Straight Hair

I love going to the hairdressers because my hair always feels so sleek and straight. The problem is that I cannot recreate the look at home. Do you have any pointers?

For salon straight hair, you need to invest in a protective serum and a flat paddle brush. Towel dry your hair and get rid of knots with a wide toothed comb, then use the serum to prevent frazzled ends. You will be drying your hair in sections, so tie it up in a half pony tail, so that you can get to work on the underneath. Dry 2-3 inch sections at a time, using the paddle brush to pull your hair taut. This will ensure that it is nice and straight. Once you have completed the underneath, let down more hair and continue until you have a head of sleek, straight hair. Alternatively, you can invest in a pair of hair straighteners. It is worth spending some money on these, so I would recommend you go for ones by GHD (Good Hair Day).
