Washing Your Hair and Keeping it Straight!
A beautifully straight hair spells elegance and poise at the same time. It is very easy to style, especially when slicking it back into a very sexy ponytail of wearing it in a glamorous Cleopatra Bob. Think Katy Perry, Kelly Rowland and Jessica Alba. These are women who wear their tresses straight and own it!
What may concern us about straight hair is how to keep it from frizzing and maintaining the sleek and chic look that was acquired after a lot of pressing, blow drying, and anything else that we use to train our mane. Mother Nature is not always our best friend when she challenges us with weather conditions that are not so favorable to straight hair.
Here are a few suggestions to help keep your lovely locks neat and manageable no matter the conditions.
First, be sure that you know what types of shampoos are best suited for your hair. It can easily be determined by speaking with your stylist or reading the labels. Some products will tell you whether it is meant for oily or dry hair. Choose the one that best suits your needs.
Massage your scalp and lift the dirt that has collected. Thoroughly wash your hair from roots to ends and rinse completely. You don’t want residue to develop into dandruff and dry your hair out. Yuck!
Conditioning your hair
After shampooing, use a natural conditioner. Just like shampoos, there also different kinds of conditioners made for a particular hair type. Apply a generous amount from the roots to the tips of your hair and leave it in for a few minutes before finally rinsing it.
Drying your hair
After rinsing the conditioner, dry your hair. If you’re anything like me, you love to dry with a blow dryer, but you must not overdo it. The very best way to dry straight hair is to let it air dry. Trust me, you’ll love the results.
Style and Profile
When the hair is dried, get ready to style by first using a fine toothed comb to flatten the hair. You can use hair polish and serums to control it easily. The secret to keeping the hair really straight is to just let it hang. If using a flat iron, be sure to use medium heat to avoid ruining your ends.
This is a simple and easy guide that will have you looking like a million bucks!
