Hi all,

I have been on to read some posts for a while but never needed to start a new thread until now!

I usually use GHD's, but have been asked by lots of clients repeatedly about which other straighteners are near enough as good as them but less expensive. So last week I decided to purchase some others to see how they compared, I used them on myself and found they were actually extremely good!
I used them on my mums hair at the weekend for a wedding to curl it (she has naturally very curly hair, so wanted slightly looser curls for a change) Got brilliant results from the straighteners, very pleased.

However, she washed her hair 2 days later (by this time her hair had gone straight) and her natural curls have not reformed it has stayed straight! In a panic she rang me, and came over so I could wash her hair with my deep cleansing shampoo, a few of the curls did reform but most did not, I washed it again for her the next day aswell and the same not all the curls have reformed! (Just to add I have styled my mums hair in this way before with no prolems at all)

I have rung the company and in the process of sending the straighteners to them for analysis and pictures of my mums normal hair and how it is now, although as I said to them even if the straighteners were faulty I cant see how it could permanently change the structure of the hair!

I have just never heard of this or come across anything like this happening over the 10 years I have been a hairdresser! and wondered if anyone else has?

Thanks,

StunningO

Sounds weird! I don't see how straighteners could do that?! X

I can see how it can happen over time (and damage) but once!? Will be following this thread to see if anybody has a clue!! X

Thanks for the replies,
I shall keep the name of the straighteners held back until I hear back from the analysis! I have spoken to all past colleagues and everyone is just as stumped as I am!
Her normal hair has still not returned after more washes! I may send her to see a trichologist to get their view on things.

I shall keep you all posted!

That happened to me with GHDs, but after prolonged use, I assumed it was caused due to damage.

I have since had a serious trim (my hair was quite long) and the curl returned.

I have only seen this happen with over straightening. I know a few people with Very curly Afro type hair who have over straightened there hair & when they wash it it just kinks no actual curl. The new growth of hair is very curly like there original hair. This is the reason I only allow my daughter who is mixed race to oy do hers once a month.
