Who doesn't love straight hair? Straight hair can never go out of fashion! They look amazing and are super easy to manage and style. However, not all of us are blessed with naturally straight hair and go for hair straightening treatments or rely on hair straightening machines.
Many of us don't really realise that these treatments and straighteners give us instant results but damage our hair in the long run.
