Hair ironing is the process of changing the shape of hair by heating it through hair straighteners. A curling or straightening iron can help give your hair the ideal texture for whatever look you’re going for.
Home hair straightening kits don’t often last longer than 6 weeks. Permanent hair straightening done in a salon lasts anywhere from 4 to 6 months.
The heat achieves its effect by altering the internal structure of the hair, primarily breaking down hydrogen bonds. One the damage is done, it takes letting the hair grow out to undo the process. While There is no direct connection between use of flat hair iron and hair loss.
Getting your hair ready for the straightening process isn’t necessarily easy, but the preparation is absolutely essential. Keep your hair in good shape and protect it.
Hair Straightening Techniques
A device used for straightening hair by pressing and puling sections between two heated metal for creamic, flat rectangular plates.
After the hair is dry, dividing it into 1 to 2 inch sections using clips or hairbands. Then, starting with one section of hair, placing the straightener as close to the scalp as possible without burning the head and using fluid motions to run the iron over the length of the hair, from roots to tips.
2. Chemical Straightening/ Hair Rebonding
Hair rebonding is a chemical process that changes the hair’s natural texture and creates a smooth straight style. It’s also called chemical straightening. However the hair structure depends on hair follicle’s shape, which cannot be changed by rebonding.
A typical hair rebonding will last up to 5 to 6 months. In order to maintain the right structure of the hair post rebonding, it is needed to get frequent touch-ups to keep the straightened locks intact after every 5-6 months depending on hair growth and volume.
