Hair straightening involves the flattening and straightening of hair to give it a silky, smooth and of course straight appearance. Hair straightening typically involves heat from hair irons and combs, but there are also chemicals, shampoos, gels and various other methods to straighten hair.
Using heat for hair straightening such as with hair irons, combs and even hairdryers is typically only a temporary method of straightening hair that is normally performed before the hair is styled or as part of the styling process. For most people undertaking hair straightening, this is the most popular method, and many hair salons offer hair straightening and styling services.
Chemical straightening is often seen as a semi-permanent to permanent solution, and the effects and success of chemically straightening hair tends to differ between products. Straightening shampoos, conditioners and gels tend to have a shorter term straightening effect, but other chemicals are known to straighten the hair permanently. However, this does not normally apply to new hair that grows through.
