Straightening your hair is a common practice but there are a few common mistakes people make when doing so. Read below to see if you’re a causing unnecessary harm to your hair.
Don’t think that conditioning/shampooing your hair will actually give you straight hair as it won’t. It may help with preparing with the process though. Also remember not to towel dry your hair thoroughly, instead choose the pat downwards technique.
When in the process of straightening your hair, if you see steam and/or sizzle have a look at the situation. Make sure your hair is dry when you straighten, if not this could be the reason for the sizzle.
It’s not necessary to straighten the same part of your hair more than once. It all comes down to tension.
