    • Dear Margaret,

      First of all, thank you very much for your sweet words. We appreciate our readers’ feedback.

      Secondly, both these permanent hair straightening treatments are damaging to hair. If you still want to try them, we would suggest you go for the hair smoothing treatment because it is less harmful and might not result in any adverse effects if you use a formaldehyde-free solution.

      We hope this would help you.

      • Thank you very much for taking the time and replying to me. Also, thank you for your suggestion. I have decided not to try any of these.

  3. Hi,

    I have rebonded hair and I can say that every aspect you have mentioned here is authentic. Even though for the first few months it will ensure lustrously, straightened manes, the side effects don’t take time to appear. I wish I had read this piece of writing before and tried hair smoothing instead.

    Thank you for such a descriptive comparison. I think it will help a lot of girls out there.
