Rumbie – Straight Hair


Relaxed, texturised or keratined…

Curly hair is still at the core curly hair. Treat with TLC.

Relax and know your curl

Though your hair may be naturally curly, for versatility’s sake, the curl has been loosened making it “easier” or quicker to straighten your hair or wear a looser curl.

Our skilled team respects the choices of the curly girl or guy and will help you with educated options, tips and products for healthy straightened hair (yes that is a thing).

Straightened hair maintenance is easier than you think or have possibly thought or than society has conditioned curlies to think.

Our curl experts can help you and when in doubt or too far from our Sydney flagship salon, think of balancing hydration + strength, and you will not go wrong until your next curl specialist visit. Use our trusted product ranges from Embrace For Every Curl, TGIN and Jane Carter Solutions. Your locks will thrive without a shadow of doubt.


Looking to revert back to your natural texture? Walking away from constant heat, constant keratin and or chemically straightening your hair? Aka transitioning? We have got you and best of all, you have options.

Option 1: Is to either go for the “BIG chop” (just cutting off all the straightened hair in one go).


Option 2: For a less drastic approach, if you are unsure, your straightened hair can be trimmed over weeks or months. This season is seen through with a lot of protective styling (braids, twists, weaves, cornrows, curly updo’s), tying up of hair, headscarves and hats.

Either way our team at Rumbie & Co will be more than happy to guide around how to best transition.
