While many women (and even some men) enjoy straightening out those curly locks with the aid of a straightening rod or salon chemicals, doing so can severely damage your hair. At Vinci Hair Clinic, we value the health of your hair. Habits that damage your hair can cause or contribute to hair breakage, thinning, and even balding. If you want to prevent hair loss, then reconsider hair straightening.  In a recent Hindustani Times article[i], Soumya Srivasta shared three reasons why straightening hair is a bad choice.

  1. It can make your hair dull and dry

Straightening your hair can alter its appearance in negative ways. One Indian hair expert quoted by Srivasta observed that after using hair straightening processes, “hair tends to become frizzy and dry and the natural colour of the hair fades away, making it lusterless. Natural elasticity of the hair dries leading to breakage.” Ironing hair at high temperatures also leads to burning and causes irreparable damage to the natural sheen of healthy hair.

  1. Chemicals can damage your hair

Salon hair-straightening procedures use chemicals that permanently straighten hair. In addition to damaging the hair itself, these chemicals cause allergies, rashes, and itchiness.

  1. It causes hair loss

People who use straightening irons and visit hair salons for chemical straightening processes experience hair loss more frequently. If you continue, this may cause premature thinning of your hair and even bald patches.

At Vinci Hair Clinic, we believe that the health of your hair matters. We hope that you invest the time into developing healthy habits for your hair, and we encourage everyone to avoid straightening their hair to maintain hair health and prevent hair loss.
