depends on the texture, hair type, thickness and how strong your hair is as it does dry it out a good bit.....but go to your local salon that does it and they will be able to advise you more...but i do think personally its a hell of a lot better than straightening it every day xoxo

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

theres this thing called yukos system i think which *apparently* straightens your hair permanantly without the use of chemicals.
my friend had it done wen she went hong kong but seeing as her hair is perfectly straight already im not sure exactly how effective it was :confused:

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!

Someone in my year had her hair chemically starightened and frankly it just looked really fake and in really bad condition, it looked really dry. I would rather just straighten it everyday tbh.

Yay, we have a fashion and beauty sub-forum now!

Hmmmmmmm i was considering having mine done, but im not sure. Surely if you put product on it after youve washed it and stuff it shouldnt be too bad? its just such a hassle straightening it every day and with my hair (trust me!) i need to. I dont tend to do it dead straight though, just make it so it has the odd wave in it.

Where can you get this done, how much is it and how long does it last? cheers! x

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.

How much is "quite expensive." At tony and guy's its £200+. I would NEVER pay that much for my hair!

I had it done at Saks. I had a cut as well, and it cost about £90 with student discount.

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.
