is: I keep hearing about this new hair straightening that
cost between $200 or $500.. I hear it's about $500.. I would
like to know more about it... Could you please send me more
info on it.
out our page in the V section under the sub title 'salon services
and chemical treatments'. The page on straightening contains
all the info we have. Armed with this info I then suggest you
consult a couple of different salons for a consultation to find
out the exact cost and the possibilities with your own hair.
Costs do increase with length of hair as more time and product
is needed. If cost is a big concern to you, you should also
consider up keep costs e.g. how often it needs doing and what
that works out to over a year.
been relaxing my hair since I was 10 years old, I am 17 now
and I decided to stop yet every time I go into a salon they
tell me it's necessary for me to have it relaxed. Is it really
physically checking out your hair can give you the answer you
seek. However 'having to have your hair relaxed' means to me
you are asking for a style that requires straighter hair than
you have. Why not see if you can find a style for your texture
is the 'straight perm' and 'retexturizing':
read an article in the newspaper about a new hair straightening
chemical. They called it 'straight perm' and 'retexturising'
and claimed it to actually be good for your hair. They did
not give an actual name for this new product and I was wondering
if you knew anything about it and if there was any information
you could give me. If you have never heard of this chemical
before I would be very happy to e-mail you the newspaper article,
just let me know. Thanks
are just other names used to describe relaxing or straightening
hair permanently. Differing terms for these services are cropping
up all the time at the moment because there has been quite a
revolution in the chemicals that are used meaning less damage
so better conditioned hair. The idea is to get you the consumer
to realise this and not to connect the old service of straightening
and relaxing which have got a bad name for damaging your hair.
Saying that there have been many updates to the products does
not mean that they won't harm your hair. So always get a test
strand done first and find a hairdresser that specialises in
there services. For all our information on straightening your
hair permanently consult the 'salon services and chemical treatments'
section of V.
safe to get fine hair that has been chemically treated (coloured
and curled) chemically straightened? I do not want to use
a straightening iron anymore!
hair in good condition is the most important thing as it can
only look good if you have condition no matter what style you
have. The basic rule to keeping good condition is to not do
chemical or heat processes on top of each other. A single application
of anything will not harm your hair but one thing over another
and another is where you will start to have problems. From what
you have said you have already done quite a lot to your hair,
so I advise extreme caution especially with fine hair, which
by nature is more prone to damage.
very thick and frizzy hair, not frizzy from the humidity,
but actual frizzy hair, from the roots. My mother assures
me that it will grow out, because she had hair the same and
her hair is still thick, but not frizzy. I looked in the styling
section but I can't find any hints for my hair. I want to
make an impression on my friends with my hair, but the only
style that looks any good is a plait. Please help!
straightener or perm if you would like to have curl rather
than straight hair is often the only answer for your type
of hair. This is because your 'frizz' is a type of curl which
needs reforming into a new shape. Your Mom may be right though
as you may find you will grow out of this stage like she did,
as its an inherited thing.
the subsection Salon services and Chemical treatments. There
are pages here on straighteners and perming and what is involved.
If you choose to do this you will need to watch the condition
as again your hair type is often prone to becoming out of
condition so leading to another type of frizz.
a bit of curl:
kind of Curly Kinky hair and I was wondering if there was
any way I could straighten my hair without it costing a fortune
and not one of those cheep things you buy in the stores. I
have never been able to wear my hair down so I would appreciate
it if you could help me! Thanks and have a great day
of us have a kink or small amount of curl that we don't want
and its all about learning how to deal with it. You can either
work out some styles with your hairdresser that your hair is
particularly suited to or you can get some blow-dry and styling
lessons from them. This is not as unusual a request as you may
think and a bit of know how and practice really will pay off
for the rest of your curly kinky life. The advent of ceramic
straighteners means that none of us have an excuse when it comes
to being able to straighten our own hair. Finally there is always
permanent chemical straightening to be considered.
really curly hair which fizzes a lot and I can't wear it down,
as it goes really big. And I don't have much to do with it
when it's up !!!. I have tried every fizz free products there
is but it still doesn't seem to work. I'm thinking of getting
it straightened, which will cost, but before I do that. I
need to know if it will work ???
it is possible to permanently straighten your hair. See our
pages in V, subsection salon services and chemical treatments
and then you will see the pages on straightening. A couple of
points to remember though. Chemical straightening swells individual
hairs slightly which can make it seem thicker, if its the curl
itself that bulks your hair up and not just its density it will
look less big though. Maintenance on straightened hair can get
expensive. A cheaper, yet very effective method for your hair
could be to invest in a pair of high quality ceramic irons.
Used well on fine sections of hair results can be very dramatic
at lessening bulk. This can however be very time consuming!
any shampoo and conditioner that automatically straightens
hair without the need for blow-drying, but still has the same
results of hair that has been blow-dried straight?
there are no miracles. There are however many shampoo and conditioners
especially designed for helping you get your hair straight.
KMS does a range called flat out which would be good for you
I think but you still have to do some work with the blow-dryer
