Do you use a straightening iron every day to tame your hair? Many of us do. If you fit into this category, you might want to think about asking for a hair straightening treatment in the hair dressers. A straightening treatment can leave you with sleek, straight hair that can cut back or even eliminate the need to use the manual straighteners.
If you’re unsure as to whether you should opt for a straightening treatment, have a chat with your hairdresser or stylist about the look you’re going for. They should be able to assess whether the treatment would be a good idea for you.
There are many chemicals in straightening treatments, so applying one to pre dyed hair that is already brittle and a little bit damaged might not be the best idea. Additionally, there are a lot of different straightening formulations, so the professionals should be able recommend the right one for you and your hair type.
During the treatment, your stylist will apply a solution that breaks down the bonds in your hair that create frizz and curls. Then they will rinse it out and protect your hair from over processing using a neutraliser. This will stop the chemical action and start making your hair straight.
Your hair will be weak after the treatment and in need of conditioner. Be sure to use one after every shampoo and treat your hair to a deep conditioner once a week. Ensure you thoroughly rinse out shampoo and any styling products as these could take the shine off your hair, making it look dull and listless.
