Buying the Treatment
You may find it slightly difficult to buy the treatment from a shop. A better solution would be to buy it online. Search for ‘do it yourself’ hair straightening treatments on the Internet and start looking at a few of the different products offered.

Inside the package you should find a bottle of shampoo, the solution itself, and some instructions. First spend some time studying the instructions so you know exactly what you are doing. You will normally need to wash your hair using a special shampoo, this will make your hair much more porous so that it can absorb more of the solution.
After the hair has been washed, it should then be completely dried. Then the solution can be applied all over the hair. You might find it easier to get someone to help with this step. After this, the solution should be left on the hair for 20 minutes or so. The hair is then washed and dried for the last time. It can then be sealed using a straightening iron.

You don’t need to treat it any differently then normal.
Now your hair should be frizz free and perfectly straight. The results should last for around 5 months or more. After which, the treatment can be applied again to continue enjoying perfectly straight hair.
