Are you ready to trade your natural curls and beachy waves for a sleeker look this fall? The options for smoothing and straightening give you choices. Stylists at Hier and Haines salon, McLean VA, have the low-down on how to decide the best way to soothe your hair.
Not all hair straightening techniques are the same. Some are more permanent than others. Two other factors to consider are the texture of your hair and your lifestyle.
Are you looking for a long term solution?
You know that straight hair is your look and you want it to last until your hair grows out. Consider Thermal Reconditioning, which works best with bulky, loose to medium curls. It is a permanent straightener, needing touch-up only once or twice a year. All Thermal Reconditioning treatments must be preceded by a consultation about the hair straightening. In McLean, VA, Hier and Haines stylists want to determine that the hair is healthy enough to benefit (and not be stressed) from the treatment.
Do you like to change with the seasons?
Fall is a great time for straight hair, but you will be seeking a new look for the winter. Keratin Protein treatments are good for up to four 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 your hair straight, but it will take less time.
Brazilian Blowout smoothing treatment works on every hair type and will last for 10-12 weeks if your use the recommended after-care product line.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.
What if you like your curls but want to change up your look on 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 quick and affordable blow dry service lets you try out a sleek and straight look for any special event or occasion.
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 and finish with a flat iron. Add natural and organic deep conditioning and styling products to your hair care routine. And when you come in for your next appointment ask your Hier and Haines stylist for tips.
