Find out how 2 easy tips can help you get a great result every time you style your hair straight.

Straight Hairstyle Preparation Tips
Wash and style with the right products. To get your locks super straight and to keep them that way, prep your hair with a shampoo and conditioner that is designed to promote straight strands. They have special ingredients that regular shampoos don’t have to help coat your hair and make it flatter and easier to style straight. After washing and towel drying your hair, boost your straightening power by distributing a smoothing serum through your locks.
To get straight hair, you’ll need to get dry hair. If you want your hair strands to be shiny and sleek then blow-dry on a low-heat to get all the excess water out, attach a concentrator nozzle to your blow-dryer and grab your paddle or round hair brush and start styling your locks straight. If you’re using a straightening iron to straighten your hair, either let you locks air-dry for as long as possible or rough dry with a blow-dryer first. The drier you hair strands are before you start working on them, the better your end result.
And there you have it! 2 easy tips that will get your hair prepared in the best way possible to help you create any straight hairstyle. They might be simple and too easy to believe, but they will make a huge difference to your end result, and are a cinch to carry out!
