Are you speaking of Thermal reconditioning?

Chemical hair straightening/ thermal reconditioning is also known widely in Asia as Rebonding. Basically chemicals breakdown the bond structure in your hair and "rebond" them straight. Chemical damage is similar to having a perm. Can work well on very curly hair but it is very important to go to an experience hairstylist since results depend highly on the stylist's skills. I rebonded my waist length dry "slightly wavy/straight" asian hair with great results. Hair is actually smoother. Saloon recommended protein treatment before and after rebonding process since my hair was dry. Note that results on coloured hair vary so seek a reputable and recommended hairstylist advice.

if you're talking about thermal reconditioning then no it won't look like you just combed out your hair it will look completely straight. if you're talking about just a relaxer than yes it might. In terms of damage, if you go to somebody good then it won't kill your hair.
