Flawlessly Straight Hair: Straightening Tips for All Hair Types
Flawlessly straight hair is popular in todays leadingbeauty circles. Yet straightening curly, frizzy, or downright unruly hair into perfectly straight tresses can be achallenge. Read on to discover straightening tips for even the most stubborn locks.
Following shampoo and conditioner, apply a product like Frederic Fekkais Ironless Silky Straight Serum on your hair, focusing on the tips. Next use clips to separate your hair into sections. Blow-dry each of these sections inturn, beginning in the top, front layers and working to the back, bottom sections. To manage and smooth each segment, use a high-quality, round, natural bristle brush. Philip B. offers several excellent brushes. To maximizesmoothness, clip the filter attachment onto your hairdryer. Finally, the direction you aim matters; point the nozzle of the dryer down the shaft, from the root toward the tips. Focus on each section until it is completely dry.
This task can seem to take an eternity, unless you have afast-working hairdryer. T3s Featherweight model is ideal -it uses infrared heat to boost manageability and shine, all while drying hair up to 60% faster.
If your tresses arent straight after blow-drying, youll have to use a straightening iron. Re-clip dry locks into sections. Starting at the back of the head, gently guide the straightening iron down each section. Avoid applying the iron twice to the same segment. If this routine desiccates your hair, try a higher-end straightening iron like made by T3. This incredible tool uses negative ions to enclose each hair cuticle in protective moisture.
Heres another timesaving tip: skip the blow-drying step by using a steam straightener - again, T3s ManeTamer model is exceptional. Steam technology allows such straighteners to be applied to damp hair.
Over time, heat can cause hair to become dull, brittle, andtough to manage. So, protect your hair with a product likeOscar Blandis Pronto Dry Heat Protect Spray. Oscar Blandi has created a spray that defends hair against 450-degreeheat. The sprays keratin proteins also work to protect and nourish hair. Just spritz this Oscar Blandi innovation ontoeach segment of hair before applying any heated tool, and enjoy radiantly healthy tresses despite the heat.
Its also wise to get into the habit of applying a weekly oiltreatment. Philip B.s Rejuvenating Oil will do an especially good job of augmenting the oil naturally produced by the scalp.

They applied natural concoctions toencourage straightness, and you can too, with our Lemon-Coconut Milk Creme.
