Hair is one of the most important fashion accessories that you have. You can style it in lots of different ways, which will completely change your appearance. I’ve tried all sorts of different hair treatments in the past, including braiding, platting, curling, straightening and cutting into various styles. One of the latest trends for your hair is the cold smoothing hair treatment. This article will look at exactly what this is and identify why you might want to use it.
Most of the other thermal reconditioning permanent straighteners create hair, which is perfectly smooth. However, if you don’t want to have your hair this straight then cold smoothing might be suitable. It is an extremely popular way of straightening your hair for a long period of time.
Cold smoothing is suitable for medium length to long hair. The length of your hair will affect the amount of time the treatment takes, and the cost. Most people will spend around $300 on the treatment, which will take about 2 hours. This is much quicker than the other methods of straightening your hair.
Cold Smoothing vs Japanese Straightening
Japanese straightening creates perfectly straight hair (click here to learn more). This is suitable for some people and it can last about 6 months at a time. However, if you still want some bounce and curls in your hair then you should try cold smoothing. Cold smoothing simply reduces any fizz from your hair while still allowing the natural bounce and curls to develop.
Dealing with Frizz
If you have very fine hair, then you will probably battle with frizz your whole life. Frizzy hair is a nightmare to deal with, especially when it is very humid outside. Cold smoothing will mean that you never have to worry about frizzy hair spoiling your day.
This will also speed up the time it takes to get ready, because you don’t need to straighten your hair all the time. You can still curl your hair if you want to it just reduces the frizz. The treatment will also add shine to your hair and make it look very healthy.
How does it work?
Having the procedure done is actually very relaxing and quick. It only takes around 2 hours to complete. You don’t need to use any heat with this process, which will help to reduce any damage caused to your hair.
First the hair is washed, and then dried. Once it is completely dry, the cold smoothing solution can be applied to the hair. This is then left on your head for about 20 minutes for it to soak in. After this time, it is then rinsed off your hair and washed again. The hair can then be dried again and briefly sealed using a hot iron.
