So today I’m giving you guys some tips on how I straighten my curly hair with flat irons to get your hair from curly craziness to straight whoosh hair. Hopefully someone other than me knows what I’m talking about lol. As you guys can see, my hair is anything but straight, but the way I straighten my curly hair is the easiest for me and creates the least amount of damage.
Before I straighten my curly hair, here are some tips!
My number one tip when it comes to straightening your hair without a crap ton of damage, is to let it air dry. Yeah using a heat protector will mitigate some of the damages to the ends of your hair, but the less heat you use the healthier your hair will be in the long run. Another thing I would highly recommend is to ALWAYS use a heat protector, especially if you use heat a lot. A good one will make your hair look healthier and shinier than if you don’t use it. Also keep in mind that your hair can only handle so much heat. If you go over your hair a couple times and the curls are still there, bump it up a little, but not too much. Too much heat will fry your hair.
Couple Extra Tips
Personally I don’t wash my hair every day. My hair is super dry and washing it too much gives my hair a heart attack. So when I straighten it, if i notice pieces arent straight- or aren’t the way I like them- I will fix it. I will usually straighten my hair twice a month, and when I wash my hair, I’ll leave it curly to give my hair a break. Sometimes your hair needs a little alone time to recouperate ;).
