Hi, Lisa! I have had both the Japanese and the Brazilian done on my hair.
Originally, I really appreciated the Japanese process because I could not stand the time it took for me to style my hair without it... UGGGHHH! But, I hated it because my highlighted hair ended up looking fried out and I had to color it darker to camouflage the split ends. It also was just BONE FLAT. I prefer to have a little movement in my hair. I don't like it that extremely STRAIGHT! It was okay, but I thought after it grew out that I wouldn't do it again because I didn't want to damage my hair any further and I liked having a little more body in my hair.
Therefore, I was reluctant to have the Brazilian treatment done. But my stylist was raving about it so much. Then I saw one of the girls he had done and her hair looked SO good! I also read up on the posts on this site from other girls. So, I took the plunge and all I can say is that I will never be able to live without it! My hair has never been shinier. It is not SO bone straight that it looks flat. It doesn't take me nearly as long to get ready. I just LOVE it so much!
If you are still not sure, I would call my stylist and he can tell you about how your hair would look. He was very good with me and my reluctance, but I can't tell you how happy I am that I did the Brazilian Straightener!
