Straight hair is always fashionable and popular and it can be a surprisingly easy look to get. You don’t have to pay salon prices to get straight hair as there are some great and easy ways to get it in your own home.
Straight hair has a tendency to frizz once it’s exposed to the elements. Moisture, humidity and bad weather seem to make it impossible to keep your hair straight. Those of us with thick hair know only too well the issue of frizz as the structure of thick hair has up to two times more cells, causing it to frizz more than thin hair.
All is not lost though as there are many ways to keep your hair under your control.
The first step is to make sure your hair is healthy. This begins with eating a balanced diet and getting plenty of rest. After this, regularly using conditioner after you shampoo is important as it will replace some lost moisture to your hair. Always rinse your hair with cold water after you finish as this will help to close the hair follicle making it less prone to damage.
Everyone’s hair is different, so to get straight hair, it is recommended to experiment with different methods before you find the one that’s most suited to you.
What hair straightener to choose?
We recommend ceramic hair straighteners as they reduce frizz, prevent split-ends, and help to protect your hair from heat damage. For those with short hair consider a smaller width straightener and use a larger width one if you have long hair.
Straightening your hair without heat
We are probably all aware that regular use of hair straighteners can result in damage to your hair. Luckily, there are alternatives to straightening your hair with heat. Certain products are specially made to help you get straight hair including shampoos, conditioners, hairsprays, hair serums, and smoothing milks. Ask your hairdresser to recommend some.
