Straight Irons Galore:

Here are some tips on how to straighten hair at home with a straight iron!

hair straightening treatment at home
  • Buy a straightener for your hair length and make sure it is of the ceramic kind – it will burn your hands otherwise
  • Use a heat protector spray to prevent heat damage – Sunsilk Keratinology spray is easily available in the market
  • Start from the back and section your hair, the more sections you make, the easier you will find it to straighten.
  • Do not overheat the plates, pick the temperature wisely.
  • Once done, use a serum to keep the frizz away.

Permanent hair Straightening:

Permanent straightening is a difficult and delicate process to do at home; a person who is confident and determined enough can manage though.

  • Permanent straightening works chemically, the product breaks the bonds between the keratin molecules.
  • Choose an appropriate home kit and follow the instructions well.
  • If the frizzy texture still exists, then further styling is necessary.
  • If you use other chemicals on your hair, like hair colour, be very careful. Do a strand test and be safe when using chemicals.

    Should I go for Permanent straightening at home?

    • http://www.stylecraze.com/members/nishasingh/ Nisha Singh

      It is really up to you. I personally wouldn’t go for it without doing as much research as possible. It’s a very delicate procedure, so it really depends on the individual doing it.

      • http://www.stylecraze.com/members/aneeshasingh/ Aneesha

        Thanks. The procedure is very expensive at my local Naturals saloon. Costs upwards of Rs.5K.

          I have seen some one less experienced do it for 8k…totally ruined my friends hair…I’d advise you to get it done professionally…even if you have to pay 10k

          • http://www.stylecraze.com/members/nishasingh/ Nisha Singh

            I will have to agree with Shalini here. Save up and get it done professionally. I love the flat iron the best, no permanent damage and I can change the style whenever I feel like. Permanent straightening isn’t always a happy experience in the salon so doing it yourself might make the damage even worse than what the salon would do. :(

    Banana definitely does magic on the hair and skin as well. Applying banana to the hair makes it straight leaving a great shine to the hair. Get your hands on some mashed banana next time for straight hair.

  • Bhoomi

    keeping the hair protected from the heat and hydrated is important when straightening it. I recommend the pro naturals hair repair mask because it moisturizes the hair really thoroughly!

  • Arun

    only banana or shud add sumthng to it

  • feroza

    I recommend not to get chemical straightening or rebounding done.. Cz it stays good only for 6-8 months..then ud have to get touch up regulerly which only damages the hait else your hair starts to outgrow the treated hair.. N this growth is brittle n frizzier then before..it looks horrid when u have half n half of both

  • deepika

    hi! can u give the clear description of coconut and lemon one how to use and how to prepare plz

    • http://www.stylecraze.com/ StyleCraze

      Hi Deepika, for coconut cream and lemon hair mask..you can purchase a packet of coconut cream from a store. Coconut cream can be found in any supermarket or grocery store or you can make coconut cream at home by slicing fresh pieces of coconut and putting them in a blender. Extract coconut milk out of it and put this milk in a fridge for a couple of hour. After a while you will see a thick layer of cream formed on top of coconut milk. Take this cream and mix it with some lemon juice. this way your coconut cream and lemon mask is ready to apply. Hope you find these tips to be useful !!
