How do I get my hair sleek, straight shiny?

Question by popper785: How do I get my hair sleek, straight shiny?
So, I highlighted my hair light blonde a couple years ago, and it completely ruined my hair! I tried using Dove Advanced Therapy shampoo, which was supposed to keep my hair hydrated and help restore it’s natural oils and crap. Didn’t work. Now, my hair only gets straight when it’s oily nd if I haven’t washed it, and that’s gross! What should I do?

Answer by sancheza4687
try Biosilk. my hair did the same thing when i started coloring it and biosilk just restored it and help it look so healthy!!! dont use alot so that ur hair gets oily but just enough. Put it in your hair when its wet, and then style like normal. If u want ur hair straight try a straightner. The chi is great even though its a bit pricey but any straighter is ok!

hope this helps!

Answer by Sur La Mer
I do not recommend NEITHER.
I wouldn’t recommend them. There are many brands of hair straightening out there and they call them anyway they want to get your attention. Coco is another name brand. Some Japanese hair straightening processes can damage the hair and leave it flat and lifeless.
Hair straighteners are known as hair relaxers, keratin treatments and hair-smoothing products. They work by breaking and reforming the chemical bonds in keratin, which is the main protein that gives shape to each hair.

The hair industry is a billion dollar business, they sell products that cleans & condition the hair. They also sell products that damage and causes hair loss. They also DO NOT give money back guarantee for damaged hair or hair loss due to ‘abuse’. Mechanical, chemical, or thermal styling. Hair straighteners and relaxers top the hair products pose the greatest risks. Hair relaxers, related products marketed heavily to African-American women, are dangerous because they may contain powerful chemicals such as lye, a toxic substance also used in drain cleaners.

Past users of the product have complained of sore throat, skin irritation, headaches, chest pain and rashes, among other symptoms. That may have something to do with the fact that the levels of formaldehyde found in the product rival those typically used in funeral embalming. That’s a lot of formaldehyde.
Reps for the company swear it’s all a misunderstanding. And the product labels itself “no formaldehyde” and “formaldehyde free.” The company has until September 12 to get its affairs in order, or risk having its product seized by the FDA. “We have been tested countless times by OSHA,” the company’s CEO Mike Brady told NPR. “And we have never exceeded a safety standard ever.” Right now, they are fighting with the FDA, but will continue to give what customers want,. Buyer beware!
Hair-straightening products are allowed to contain small concentrations of formaldehyde (0.2 percent). But several hair-straightening solutions have been found to contain well above the allowable limit. For example, one popular hair-straightening product that advertised itself as “formaldehyde-free” actually contained 6.8 percent to 11.8 percent formaldehyde.

It is a billion dollar business, and they do not give money back guarantee for damaged hair or hair loss due to ‘abuse’, in this case, cancer.

“No-lye” hair relaxers safer? > > > > > > >
•Any relaxer can burn your scalp if you use it the wrong way.
•Lye is something found in many hair relaxers. It helps the product work, but it can also burn the skin.
•Relaxers without lye don’t usually bother your skin as much, but you still need to be safe and use them the right way.

Chemicals can enter the body through the skin.

Best hair straightening product?

Question by Qqq: Best hair straightening product?
I’m new to hair straightening (and here). I would like to know what hair protect products people suggest to protect hair before straightening it (preferably one that’s not TO expensive but works quite well)

Best answer:

Answer by kayrayxoxo
I love all of the CHI hair products, especially if you have a chi straightener. But even if you dont, try the CHI silk infusion before you straighten. It makes your hair very smooth, silky, and it’s protective. Also get the keratin spray, and use this BEFORE the silk infusion. Happy straightening.
