Hair straightening is a hair styling technique that flattens out curls, waves, or loops in hair, giving it a sleek, smooth look. This can be done in a variety of ways including using heat (hot combs, brushes, rollers, or electric straighteners) or chemicals (usually called ‘relaxers’). Some shampoos, conditioners, or gels can also give you this look temporarily.
So, why straighten your hair? While it’s not universal, many people with hair that is naturally very curly sometimes want to try out not only a different look but different requirements for their hair. A lot of curls, waves, and loops can sometimes make hair easily tangled and difficult to manage.
Temporary straightening doesn’t use any chemical treatments and will give you an idea of what straight hair will be like for you, but it can also be easily reversed by simply getting your hair wet. Chemical straightening will offer you a more permanent break from your curls, but it won’t affect new hair growth, so if you really love your new look, you’ll have to come back and see us whenever your hair starts getting long enough to curl again.
