Getting straight hair without going crazy may be easier than it seems. Blufashion provides you with a foolproof guide on how to straighten your hair and keep it straight throughout the day.

Long, sleek, shiny, straight hair: the new hair trend from Catwalk, but it’s not that easy to achieve in everyday life (unless you are one of those lucky girls with spaghetti-straight hair naturally).

So, what can we do to achieve that perfect parted hair so covetable on the catwalks? It’s important to start from the beginning, under the shower, and continue with the process until you are ready to leave the house. So here’s a guide on how to achieve that super straight, glossy hair we all desire so much.

Under the shower

Let’s start with the right kind of product: shampoo and conditioner with smoothing ingredients, so take care to read the label and the items in it. After the shampoo, smooth in the conditioner and brush through gently with a comb. Now, pay attention: After rinsing, avoid towel drying like crazy. It will create a natural curl or wave, but be kind instead. Try, for example, Towel for hair in Aquitex, an innovative fabric woven from ultra-fine fibers to create a lightweight material with superior water-wicking capabilities that is gentle on your hair.

The blowdryer

This step is fundamental to getting a sleek finish. The secret is to keep the nozzle downwards so that the hair doesn’t get frizzy, shaking it back and forth over the head till the hair is mostly dry. Also, the kind of blowdryer we use is important. Try, for example, Sedu Icon Privé blowdryer. This professional-grade 2,300-watt ionic dryer features multiple speed and heat settings, an ion switch, a cold-shot button, two concentrator attachments, and a diffuser. It emits a powerful blast of air but is lightweight and relatively quiet.

On damp hair, try the right kind of products that may help maintain it straight as long as possible. Nectar Thermique by Kerastase allows 85% less breakage from blowdry, nourishes the hair fiber, smooths away dull and rough hair surfaces for an intense shine, and it’s an excellent leave-in care.

The best way to use it is by applying it to towel-dried hair. Detangle, but do not rinse. Blowdry, then heat style. If you have colored hair, try Pureology Super Smooth Relaxing Serum. This lightweight serum smoothes flyaways as you blow-dry while intensifying natural shine and protecting color vibrancy. This exclusive ThermalAntiFadeComplex helps provide heat-styling protection and maximizes color retention.

You need something that also protects your hair from the damaging effects of the flat-iron’s heat. The best product formula is with ceramides and shea butter that also help protect from humidity and get a glossier finish without the greasy look.

Don’t work randomly on bits of hair. By creating sections, you will easily track your work. The best thing to do is clip it into four, splitting the hair in the middle at the back and bringing it forward. It will surely save you time!
