Do's and Dont's for Straight Hairs

Here are some things that help in maintaining a sleek, beautiful straight hair :).
  • Do work on thin sections of hair. Grabbing too thick sections is not advisable. If the heat can't penetrate, your hair won't get completely smooth. The thicker and curlier yours is, the thinner the amount you should tackle at once.
  • Don't flat-iron damp hair. This can burn your hair and change the texture, making it rough and dry, except if you're using one of the new wet-to-dry irons.
  • Do the back of the hair the easy way. Make a middle back part and flop a side over each shoulder-you'll actually be able to see what you're doing.
  • Don't turn the heat up too high. So many flat irons these days come with adjustable heat, but higher isn't always better. If you have fine hair, 250 degrees is all you need; if your hair's coarse, you could go higher.
How To Use a Flat Iron (without killing your hair.)

Step 1: Apply styling stuff to damp hair, dry it and clip up sections one at a time. Curly? Run a paddle brush down hair and follow with the iron. Wavy? Just use the flat iron. To prevent fry-age, don't linger in one spot.

Step 2: Lift roots and hairspray a little bit.
