This article is all about how to straighten hair. If you are looking for some great tips on how to get your hair straight and sleek you have come to the right place. When you want to straighten your hair there are some questions that you should ask yourself. First of all what type of flat iron works best? Second, should you use a hair product when straightening your hair? Also you might ask the best way to straighten your hair.
When you get ready to straighten your hair it is important that you have a really good flat iron to do it with. There are many different sites online that review products. Check these sites out for some great information on different brands of flat irons.
More often than not you are going to find that the more expensive flat iron is going to be the best. This is because the flat irons that you buy at your local discount store simply are not made to the standard of quality that the more expensive flat irons are. Regardless you want your iron to reach a temperature of at least 400 degrees. Ceramic plates are very nice to have as well.
I rarely ever use a product for hair straightening on my hair. This is because I find that they just don’t make much of a difference on my curly hair. It’s up to you though. You might find a straightening balm that you love at your local drug store. This is fine as well and these products are not going to hurt your hair; however I’ll stick with my trusty bottle of hairspray.
In my opinion the best way to straighten hair is to do it in very small sections. Get yourself a hair clip that is capable of holding up all of your hair. Imagine about 10 horizontal lines across your head. Pull up all of the hair except one tenth in the back. This is going to be your first section.
I usually start with about a third of the section. Spray it with hair spray and quickly slide your flat iron form your head to the ends of your hair. Repeat this on the other two thirds of the section. Now you will want to bring down the next section of hair. If you find that your hair is not as straight as you like, pull the flat iron through each section a second or third time.
My hair is very coarse so I find it best if I don’t wash it every day. The oils in your hair can help your hair to feel less coarse. It is also helpful to save some time as I don’t have to restraighten my hair every day. In my opinion you only need to wash your hair every other day. I have even heard of some people that only wash their hair every 3 days. This is a personal preference though and you should do what works best for you.
