Q&A: I want to try getting my hair permanently straightened? Need Info!?

Question by Ivy has Twin Boys!: I want to try getting my hair permanently straightened? Need Info!?
I would like to get a salon to do it, but not if it is over $ 200. If I do it myself, do you have a good method / product to do this?

I have long thick curly hair, and have never had it straightened.

I hear the Keratin method is the best one?

Permanent until 3 months then they’ll go back to how it used to be.

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.

Google keratin treatment warnings. About 1,980,000 results (0.17 seconds) 
 
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.
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.

BTW: A variety of hair-straightening products used in professional salons can expose both hairdressers and their customers to formaldehyde. The results show that three professional hair-smoothing treatments labeled “formaldehyde free” can produce the cancer-causing chemical at concentrations above the occupational exposure limits set by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. They tested four products: Coppola Keratin Complex Blonde Formula, Global Keratin Juvexin Optimized Functional Keratin, La Brasiliana Escluso Keratin Treatment with Collagen, and Brazilian Blowout Acai Professional Smoothing Solution. While ChemRisk tested four popular brands of hair straighteners, there are hundreds on the market. Nov. 11-11

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.

Chemicals can enter the body through the skin.

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.

Question by Zhenya: What is the best process by which to permanently straighten hair?
I’ve done Brazilian Keratin straightening before and it worked very well.My hair stayed straight in humidity and after a shower but I found out that the cream they use contains formaldehyde.Does anyone know of a safer way to chemically straighten hair or keratin products that don’t contain formaldehyde?
By permanently straightening I mean that the hair that is treated stays straight for a long time.Obviously when the hair grows out it wont be straight

No such thing as Permanently Straightening Hair.
But I know that ReBonding it can keep it straight without straightening it for a few months-years.
