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 the rain cannot ruin it.

Author Shylah Simms ( ago)
she should have gone with the liscio treatment. It is way more effective even for African American hair types. she is even more blessed to be mixed.

I'm just seeing this! Girl the shopping bag is REAL! Hilarious but daaaaang your hair was long too. You keep talking about my hair! Yours was so long. I like both lengths on you though. 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?

I wish EVERYONE could chill about the race crap. She obviously has mixed ethnicities in her bloodline..can we leave it to that??? Why argue about someone else's bloodline..if she claims black then ok, if not then who the hell cares. Her hair looks good.

Yo fine ass

Author The lifeof Jonnelleoh TV ( ago)
do you monetize your videos?

Author love jones ( ago)
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.

Author Choi Haneul ( ago)
Is there any place that does this in Japan ? For African textured hair ?

Author Shalea Shaw ( ago)
Wow your hair is beautiful both ways so lovely!

Author ExoAmiK ( ago)

Author Sherwet Mhd ( ago)
Hi! Please make an update video! Does it dry out hair? Does it cause hair fall? does this treatment use chemicals? Also does it include ammonia? (I am allergic) :) thank you!

don't get weirded out by the name this is my brothers youtube... but you're so inspiring. you're a black girl like me living in korea and you picked up the language and everything and it seems that you're assimilating well. I'd love to do the same thing one day

Author Bonnie Vent ( ago)
this is so bad for your hair... in a few years you will see your hair thinning out..Trust

Author Hasana Guzmán ( ago)
Is it permanent?

Author Gloria Xu ( ago)
you look so so so good with bangs!! (and without them too! ;) )

Author Tsubaki hanazono ( ago)
I've been going through the comments but now I'm more confused than when I started. For one, I don't even know my hair type what is 2b or 3a? (just curious) and how does the korean magic work? I heard its permanent but in what way since you still blow it out after drying(?). And does it or does it not damage your hair because general census here says it does.

Author ms wasabi ( ago)
we are just crazy, love it.

Author Kany Touray ( ago)
is this like a relaxer? and is it chemicals?

Author Nikki 7 ( ago)
You said you don't "look black" but you do look Black! 😂 In fact, the ONLY reason I've been watching your videos for the last 30min is because I thought it was so cool to see a black girl living in Korea!

Author Dunlei 16 ( ago)
Just got your hair relaxed lmao.

Author Yandere Sama ( ago)
this actually made me consider getting that perm o-o

Author Yehet ( ago)
Will you need touch ups if your hair isnt curly?

Author jellybeanz ( ago)
Megan, have you heard of the Japanese magic straight perm?.How is it different from the Korean style magic straight perm?

Author Unicorn Tacos ( ago)
You look black, what are people saying.

Author Nia E. ( ago)
Girl you look black to me. You look like my auntie 😂😂😂

Author Bladian Latina Princess ( ago)
That has not shit to do with it . My cousin looks completely white . But her dad is dark skinned black . But her papers at the doctor say "African American" her hair feels like a white persom when straight . Same with my other cousin that is mixed with Colombian . I'm also black Asian /south Korean and Puerto Rican but people think I'm ALL black . Even though it's a nationality, my mother doesn't look black she looks Puerto Rican , Anyways y'all are ignorant lmao trying to "unblack" her
Anyways I don't feel like correcting my misspelled words. So I'm done with this ! Great video !

Author Jajajaja Pre ( ago)

Does this ruin your curl pattern? I wear my hair naturally but would like to try this and am curious if I would have to transition it after.

Author LifeAsWeKnowIt ( ago)

I wonder if it would work on my hair. I've never had a relaxer. My hair is just curly. But I'm scared of damage.

Author Rebecca Faris ( ago)
Ok I Have to subscribe - you are so funny and it is rare to find someone with a great sense of humor like you! Keep doing what you do - I enjoy it so much and it seriously made my day just to see this video and laugh out loud. Thank you!

Author PasswordFreak ( ago)
I know this is an old Video but I wanted to ask. after wearing your hair out all day (the times that you do) does your hair kind of tangled onto itself? like if you run your fingers through it after a few hours of it being out does your hand get caught. I've been considering switching to Korea straight perm, and was curious if your hair does that. or does it stay smooth to run yoru hands through it without risking breaking it.

Author Iemonnie Lovett ( ago)
I want to get this BUT I LOVVVEEE my curly hair so idk how I feel about it. .......

Author Lea Lee - healthyteame ( ago)
Anyone in the GTA or T.O Canada...go to the Pacific Mall!!..I've seen it there...I'm wondering if you can do it on Colour treated hair though...

Author cookiekk456 ( ago)
I'm surprised this technique isn't more well known in the african american communities. I know we're more into the natural movement right now (which is absolutely beautiful btw), but do you know how many people would have killed to have their hair look as good as yours does in this video? Black salons would have made some serious bank.

Author Sa Ra ( ago)
is this a boy?

Author VideosatTiffanys ( ago)
My God!!! <3 That legit looks like sorcery. How it looked just being air dried looked like your hair was naturally straight. I'm natural now because american relaxers would just give me a no curl afro look. If that makes sense. Like kinky straight but still poofy. So I was like I might as well have curly hair that doesn't look weird when I get out of a pool. But this looks AMAZING!

Author vanessa jv ( ago)
omg I need this I need this

Author Yoongi's Honey ( ago)
Is that all your real hair ? Its so long ! My friend is African-American and she said that their hair takes a super long time to grow.

Author Queen E-star7 ( ago)
It looks nice but I wish you kept your natural or wore your curls. You seem to look more and more Asian (or prefer the look) which is why people get confused not really because of your skin tone. Black features are beautiful too!

Author Akilah Neeley ( ago)
So i never gotten a perm before and I'm scared that if I get one my hair might fall out cause of chemicals. If I use the Magic Perm will my hair fall out?

Author Jimin Bangtan ( ago)
i think you look better without bangs

Author Ken Kaneke ( ago)
so, can u buy this product?

Author Patricia Oprea ( ago)
Omg you're so funny and bubbly i can't stop watching the vids haha

Author Ivory Stephenson ( ago)
Is the perm damaging to your hair though.. Because usually perms tend to do a lot of damage to African American hair. And when I move to Korea, I think it would be great to not have to worry about my hair. :)
