Straightened Hair Do Look Good But..

Updated on July 10, 2013

Some people are just so addicted that they don't even step out of the house without straightening their hair and you might be one of those addicts.

This addiction has no limits.You straight your hair where ever you go.For instance,you straight your hair when you go to educational institutes ,you straight your hair when you go on a visit at your aunt's house,you straight your hair when you go to office and sometimes you straight your hair unnecessarily when at home.Why? because you are suffering from this extreme addiction problem.Have you ever thought that you should give some rest to your hair? no you didn't. When ever you are free at home,try to give time to your hair.Brush them slowly,do their oiling,loosely pull them back and tie.Your hair are a living thing.Human need food and water to survive, similarly our hair needs oil to survive.

As you know that everything has its side effects if used excessively.So,hair straightening have side effects too,and in large number,few are below :


• Straightening your hair too much,results in hair fall.

• If you straight your hair daily,the heat of the straightener causes burnt smell in your hair,and the smell is quite unpleasant.

• Hair straightening causes split ends.

• straightening prevent your hair from growing.

• Hair straightening can also affect your scalp because some people's scalp region is very sensitive that it starts itching due to the heat of straightener.

• After taking shower,your hair will look dry and frizzy and you will feel them rough,because of daily straightening.

• If your hair are naturally straight but still you are straightening them because you want your hair to look dead-straight, volumized and shinny,then instead of getting what you want,you will lose what you have.Because of this extra straightening of yours,it will make your hair look a bit curly and frizzy.

• Hair straightening takes away the natural shine in your hair.

• You use products which prevent heat from damaging your hair.These products do work and they do prevent your hair from damaging but only if you use it occasionally.If you use those products daily for straightening then they will stop working and then you will need more strong product and in this way your hair will be ruined.

After reading all the disadvantages,I hope the addicts will think once,before straightening their hair,because the charm in natural hair cannot be obtained by artificial ways. " Because you are beautiful the way you are :) . "

      Straightening hair can be very damaging. But it doesn't just come from the heat, it comes from pulling at the roots as well. The specific issues you pointed out should help someone make a the best choice for them. Very useful.

      My hair is so naturally straight that one day a coworker patted the back of my head and said "is your hair really that straight or do your straighten it"? I laughed and told her it was naturally that straight. I knew she didn't mean any disrespect. It took me years to accept it the way it was and to stop getting permanents to curl it. Voted you up+

      That's true, Sara, 'you're beautiful the way you are'. People with curly hair want it straight, and those with straight hair spend much time and money making it curly! We should accept ourselves as God made us.
