Straightening hair is a big fashion trend for 2014 to reinvent a person's looks but you need to explore safe options before you decide which method you choose to chemically straighten your hair.
Adhuna Bhabani Akhtar, celebrity hairstylist said that there are three basic ways to chemically straighten hair - by rebonding, smoothening or by keratin treatment, depending on how straight the hair is required to be.
According to Rod Anker, Creative Director of Monsoon Salon and Spa, keratin, relaxes the curls and frizziness of the hair - making it only appear to be straight.
He said that while super straight hair may look good, it becomes really harsh on hair strands.
Anker advises to opt for either rebonding or smoothening as the re-growth in rebonding is completely natural and in case of smoothening, while it won't make hair extremely straight, it looks more natural and does not damage hair as much.
