hair) frizzy, like really bad. This was 100% needed

    Had a straight perm when I was in highschool and I loved it, my hair was also dyed from the peekaboo blonde style trend lmao BUT it left my hair shiny and pinned straight. I’m asian but my hair texture isn’t the typical asian hair, I hardly every had to brush or fix my hair.. the only thing that I hate about the process is that I can’t lay on my head or tie or wash my hair for 3 days bc of the chemicals to avoid dents and unwanted texture
