Who doesn’t remember the hairstyles of Jennifer Aniston or Christina Aguilera during the 90s? The interest in reviving the ultra-straight hairstyle that was worn so much during those years is gaining ground against the waves.
In this way, we explain the tips you must follow to achieve a perfect hair straightening. From the ideal professional tools to the Termix products that will complement and enhance the hairstyle.
STEPS FOR STRAIGHT HAIR
PREPARE THE MANE
It is essential to properly prepare the mane before straightening it. Washing it well and using moisturizing products makes the subsequent work faster and easier. Hair should also be detangled properly. This will prevent breakage of the hair fiber.
On the one hand, use the Detangler spray on each strand. It’s an instant detangling product with a strengthening anti-breakage and anti-split ends formula. And on the other hand, we’ll use the Termix Paddle brush to untangle the hair. Thanks to its thick nylon fibers, it’s a brush suitable for detangling wet and dry hair. How do we do it? We start from the bottom up (from tips to root), with slow and short movements.
PROTECT THE HAIR
In any drying job, it is very important to use a good heat protectant. The Shieldy thermo-protective spray also contains argan oil, which provides moisturizing and anti-static action for softer, more luminous hair. It’s used from medium to ends, both on wet and dry hair. If the hair is very damaged, it’s preferable to repeat the step both before the dryer and before the hair straighteners.
Then, we proceed to use the hair dryer that, thanks to its nozzle, helps us to direct the air, always from top to bottom. In this way, we dry while we begin to avoid frizz. And don’t hesitate to help yourself with the Gold Rose flat brush! Its ceramic technology helps maintain a constant temperature during drying and reduces the effects of heat. You’ll finish drying sooner!
PART THE HAIR WITH TWEEZERS
It is very important to use a hair straightener with a temperature regulator, to be able to choose which hair we use one temperature or another. «In fine and weakened hair we cannot go over 150-160ºC. In thick and healthy hair, as in this case, we can change it to 190-200ºC. We should never exceed 270º, since it’s professional use for chemical treatments.»
We make several separations in the hair, not very thick, and use the Termix Soft tweezers to prevent the hair from breaking.
We start by passing the hair straightener through each strand, making two or three passes at the root. Then it is very important to slide it slowly along the strand. It’s more effective to do it slowly and a few times than quickly and many times (which is when the hair suffers the most).
Did you know that while you easily slide the hair straightener 230º through your hair, you also purify it? Thanks to its nanotechnology and ion regulation! They help eliminate traces of chemical products and collaborate to disinfect the hair.
A TOUCH OF SHINE
For a more than perfect finish, we apply the Glossy shine spray from our Style.Me range with natural ingredients. Sprayed on dry hair, it provides a long-lasting light effect without weighing it down and leaving no residue. And so we enhance the mirror effect!
THE SECRET TO A PERFECT FINISH
Finally, a trick to eliminate short hairs that may be directed to the sides. On the one hand, we can vaporize a little hair spray on the natural bristle brush. Or on the other hand, spray directly on the hair and control them with a polishing brush. Always gently and in the direction of the hair!
