7 Useful Tricks To Know Before Using a Hair Straightener

Last updated on: February 17, 2016 11:06 IST

#1 Choose the right straightener according your hair type –

Hair straighteners

Buy Hair Straighteners Under Rs 399

For thin and short hair - 1” flat iron

For moderately thick hair (shoulder length) – 1 ¼” flat iron

For thick and long hair – 1 ½” flat iron

Also, make sure that you use a hair straightener with ceramic plates as it distributes the heat evenly and does hardly any damage to your hair.

#2 Don’t forget to use a hair spray

Hair sprays

Buy Hair Sprays Starting @ Rs 184 

Before you start styling your hair with a straightener or a curling iron, use a heat protection spray as using it directly can cause dryness and damage.The spray makes your hair damp and acts as a shield between your hair and the iron.

#3 Set the temperature right

Pritech Straightener

Buy Pritech Hair Straightener @ Rs 350

No matter how thick your hair is, make sure you set the heat on medium mode as excessive heat causes hair damage

#4 Want a little bend in the tip of your hair? Try this trick

Spray Serum & Brush

Divide your hair in to 6-8 equal portions and apply a hair serum followed by a hair spray and start using the straightener on one side of the hair and hair brush on the other side to get the desired bend look.

#5 Want voluminous hair on the crown? Here is how you get it!
