Can’t seem to get “salon straight” hair when you dry it yourself at home? Use these hair care tips in between salon visits and you can have the same straight look right at home.
“Salon Straight” At Home
We all have had the experience of losing the salon look when we try to maintain our hair style at home. There must be a secret code that only stylists know for how to dry the hair straight and be frizz-free and full of shine. Whether your hair style is a simple long and straight look like Kim Kardashian or a layered style like Jennifer Aniston, drying the hair is the basic foundation for styling. There is no secret code. Below are some tips on how todry hair straight using the proper tools, techniques and hair products. You can do this at home.
Tools to Treasure
When it comes to drying hair, the tools you use will play a huge part in getting the hair as straight as you desire. Not all styling tools are created equal. A more expensive hair dryer or other styling tool may not always be better if it doesn’t do its job properly. A hair dryer should have at least 1800 watts with different heat settings and attachments to accommodate your personal hair care regimen. When stylists are drying the hair they often use a blow dryer with a brush. For straight hair, use a paddle brush.
Perfect Potions for Pin-Straight Hair
There are a number of hair straightening serums, lotions and potions to enhance and also protect your hair when using heat. Your stylist can help point you in the right direction and give you suggestions on products used in the salon and available for purchase.
When drying hair straight, keep in mind that the texture and length will also determine which techniques, tools and products should be used. For long hair, try sectioning the hair and working from the back of the head to the front to optimize your hair drying experience. Another trick is to end each section with a cool blast of air. This helps to avoid potential “poof” from perspiration during the drying process.
So there you have it, straight to the point.
