chemically straight

Postby charlimc » Fri Sep 21, 2007 4:28 pm

Has anyone ever got their hair chemically / permanently straightened???

Majority of ppl who get it done are those gals with curly hair, my hair is in between... kinky hair.. i just find that if i dnt straighten it it just looks a mess.. so i was thinking about getting it permanently done so i dnt have to worry about straightening my hair alll the time.

yeah my friend has - she has really frizzy curls usually and she got it professionally done once. took hours but the result was outstanding. she looked so hot! however it didnt last forever and after a few months went frizzy again.

Yeah I know someone that has it done, it cost her $800 initially and then like $100 every couple of months or something, because as your hair grows, the new hair isnt straight - so with ppl with really curly/frizzy hair like my friend the regrowth is frizzy and the rest straight.

She still has to straighten it now and again, but the chemical straightening is a very drastic straight look. Her hair was very thick and frizzy but after being chemically straighten it looked VERY thin! So be prepared! And she had thick hair to start with! Hope this helps a little, lol.

I have really curly hair and have always talked about getting this done - one thing my mum said has always stuck in my mind - she said that people pay huge money to have curly/wavy hair and you have the best of both worlds - Myself? I would invest in a great straightener like GHD, use some great shampoo, Conditioner and straightening balm - at the mo I use Loreal Expert series... and do it yourself - far better for your hair and if you ever decided one time you want it to be wavy - you can.

hey carmen everyone says that to me too. my hair is naturally curly and people pay for that to be done! so i straighten my hair. i have decided to grow it long again and will get another spiral perm done. i had one done 10 years ago and i loved it. gave more emphasis to my curls and i am up for a new straightener so i would rather get a perm instead :P

There is a new GHD coming out. Actually, it came out on Friday! I completely recommend it. And generally it comes with free gifts! My friend bought it and got a free silk carry bag and a protection bag also - so that it doesn't scratch anything.

in terms of time - well, I have a wet/dry one and it takes me ages - my haridressers drys off my hair with a blow dryer, mostly dry, then goes over each section once with the GHD - and perfectly straight...they are awesome - if fact I just bid on one just then on eBay - look there first - they are much cheaper than in the store - I was wacthing one last night with its full 2 year warranty and it went for $180 which is just over half the price my hairdresser is selling it for...

Get a stefan straightner. They are half the price and EXACTLY the same as the GHD's. I bought one not long ago and highly recommend them :D
