What makes Japanese hair products different from Korean hair products?
Korean products focus on answering immediate hair concerns and offer wow effects, whereas the Japanese philosophy is based on prevention and sustained results. Korean beauty follows the hottest trends of the moment, while Japanese beauty has its roots in long-lasting and proven rituals and traditions. Korean beauty embraces a faster pace, while Japanese beauty focuses on a slower-paced way of life, believing that breathing, contemplating, and mindfulness should be embraced.
