Straightened hair - Source Google Images

















Am a Straight hair lover, Mine is already a straight hair , so to give a neat look to my hair I Rebonded my hair 3 years ago & straightend my hair  1 year ago
Rebonding:
It is a process where the parlour people will load your hair with full of chemicals , wash your hair and start the straightening process.
The above steps are repeated for five to six times to make your look straight & Sleek.
Straightening :
It involves the same step but they wont do it for five times, Only twice the chemicals are used and a Straightening is done.
My Straightened Hair
 People who has never done straightening before has to first go for rebonding then later a year they can opt for straightening.
Basics of the straightened hair
  • We are not allowed to shampoo our hair the day after three days from the date of hair straightened.
  • We should not tie or use clips in our hair.
 Usually parlor people will advise us to use the products which was prescribed by them, but I wont follow their advise bcoz it is merely to sell their parlor products.
In my parlor where I did the straightening they gave me Matrix Opti care products which has to be used only in salon by professional .It also carried a word “To be sold Only in professional salons”.
I rebonded my hair on 2011 Jan, and till October 2011 I was using parlor products, I couldn’t find any hair re-growth in my hair. So I was thought of changing the shampoo .I tried Herbal Essence Dangerously straight which is meant for straightened hair.
Thanks to our blog-o-sphere - I started to use all other hair packs and other hair related nourishment products at that time.
Now I have waist length long Straight hair.
Things to avoid in your Straight hair.
  • Apply Oil only to your scalp and Don’t apply oil to your hair .If you want to do a deep oil condition then apply a egg mask. It will maintain the straight structure of the hair while leaving the hair soft.
  • Don’t Plait your hair, all your sleek straight look will shred away.
Hair mask for your Straight hair
 Never ever apply oil in your hair before using any of this pack, becoz it has to blend in hair your well .Applying oil in the hair will require more shampoo to remove it, by which all the goodness of the pack will be removed. However you can apply oil in your scalp.

Products am using for my Straightened hair-
-          Herbal Essence Dangerously straight
-          Biotique Watercress Conditioner
-          Matrix Opti Care Serum
-          Giovanni Straightening Elixir as a Heat Protectant Spray

If possible, if you have a Hair Straightening machine we can also do straightening touch ups by using any heat protectant spray, am using Giovanni Straightening Elixir.
Using Henna & Egg Mask in our hair will also make our hair to look more sleek and shine.
Please do share your the products your using for your straightened hair.
Do share your reviews.

  4. Thank you so much, and I've finally got the information I've been searching for!!
    But one query, is it really safe to apply henna and other packs for chemically straightened hair? I heard that they dry and make hair more frizzy. Could you please help me with this?

    I want my hair to be more thick and soft naturally. So, If it is really safe to apply henna on my chemically straightened hair then I'd be glad! And, I'm really not planning to straighten my hair ever again... I have heavy hair loss.

    Please, kindly do help me out. Thank you, and I really loved your article.
