Why Won’t My Hair Stay Straight?

January 21, 2012 by · Leave a Comment 

Ever had that moment where your hair looks great and perfectly straight? You can tell this will be a great day but once you step outside and it gains back its frizz and curly texture. Your day can ruined with one step into the heat and humidity of outdoors. Now you must go back in and re straighten it. But wait, you’re already late for work and have no time to perfect the frizz of a mess that has been created!

If this does happen repeatedly to you, it may be time to rethink your straightening process. You may be asking your stylist why your hair isn’t staying straight as the day goes on. She may say the cause of this is because it is being exposed to an excessive amount of moisture after you style. What you can do to help prevent the return of the messy hair is use a new method of styling.

Try applying your thermal spray first and then wait a few minutes before you straighten. This time slot is to allow time for you to apply a mousse to your hair that will help lock in the necessary amount of moisture and seal out all moisture you won’t need the rest of the day. This is a great way that celebrities prevent disasters on the red carpet and now so can you!

Begin by scooping some mud or mousse out of the container and spreading it evenly throughout the ends of the hair. One thing you need to be careful is the amount of product you apply to the hair. Since it is such a thick material that you are putting in your hair, it can give your hair a greasy look if you’re not careful. You’re looking for a shiny texture and look, not slippery and greasy. The perfect amount to use is about the size of a pea and if it doesn’t look too greasy, you can add small amounts no bigger than a dime.

Locking in moisture doesn’t have to be hard when you straighten your hair. You can complete the task in a matter of twenty minutes and still look like a million bucks. Amounts of humidity exposure and mousse to retain shine and straight locks are the main things to be concerned with. As long as you keep those two things in mind your hair should look great everyday.

This dryer attachment is one of the most popular attachments as its main purpose is to add volume and define curls without frizzing up hair. It allows your hair dryer to give a softer blast of air instead of blowing your hair all over the place like a hair dryer will do with out an attachment.

A diffuser is best used on a lower heat setting, and although it makes for a bit of a slower process the end results can be very rewarding. A more defined curl, less frizz and softer looking curls or waves. The fingers on the diffuser work to help separate the hairs from each other for a fuller more voluminous effect.
