Straight Talking About Straight Hair

We all want to keep that sleek hair look all day. It takes a while to create and looks awesome, then within minutes it is gone. Your hair is no longer sleek and straight and you’re wishing you spent the extra 30 minutes in bed this morning, instead of spending ages straightening your hair.

We have all been there!

However, there are ways that you can have sleek and straight hair all day, even if your hair is naturally wavy. We have put together some top tips from the hair experts to help you achieve your straight and sleek hair goals all day long.

  • Use a smoothing or anti-frizz shampoo and conditioner. This will help reduce the frizz and prepare your hair for a straighter style.
  • Apply an anti-frizz oil or taming balm to your hair when your hair is still wet. Do this before blow drying your hair and you will quickly see how your hair looks straighter already, and it will look sleeker too.
  • Take a paddle brush in one hand and have your blow dryer in the other hand. Split your hair into sections and blow dry each section between the flat paddle brush and the nozzle of the blow drier. This technique helps to smooth down cuticle layers as your hair dries; resulting in a frizz free look.
  • Once you have dried all the sections with your blow drier, grab your straightening irons. Use these to go through your hair in small sections to gently smooth the hair straight. We recommend that you use a lower heat on the straightening irons as this will reduce the risk of heat damage to your hair.
  • The final tip is to finish by sealing your hair with a polish cream or serum, followed by some hairspray to protect your hair from any humidity during the day.
