If you are looking for the ultimate straight hair, you have to start in the shower, you have to use shampoo and conditioner that are meant for straight, smooth, silky hair. Lets be real, no shampoo or conditioner can actually make your hair straight but they can certainly smooth out your hair by providing moisture. For people who have really dry and damaged hair, they need to use products that are hydrating and able to smooth out the hair. According to a hair stylist at Sabs,
“For people who have dry and damaged hair, we shampoo their hair and condition with a mask, we add few drops of serum in the mask, apply and leave it on for few minutes. After rinsing, we blow dry and apply more serum, then blow dry and straighten with iron.”
- Rough dry your hair with a blowdryer

- Straighten but Don’t use extremely high temperature
Most straighteners come with the heat setting of 450 degree but it is usually for in salon, professional keratin treatment. You are not supposed to use such high temperatures at home, because it causes long term damage. Keep the temperature between 300 to 350 degree.
- Use a finishing product
If you have frizzy hair, using a finishing product after straightening is a good idea. A hair spray that can hold the hair together can be used but make sure that you let the hair cool down, before spraying.
