I direct this reader’s question on chemical hair straightening to you. 

“I happen to have extremely frustrating thick kinky frizzy hair, which I would now LOVE to make straight with a little salon processing.  Here are my mane (haha, see what I did there?) concerns about the thermal reconditioning straightening process:

  1. It might be damaging.  Lots of chemicals = not natural.
  2. It might not come out right if done by the wrong person.  Its a patented system, I think, and I know people who haven’t had it work out.
  3. Its…EXPENSIVE.  I want to know if its worth it to bargain hunt, or if i should go to a pro and just shell out the cash to have it done right.

I’ve done a little research—but there is shockingly little info onthe web about chemical straightening.”

Do you have any experience to share or advice for her?
