Straightening Curly Hair

<< Back to Styling Curly Hair

If your goal is to straighten and de-frizz your hair, the following is a step-by-step straightening lesson. Straightening curly hair successfully depends on the correct tension and heat. When curly hair is stretched until it is straight and then dried in that position, it will remain that way until re-wet.

 

The hotter you heat your hair, the faster the process will take. The function of a straightening styling product is to protect your hair from thermal damage and make it easier and safer to stretch your hair as straight and tight as possible.

Humidity and moisture is the #1 enemy of successful, straight, smooth and happy hair styling days.

ReMane Straight™ does not use silicone or oil to control humidity or moisture and that is the secret to its success. We all know that oil and water do not mix—they repel each other. So, if you rely on products that contain silicone or oil, you will have to use so much that your hair will soon become greasy and dirty. ReMane Straight™ is so effective during those super-humid weather conditions that you can use a generous amount knowing that your hair will dry clean and protected for many days.

First, comb ReMane Straight™ through on wet hair from roots to ends for an even application.

Next, separate a section of hair, stretch it with a round brush and pull on it. (This is where the tension comes in.) While you’re pulling at a piece, add the heat of the blow dryer toward the tips to seal the hair in that position. You want to seal the cuticle in a closed position. Ideally, you should let each strand cool down before releasing the brush and letting your hair fall. It is important to do small sections at a time; perhaps use a clip to keep the rest of your hair from getting in the way. You need to have lots of patience. Shoulder-length hair will take about 45 minutes to straighten.

After your hair has been blown dry, you may want to go over it with a flat iron. The secret to using today’s flat iron is to keep it moving, like you do when you’re ironing clothes. You don’t want to keep it still or you will get heat damage. The extracts in ReMane Straight™ will help prevent heat damage. If you see steam rising, it’s better than seeing smoke!

Finally, use Tweek™ as a finishing tool. Tweek™ will seal, flatten and smooth any flyaway hair. You can reapply Tweek™ as often as desired without any buildup or feeling of product in your hair; just a smooth clean shine.

The right tools:

  • An easy-to-use, lightweight, high-powered hairdryer with a cool setting (use a 1600 or 1800 watt dryer)
  • Large paddle brush—great for the first step of eliminating all the tangles and removing most of the moisture. Longer hair will require a larger brush.

Tip:
If you want to put some bounce back into your hair after you've used the flat iron, attach a diffuser to your hairdryer, tumble your head upside down and scrunch it a bit with the diffuser. This will allow some of the bend to come back into your hair. Although your hair might feel dry after using a hairdryer, it can still be manipulated to bend.
