Pros and Cons of Different Types of Hair Straightening

Want to switch up your hair game? Hair straightening treatments can be a great way to get sleek, smooth locks. From keratin treatments to Brazilian blowouts, there are plenty of different options you can choose from depending on the style and texture you're looking for. Learn more about the various hair straightening methods in this post!

Chemical Hair Straightening

Chemical hair straightening treatments work by breaking the bonds in your hair to permanently straighten it out. Common treatments include keratin, Brazilian blowouts and chemical relaxers. Each of these options offer different levels of results, which include anything from a mild wave pattern all the way to stick-straight hair, depending on what and how much product is used. The downside is that they can cause some damage to the structure of your hair, so talk to your stylist before committing to a treatment you're unfamiliar with.

Keratin Treatments and Brazilian Blowout

Keratin treatments and Brazilian blowouts are two of the most popular hair straightening treatments. Both of these processes involve using a keratin-based solution to temporarily alter the structure of the hair, which helps to reduce frizz and straighten curls. Keratin treatments generally last longer than Brazilian blowouts, but they also require more maintenance in terms of special shampoos and conditioners as well as periodic touch-ups. Additionally, both of these options are much less damaging to the hair than permanent chemical straightening, so they’re great for individuals who want to try a temporary change without permanently altering their locks.


Thermal Hair Straightening

Thermal hair straightening is a great option for those who don't want to commit to anything permanent. This type of straightening uses heat and a flat brush or comb to temporarily stretch and smooth the hair's cuticle, resulting in sleeker, softer locks. The advantage of this type of treatment is that it doesn't damage the hair structure like chemical treatments can. However, thermal straightening isn’t as effective at permanently controlling curly or frizzy hair as chemical treatments are.


Japanese Hair Straightening

Japanese hair straightening is a permanent chemical treatment for those with naturally curly or wavy hair. This process works by breaking the bonds that shape the curl and then reformulating the hair’s structure to create a smooth, silky look. While it does provide long-lasting results, this type of straightening does come with some possible disadvantages - for example, it is expensive and can take quite a bit of time. Additionally, because the process permanently alters the hair structure, it isn’t suitable for all types of hair.

Permanent Hair Straightening

Permanent hair straightening is a chemical process, involving intense heat and chemicals to relax the hair permanently. The result of this treatment is incredibly silky and straight hair that will remain lasting for months until new growth starts to come in. This process can be quite damaging to your locks, however, so it’s important to be aware of potential risks and side effects before getting permanent straightening done. Additionally, you should be sure you are getting the service done by a professional who knows how to use the correct products and techniques without causing further damage or irritation.
