Try some of these tips for straightening wavy hair

Straightening wavy hair is no simple task, but that does not mean that it cannot be done. All you will need are the right products, the best tools and of course, the patience and motivation to do it right. The first step when it comes to straightening wavy hair is to use a good smoothing balm or straightening spray. The best time to apply these products are while your hair is still wet from the shower, as your hair follicle is still open and able to absorb products. Straightening wavy hair can be a lot more difficult when your cuticle is sealed and the proper products have not been applied, as dry hair is more prone to frizz.

When straightening wavy hair, you want to use a good blow dryer in order to smooth out the cuticle, then finish with a flat iron for a super sleek look. When blowdrying hair, point downwards so that the hot air is pushing down in the same direction that the hair grows, otherwise you will create more frizz. When flat ironing hair, carefully guide the flat iron all the way down to the tip, doing so in a slow motion so that all sections of hair receive ample heat and pressure.
