The most common method for straightening hair is to brush it and blow-dry it as soon as it is washed. Since most people have the necessary equipment on hand, this is a cost-effective method, although it is far from being the easiest. Ask a stylist to show you how to do it on your own, as brushing and blow-drying your hair straight can be damaging if you do not do it correctly. Once you’ve honed the skill, however, it will save you a great deal of time and money down the road.?
For those who’d prefer not to straighten their hair by brushing and blow-drying it, using a flatiron may be the next best option. Since flatirons work on all hair-types, they’re ideal for those who have extremely curly hair. That said, using a flat-iron on a regular basis can be rather damaging to your hair, and is thus not always recommended by stylists, many of whom prefer the brushing and blow-drying method.??
If you don’t mind shelling out money on a semi-regular basis, there are plenty of hair products on the market that can assist in straightening your hair. While they are typically very effective, they sometimes have a steep learning curve. Also, styling products can make your hair feel greasy and unnatural if they're applied incorrectly.
