is straightened hair the same as naturally straight hair?
Have coiled kinky hair myself and have been considering straightening my hair as some other members of this forum have considered too. While Im serious about my own hair care, I want to see how straightening my hair can take me in terms of hairstyles.
I went through the thread on best hair straighteners and made up my mind and bought the CHI one as some other guys in the forum have good feedback from it. My question would be whether I should continue with my custom hair care for my curly hair or if I should change now to hair care geared for straight hair?
Thanks all Smile

RE: is straightened hair the same as naturally straight hair?
Straightened curly hair is not the same as naturally straight hair. The cross section of the shaft in curly hair is oval or flat so when you straightened curly hair you end up with hair that may be straight but still has the cross section of curly hair. Straight hair has a round cross section, and the flatter the cross section of the hair shaft the more fragile the hair is.

What this all means is that you should continue with your curly hair care even when your hair is straight. I would even advice to condition the hair even more than usual.

Have a look at this thread to see how the shape of the shaft for each hair type looks.

The op's question was actually very interesting as I never stopped to think about the difference Big Grin Id have thought both naturally straight hair and straightened hair would be the same. The more you know, huh folks? Smile

I don't think styling works the same way as naturally, But not sure as with girls, it can look totally natural even when they have straightened.
