How long does a temporary straightening last?

Flat irons are one of the most important and commonly used hair tools when it comes to normal straightening of the hair as it is one of the best ways to avoid the harsh effects of the chemicals which are applied at the time of permanent straightening. The normal straightening by using the flat iron will only last based on your hair type on ways of maintaining it after straightening.

If you don't wash your hair, temporary straightening can only keep your hair straight for about two to three days maximum and, not more than that. Certain reasons that interfere with the duration of your temporary straightened hair are mainly.

Hair Texture

Hair texture is one of the most important factors that mostly affect the results of temporary ironing of your hair. If you have extremely curly hair then, your hair won't remain straight for longer periods due to its texture.

Alternatively, if you have fine hair, then, it is quite obvious that your hair will remain straight for longer periods. Also, the wavy hair will remain straight by the proper application of techniques as well as tools.

Quality of the straightening iron

Tools are one of the most important factors that affect the quality of the results of straightening. Using a low-quality hair straightening tool will never make thick and curly hair straight as the tool won't be able to properly distribute the heat throughout your hair. Flat irons having the ceramic technology will effectively help in proper straightening of the hair without damaging it.


If you sweat a lot during workout sessions then, chances are there that your hair won't be able to hold the straightening effect for longer periods. Also, if you frequently tie your temporary straightened hair at the time of working out, then, your hair strands will lose the straightening effect soon.

Therefore, temporary straightening can last just for a few days and your hair texture, flat iron, as well as your lifestyle, has a direct effect on straightening.
