Step 1 Use Straightening Shampoo And Conditioner
First of all, please use straightening shampoo and conditioner to wash and conditioner your hair, which can effectively straighten and smooth your natural hair without heat damage.
After all, These products are formulated to heavily moisturize and weigh down curls for straighter locks.
If you don’t already, use a professional shampoo and conditioner and try to avoid shampoo that contains harsh chemicals, such as sulfates and parabens as they can damage your hair.
Step 2 Use An Extra-absorbent Towel
Then take an extra-absorbent towel to absorb extra moisture from your hair. Instead of using any old towel, invest in an extra absorbent towel such as a microfiber towel that is designed to absorb moisture without causing frizz.
Of course, you can also use a t-shirt to gently dry your hair as an alternative.
1. It’s important to be gentle when towel drying your hair, as rubbing your hair together too roughly can cause frizziness.
2. Hold the extra-absorbent towel around the tips of your hair to absorb moisture and slowly work your way up to your hair, absorbing as you go. Then gently tousle your hair with the towel, making sure not to rub the ends of your hair together if you have long hair.
Step 3 Blow Dry With Cool Air And Brush
After you’ve let your hair air-dry about three-quarters of the way, divide your hair into sections as you normally would, and use the “cool” setting on your blow-dryer, making sure that your blow-dryer is moving continuously from root to tip. In the end, use a flat paddle brush to brush your hair.
That is because blow-drying your hair with hot air is not only damaging to your hair but also creates frizz and encourages curls.
1. Keep the blow-dryer about six inches away from your hair while you dry it.
2. Blow drying with cold air will take longer than drying with hot air. If you are in a hurry or are timing your morning, it may be very inconvenient. Of course, you can choose to let it air dry.
Step 4 Use A Smoothing Product In Your Hair
Once your hair is almost dry, use smoothing hair cream or mousse to discourage frizz and waves in your hair. Besides that, you can try to find a product that contains a natural smoothing agent like coconut oil or jojoba oil to relax your hair, too.
