Chemical or permanent hair straightening can be a great option for those who want smooth, sleek, and straight hair. It can save lots of time by not having to straighten your hair every day. The process generally lasts for several months until your hair grows.

Of course, with any hair treatments, there can be pros and cons.

Pros of chemical hair straightening

If you are looking for a way to make your hair less frizzy and smooth right out of the shower, this is a great way to do so. There are different types of treatments, and you can either get it done at the salon or at home. Be sure to ask a professional which treatment is best for you, based on your hair type and desired results.

The treatment can last for months or even a year. It could also help to change the way your hair grows, making it more manageable. It could reduce the amount of frizz you have as well.

Cons of chemical hair straightening

With any chemical treatment, a big con is that it can damage your hair. You could experience breakage, split ends, and even hair loss. Depending on the process, you could also be exposed to harmful chemicals. If your hair is already very damaged, you may want to wait until your hair is healthier to try this treatment.

You are also stuck with straight hair. For a while, you shouldn’t curl your hair or even dye it. If you enjoy changing up your hair often, this may not be for you.

If you are interested in getting your hair chemically straightened, ask your hair stylist which treatment is right for you. They can go over the process with you, the results, after-care, and pricing.
