Whenever there is a mention of Japanese women, we all tend to think of someone having fair and clear skin and long beautiful shiny hair. This is the ideal image of a Japanese woman, no matter what their age is. Even in the most humid summers, Japanese women manage to tame their hair.

The Japanese have always been known for their gorgeous and healthy skin and hair. But the question arises is that how do they manage to look so natural and perfect all the time?

Fortunately, after some research on Japanese hair care trends, we managed to find out a few Japanese beauty secrets that are now out in the open. There are a few interesting Japanese beauty secrets for those of you who admire their looks, especially hair. These you can try out for you and can get rid of many hair problems. These are easy to follow and the results are quite similar.

Here we are sharing some of the Japanese hair care tips that will give you shiny, beautiful and healthy hair just like Japanese people:

Keep Brushing!

Keep Brushing

Instead of brushing their hair once, Japanese women brush several times a day! By combing your hair appropriately, it helps in distributing hair’s natural oils to the rest of your hair. Japanese women don’t just use any brush to comb their hair but the Japanese tsuge wood combs. These combs are polished tooth by tooth and are handmade from tsuge (boxwood) which is one of the densest, hardest and densest types of wood. These combs also give the hair a glossy luster, help to distribute oils and because they’re not made out of plastic or metal you can say goodbye to stagnant frizzy hair during dry winters.

Maintain A Traditional Balanced Diet

Maintain A Traditional Balanced Diet

People in spite of knowing the fact that diet plays a big role in keeping our hair and skin in better and healthy condition, they mostly forget that what we put inside our bodies is directly associated with how we look on the outside. A traditional Japanese meal usually includes- one soup with three vegetable dishes along with rice and fish, which makes sure to provide a good balance. These spreads are high in omega-3 fatty acids and rich in vitamins that help reduce the body’s production of toxins that can cause premature aging and inflammatory skin conditions.

Kelp (kaiso) and Seaweed (wakame ) are found in almost every Japanese dish and are highly rich in keratin and iodine, which are both highly necessary for healthy skin, nails and glossy elastic hair. Fish is rich in protein and lower in fat as compared to red meat, while small portions of a variety of vegetables will supply much-needed vitamins and minerals. Japan is also known to produce a number of superfoods such as kinako, konjac, and natto. These are easily available and cheap in comparison to other superfoods in other countries.

Camellia Oil

Camellia Oil

Most of the time, Japanese skin and hair care include oils; the most popular one is camellia oil and is a part of traditional Japanese hair care. Camellia oil is often incorporated in Japanese hair shampoos and conditioners but women also apply pure camellia oil directly to wet hair to seal the natural moisture and keep the hair hydrated. Camellia oil prevents split ends, repairs the hair and you will notice that it’s a lot easier to untangle your hair after applying this oil. Argan oil became popular, a few years back in many western countries but you should definitely give camellia oil a try as well.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C

The Japanese are known for incorporating Vitamin C in their everyday life. Their daily diet consists of oranges that break up melanin and deoxidize. This is the secret behind their even and fair complexion. It helps remove any pigmentation marks and gives you an even skin tone. We often relate vitamin C with our ability to fight colds but hardly ever consider the fact that it works its magic by enhances our natural collagen supply, as well as retaining bone density and overall health. It also helps breakdown and deoxidizes melanin, the natural pigmentation we get in our skin from aging or tanning.

It’s the gleaming vitamin that brightens things up and helps give you natural and glowing skin. Japanese women frequently take vitamin C through food, drinks, supplements, vegetables and fruit, and cosmetic products as well. In fact, there are some Japan-only fruit and vegetables, such as shiso, which is a type of wild basil, the citrusy yuzu, and kaki- Japanese persimmon, which are all enormously rich in the miracle vitamin. You can find these products at any drugstore in supplement forms, while vitamin C-rich products for example broccoli, acerola, yuzu, parsley, kaki, kiwi, bell pepper and goya are available at any market in your locality.

Use Green Tea for Various Purposes

Use Green Tea for Various Purposes

Green tea is an important part of the Japanese lifestyle and is highly rich in antibacterial, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Japanese women have also included green tea in their beauty routines — from adding ground leaves to bath salts to including the extracts in various lotions and tonics and even adding concentrated powders to hair masks and body compress treatments. Matcha, which is the ground form of green tea leaves, is known for its high concentration of catechin polyphenols, which have limitless health and beauty benefits. Tannins have high concentration also helps to tighten the skin. Green tea powder can fight the damage caused by UV rays, reduce inflammation, especially with acne-prone skin, reactivate dying skin cells and help balance skin tone.

Wash Your Hair Every Day.

Wash Your Hair Every Day

It might not apply to the girls living in various countries of the world, but for Japanese people, the idea of not washing the hair every day is sickening and not appropriate.

Japanese women are very particular about their hair, and not hair but the scalp as well. As they take their scalp as being the same skin as the face, so they do not go to work or meet friends without washing their hair. Regularly washed hair doesn’t associate with damaged hair in Japan. Also, they have the habit to use hairdryers all the time. They don’t leave their scalp damp, as you might never know what bacteria grow in the damp environment. Not only this, but it can cause irritation and odor.

Less is More

Less is More

You should use mild shampoos and hair conditioners that contain natural ingredients like persimmon, seaweed and camellia work great for our hair. In view of the fact that many Japanese bathe and wash their hair daily, it’s essential that they take well care of it. Modern-day shampoos mostly have ingredients that strip the hair of its natural oils, for example, sulfates.

I am honestly thankful to Advanced Hair Studios. I suffer from a hair-pulling disorder. There is this constant urge to pull off your hair follicles. It is painless when you pull but extremely painful when you see a missing patch on your scalp. But, I feel blessed with AHS hair fall treatment. I can see baby hair growing. It’s been two weeks. All I can see is low hair fall.

I have done my hair transplant surgery in AHS Delhi Branch on 2019 by travelling to Delhi from Dhaka, Bangladesh. The front and the back portion of my head were bald and through the hair transplant surgery, they have managed to cover the front portion of my head and the former appearance of my face returned back. The way they collected hairs from the donor portion did not affect my donor area at all. I am quite happy with my result. I have been consulting with them for a second seating so that they can cover the back portion of my head as well so that the hair density on top will increase and the bald portion of my head will reduce to a minimum level.
