How to Iron Your Hair: 14 Simple Steps
Straight hair is surprisingly quick and easy to get using a flat iron styling tool without leaving home. Ceramic irons are popular because they provide uniform heat for most hair types and are relatively inexpensive; titanium plates can be better for coarse hair, and tourmaline (a.k.a. "ionic") plates are best suited for damaged hair. Using the proper straightening technique and applying appropriate hair treatment before and after straightening, you can keep your hair straight all day and protect your hair from heat damage. Follow the instructions below to learn how to properly iron your hair from beginning to end.
1 Use softening or moisturizing shampoos and conditioners.
2 Dry your hair with pats after getting out of the shower
3 Use a heat protection serum or heat treatment while your hair is wet
4 Dry the hair with a dryer.
5 Plug-in the iron and turn the switch on.
6 Separate your hair into several sections.
