10 tips to follow for long-lasting straight hair

Simply go through the tips below on how to maintain your straight hair appearance in public.

  1. Make sure that your hair totally dry from roots to ends before you use a flattening iron to straighten your hair.
  2. Protect your hair by applying high quality hair protectant to your hair and keep the proteins in the cuticle of your hair. Losing the nutrients will lead to hair damage and breakage.

  5. Use your hands to detangle your hair and comb to smooth it out.

  8. For added assurance, use a mild hair spray to keep your hair together for a long time.
  9. Travel straighteners are perfect for emergencies.
  10. Never forget to check your hair in the mirror after a few hours, to make that your hair is still straight.
