Straight Hair Secrets
September 4, 2008

For many women, straight hair means an hour long battle with a flat iron only to be foiled at the first hint of moisture. To help women on their quest for pin-straight strands, Marie Claire’s beauty editors gave their “4 Secrets to Straight Hair:”

1. After straightening curled hair, wear a side part. The weight of your hair will keep your do from puffing up.

2. Use a 1500 to 1800 watt dryer. You need the extra power to lock in the shape. Professional hairstylists always use high powered dryers.

3. Blow dry in small sections. Trying to dry large sections won’t work and will just leave your head with patches of damp strands.

4. Use water free styling products. You definitely don’t need the extra moisture.

If you’re a little unsure about how to handle straightening your hair, or if you’ve already tried and been unsuccessful, check out a salon. Salon professionals are great about teaching patrons hair styling techniques.
