Posted in Hair Straightening

People who wish for smoothing out their unruly and frizzy hair should use hair straightening cream. There are fundamentally two types of straightening cream. They are chemical straightening products, and the temporary hair straightening creams. A chemical straightening product can keep your curly hair straight and frizz free for a period of more than a few months. Alternatively, temporary straightening products will work only for a single day, and then they have to be reapplied.

How to choose hair straightening cream?

When you go out shopping for a hair straightening cream, you should keep in mind your hair thickness, roughness, and amount of frizz that your hair have, and then accordingly choose a cream. If your hair have a slight wave or frizz, then you only need a simple hair straightening cream, which can be applied on daily basis, but for tight curls and severe frizz, chemical straightener will help.

Advantages and shortcomings of hair straightening cream

They are also known as hair relaxers, and have advantages and shortcomings at the same time. The chemical ones have a long lasting effect, but can lead to harm due to the strong chemicals use. Generally, it is recommended to have it done by a professional stylist. Thin hair is dry and more prone to damage after excessive use.

Using creams with chemicals calls for an elaborate procedure. It includes applying a petroleum based protective cream over the hair, then the relaxant is applied to smooth out the hair, and finally a moisturizing lotion to balance the PH of hair is used. Conditioning is also done to protect the hair. One method of reducing hair damage is only to use hair-straightening cream on the roots. Moreover, the chemical relaxants should not be used over previously straightened hair.
