Many of my friends went for straightening of hair. All of them said that it led to a lot of hair loss, but still people do it. Have you ever done straightening of hair? Did you feel hair loss as a result of it? Do you think it is advisable?

I never advise people to go for hair straightening. It will ruin your hair to a great extent. One of my friends who is fond or hair growing went for hair straightening and as a result Hair fall is the only gift he got and in 20 months around he became entirely Bald. So I never advise anyone to go for hair straightening. I myself havew a passion for growing long hairs and I have a long but curly hair. So whenever I go to party or attend any important funtions, i sprinkle water in my hair which make them get straightened temporarily for 2 to 3 hours and that is the best way as you wont experience any difficulties such as hair loss and other stuffs. But for the people who sprinkles hair for temporary straightening, I would suggest you all to apply hair oil regularly as it would help in preventing hair fall.

Thank you so much for the response. Entirely bald?? Please don't go for it. I like curly hair compared to straight hair. Have you seen actor Prasanth recently? He has grown his hair. He has a semi-curly hair and it looks very nice for him. It is good to have a little long curly hair for guys. Anyway, it again depends on personal prefernces and how well it suits your face. Happy mylotting.
