Hi Ladies- reaaaallly tempted to splurge on a japanese hair straightening treatment. I have curly/frizzy hair that I waste hours a week blow drying and straightening. I have done keratin treatments in the past, andwhile they did minimize the frizz, I still found myself needing to blow dry and iron my hair pretty regularly. My concern is that I would like an updo at my wedding (in April), and while I do not know exactly what style I want, I am concerned that the Japanese straightening might make my hair too brittle or rough to style? I am also concerned that perhaps it wont be able to hold a curl for an updo if thats the route I decide to go. So- can anyone weigh in? Should I just do the keratin treatment, since its not permanent and will have washed out before my wedding? Thanks in advance for any advice ladies!

Hmm that is a hard one bc everyones hair could react differently. I had the JSP done years ago and I loved it! But the only negative I can see here is that when it grows out there is a very clear difference in the treated hair and the untreated. By difference I mean curly to stick strait. My hair is only wavy and thick and I hated the line it was almost like permanent hat head kind of thing for me. So unless you plan on keeping it up I would just get the keratin.
To answer your question yes I was still able to hold a curl and my hair was pretty healthy after.

I get Yuko done 2x per year and love it. I’m half German half Native American and it makes my frizzy, many textured horse hair (my natural hair is like a horse’s tail) straight and soft. I can’t live without it (well, I could, but… You know… Lol)

Go with the keratin. It’s not permanent & will give you more options for your wedding day. Your stylist will make sure your hair is manageable that day if that’s a concern. Good luck!

I’ve gotten JSP 4-5 times in the past. I’ve got thick Asian hair that is semi wavy, semi frizz. The JSP is pretty amazing in that it makes your hair super shiny and stick straight, but I think it takes out a lot of volume as well, which is something you may want to think about for your wedding updo. My hair had no trouble holding a curl when I had JSP, and no problems with brittleness. I’ve never had a keratin before, but it seems like that is a good compromise if you are worried about the above factors.
