Have The Hair-Straightening Wars Reached Common Ground? featured image

Many of us curly-haired girls have epic tales to share of treatments tried, trialed, loved and regretted. Personally, I’ve done it all – Brazilian keratin treatments, Japanese thermal reconditioning and countless variants thereof.

Ultimately, though, the same issue becomes the focus-can we achieve the long-lasting results of the Japanese without sacrificing the comparative safety of the Brazilian?

At last, maybe we can. This week I learned about the Japzilian, a fusion of the coveted elements of Japanese and Brazilian straightening techniques, which is now exclusively available at the Joseph Martin Salon on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills.

The Japzilian system was designed by G-San, the salon’s straightening professional, when he saw the benefits of both Japanese and Brazilian methods.

The Japanese method is applied to achieve uniformity in texture, because hair is often curlier in the back and straighter in front or on top. This method is also ideal as it lasts five months longer than Brazilian straightening alone. Next, the Brazilian method is applied, and because of its deep conditioning keratin treatment, helps return the hair to a glossy, healthy condition.

The cost of the system is $500 (depending on length and density of hair) and requires a minimum of three hours. If it can truly achieve the longevity and textural reconditioning of the Japanese, with the shine and body of the Brazilian-I’m sold. What do you think? Would you be interested in trying something like this?
