Much is said about progressive straightening, and its advantages and risks for hair. Taking advantage of the April Fool's Day that is celebrated today, we invite our representative of the Nutrisalon professional products brand, Beatriz Ferreira, to tell us the 7 myths and truths about progressive straightening:
1. All progressive straighteners have formaldehyde
Myth! There are versions of progressive straightening without formaldehyde.
2. Progressive straightening only works if you have formaldehyde
Myth! Not all progressive straighteners use formaldehyde as an active ingredient. There are other ingredients used to smooth the strands more smoothly. Most progressive straightening is done with carbocysteine, an amino acid that opens the structures of the hair, which allows the straightening to be done later with the action of the board. However, for the hair to be straight, it is necessary to close the strands again.
3. Using shampoo with salt decreases the durability of progressive straightening
Truth! Hair products that have salt in their formula, end up removing the effect of progressive straightening more quickly. To avoid this result, it is recommended to use unsalted shampoos, which clean the hair in a less aggressive way.
4. After performing the straightening we cannot wash the hair
Myth! The hair can be washed from the first day that the progressive straightening is done.
5. The progressive brush can be made on any hair
Truth! The result varies depending on the hair, but the procedure can really be done on all types of hair.
6. Progressive straightening causes hair loss
Myth! Everything is related to how the product is applied to the hair. One of the basic precautions is not to apply it directly to the scalp. In addition, hair loss can be caused by factors other than the progressive straightening itself, which is why it is so important to test the streak before applying it to the entire hair.
7. Bathing in the pool damages progressive straightening
Truth! The contact with chlorine or ozone wears out the progressive straightening a lot, because the hair is elastic and tends to break more easily.
