Ways to Make Your Natural Thick Hair Silky Straight

Sometimes women with curly hair are dreaming about making it silky straight. Many styling devices can harm the hair structure, and you can’t always be sure about the effect of chemical hair straightening procedures. If you have naturally curly hair, you’re probably well aware that it can sometimes take an array of hair-styling products and heat tools to go from curly to straight hair. While using the best flat iron for curly hair can work in your favor, it shouldn’t be your only method for straightening natural hair. Before you learn the ins and outs of going from curly to straight hair, there are a few things you need to know. Not all curly hair textures are the same. There are three natural hair textures—wavy, curly, and coily—that determine the difference between a loose or tight curl pattern. So, you may find that someone with wavy hair may be able to straighten their hair easier than those with coily hair, since it’s much closer to a straight texture to begin with. So learning how to properly straighten hair naturally is a must for a salon-approved finish. 

Set your hair after a shampoo and conditioning session, working with wet hair. Spray your hair with water if it begins to dry as you set it. Apply the setting product of your choice to each section of hair before rolling. Remember to keep even tension as you roll as this ensures straighter results.

Roll your hair

Use large hair rollers, i.e. the size of soda cans, to roll sections of wet hair and secure them tightly against your head. Let dry completely. This is important, because the slightest bit of moisture can make the curl or wave come back.

Good Setting Product Choices

  • KeraCare Foam Wrap-Set Lotion 
  • Heat up your iron, start sectioning off your hair and apply your protectant product.
  • Grab a section and clamp the hair tool as close to the root as you can and gently glide it down the mid-lengths and ends. (Option to use a fine-toothed comb with the iron to get a sleeker look.)
  • Go over each section once or twice more. If you hear sizzling or smell something burning, you probably want to dial the heat down a bit before resuming.
  • After you’ve straightened every section, finish the look with a hydrating serum or humidity-resistant gel like Ouidad Advanced Climate Control Heat & Humidity Gel, DevaCurl Frizz Free Volumizing Foam or It’s A 10 Miracle Leave-In Plus Keratin to keep the flyaways at bay and prevent frizz from forming.
