My hair has always been unmanageable. Its very curly but also very thin which is tough combination. ( You can see my hair pictures on Yoshiko’s Before&After page) I would spend hours every week trying to straighten it, always to be outdone by the slightest humidity in the air. When japanese straightening came out I was so excited, thinking this would be life changing. I went to a japanese salon in the west village that was not only highly recommended but very cheap. It seemed to good to be true and of course it was. There was definitely a reason why they were so much cheaper than fancier salons. I got my hair straightened about five times over the course of two years. Yes my hair was now straight but it was also dry, damaged, broken and falling out. I ended up having to cut it all off and spent the next year trying to get my hair back to normal. And let me tell you that was a miserable year!
So when I decided to try it again my friends and family thought I was crazy. But this time I spent a lot of time researching about the process and different salons. I found Yoshiko and knew I was in good hands when she spent twenty minutes on the phone with me listening to my concerns and addressing my past problems. While she was straightening my hair she explained every step and made me feel comfortable with the process.
Needless to say I love my hair. It looks healthy and shiny and best of all it actually has body. It doesn’t lay limp like it had before and it doesn’t break off when I brush it. I feel and look better and I get so many compliments. Everyone thinks I spend a ton of money on blow outs! My experience with Yoshiko was so positive from day one and I would recommend anyone who is thinking of straightening their hair to talk to her.
