Flatten those waves for the look you want.
There’s an old adage that says people always want what they don’t have, and that’s certainly true when it comes to women and their hair. Women who are born with straight hair want curls. Women who are born with curls want straight hair. And with all of today’s styling processes, products and tools, women can often get exactly the style they want. Having looked at hair curling in another article, let’s look at the opposite – hair straightening.
Professional beauticians can use chemicals to straighten curly hair, but sadly, the process can damage hair, especially hair that is delicate or color. Some women use a brush and hand hair dryer to straighten their hair, which works, but can take hours if the hair is thick or unusually long.
Back in the 60’s women even straightened their hair themselves, using – of all things – a clothes iron. However, it was easy for the iron to overheat and damage the hair – many accidents led to women having to endure a short haircut until it grew back. Eventually the clothes iron gave way to a new beauty invention called the flat iron. It uses controlled heat and a safer delivery system to achieve the straight look that women want.
