I recently decided to let my relaxer grow out and currently have about four inches of new growth. My hair’s texture is a mix between coarse and fine. How can I get the straight look I love without processing my hair or getting a weave? –Permed Out
There are a variety of Keratin treatments on the market that will not have a permanent effect on your hair but may help you to achieve and maintain the straight style you desire. Keratin treatment products can last anywhere from a few days to three months. Though they will not make your hair straight, they will help to make it a lot more manageable. I recommend doing some research first to determine if this is the route you want to take. You might also start with some of the more temporary systems to see if you like the results.
