Hair straightening can be really annoying sometime. Waking up with a messy hair is always a nightmare for girls. But hair straightening takes time and sometime more than an hour if your hair are thick and coarse. Here we will guild you how to quickly straighten your hair.
If you have time, you should straighten your hair before go to sleep so you could quickly run it through in the morning. Or you could cover your hair at night with something like a shower cap or a silky pillowcase to prevent your hair from become messy in the morning. Also remember to brush your hair often.
Step 1: Wash your hair
Clean hair always bring better result when straightening. Wash your hair with warm water then use a dry towel or a blow dry (if you use blow dry, remember to apply heat protectant to your hair) to dry your hair. If you don’t have time for this, simply use a dry shampoo.
Step 2: Turn on your hair straightener and adjust the right heat
Choose the highest heat possible because the more heat the quicker the straightening can be done. But do not over heat your hair, this can cause damage and even burn your hair. Set the heat level at low if you have a thin, fine hair. If your hair is thick and coarse set it at high heat level. And medium heat level for normal and medium hair.
Always remember to use a heat protectant before straightening your hair. Do not skip this step because a damaged hair will take months to recover and it is not worth damaging your hair just for a day with nice hair.
If you have a high quality straightener with thermal sensor, you won’t have to worry about this. For more information, visit our site to select the best hair straightener in the market.
Step 3: Section and clip up your hair
Clip up the top layers and do the long bits, then do the top layers. Take about 2’’ of hair at a time (take smaller sections if you have thicker hair). This may sound like it will take longer, but because you are doing less hair at a time it will take quicker to straighten and you will not have to go over it. The shorter layers will be quicker to straighten separately and will look better.
Also use a smoothing straightening cream or a frizz taming heat protection spray. Smoother hair is quicker and easier to straighten and keep straight.
Step 4: Brush your hair
After finish straightening, use a comb and brush all your hair together. You can use hair straightener spray to keep your hair straight for a longer period of time.
Follow these steps to get a straight and smooth hair in the quickest possible way.
