I can give you tips for straightening natural black hair from permanent to temporary. Natural black hair is very fragile, first tip, be careful when you are straightening it. If you are looking for more manageable hair, you might be interested in straightening your hair. Natural black hair has a texture and a pattern to it. This generally means that your hair will be curly and coarse. It can be hard to handle, especially on humid days, when it can become frizzy. In order to keep the frizz out of your hair, you can use various methods to straighten your hair. However, no matter what method you use, you need to be careful to keep your hair healthy. The more chemicals and heat you apply to your hair the more damaged and difficult to manage it will be in the long run. Here are some tips for straightening natural black hair.
First of all, you can straighten your hair with chemical. You can either do a permanent relaxer or a permanent texturizer. With the former option you are applying a lot of harsh chemicals to your hair to change its composition from naturally curly to straight. If you opt for this you will see a dramatic change in your hair immediately. The change will also be permanent. You will have to grow your hair out in order to get it back to its natural condition. Texturizer works about the same way, but without such dramatic results. When you go through your growing out transition period it will be easier to mask the line between new and old grow. However, the best tip for straightening your hair with chemicals is simply: don’t do it. It is hard on your hair and not natural.
If you do want to have straight or less curly hair on a semi-regular basis, you can use heat to straighten your hair. For instance, you can add just a dash of gel to your hair and straighten it with a flat iron or a heat comb. Here, you should really be thinking about manageability rather than complete straightness. After all, you were born with naturally beautiful hair, so why not let that beauty show? If you are opting for heat, keep the temperature down low. That way you won’t run the risk of burning your hair. Also, make sure that if you are using heat that you apply oil to your hair every night before you go to bed and wrap your hair up in a scarf. This will keep your hair healthier overall and make it more receptive to styling in the future. These are just a few tips for straightening natural black hair.
