How to Keep Your Hair Straight

1. Conditioner

I would spend double the time I normally would on straightening my hair to make sure it was pin straight and even then, the second I would step outside my hair would poof up and become frizzy and wavy.

BUT, once I started using a lot of conditioner and letting it sit in my hair for at least a few minutes, I noticed such a big difference in how my hair reacted outdoors.

After using conditioner my hair was less frizzy and stayed straight for much longer. This is because conditioner adds hydration and moisture to your hair and helps eliminate frizz since your hair gets frizzy because its dry and lacking moisture.

4. Brush Your Hair While Straightening it

When I was trying to figure out how to keep my hair straight after straightening it, I tried this tip randomly and was shocked by how well it worked.

All you need to do is hold your hair brush in one hand and straightener in the other, and while your straightening your hair, hold your brush over the straightener and brush it immediately before – your hair will be pin straight and last so much longer.

This tip is a must for straight hair!

When you’re straightening your hair, if you pay special attention to your roots and ends, then your hair will look straighter and stay straight for much longer because you have sealed both your ends and roots so humidity is less likely to be a problem, which means no frizz and straight for longer!

When you’re straightening your hair, go over your roots a few more times than the rest of your hair and the same goes for your ends.

When you’re applying products like hair oils and serums, rub the ends thoroughly and this will help your hair stay shiny, frizz free, and straight.

Using hair serums that specifically target humidity and frizz are great for keeping your hair straight because the serums will lock moisture into your hair and block and humidity from getting to your hair and making it frizzy and less straight.
