    straightening straight hair

    Advertisements
    When I went to the salon last to get a trim, the girl striaghtened my already straight hair. I thought it was silly until I saw the results - my hair looked fantastic. So last week, I bought a straightener and did it myself. It did look nice, but not nearly as gorgeous as when the hairstylist did it.

    Any tips?
    back with the love of my life

    Did you put anything in the hair? Like a leave in treatment?

    What type of plates are on the straightener?

    She probably had a fantastic straightener, used product, and your hair had just been cut so that helped a lot as well. What about it didn't look as good?

    depends on your straightener and also the products you use! What were some of the differences?

    I use serum (oil) on the tips of my hair when I straighten it. I also use antisnap by redkin. I have curly hair though.

    my girl told me to use a brush in front of the straightner and follow the brush down the hair, that way the hair is pulled in front of the straightner.Also make sure to use a good straightner.

    I don't use any products and have the croc straightener, it has titanium plates so it won't ruin your hair and you dont have to buy products to put in your hair

    I bought the stuff that they use in my hair and that made a huge difference. It's still not as perfect, but also I know that my straightener isn't as good, and I'm just not as good at it. When my mom or best friend do it, it looks better. The more you do it the better you'll get, too. The shampoo and conditioner I use make a big difference as well.
