If your hair is very curly, it is best to first blow dry it with large brush. Do this lock by lock. This way most of the hair will be straightened before you use the straightener.
Always straighten your hair when it is dry. If your hair is not very curly, you can leave to dry naturally before you use the straightener. If you use the straightener on wet hair you will damage it more.
Apply product to protect your hair. The hair should be protected from high temperature. Apply a small amount of the product on your hand and blow dry your hair. Do not apply the product on your roots. Apply it from the middle of the hair and move towards the peaks.
Separate locks of hair. The more locks you separate, the ‘lighter’ your hair will be. Start from the bottom of the head. Place the lock between the straightener plates and start to straighten.
Move from the roots to the tips. Do not keep the straightener too long in one place. If you need, straighten some lock twice, but do not do it consistently. Keep in mind that with each pass with the straightener you make more damage to your hair.
