Get it Straight

A keratin straightening treatment smooths waves and curls, and rids strands of unruly frizz, according to hair pro Colorist of Maxine Salon in Chicago. How straight your hair actually gets will depend on your texture: Fine, wavy hair will most likely straighten out completely, while super-curly strands are typically left with a softwave. The best part about the treatment? No matter your texture, you'll be able to blow-dry your hair in less than half the time it normally takes. Plus, "unlike some of the older Japanese-style hair-straightening services, keratin treatments actually improve hair's health," he says.
