How To Achieve Straight Silky Hair

Learn how to achieve straight silky hair every day of the week

Straight silky hair is something that many women want but often have difficulty achieving. One important tip is to wash and condition your hair with sulfate free products. Products that contain sulfates and alcohols as the ingredients are not very good for your hair. By avoiding these types of ingredients, you will prevent your hair from becoming frizzy and damaged. There are many straightening shampoos that are meant to smooth and flatten the hair strands which you can wash and condition your hair with prior to drying. Applying a heat protectant spray is another great way to maintain straight silky hair because they help protect your hair prior to heatstyling with a blowdryer or flat iron.

Prior to straightening, you should blow dry your hair in an effort to make each strand as smooth as possible. This is essential for straight silky hair because when you go over each strand with your flat iron, it will further straighten and seal in your cuticles for a longer lasting sleek look. Use a round brush to comb each section down as you angle the blowdryer so that it hits the hair section being pulled by the brush. Section off hair when blowdrying and straightening in order to get to each hair more effectively, and slowly flat iron each section, starting at the top of your head and going all the way down to the tip. Check out 12 Best Flat Irons for a guide to some of the best flat irons for your hair.
