Learn Three Ways To Get Straighter Hair

There are many women with wavy hair who want nothing more than to have straight, smooth hair. Straightening wavy hair with a hair straightener every day can be a bit irritating after a while because of how long it takes to do. There are a few options that are available that allow you to have the straight hair you want without having to deal with the hassle of using a hair straightener every day. The following guide walks you through a few options that will give you the straight hair you want.

Chemical Straightening

There are chemical relaxers that can be used on your hair to make it straighter. These relaxers come in varying strengths to ensure that the right strength can be used on your hair to ensure that the hair does not burn. If you attempted to use a relaxer on your hair and did not know what you were doing, you could cause significant damage to it. A chemical relaxer will last for quite a long time because it changes your hair at a chemical level and prevents the wave from occurring in your hair.

Blow Out

A blow out occurs when a hair stylist puts straightening serum on your hair and then uses a blow dryer and a special brush to straighten your hair. This straightening method only lasts until your hair gets wet. Once your hair is wet, it will turn wavy again. A blow out is often recommended for someone who has a special event to go to and wants their hair to be as straight as possible.

Thermal Reconditioning

Thermal reconditioning, often referred to as Japanese straightening lasts for quite a few months, depending on how often you wash your hair. A special solution is used to wash the hair to remove the waves from the hair. A stylist at your hair salon then dries the hair with a blow dryer and uses a hair straightener to iron the hair carefully. He or she makes sure that every centimeter of hair is as straight as possible. When finished, you will not be able to wash your hair for a few days to give the solution time to set. For the next few months, your hair will be perfectly straight, sleek, and beautiful.

There is no hair straightening process that will make your hair straight permanently though. As your hair grows, the roots will be wavy so you will need to get your hair touched up from time to time. The sleek hair you want is possible though. A hair stylist can help you determine which option is best for your hair type and budget.
