In a lot of ways, prom is a regular move…
Straight and beautiful hairstyles are always trendy – and this current season makes no difference. No matter what your astrological sign, what your race, what your skin type or style even are, smooth, straight hair looks fabulous on every lady. Lionesse has some great secrets to share with you on how you can have the most super smooth and straight hair possible.
Use a Hair Serum
Hair serums not only add shine, manageability, softness, and heat protection to the hair, but they also help to make the hair silky and smooth when you are flat ironing the hair or after heat styling. Be sure to opt for a great hair serum that contains anti-humidity properties to ward off frizz during the hot summer months.
Flat ironing your hair is one of the best ways to get super smooth and silky hair. Be sure to always use a high quality flat iron that is made from ceramic, tourmaline, or titanium, and use a heat protection spray along with your flat iron to protect from any damage heat styling may cause. Always use the recommended heat setting for your hair to avoid burning your hair or causing any undue damage as well.
Deep conditioning your hair once per week will allow your hair to absorb the moisture it needs to look it’s best. It will add shine, manageability, and smoothness to your hair, which in turn will help to provide you with a better style.
Blow outs are a great way to have perfectly smooth hair. Running heat through the hair with a paddle or round brush helps to tame down frizziness, wards off static, and helps the hair to become shiny and straight when done right. Don’t apply heat directly to the hair with a blow dryer – be sure to hold the dryer about 6 inches from the hair itself – and always use heat protection when blow drying as well.
Use Boar Bristle Brushes
Whenever you reach for a brush to take to your tresses, opt for a boar bristle brush. They may not feel as though they’re doing much, but they are capable of brushing right through knots and tangles gently and effectively, and they leave your hair feeling absolutely smooth, gorgeous, and silky. They will also keep a straightened style straight without adding frizz or static to the hair. When using them to smooth hair into a ponytail, you will likely have the smoothest, silkiest ponytail imaginable with this type of brush – and they add a great deal of shine.
Don’t Overwash Your Hair
When you wash your hair too often, you are stripping the hair of its natural oils which are necessary for healthy, shiny hair. Opt for washing your hair 2 times per week if you are able, rather than every day or even every other day. This doesn’t apply if you have exceptionally oily or greasy hair – by all means, you can opt for hair washing as often as you like. For those with dry hair, opt for a moisturizing shampoo and wash your hair once per week. This will help your hair to remain shiny, and give you the best straightening experience possible. You can also opt for a product which has built in tourmaline and straightening help, to provide you with a flatter style that lasts longer.
