It is a process where the parlour people will load your hair with full of chemicals , wash your hair and start the straightening process.
The above steps are repeated for five to six times to make your look straight & Sleek.
It involves the same step but they wont do it for five times, Only twice the chemicals are used and a Straightening is done.
People who has never done straightening before has to first go for rebonding then later a year they can opt for straightening.

Basics of the straightened hair
- We are not allowed to shampoo our hair the day after three days from the date of hair straightened.
- We should not tie or use clips in our hair.
Usually parlor people will advise us to use the products which was prescribed by them, but I wont follow their advise bcoz it is merely to sell their parlor products.
In my parlor where I did the straightening they gave me Matrix Opti care products which has to be used only in salon by professional .It also carried a word “To be sold Only in professional salons”.
I rebonded my hair on 2011 Jan, and till October 2011 I was using parlor products, I couldn’t find any hair re-growth in my hair. So I was thought of changing the shampoo .I tried Herbal Essence Dangerously straight which is meant for straightened hair.
Thanks to our blog-o-sphere - I started to use all other hair packs and other hair related nourishment products at that time.
Now I have waist length long Straight hair.
Things to avoid in your Straight hair.
- Apply Oil only to your scalp and Don’t apply oil to your hair .If you want to do a deep oil condition then apply a egg mask. It will maintain the straight structure of the hair while leaving the hair soft.
- Don’t Plait your hair, all your sleek straight look will shred away.
Hair mask for your Straight hair
- Henna HairPack
- Egg WhiteHair pack
- Mayonnaise Hair pack
- Bio MuskRoot Pack
- Egg+Curd+Olive Oil pack for smooth hair.
- Shikkai+Reetha Pack
Never ever apply oil in your hair before using any of this pack, becoz it has to blend in hair your well .Applying oil in the hair will require more shampoo to remove it, by which all the goodness of the pack will be removed. However you can apply oil in your scalp.
