Hair Care: How To Straighten Hair Like a Pro
Follow these hair care tips to achieve perfectly smooth, straight, shiny hair every time you flat iron your hair
Step 1: Start by clipping your blow dried hair into manageable sections -- the thicker your hair, the more sections you should create. Starting on the bottom half of your head, near the nape of your neck, grab a half-an-inch to two-inch section of hair.
Step 2: Starting half-an-inch down from your roots (this will help your hair maintain some volume), quickly smooth the iron down the hair shaft "making sure to move at a steady pace," advises Moticka. Continue this until you have straightened the bottom and mid-sections of your head.
Step 3: For the final sections near the crown of your head, lift hair off your scalp and get the iron as close to your roots as possible, pressing firmly while drawing the iron straight outward from your head to achieve a flat, smooth finish, says Moticka.
Step 4: Mist with shine spray.
