Ever wondered how the Kardashian-Jenner’s manage to get such lust-worthy interstellar straight strands sans damage? Well, we’re about to lift the lid on how you too can overhaul your style, ditching the big bouncy blowout in favor of something altogether more refined this season. You might even be tempted to purge your closet of all that leopard print too and invest in a few chic metallic pieces to match your shiny straight hair.
The fabulous news is that no matter what texture hair you currently have, you can perfect this look as long as it’s prepped correctly. With the right products and tools, you can keep heat damage to a minimum, even if you are going heavy with the flat iron. The main trick is to seal in that shine, using a serum before you go on to blow dry your hair straight.
Let’s take a look now at our expert hair care tips on the fast way to achieve long-lasting straight hair without a bad case of hair-raising static.
Follow our step by step guide to mastering straight hair.
Prep your hair with Fluoro5 Elixer Restore & Repair Oil, Number 4’s favorite repairing and conditioning serum, promoting illuminated hair, encapsulated with time defying shine. This product also magically accelerates blow dry-time, reducing the potential for damage and delivering a shot of anti-static and humidity boosting resistance. Remember to blow dry your hair with the nozzle attachment directed downwards and keep hair as flat to the head as possible. Your objective is to minimize not maximize volume. It might be counter-intuitive to how you usually blow dry your hair, but this look is all about containment.
Follow up by spraying your hair with N4’s Thermal Styling Spray to strengthen it against not just your heat styling tools, but also environmental factors. Right about now, the central heating is about to kick in, probably till next Spring and that can play havoc with hair and scalp hydration. Section your hair into just three parts; left, right and back and work through each area (in 1-1.5-inch sections) brushing from the roots all the way to the ends. Follow up with your flat iron making sure you iron out any stubborn kinks.
Once you’ve worked your way through each of the sections, use your hands to flatten down your hair, pressing closely against your scalp to smooth down. Now grab your hairdryer and give it a final cooling blast to set in place for hair that’s so sleek and chic; it’s almost extraterrestrial!
For the final piece de resistance, we have one final secret insider pro tip! Grab yourself a toothbrush and spray it with Number 4’s Mighty Hair Spray. Gently comb the baby hairs around your face and on top of your crown, grabbing those flyaway and static strands and perfectly positioning them for a sleek frizz-free look. Work a small amount of Fluoro5 through the palms of your hands and gently smooth in place for that pin-straight, ultra-shiny and radiant boosting finish.
Voila, you just mastered the art of sleek.
