Many people claim that a hair straightener is a pure evil. Ok, but what should I do if my wisps are never smooth and I really love sleek straight hair? Discover the best methods of making your hair silky smooth without the use of a hair straightener.
Nobody will deny that hair straightening with high temperature on a daily basis is the shortest way to damaging the hair completely. A straightener leaves the hair dull, dehydrated, sometimes burns the hair and always damages it. More and more women look for alternatives to this method. Is it even possible to have smooth and straight hair without using the hot tool? Yes, of course! Not one, but there are a few reliable methods that bring tremendous effects.
Straightening when blowdrying
It is probably the easiest way to straighten your hair, it is also referred to as ‘brushing’. It is the most common method used at the salon. What’s it like? The hair is being straightened while blowdrying with the use of a round brush, strand by strand. Of course, you must have a minimum set of manual skills to avoid pulling and tanging. It is very important that the blow dryer is set to cool air, otherwise, the hair structure can be damaged.
Straightening with hair oiling
The second effective method is using the properties of natural oils. They contain essential ingredients that leave the hair soft, shiny and resilient. Perfectly nourished and moisturised hair are less prone to frizz and definitely smoother. A good oil used before blowdrying will also help reduce the harmful effects of high temperature. Such thermal protection and smoothness are noticeable right after the first hair oiling (it can be an overnight treatment or hot oil treatment).
