A long, straight hair is one of the most coveted, classic hairstyles in the industry. Whether you have naturally straight hair or curly locks, it is the envy of all women! But straightening your hair (especially if you are born with curly hair) can be frustrating sometimes. Hair can have the natural tendency to flyaway at the ends, which makes it difficult to maintain that straight hair that has become the poster look of most shampoo ads.
The advent of various hair styling products had aided in the process of achieving straight hair that lasts. Here are some of the tricks you can try.
Use straightening lotions or creams. This is the simplest and easiest way to achieve straight hair and keep it that way for hours! Most straightening hair styling products are made with silicone that coats each hair strand to keep it from curling up. Make sure to follow it up with a blow dryer to ensure that the results will last.
Straighten with flat iron. Another product designed to keep your locks straight is the flat iron (aka straightening iron). This, however, won’t work on its own – you have to use the right straightening crème and blow dryer so your locks would easily comply. Investing in the right kind of flat iron is also crucial. A good flat iron is made with either ceramic or tourmaline plate and adjustable heat settings. Also, use your own discretion when choosing the size of the plate, depending on the thickness of your hair.
Get a blowout. This procedure is offered by plenty of salons these days, which should not be a problem anymore for those seeking out straight hair. A professional blowout, however, can cost you a hefty amount. Therefore, make this only your last resort when you want to achieve a lasting straightness that comes with a professional result too.
