Hair straightening cream is used by people who want to smooth and tame their curly or frizzy hair. There basically are two kinds of straitening cream, chemical and temporary. A chemical straightening product can last up to several months. Temporary straightening products last only about one day, then must be reapplied.
Hair thickness, coarseness and unruliness should be considered when deciding which kind of straightening cream to use. Hair that is simply wavy might need only a daily straightening cream to smooth it out. Tightly curled or extremely frizzy and unruly hair might need a chemical straightener to get it under control.
