Step 2 - Use an extra absorbent towel to dry your hair as much as possible. Your hair should be damp, but not dripping.

Comb your hair

Step 3 - Remove all of the tangles from your hair with a wide-tooth comb. Start from the bottom of your strands and work your way up, remembering to be gentle.

Apply straightening products

Step 4 - Apply a small amount of straightening balm to your palms and rub together to heat the product up before raking your hands through your hair. It's also a good idea to use a heat protection product and any other styling products which may help to speed up the drying process and style your hair faster.
