How to Get Beautiful Straight Hair

It is most women’s desire for silky straight hair. Straight hair that shines is sexy, beautiful and alluring.

With the advancements of hair straightening technology, whether your hair is wavy, frizzy, curly or even afro, you can have it straightened within a few hours.

If you want the sleek shiny straight hair look? Here are some very effective hair straightening methods to make you look beautiful.


 

The Conventional Blow Dry

This works well for those with wavy or curly hair. After a shampoo and wash, the hair is pulled over with a curler brush and dried with hot air. This method is great as it allows the hair dresser to control the volume of hair, and smooth it without making it flat straight. It gives you the ability to apply depth to your look.

Natural Hair Straightening Products
Hot oil treatments, coconut milk and mil and honey have proven hair straightening results. However, results are slow and not readily visible. Again these natural products only work for light wavy hair.

Silicone Creams

Silicone creams have been developed to help women straighten their tresses without heat. These creams work for all hair types and don’t alter the structure of the hair cuticle. As a result, your tresses won’t be damaged if you choose this option. Comb the hair straight and you’ll have the sleek hair you always wanted. The effects of the straightening will normally last until you decide to wash your hair.

Flat Irons
There are so many types of flat irons. Don’t waste your money on the cheap stuff. A proper professional flat iron can range from $300 – $1000. But it’s well worth the beauty investment.  It is simple to use consisting of two metal or ceramic plates and by pulling it through the hair any woman can get a great look in no time.

The downside to using flat irons is the potential hair cuticle damage and cracks it can cause. To lessen the hair torture, you can use a thermal protection spray product prior to ironing to reduce the hair cracking effect.

Brazilian Hair Straightening

This method has gained a lot of popularity at first, due to the fact it uses a crystalized form of the protein keratin and was thought to be beneficial for hair as it provided a silky sheen. However, the high content of  formaldehyde contained in the formula made this product a health hazard. Results often last for 3 – 6 months if done professionally.

Chemical Hair Straightening Relaxer

Reserved only for the extremely frizzy and afro hair type. This method is the ultimate hair straightening treatment, yet the most damaging.

The caustic chemical used to straighten the hair is ultra irritating, so going to a professional salon for the treatment is advisable. Nonetheless, the hair is usually left dry and brittle and restoring its health is very difficult. The hair damage is very significant, as the process breaks apart the protein bonds from the hair. This method is not necessary if you have wavy or light frizzy hair.

In case if you’re wondering, does African Americans like Rihanna and Beyonce or Tyra Banks get their hair straightened using this method?……The answer is YES and NO. They only get these treatments very rarely. If they were to treat their hair using this method on a weekly basis, their hair would be totally destroyed. They use something even more expensive called a Lace front or scallop front weave. It’s similar to a wig that is firmly secured to the head. One of these fancy wigs will cost you up to $2000.

I highly discourage the use of chemical hair straightening methods. It’s damaging to your hair and most importantly, it is hazardous to your health. If you are born with ultra thick frizzy hair, follow stars like Rihanna and Beyonce and just wear a wig instead.
