How To Straighten Your Hair At Home Using A Flat Iron

Most of the women who have curly hair want it to be straight and those with straight hair want it to be curly and that’s something normal. One of the easiest ways to straighten your hair is using straightening irons, /flat irons as they are also called/. They use heat to straighten the hair and are made of metal or ceramic. The ceramic strengtheners are less damaging than the metal ones, because they evolve steam that add moisture to the hair, generate negative ions and straighten hair quickly and effectively. The ceramic irons are preferable to the metal ones as the heat is less damaging and cause no pulling on hair. Ceramic plates conduct heat fast and retain it so you can achieve optimum styling control and create poker straight hair. The infrared heat will seal in your hairs natural oils, moisture and color so your tresses look shiny and healthy no matter what style you choose.

How to straighten your hair using a flat iron:

Step 1: Wash your hair

Wash your hair using a mild shampoo appropriate for your hair type. Shampoo gently. Wet the hair thoroughly with water that isn’t too hot. Rinse with cool water to remove all traces of shampoo residue.

Step 2: Apply hair mask

Apply a small amount of hair mask to wet hair, concentrating on ends. Let it penetrate deeply for a few minutes and rinse thoroughly. The hair mask will nourish and replenish your hair leaving it improved texture, more body, easy to manage and with luminous shine. In my opinion a hair mask should always be applied before straightening hair with flat iron or chemicals.

Step 3: Condition hair

Use a conditioner following the shampoo. It’s essential because heat damaged hair needs more moisture. A conditioner will coat the hair shaft with a thin film that smoothes down roughened cells and fills in the uneven surface. A good conditioner will feed the root and repair structure to prevent dry, breaking, frizzy and splitting.

Step 4: Towel wet hair

Towel wet hair to remove as much water as possible. Comb wet hair with a wide toothed comb but never brush wet hair and never rub it. Carefully part and separate your hair into sections.

Step 5: Apply a heat protection spray

Applying heat-protection spray is essential, especially when straightening. These sprays are specifically designed to protect the hair from the heat when using straightening irons or curling irons and act as a barrier between hair and heat. Always spray the product before straightening your hair. Some of these products also help to straighten the hair, retain the moisture in your hair and protect hair from splitting. Put small amount of the product into your palms and smooth lightly over the tops of your hair.

Step 6: Blow-dry your hair

Blow-dry your hair thoroughly. Hold the hair sections out taut and point the hairdryer down to dry it. Use the brush to pull the sections of your hair straight at the ends. Never expose one section of your hair to intense, sustained heat from the hairdryer.

Step 7: Start ironing

Start ironing smaller portions, working your way up the head and set the right temperature for your hair. Apply even pressure and slowly move the iron down your hair. Avoid direct scalp contact to avoid potential burns and never pass the same section more than two times. Make sure you maintain an even, gentle tension on your hair.

Step 8: Apply styling product

At the end apply hair serum, hair gel or hair wax but make sure you apply it evenly otherwise your hair may look lank and greasy. Use your fingers to carefully arrange your hair. The product will maintain your hair in the desired position and will help it last longer.

Do It Yourself???

Do it yourself, often referred to by the acronym "DIY," is a term used by various communities that focus on people creating things for themselves without the aid of paid professionals. Many DIY subcultures explicitly critique consumer culture, which emphasizes that the solution to our needs is to purchase things, and instead encourage people to take technologies into their own hands.
