Super-straight, glossy hair never goes out of style. If you’re looking to make a change for a big event or party and you want the latest glass hair look, here’s how to get the pin straight look at home.
A word of warning - if your hair’s naturally curly or wavy and you’re planning on adopting straight hair long-term, straight hair is more prone to split ends, so you’ll need to take extra care of your locks. It’s best to get your hair trimmed every 4 - 6 weeks to prevent split ends, remove any damaged hair and keep your straight hair healthy and beautiful. Work in our Miraculous Recovery Repairing Tropical Oil to your routine to keep hair in tip-top condition when using heat to style.
How to prepare hair for straightening
The secret to sleek, shiny straight hair begins with a great prepping routine. Start with using our Flawlessly Straight Shampoo and Flawlessly Straight Conditioner, as these smoothing products will prepare your strands for straightening.
If your hair’s prone to frizz, use our Brazilian Sleek Shampoo and Brazilian Sleek Conditioner to hydrate your hair and provide a natural defence against frizz. Dry, frizzy hair never responds well to straightening - use a soft brush or wide-toothed comb to work the conditioner through your lengths, and rinse with lukewarm water.
Dry gently with a microfibre towel or an old cotton t-shirt - rubbing briskly will only enhance your natural curls.

Can I straighten my hair every day?
We wouldn’t recommend that you straighten your hair every day as it can cause breakage, heat damage, and dehydrate your strands. Ideally, you should only be straightening freshly-washed, heat-protected hair 2 to 3 times a week.
Can I permanently straighten my hair?
You can - there’s a technique hairdressers use called permanent hair straightening, which is a chemical treatment for curly or wavy hair. The treatment alters the texture of naturally curly hair and encourages it to lose its curl and lie flat. The results can last for several months, until new hair grows in to replace the hair that was treated. As the chemical solution works by releasing your hair’s natural curl, hair breakage can be a common side-effect.
