My boyfriend got it done. I haven't seen it yet. I think my boyfriend is a girl.
i prefer hair straightener, cause then i can have it curly one day and straight the next. also don't know what kind of chemicals they use and if it can be bad for your hair.
I am black and I have my hair chemically straightened and it looks good. It is just a question of maintenance (you should get it 'steamed' twice a month), etc.etc
yeh its fine until you start to grow roots so that the top is all curly and the bottom straight...weird. so basically once you have it done you have to keep doing it for the rest of your life. i say stick to curls at least you stand out and wont be a clone
Is there a difference between chemical and normal?
To be honest, hair straightening in any way is bad for your hair. I used to straighten my hair loads and my stylist ended up shouting at me because I was wrecking my hair! I had a restyle and due to the scruffy marni/geeky chic style I've got going on now, I don't need straighteners!
I had mine done, and it was great. It wasn't like really straight afterwards though, so I needed to use straighteners for special occasions. It didn't dry my hair out that much, but it was quite expensive.
Depends where you live, it seems. In my town, its upwards from £45.
Go in for a free consultation, and they can chop a bit of discreet hair off, and treat it to see how your hair reacts to it. I had it done, and good thing I did because it totally ruined my hair. It just depends what type of hair you have... mine is mixed race so apparently *nothing* works on it.
Also, apparently the treatment grows out so you have to get the roots done again as it grows- more expense.
