Many women are now turning to the Brazilian hair straightening technique to get those sleek straight locks that they wish they had been born with. But there is still a debate as to the safety of this hair straightening technique. There has been plenty of claims that the chemicals applied to the hair during this straightening process contain formaldehyde which can be extremely dangerous especially if the person getting their hair straightened has a reaction to this substance.

Of course for women who are nursing or pregnant this technique should never be used to straighten your hair. But for the rest of us it will be like the Japanese hair straightening method; something we should consider carefully. Anytime you choose to subject your hair to harsh chemicals you run the risk of possible complications and you will be placing a lot of stress and damage upon your hair. Of course if you do not want to take this risk to get straight hair there are plenty of professional flat irons that will get the job done with the harsh chemicals. These irons can be used daily if the proper temperature is used on the iron so hair is not exposed to too much heat.

When straightening your hair with a flat iron hair straightener it is essential to use professional hair tools, which have variable temperature settings on the warming plates. Using the proper temperature setting on your flat iron hair straightener is important to ensure your hair will actually straighten yet will not be damaged in the process.

If your hair is fine or already damaged, use the lowest temperature setting on your hair iron. For very thick and course hair then the highest temperature settings will be needed to achieve straight hair. This leaves the middle temperature settings for normal hair with no damage.

You should also invest in a quality hair iron to straighten your hair. Professional hair tools will achieve better results as temperature settings and construction of them make them better hair tools than cheaply made hair irons.

When trying any iron on your hair for the first time you should start off with a small area at a low setting. Eventually with time you will get accustomed to your hair straightener and become a pro at straightening your hair and maybe even the hair of your friends.
