Chemical Hair Straightening: No Longer Available at Malkim

The team at Malkim Hair Shop in Guelph is committed to giving our clients healthy, beautiful hair! And since we’ve decided to discontinue our chemical hair straightening services, we thought you deserved to know why.

Chemical straightening is a popular way for women to achieve long-lasting, smooth, straight hair. This kind of chemical straightening treatment actually changes the structure of your hair, and can last up to a year.

For clients with unruly, frizzy hair, this may sound like a dream come true. But the reality is that chemical straightening treatments are incredibly harmful and damaging to your hair.

In fact, chemical straightening treatments are more damaging to your hair than bleach! They’re incredibly drying and stressful for your hair. They also have a high pH level, which is not safe to be exposed to. Pre-treatments are available, but they can’t fully protect your hair from the damaging effects of chemical straightening.

Hair that is treated with chemical straightening also requires a ton of aftercare. Expensive products like serums, masks and hydrating shampoos are necessary to combat the dryness of your chemically straightened hair.

Even with aftercare, it’s possible for treatments to fail. At Malkim, we care about providing our clients with high quality services that make you feel beautiful and looking your best. We believe that chemical straightening just has too many variables that could result in a disappointing experience for our clients.
