Hair straightening creams are chemicals that help you straighten your hair and keep it like that for several weeks. The process involves single or multiple treatments that result in either temporary or long term hair straightening. Rebonding, keratin and extenso are the most commonly done procedures in salons for hair straightening in Pakistan and worldwide. Hair straightening creams, neutralizers and other products are involved in the process to achieve silky smooth frizz-free hair. Hair straightener cream price in Pakistan varies depending on the brand and type but they are generally not very expensive and are easily available online and in stores.
Pros & Cons

Can make hair look flat
People with curly or frizzy hair love to straighten their tresses with the use of electronic gadgets like hair straighteners and brushes as a quick fix. But the effect is only temporary and lasts till your hair doesn't get wet. Just a light shower of rain can destroy the look of your perfectly straightened hair, leaving it looking unkempt and wavy. For this purpose, hair straightening creams were invented to straighten your locks and give them a glossy and silky effect that would last several weeks. Keune, Wella, Schwarzkopf Glatt, Loreal are some of the most popular hair straightener cream brands in Pakistan.
Hair Straightening Treatments
While rebonding makes your hair pin-straight and silky, it is harmful and damaging to the hair in the long run. Though extenso is considered safer and less aggressive, keratin is the safest option out of the three but the results are not as good as extenso or rebonding. Extenso will give your hair lots of volume and the straight effect will last for 10 to 12 months.
Hair Straightening Cream Kits
Some hair-straightening creams like the Loreal extenso are complete kits that include the cream, neutralizer and all necessary things required for the process. Some are even infused with jojoba oil and other useful nutrients.
While there are a few benefits of hair straightener creams, the side effects include hair damage and itchy scalp. If the straightening creams come in contact with your scalp during the process, it can result in dermatitis, allergic reactions and other skin conditions. Some creams also make the hair brittle and dry in the long run.
