Warm weather and summer activities can be a great deal of fun but can certainly make for challenges when styling your hair. Whether you are on vacation, going to work, or relaxing at home, feeling good about your hair can make all the difference in your mood and outlook on life. Being confident in your hairstyle boosts self-esteem and one’s attitude towards others. There are many ways that people choose to combat troublesome hair during the warm, humid months of summer. Some prefer to pull their hair up in a bun or ponytail while others prefer to straighten their hair to eliminate frizz. This article will identify 3 simple tips that will help you straighten hair that is frizzy, thick, and wavy. With a little bit of time, patience, and practice you will accomplish great hair techniques to combat warm weather hair dilemmas.
Straightening is perfect for wavy hair as it can dampen frizz and smooth out your tresses from the root to the ends. To achieve this look, there are several tips that can help you get the best results.
- Flat Iron. Choosing the best flat iron for your needs is of great importance. Make sure that you pay attention to the barrel size, heating element materials, and temperature gauge. These features are important as some work better on frizzy and thick hair than others. For example, many flat irons boast having a ceramic heating element. While this may be great for some, it is actually better for those with frizzy and thick, wavy hair to use a flat iron that has a tourmaline heating element. Tourmaline is a crystallized mineral that is used on the metal plants to naturally de-frizz hair while it straightens. This will yield much better results than using what is trendy right now.
- Clean and dry. It is important to wash, condition, and dry your hair before you start the straightening process. Making sure that your hair is clean is important as you may not have to wash your hair the next day; you may be able to use dry shampoo without having to restyle your locks. This can save time, money, and wear on your precious hair strands. It is important to make sure that your hair is completely dry before you straighten it so that you can avoid breakage. In addition, hair will respond better to your flat iron if it is dry.
- Volume. Sometimes after straightening your hair, you may be concerned because your locks look flat or slick against your head. To avoid this, you can use heat protectant spray or other hair care products that will help with volume. Another way to increase volume is to use the flat iron at the top of the crown of your head and curl towards your face as you pull the wand down. This can help add some volume and curvature towards your face on the ends.
With these simple tips, you can have great hair all summer long!
