Are you looking for a springtime hairstyle change, to give you a super cool new look. Do you want to trade your curls or frizz for sleek shiny straight hair? Stylists at Hier and Haines salon, McLean VA, share tips for selecting the best way to relax your hair.
There are different options for straightening hair. Some are more permanent than others. Your hair stylist is your best adviser in determining which option is best for you. Two factors to consider are the texture of your hair and your lifestyle.
You are sure that straight hair is the “new you.”
You want a way to relax and straighten your kinky or curly, hard-to-manage hair that will last a long time or until your hair grows out. Thermal Reconditioning, which works best with bulky, loose to medium curls, is a good option. It is a permanent straightener, needing touch-up only once or twice a year. All Thermal Reconditioning treatments must be preceded by a consultation to determine that the hair is in healthy enough condition to benefit (and not be stressed) from the procedures.
You want to try the straight hair look for a few months.
Keratin Protein treatments are good for up to 4 months. They smooth the surface of the hair but don’t permanently break bonds, so your natural texture gradually returns. You’ll still need to blow-dry hair straight, but it will take less time. At Hier and Haines in McLean, keratin protein treatments are done with Nano Complex which is completely free of formaldehyde.
Brazilian Blowout smoothing treatment works on every hair type, and will last for 10-12 weeks if the recommended after-care product line is used. You will still have the option to wear curly hairstyles and you will be able to blow dry your hair straight in a fraction of the time. The Brazilian Blowout is a cumulative treatment. The more often you receive it, the healthier the hair will be and the longer the result will last.
You like to switch between curls and straight for the occasion.
The no-cut, no-color professional blow dry service is quickly growing in popularity as salons across the country offer the simple approach to hairstyling. Unlike the Brazilian Blowout, the formula of shampoo, blow dry and style offers women a quick, affordable fix for weary hairstyles.
You can blow dry at home any time you want. With the right tools, products and techniques, a DIY blow dry straightening is just the right option. Substitute a diffuser for your regular blow dryer. Add natural and organic deep conditioning and styling products to your regular hair care routine. And when you come in for your next appointment ask your Hier and Haines stylist for tips.
