How to Get Super Straight Hair
Wet-to-Dry and Blowouts
Wet-to-Dry Flat Iron A new addition to the market, this combination hair dryer/hair straightener smoothes straight as it dries, eliminating the need for an in-between step of blow-drying. This is a great new tool that we've been using a lot in the salon, and selling to our clients, who love it. It's a timesaver, and it boosts hair's condition, as it eliminates the need to blow-dry.
Blowouts This conventional hair-straightening method is applied when hair is pulled over a brush (round for more volume, flat for a straighter look) and dried with hot air. The good thing about blow-drying is that you can control the volume of hair, and smooth it without making it hang stick-straight (as is the result of other straightening methods). The bad thing is that you can never get it as straight as with other methods, like an iron. When getting a blowout, do not let the hair dryer touch the hair, and prep with products designed to protect during styling. New dryers, like ionic dryers, allow drying time to be cut dramatically, thus lessening the damage to your hair.
