3 steps to get silky straight hair

This season, pin-straight hair is in! Follow these 3 easy steps to learn how to replicate the style, without damaging your hair in the process!

Step 1: Hydrate your hair

In order for your mane to appear silky and shiny, rather than straw- like, it's important to keep your locks well-nourished. If you haven't tried out our post-summer hydrating haircare routine, now is the time! And don't forget to only wash hair twice a week, use nourishing hair masks on a regular basis, and get a trim every few months, at least.

Step 2: Protect your hair

Heat can be damaging to your locks, so you should only straighten your hair twice a week, maximum. Whenever you use your blow dryer or flat iron, apply a heat protectant product first, like Nutrifier Cream by L'Oréal Professionnel. If your hair doesn't look as straight the next day, just apply some texturizing spray and rock French girl hair!

Step 3: Choose the right tool

To get super straight hair, you need to divide your mane into sections and take time straightening each one. A professional flat iron will help you have a better end result. However, don't crank the heat up to the highest setting, even if your hair is thick, to minimize damage. Also, consider investing in a steam straightening iron, like Steampod which will be gentler on the hair shaft.
