Long Lasting Straight Hair Tips and Products
long lasting straight hair
A long lasting straight hair look is not easy to achieve but with tips and products you will not only have silk, sleek hair but it will last you for 2 weeks.
It is very important to moisturize the hair, an easy way to do so, is by applying extra virgin olive oil and massing the scalp for few minutes . Cover it with a hair cap and let it sit for 10-15 minutes. The olive oil serves as a moisturizer allowing the hair to be stronger and look healthy.
Use a keratin Shampoo and Conditioner. I love TRESemmé Keratin Smooth, this hair line helps a lot with frizz and provides healthier looking hair.
Heat protectant. TRESemmé’ s keratin heat protectant spray, TRESemmé Heat Tamer leave-in spray or L’Oreal Blow Dry It thermal smoother cream. These products are great for after wash leave-in, they will protect your hair from excessive heat that would lead to dryness and split ends. Perfect choice to avoid frizzy hair on humid days!
Flat Iron Heat Spray. I LOVE L’OREAL Sleek It Iron Straight Heat Spray! This spray is amazing, it will leave your hair so soft and silky and yes it will last you a whole week or more. They advertise that it’s 3 day sleek but I think they were just trying to be humble. Apply it before using the flat iron, please don’t use to much because it would make the hair be heavy. Make sure to wipe down the floor, this product will make the floor slippery.
Serum. I like to use a very little amount, especially in the summer to avoid frizz. It’s a great choice to provide that extra protection for dry or damaged hair. My favorites are L’OREAL Smooth Intense Frizz Taming Serum and TRESemmé Keratin smooth Serum.
To maintain the straight hair for 2 weeks make sure to wrap it every night with a hair net. The best way is to do a doobie using bobby pins and a hair net. Make sure to remove the bobby pins after placing the hair net.
