How to Achieve Silky Smooth Straight Hair

 Here are some top tips on how to achieve a very silky, smooth, frizz-free straight hairstyle. For the past few months, I have been dying to get this look down packed! I love this on-trend look, it's perfect for any occasion and it's a timeless look that will always be adored by hairstylists. So, after months of figuring out the right process for this look, here are my steps to achieve it.

 

Step 1. The wash

This look starts with washing your hair! You will want to use a luminous shampoo and conditioner, something that will make your hair already shine. I recommend the Davines MINU Illuminating Shampoo and Conditioner, but ultimately, it's whatever works best on your hair.

Step 2. The Dry

You're going to want to go in and towel try your hair for a solid 1-2 minutes. After that use, a comb and add a defined part in the centre or sides on your head. Try to get your parting as straight as possible, this will help with the overall look of your hairstyle and make it easier for styling. 

Use a heat protectant before drying your hair and spray all over your hair before proceeding. Then dry your hair as you usually would, then once the hair is almost completely dry you're going to want to bring your hairdryer vertical above your pattern and dry any flyaways down into the rest of your hair. 

Step 3. The Straightener 

One of my all-time favourites is the ghd Original Styler! Which makes the hair feel soft and smooth once it has been straightened. However, you can go in with any straightener of preference and split your hair up into sections before straightening. 

Step 4. Oil!

Oh yes! My favourite step! Go in with a treatment oil of your choice and rub it all over the ends of your hair and throughout the hair from the ear down. Try to avoid using it towards the roots as this will make your hair look greasy. If you have some flyaways at the end of this process don't panic! Use a light to medium hold hairspray and spray them down while holding them in place for 30 seconds after spraying. This should make your hair look complete and tidy.
