Keep your hair straighter longer

Question: How can I keep my naturally curly hair straight all day?

Keeping naturally curly hair straight comes down simply to products. My hair is naturally curly and it takes me quite a long time to straighten it, so when I do, I want it to stay that way. For straight hair and super confidence, I use a couple products:

First, I use shampoo and conditioner that is specifically formulated to work with heat treatment.

Second, I use a bit of gel that is specifically formulated for straightening.

Finally, I use anti-humidity creme. This is very important because humidity is what causes your hair to revert to its natural texture.

You can also use hairspray to keep the look fresher longer, just make sure you spray it far away from your head and you use an aerosol spray, so as not to let your hair come into contact with liquid.

Good luck and remember, you’re worth it!
Love, CarolAnn
