Most women like having smooth and silky hair. Short or long, curly or straight—shiny hair always gives a good impression. People with naturally curly hair often find themselves battling with the flat iron in the morning and at night before going out. This can be quite frustrating and time-consuming. Long smooth, straight tresses is what dreams are made of for many girls and their quest for hair smoothening, can sometimes lead to abusing the heat tools & straightening iron. This is quite literally the worst thing you can do, the end result is often the same – split ends, frizzy hair, dry and parched look. What’s worse, you also end up with an overall lackluster appearance too and cause permanent damage.
The outer layer of healthy hair contains natural oil to keep it moist and shiny. When this layer is damaged, your hair will look dull, unhealthy and dry. This is where a hair smoothing treatment comes in. If you have frizzy, curly hair, going au naturale may put them outside of their comfort zone, thus their dependence on heat tools. The natural Keratin Based Technology of Hair smoothing treatments infuse hair with keratin, a naturally produced protein that is needed to keep hair healthy and shiny. Keratin fills in the ridges of the hair where it is brittle and cracked giving it a smooth appearance. A simple keratin treatment only has to be performed a few times a year and will literally change their lives. Keratin treatments also dramatically reduce your blow drying time.
Another benefit is that it is safe for color treated hair. In fact, hair smoothing treatments are a great way to seal in the color. They are Long Lasting and can last anywhere between two to three months depending on the hair type and how often hair is washed
How to do hair smoothening at home? There are many smoothening treatments available that you can do at home without having to go to a salon. You can do one using two mashed bananas in a bowl & add yogurt, honey, olive oil and make a paste. Apply it on your hair and cover using a shower cap. Leave it for an hour and then rinse the mask off using cold water. You can also use egg whites instead of yoghurt but if you find the smell too off putting, stick to the yoghurt. Basically, the objective is to get protein in there.
