# 1 Choose the straightener for your hair type
For thin, short hair - 1 "flat iron
For moderately thick hair (shoulder length) - 1 ¼ "flat iron
For thick and long hair - flat iron 1 ½ "
Also, make sure that you use with ceramic plates as it distributes heat evenly and does not damage your hair.
# 2 Do not forget to use a hairspray
Before you start styling your hair with a hair straightener or a curling iron, use a heat protection spray, as direct use can cause drying and damage. The spray makes your hair moist and serves as a shield between your hair and the iron.
# 3 Set the hair straightener temperature right
Regardless of the thickness of your hair, be sure to set the heat in a medium mode as excessive heat damages the hair.
# 4 Do you want a little crease in the tip of your hair? Try this trick
Divide your hair into 6 to 8 equal portions and apply a hair serum followed by hairspray and start using the straightener on one side of the hairbrush and the hairbrush on the other side to get the desired fold.
