Straightening Curly Hair?

I have very dry and puffy hair. I have already damaged the tips of my hair by using a flat iron too much. I even tried permanent straightening, but it did not work. Please help; what should I do to get straight hair?

First use a shampoo for porosity control then go to a place and have you hair cut in layers this will help with the bushiness of your hair and your hair will lay flatter. I wouldn't mess with straighteners this will damage your hair I know I have been there and done that I have wavy hair too but getting the right kind of cut helps and the right kind of shampoo is even better.

How long is your hair? The more longer it gets, the more weight it will create, and it will help a little bit with "weighing it down." Tresemme shampoo and conditioner works great with making hair silky and smooth. I would recommend that. when you get out of the shower, avoid blow drying unless you have to, because that makes hair very poofy.

Also, when you get out of the shower, you need to put a anti-frizz serum in your hair. it's very good for your hair for moisture as well. afterwards spray a heat protectant spray in your hair to guard your hair from heat damage.


Wait for your hair to naturally dry then you can start the straightening. having a good brand straightener is the key to having really straight hair. I would suggest the Chi brand or Ion. Also, if you want really straight hair all over, you need to do it in sections and take your time. Do the very bottom first near your neck, and put the rest of hair pulled or clipped up on top of your head and keep pulling out pieces of hair at a time. Hope this helped.

My life long delima with straightening my curly hair has caused me to use many products and gadgets. I find a good blow dryer and round ceramic brush works best for me. Drying it in both directions, under and over slightly pulling at the roots. I occasionally use a larger size curling iron for straightening as a flat iron only leaves my hair flat and limp.

My hair is blond, baby fine and super frizzy with corkscrew curls. Most people like this style, minus the frizz. Just not me all the time. I use John Freida hair serum alone for everyday. ( I only wash every other day, helps the frizz.) For my curly days I also use a John Freida product, Dream Curls. It has great anti frizz abilities. Keep the ends trimmed to keep it healthy looking.

Good luck, I know you will find what works best for you.
