When your Hair Follicles get exposed to unwanted chemicals for permanent straightening, they may lose their inherent composition. And remember, if you do this regularly, your Hair scalp may damage and result in interrupted Hair growth.

Dryness of Hair is inevitable whenever you try out any Chemical or Heat styling treatments on your Hair. I, try to personally refrain from these techniques except for some very special occasions. The reason behind this dryness is the loss of natural moisture from your hair.
3. Enhanced Frizziness
Frizziness is also a consequence of dryness and scalp damage due to Chemical exposure. No doubt, the Hair straightening treatments will make your Hair flawless immediately after doing it but that’s not everlasting. After your hair wash routine, the frizz will show up again making the condition worse than before.
4. Prone To Breakage
This one you can easily guess and why not? Breakage of hair strands is a result of Scalp damage and frizzy hair. Whenever you tend to alter the natural state of any of your body parts, the result will show up in varieties. So before, you do it, be aware of these consequences and the ways to handle this.

This is a consequence that alters your originality. Your hair is a part of your Image. Permanent Hair straightening will damage this image and you will not be able to get back to the same mirror image of yours once if you regularly do this. Identity crisis may result in Stress and Depression in women at a later stage anytime.
