No-Lye Hair Relaxers Review
While flat irons can often suffice, some women decide to use chemical hair straighteners for a more permanent, longer lasting result. Others just visit a salon for a Brazilian keratin treatment or Japanese hair straightening treatment and in just a few hours, achieve straight and sleek hair. However, there are also products available that make permanently straight hair possible in a convenient at-home treatment that takes a fraction of the time it takes for a salon treatment, hair relaxers.
Relaxers can be broken down into two main groups, lye hair relaxers and and no lye relaxers. Lye hair relaxers are stronger and used Sodium Hydroxide to break down curl and wave patterns in the innermost parts of the hair producing great results. Unfortunately, Sodium Hydroxide is very powerful and the hair’s integrity can become compromised sometimes causing damage, producing straight hair, that is weaker and more susceptible to breakage. Even though Lye hair relaxers should be used with caution, they have been used safely and effectively by many for a number of years. The main things to keep in mind are to stay away from excessive heat styling or anything else that can cause additional damage to the hair.
No-Lye relaxers use guanidine hydroxide to straighten the hair. Gianidine hydroxide is also a strong chemical that works from the inside of the hair to break down curl, however, it is said to be less irritating to the skin and scalp, and more gentle on hair. No-lye hair relaxers are recommended for anyone with especially sensitive skin or scalp. No-lye relaxers do tend to leave the hair a little more dry,so it is best to follow with a deep conditioner or moisture treatment and repeat for a few weeks after.
