Are you someone like me who just adores straight hair? My hair is really thick and has got so many curls. It’s so difficult to manage. On some days it will dry up naturally and gives these beautiful curls. Other times it looks so rough and messy.
It’s a risk that I cannot take. I cannot wait and see how my hair will look the next morning after a wash. I especially cannot do this when I have an important event planned.
These concerns of mine were just growing over time. Until one day when I finally had enough.
I decided that instead of waiting to see how my hair turns out, I would rather make my hair look beautiful every day. So finally I decided that I'll use hair straighteners to get rid of those curly and wavy hairs.
What does a Hair Straightener do?
A hair straightener applies heat to hair in order to make it straight.
Hair is made up of proteins known as keratin. Keratin is very difficult to break down. Exposing keratin to heat will help do so.
While holding hair tight between the two hot plates of the hair straightener, the bonds of the hair begin to break. This breakage allows the keratin chains to move around and take a new place which results in the straightening of hair.
