Any ways for straighter hair?

Postby chelsea0816 » Tue, 02 Feb 2010 4:16 pm

Hi all,

Does anyone has any tried and tested methods for straightening long hair without making it look stick-straight? I have natural wavy and thick hair. It looks really poufy, and i'm tired of always having to blow-dry it to make my hair look neat.
Much appreciated if anyone can advise on a good and reasonable place and their price range!

Cheers,
Flo

Try either soft rebonding or get a flat iron :)

I wanted super straight hair....but soft rebonding gave it naturally straight hair.....longer hair would probably cost you abt $250 and above depending on the location and the product used. The price quoted is usually for Loreal

What elska said, get soft rebonding, but try to ask for better brands like shiseido or loreal. There are cheaper deals out there in "home salons" if you're comfy with the idea but you probably might want to check out the reviews on cozycot.

You can also try a mix - I myself did soft rebonding on my roots and upwards and towards the ends I got it rebonded with the regular cream.

be careful where you go for rebonding, in general even with a great product rebonding is very damaging to your hair...i am a fan of the Brazilian Keratin treatment, a few salons have started doing it in Singapore, it is less damaging than regular rebonding especially if your hair is not thick and has processing like colour, etc.

I am a big fan of the brazilian blowout straightening treatment offer at Le Papillon.

Kimora, I'd be interested to know where you get your treatment done as well. Would definitely like to give the brazillian blowout a go :)

[b]I had my straightened and colored recently in Sg, must say, I was impress with the outcome and services rendered to me and my whole family. Would highly recommend this salon, Arches Hairspa + Nailbar, at City Square Mall. The prices are reasonable and best is, they have Kerastase treatments and products which I adore and use extensively in Paris before coming here.

well.. rebonding will make your hair "flat straight"for the 1st week.
After a few washing, it will start to look natural. And on average, it last around a year, depending how fast your hair is growing.

I'm not sure about soft rebonding. I know someone who did soft rebonding, it didn't last out long on her hair. Maybe because of the different hair texture. I guess if you got thick and curly hair, soft rebonding is definitely not the choice for you.
