Hair Straightening – How to Keep Curly, Thick & Coarse Hair Straight

April 4, 2008 by · Leave a Comment 

For those with curly, thick and/or coarse hair, straightening your hair is one thing, keeping it straight is another. By following a few professional hair style tips you can help manage curls and get straightness that lasts much longer.

1. Use a relaxing shampoo & conditioner.

2. Rinse hair with cool water to seal the hairs cuticle and fight frizz which is common with curly hair.

3. Choose a heat protectant styling aid that also works to relax the hair such as a straightening balm or relaxing cream.

4. Dry hair straight using a blow dryer with a concentrator nozzle, a paddle brush and do 2″ sections at a time, starting with the bottom layer of hair and working your way up to the top layers of hair.

5. Make sure hair is completely dry by going over your hair with your dryer on the cool air setting. If hair feels cold or damp to the touch then it is not completely dry. For the best results you want your hair to be completely dry.

6. Section hair into layers from bottom to top and starting with the bottom use a professional hair straightener to straighten 1-2″ sections at a time. Go slow and on the highest heat setting recommended for your hair type. Repeat until entire head of hair is straight.Touch up any sections that are not completely straight.

7. Once hair is straight, finish the style with a anti frizz shine serum, finishing spray or hair spray.

Just wanted to share a few photos I received from a couple of happy customers of the Karmin Titanium Hair Iron.

I am so happy with this hair iron! I have very frizzy, curly, fine and thin hair and was worried that straightening it wouldn’t help it much but it worked better than expected! I am very impressed and really like how it adds shine and makes the overall appearance of my hair look healthier. Thank you! S.S.

P.S. Excellent Customer Service and Fast Shipping!

This Flat Iron is fantastic! I have long layered hair and like to slightly curl the ends of my hair under to show off the layers. The Karmin makes my hair so smooth and shiny, it looks fabulous and NO frizz!! Thanks!!!!

I never thought I could ever actually have straight hair, it has always been extremely curly and frizzy. I was using so much gel my hair was getting so dried out and looked horrible. I bought the Karmin Hair Straightening Iron and I can’t believe how much better my hair looks, it actually looks healthier! It is so soft and best of all, no more hair gel! Thanks My Hair Styling Tools for introducing me to my new best friend!

Hello, and thank you, thank you for inspiring me to style my hair on a regular basis! I have very long hair, it is fine but I do have a lot of it. My hair has a natural wave to it that I never became accustomed to. I have tried many different hair straighteners but was never satisfied with final results. I pondered the thought of actually investing more money on “just one more hair straightener!” After reading all positive reviews on your hair iron I thought why not! Not only was I not expecting to receive it in such a short time but when I used it, I thought I would cry. I couldn’t stop looking in the mirror and running my fingers through my hair. I am so incredibly pleased with my purchase that thanking you just doesn’t seem like enough…but THANK YOU…..
