    SALON: Family Hair Shop located in Itaewon.
    HELLO GUYS!!! SO!!!! Some people have been asking about my hair ever since I got the Magic perm! Im happy that it looks so good! LOL!! But I love this perm! I cant live without it now!
    I got it about 1 month ago at a hair salon called Family Hair shop located in itaewon. it costs about 200$ for my hair. After it grows out and the roots need to be touched up it will run between 40-60$.
    The process was quite long for me since I have African American/Black hair. The Korean perm is like the Japanese straightening and the thermal reconditioning treatments. They just wash your hair and then apply some solution to break the bonds. Then they wash and flat iron it and reform the bonds on the flat ironed hair. So it's also very similar to a curly perm except rods are not used, and instead the flat iron is used to create the desired hair shape.
    The main thing that I wanted to know before I got the perm was, will it dry pin straight with my hair texture?!? The answer is partially. Its straight enough that I can just wear it out. It can also be straightened by blowdrying with a round brush. Its very soft and shiny, and SOOO EASY TO MANAGE NOW!!
    Before it took me 2 hours or so to flat iron and blow dry my hair.. not its takes less than 30 minutes. Also, now I don't have to rely on heat tools to style it. I can braid it at night and have a heatless wave/curl in the morning. I am SUPER GRATEFUL FOR THAT!! BEcause heat tools used on a regular basis are damaging, and because they are so damaging and it takes too much time to do my hair, didn't straighten it that often. Now I can have straight and easy to manage hair every day.
    ALSO!! The rain is no longer my enemy! I AM GRATEFUL FOR THAT!! My hair is pretty much straight when it dries..so the rain cannot ruin it.

    Hi Megan, I'm a guy who relaxes his hair and I have two questions? Would it be safe to put the chemicals on mildly relaxed hair? Two, my hairline is very important to me, so do you think the chemicals will serious damage my hairline if the stylist leave it on my root for 20 mins?

    Her hair doesn't like 4c hair type, it looks more like 3a which would make a differences in how easy and straight her hair would be. I'm not biracial and I have 3b.

    I live in brazil and I straighten my hair with something that doesn’t damage it even tho I already bleach it (I have pink hair), and since I am planning on going to Korea next year and maybe not coming back I’ve worried a lot about how I will maintain my hair there. It needs retouch every 2 or 3 months and my hair is a MESS without it I need all the info

    Girl, this sounds terrifying to me. All of that blow drying and chemicals, and then repeating it, and then having it STUCK like that.......I'll just stick to my flat iron and continue avoiding the rain and humidity. Which is hard. Because I live in Houston.....which is basically swamp territory....so....very humid. :-|

    I really need this omg
    I'm black and white and my hair is very thick and curly and it's just very out of control when it's natural and I don't know how to deal with it so I always have my hair straight. I straighten my hair so much my hair probably has so much heat damage which isn't good
    :( sometimes I wish my hair was permanently straight because it's better to handle. Hopefully in America they have this one day because I would definitely get it and will make my life much easier.
    On the other hand though my family likes my curly hair especially my grandma and she wants to see me have curly hair but I always have it straight :/

      Teylor N I am not saying that she is beautiful only because she is mixed. honestly, I have a lot of mixed friends and some of them are not beautiful.

Is this similar to a relaxer? Like if I wanted my natural curly hair back I would have to do the big chop and let it grow out?

      Rine 문선영 no, the only reason it'll ever revert back to its natural state is that the person that gave you service didn't perm your hair properly. OR your roots are growing out, which you might want to re-touch up on if you want your hair to continue to be straight.

    when your hair is in natural state you looked like a regular lightskin. The straight hair you can tell you are biracial but it just looks like you took more of the Caucasian genes but you still look mixed.

    • Annie Evie
      Annie Evie 4 месяца назад

      "Its just genetics"... yeah because your race depends entirely on your genetics. I'm not trying to say shes not a black person (she is), shes just a biracial black person (actually multiracial because she is part Native American too). This is her racial identity which is difference from her cultural identity; I believe she culturally identifies fully as a black American. However if you're gonna say that genetics doesn't play a part at all in race, that makes it subjective meaning that neither of us can definitively say that she is biracial or that she isn't, because if it's subjective then it's up to her alone.

    • Jordana Palmer
      Jordana Palmer 4 месяца назад

      Annie Evie But she isn't though. Look at her family video when she returned home. You can't say she is 'biracial'. Most people classify biracial as having white passing family members, which she doesn't have. She just has a lighter skin tone from having europeans from her ancentry-which many black people have. Its just genetics.
