How To Naturally Repair The Hair Damaged From Straightening

By Somya Ojha

It is no secret that straightening can cause a serious damage to the hair. While there are a few women who get permanent straightening done, there are still many who use flat irons to achieve straight, sleek hair.

In this styling method, heat is used to change the texture of the hair. This can damage the hair follicles and weaken them. If this damage is not taken care of, then it might lead to other unsightly hair conditions like thinning and breakage.
