My hair does not give me rest! As the owner of curly hair, I always strive to straighten them with hair dryers, irons, and taut tails.
One day, my hairdresser seduced me with a creatine hair straightening. She promised me perfect straight hair, a minimum of effort on their styling and just the fulfillment of my dreams! Naturally, I immediately agreed. And that was my mistake. But I understood it a little later.
I will share with you my sad story.
I will begin with a description of the procedure itself. It takes a couple of hours. First, the hair is cleaned with a special shampoo. Then they are applied to the composition for straightening. I have to say, it smells very strong! Even eats away the eyes! The master in general put it on in a mask, and here I sat and inhaled these vapors. Fortunately, she did not faint, did not get poisoning, did not observe allergies either.
Then the hair is straightened by an iron; strand after strand is a rather long procedure. Well, in conclusion, a surprise awaits – absolutely straight hair, beautiful, shiny. In general, I left the master in delight, which did not last long.
And even the little nuances of the procedure – you can not wash your hair for a few days, put it into a gum, wear hairpins. Otherwise there will be creases. But all this stuff. I straightened out by the weekend, so my dirty head didn’t scare me much.
Advantages of creatine hair straightening
Plus, in the end, one – straight and beautiful hair, no hint of curls. After washing them, of course, you need to straighten, but this procedure already takes much less time. And for me saving time is very important – now you can get up before work later. This pluses end.
Six cons of creatine hair straightening
So, now about the cons, which turned out to be a lot.
Minus 1. Much volume is lost – curly will understand me. I could not get used to the fact that my hair had visually become much smaller.
Minus 2. Broken Tips Apparently, this is the trouble of all chemical procedures. The tips of the hair became dry and began to split – I had to cut them so that the hair became more well-groomed.
Minus 3. The result does not hold the promised time. A month later, my hair began to curl after washing as well, and they promised me half a year. And the curls were no longer as tight as before.
Minus 4. Hair quality has deteriorated significantly. Apparently, no matter how gentle the procedure would be, anyway, the chemical composition applied to the hair negatively affects their condition. In addition, the hair began to push.
Minus 5. The need to use special shampoos. First, they are expensive and not everywhere you can find them. And secondly, they practically do not lather and are difficult to wash off. A little hurried with washing my head – you risk getting dirty curls.
Minus 6. Hair still need to straighten. To be honest, in my naivety, I thought that now I would not do it at all. But, alas and ah.
In general, I did not like this procedure. I spent a lot of money not only on straightening, but also on the subsequent treatment of my hair.
Of course, I regret that I mocked my curls like that. Three years have passed since that moment, and only my hair comes back to its former state.
But now I know for sure that chemical exposure is chemical exposure. And if nature decided to reward with curls – you need to rejoice. And straight hair can always be obtained at home with the help of an iron and a hair dryer.
Did you make creative hair straightening? How do you like this procedure? Maybe I was just unlucky …
