Do you struggle to straighten your hair? Is the end result less than satisfactory? Have you suffered too much damage as a result of using heat styling tools?

 

Straightening your locks is an art in itself and if you don’t know how to do it properly, from prep through styling to finishing touches, you might damage your hair irreparably. As we know beautiful hair equals healthy hair, so let’s learn how to avoid bad styling habits.

 

Here’s what our experts have to reveal about the right way to straighten your hair and how to avoid critical damaging actions.

Are you doing any of these mistakes yourself? If you are, read on to find out how to fix your straightening routine.

  1. Know How to Wash Properly

Your hair must be clean and fresh before styling. This extends the time of your style and maintains your straightening tools clean as well. There are two things you must get right though.

First of all, after shampooing, use a conditioner (or a hair mask if your hair is too dry) – this will prevent tangling by reducing any unpleasant knots. In addition to that, the conditioner locks in moisture, which helps minimize damage during heat styling.

Second, don’t wash your hair with warm water because this will open the cuticle, exposing it to damage. Rinse with lukewarm or cool water instead. The cold water seals the cuticle, minimizes breakage and reduces frizz.

 

2. Dry The Right Way

Your hair must be 100% dry if you opt to straighten with a hot iron or a straightening brush. Otherwise you can scorch your locks. But it’s also important to know how to dry it properly, otherwise the result will be less than desirable.

Let’s begin with mopping off the moisture after stepping out of the shower. Cotton towels can cause too much friction, which damages the cuticle and leads to excessive frizz. Never rub your hair – this creates static. Instead of rubbing and using a cotton towel, as soon as you finish rinsing your hair, wrap it in a microfiber wrap. The microfiber absorbs the excessive water gently without friction.

Next comes blow drying. In order to maintain volume, you have to pull your strands up and blow your roots in an upward direction. Once you have dried the roots, you can dry the ends in a downward direction to help your strands fall evenly.

3. Use A Heat Protectant

Before straightening your curls, you must apply a heat protectant, such as a heat shield or a blow-dry primer to your locks. These types of products work in several ways. First, they condition your hair, which creates a shield against the heat. Second, they help make the cuticle more elastic, which helps it recover from the aggressive heat styling. All in all, a heat protectant is indispensable when it comes to minimizing damage.

4. Don't Amp Up The Temperature Too Much

How much heat you need to flatten your curls depends entirely on your hair type. Coarse, wiry hair needs a lot of heat to get straightened, but thin, fine, wavy hair doesn’t need the same amount of heat.

Take your hair type into consideration before powering up your styling tool to the max – that’s the easiest way to avoid scorching your beautiful strands. After all, once damage is done, it cannot be undone. The best way to figure out the right temperature is to start with a lower setting and see how that works for you and whether you need to dial up or down.

5. Finish Off Your Style

To achieve a long-lasting finish, you have to use the right products after styling. You can gently apply hair oil along the length of your hair for improved shine and protection. Just don’t overdo it as you don’t want to end up with overly oily hair. Finally finish off with a hairspray that will hold your locks in place and minimize frizz.

6. Use The Correct Straightening Tool

When it comes to straightening you have different options. What you choose depends on your hair type and the result you seek to achieve. However, some tools are so yesterday by now and you have new, advanced options. Let’s look at all of them.


Blow Dryer

Pros

  • Works best on slightly curly hair
  • Good option if you want to plump up your volume
  • Will need a round brush to achieve smooth results

The Cons

  • Can only achieve a short-term effect and your hair will curl up as soon as it gets wet
  • Can dry up your hair cuticle too much, eventually leading to split ends and shedding

Straightening Iron

Pros

  • Works better than a blow-dryer on thick, coarse hair and stubborn, coily curls
  • Section off hair, and move the flat iron over strands
  • Start as close to the root as possible

The Cons

  • Direct heath applied to your hair dries up the hair, leaving it brittle and dull
  • More prone to split ends
  • Loses it's shine
  • If your hair is very curly or thick, you will need to apply more heat for longer times, which will lead to even more damage

Hot Straightening Brush

Pros

  • Straightening brushes, also known as hot brushes, are simple, safe and easy to use!
  • Heats up like a flat iron but much gentler on your hair
  • Helps reduce damage
  • Detangles, straightens and brushers all in one

However, most women are fairly unfamiliar with this tool. Let’s see what makes it so great for straightening…

A Straightening Brush is The Fastest, Most Convenient Hair Straightening Tool

Straightening brushes heat up quickly and evenly, and since they maintain a constant temperature, can be much safer and gentler to your hair. They also work a lot faster and let you tame frizz and maintain your volume.

The experts at L’ange recommend the Le Vite Straightening Brush. The benefits of using this straightening brush are countless…

  • Heat Protection
  • Hydrated Hair

The hot plates in a flat iron scorch your hair, leading to long-term damage, such as dryness, split ends, frizz, breakage and even hair loss. Thanks to infrared technology the Le Vite straightening brush heats up your hair evenly from the inside out, using indirect heat technology. The bristles distribute the heat gently and the end result is healthy-looking hair that’s better protected during and after styling.

Flat irons heat up your hair in a way that evaporates all moisture from it. The heat also opens up the cuticle, leaving it prone to damage and static. The infrared technology in Le Vite penetrates the hair's cuticle and gently smooths strands from the inside out. Instead of scorching it, the infrared wave steams it, locking in the moisture inside the cuticle. Your hair is shinier, frizz-free and static-free.

  • Super quick styling
  • Safe To Use

Whether you’re straightening your hair with a flat iron or blow-dryer, it takes forever, especially if your hair is very thick and curly. The Le Vite straightening brush cuts your styling time drastically. All you have to do is run the brush through your locks once or twice and you instantly get straight, smooth and frizz-free finish.

How many times have you scorched your locks or burnt your scalp and fingers when using a flat iron? One too many. Enough of that! Hot brushes like Le Vite are safer – to your hair, scalp and skin – and to your household. The automatic lock-down and the temperature control, help provide safe styling.

  • Works on all hair types
  • Two-in-one
  • Use it anywhere

The Le Vite straightening brush works on all hair types, be it wavy, curly or coily. You can also use it on straight hair for a smooth, long-lasting finish.
