Right, so it’s only fair that after writing about how to have curly hair, I write the opposite for those of us who really REALLY want straight hair – but don’t know where to start!
- Use a mild shampoo. Proper shampooing is important to maintain healthy, happy straight hair. Wash hair with a really mild shampoo that doesn’t have sodium laureth sulphate–which dries out hair and makes it brittle.
- Beware of tangles. A good conditioner such as Pantene in the UK will also help keep your straight hair healthy and will make it easier to untangle after shampooing. Keep a wide-toothed comb in the shower and comb through your hair before you rinse the conditioner out.
- Find the Right Conditioner. If you have dry hair you will need to use a moisturising conditioner. However, if you have oily hair you should use a basic conditioner on your ends only, to help prevent over conditioning which will leave straight hair limp and reduce its shine.
