The Magic Of A Straightener

March 18, 2012 by · Leave a Comment 

Every morning when I get out of the shower, my hair is an absolute frizz-ball mess. It’s not fun having to go through the day with your hair sticking out every which way because it contains so much frizz. If you have this exact feeling every morning too then you are completely normal. The only way to help soothe some of these crazy ends in your hair is to apply some heat. When I say heat I don’t mean you should blow dry your hair. Blow drying is so bad for this cause because it just creates even more frizz for you to have to deal with in the end.

One of the easiest ways to begin your process of removing frizz is to let your hair air dry. I do this almost every time that I shower and it never fails. Some say it leaves their hair feeling snarly but if you brush it once before you get out of the shower and then pull back your bangs and let the rest of the hair hang, it dries so much faster. The less bulk you have in your hair, the easier and less time it will take.

After your hair is completely dry, you can apply your pre-straightening helper. This would be the heat protectant spray that helps prevent so much split end outcome from hair straightening everyday. Even if you don’t straighten everyday, it still helps and should be used thoroughly anytime you use a straightener. Back in the day, women didn’t have any kind of protection from their curlers or curling irons so take advantage of these kinds of sprays to keep your hair healthy.

This next step is where all the magic begins to transform your stringy, frizzy hair into a lovely and lengthened style. Turn your iron onto the according heat setting for your kind of hair and as you begin to straighten, pull the iron through the section of hair in a vertical motion. This helps prevent crease lines that show where the straightener began in your hair. As you pull it through the hair, notice the beauty it creates in your hair. The frizz seems to disappear and shine seems to stand out like never before.

It seems weird knowing that your hair can transform into a goddess style with just one pull-through of a straightener. It’s because of all the heat that your hair seems to tame itself and look more relaxed. Your last step should be to apply some kind of serum that will tame the frizz even more and also keep it from reappearing after being in humid air. Apply a dime sized amount to your hair and smooth it through to be sure and lock in the shine.

Getting Curls With Either Curing Irons or Hot Rollers

For women who want to add anything from tight kinky curls to loose gorgeous waves to their hair the two most popular ways to get this done is with a curling iron or a set of hot rollers. Most women prefer one method to another and really there is no real wrong answer it is a matter of which one you are most comfortable with.

Hot rollers have the advantage of creating curls in your hair where you place them and then leaving your hands free while the heat does its magic. This can help you speed up the styling process and your probably already hectic morning. Of course with hot rollers you do sacrifice some control but they do produce consistent curls.

Curling irons offer more versatility than hot rollers in creating various types of curls as well as the placement in the hair. With a ceramic curling iron you can easily just curl the ends of your hair or add a few simple loose curls throughout your hair for a look with more volume. There is no better way to curl the size and shape of a curl in your hair than with a curling iron.
