The Latest and Greatest Hair Straightening Techniques

You’ve got mad curly hair but you really want straight sleek tresses.  We’ve all been there, right?  It always seems to be that we want we aren’t naturally given, and we spend our whole lives straightening, curling and coloring our hair.

Luckily for us all, there are now a wide variety of technologically superior techniques that we can use to keep out hair straight and shiny for days, weeks or even months on end.  If you are still sweating over a hot flat-iron, get bang up to date with this top 5 of the latest and very greatest innovations in hair straightening techniques.

  1. Japanese Straightening

By using a process also known as “thermal reconditioning,” Japanese straightening promises to turn wavy, coarse or curly hair into poker straight locks by treating the hair with chemicals which break the protein bonds in the hair that give it its shape. The treatment is sealed by using very special flat irons that are heated to a precise temperature that works with the chemical solution that has already been applied to the hair.

Designed to offer sleek, soft and supple hair that can be dried quickly, Japanese Straightening treatments should keep you frizz-free for between 6 – 9 months.

  1. Keratin Hair Straightening

Also known as Brazilian Straightening, Keratin straightening works by applying a keratin-based hair-straightening product to your hair, which is then sealed using a flat iron. The process takes about 90 minutes or longer and can last for around 2 months.  It is renowned for its ability to prevent frizz and can give you gorgeous straight locks that are quick to dry and feel soft and manageable.

  1. Cold Smoothing

If you want reduced curl, volume and frizz but are not in the market for dead straight hair, cold straightening offers a heat-free alternative to Japanese or Keratine methods.  The process helps to increase manageability and is a rather pleasant treatment to have at the salon.  By using chemicals rather than heat to straighten out the hair, you can enjoy smooth, soft hair for up to 6 months after the treatment.

  1. Straightening Brushes

A clever combination of a ceramic hot plate and a traditional hairbrush, these electric brushes can help to ease out curls and frizz, quickly and easily.  Allow the brush to heat up and then brush over the hair as often as you need to until it is straight.  This may not help you on wet, humid days or keep your hair poker straight from dusk till dawn, but they are a useful tool for a quick fix.

  1. Ceramic straighteners

No article would be complete without a mention of the holy grail of the hair straightening world – the humble ceramic straightener.  Using special ceramic plates that get hot without burning the hair, these flat irons can simply be run over the hair to create instantly smooth and frizz-free locks.  Whether you spent a large amount of money on a salon quality flat-iron or opt for something less expensive, these are a must-have for anyone looking to for straight hair in a flash.
