Chemically straightened hair: What you need to know


The process of permanently straightening your hair can leave your locks feeling dehydrated. So it's essential to have a decent aftercare routine.

Jonathan Long of Lockonego says: "Chemically straightened hair needn't look parched and distressed. By using effective products after your smoothing treatment you can avoid breakage and split ends from the beginning, as well as maintain a luscious shine and 'just-stepped-out-of-the-salon' look.

Hair expert Christian Toth says: "Make sure you use a professional shampoo range from your hairdressers as a lot of less expensive hair care brands will leave build up in your hair because they are designed to give you an instant (but not permanent) silky feeling."
