How Flat Iron Works:

The basic idea behind making hair straight with flat iron is breaking the bonds by applying heat which is responsible for curly hair. The heat is the leading cause of hair problems that you may encounter while using flat irons. If your hair is curlier, it will require more heat to make it straight and therefore more hair problems.

Hair problems with Hair Straightening Irons:
