How to Get Sleek, Straight Hair in 6 Easy Steps

If you have been blessed with straight sleek hair, then that’s brilliant. Around 45% of European people have straight hair, however; not everyone is so fortunate.

If you naturally have curly or wavy hair, it can be difficult to fight the frizz. Many women embrace their natural textures and that’s great but no-one should walk around with an out-of-control mane.

Here are six steps to achieving smooth, silky tresses:

STEP #1: Prime your hair

Every girl knows that applying primer before putting on makeup is essential. The same pertains to your hair. After gently towel drying your hair so it isn’t dripping wet, apply a styling mouse. Use gel for a stronger hold.

STEP #2: Be patient

Too many people reach for the hairdryer as soon as they step out of the shower. This is a big mistake. Let your hair absorb the natural nutrients and air dry for a bit first, until it is damp. Besides, if your hair is soaking wet it will just take longer to blow dry.

STEP #3: Find the Hair line

If your parting has altered during your shower, use a comb to put it back in place. Apply a heat defence spray before blow drying. If you have a fringe, comb it forward and hold it tightly whilst you blow dry from the roots to the tip. Then you can blow dry the rest of the hair until it is fully dry, starting at the roots.

STEP #4: Divide hair into sections

Now that your hair is completely dry, make sure all knots have been detangled. Divide the hair into four sections, separating the top and bottom layers. Use some hair clips to pin them in place.




Leave one section loose and using a large round brush, blow dry it by pulling the hair taut toward the floor and rolling it under the brush. Keep the hairdryer’s nozzle a few inches from the brush.

Repeat with the other three sections.

STEP #5: Straightening time

Use some straightening irons to complete the overall look. Take small sections of your hair, start at the roots, and work your way down to the tips.

STEP #6: Finishing serum

Apply some finishing cream or serum to the hair to combat any flyaways. Don’t use too much though because it will just make the hair look greasy.

So there you have it – six simple steps to getting silky, straight hair.
