Ok, so we’re taking a break from crazy hairstyles and going back to basics. But it’s not as easy as it sounds. Getting the perfect blow-dry is harder, getting the perfect slick-straight hair is even harder! But if you follow a few simple steps, you’ll achieve it so naturally, it’s going to be your go-to look.

First, your hair should be at its healthiest state. Use a coconut oil or argan oil treatment at least once a week to get rid of excess frizz and to restore moisture. When beginning the process of styling your hair into a straight-do, start with completely dry hair, if your hair is naturally curly then blow dry it first. Do not use an oil-based thermal protector but do use one with less oil to minimize heat damage. Apply hair spray before you start straightening to make it last longer. Use a fine-tooth comb when using a straightener, comb your hair down while following with the straightener. 

Last tip, always straighten from the root to the end…
