Without the right hair care products and tools, achieving smooth, straight, and sleek hair can turn into a super lengthy and tedious process. Aside from having a great flat iron, a super effective heat protectant, and a shampoo (to help prepare your hair for smooth locks), you’ll also need a straightening conditioner to help you out.
5 of the Best Straightening Conditioners
If you’re not familiar with a straightening conditioner, we are here to let you know more about the benefits of using one before creating straight styles on your hair. Read on as we explain what this specialty conditioner is and how to use it, plus a few of our favorites.
Let’s start off by telling you what it is not. A straightening conditioner doesn’t make your hair straight. The conditioner, usually a part of a wash and care system formulated for creating straight styles, is made up of ingredients that’ll leave you with a smooth and conditioned base before blowdrying or flat ironing.
1. TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Conditioner
First, you have to decide your reason for using one in the first place. Is it just for a special event? If so, you can also opt for the TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Conditioner. Are you using it because you’re trying to keep your hair straight during high humidity? Or is this how you’re planning to avoid spending an arm and a leg for a true in-salon keratin treatment? If it’s the last two, then this straightening conditioner is for you.
