The Ultimate Guide to Hair Straightening: Achieve Sleek, Frizz-Free Hair

Seeking a polished, sleek look for your hair? While straighteners may seem like the obvious solution, excessive heat can lead to damage, dryness and breakage. Discover our guide for achieving straight hair with minimal heat.


STEP 1 - Haircare

The first step to achieving perfectly straight hair without causing damage is to incorporate a range of haircare options that help to achieve a flawless, sleek appearance into your daily routine. These product include shampoos, conditioners and straightening balms that restore protein and provide a luxurious and glossy salon-quality finish to the hair. We highly recommend using products containing Keratin etc. the KMS Therma Shape Straightening Conditioner 300ml. This conditioner works to straighten thick and unruly hair whilst protecting the hair from external aggressors such as heat, humidity and frizz.

STEP 2 Removing excess water

After washing the hair, we recommend using an ultra-absorbent towel. Noughty’s the Purple One Microfibre Hair Tower Wrap works to gently remove excess water from the hair, whilst minimizing frizz and damage. This is a gentler, more efficient way of drying the hair compared to traditional, rough towels. 

STEP 3 - Apply heat protection

After drying the hair, we highly suggest that you apply a heat protectant, this will guarantee optimal results when straightening and prevent breakage and damage. Spritz the Ghd Bodyguard Heat Protect Spray 50ml evenly from a distance of 30 cm, ensuring hair is fully dry before styling to prevent any potential burns. This product is highly recommended for its delightful fragrance, fast drying time, and reliable heat protection properties. 

STEP 4 - Section the hair

Before blow drying the hair, you should section your hair into small, manageable sections. This will prevent flat hair or frizz and reduce the risk of breakage. To do so, create a horseshoe shape at your temples and divide your hair into four or more sections (depending on the thickness of your hair), then clip each section up - to work on one at a time.

STEP 5 - Blow-dry your hair on the cool setting

Utilize the cool setting on your hair dryer and blow-dry hair to avoid heat damage while using a paddle brush to achieve a smooth and straight finish. Apply tension with a nozzle five inches away from taut sections of hair to minimize flyways and promote a luxurious blowout. Take your time drying small sections from root to ends in a slow and careful manner in order to seal the cuticle and maintain a lasting straight style.

STEP 6 - Use hydrating oils

Following this blowdry, in order to ensure that results are long lasting, we advise using oils that smooth and nourish the hair. HWS Beauty recommends the Kerastase Elixir Ultime L’Huile Originale Hair Oil 100ml - This unique blend of 4 exquisite oils including MarulaArgan and Camellia creates lustrous, well-manicured hair that is silky and weightless. Use this indulgent oil as a finisher to your straightening routine to provide nourishment and shine.

Achieving beautifully straight hair doesn’t have to come at the cost of its health. By following these steps and using the recommended products, you can enjoy sleek, straight hair without the damage typically caused by high heat.
