1. Anti-frizz hair products are key.

One may think that a top notch flat iron is the key to success when it come to creating bone straight hair looks, but it’s only part of the equation. The products you apply to your hair during your hair washing process plays a huge role too. After washing your hair, we recommend following up with a mask. Why? A hair mask will help add moisture into your hair and treat it before heat styling tools robs you of it all. Use Dove Anti-Frizz Oil Therapy Mask on your hair to ensure you’ll have a sleek finish to your style.

2. Your blow-drying technique needs an upgrade.

If you’re taking matters into your own hands and creating bone straight locks on your own, you can’t do half the job and expect your flat iron to fix the rest. Look at your flat iron as the tool that will help you finalize what you did during the blowdrying phase. Opt for blowdrying your hair as straight as possible using an effective heat protectant, like Dove Style+Care Smooth and Shine Heat Protection Spray.

3. Making your look last.

Do girls with bone straight hairstyles really flat iron their hair every morning? Some most likely do. However, if you want to maintain healthy hair, we recommend always applying a heat protectant (like mentioned above) before restyling. On the other hand, opt for sleeping on a silk pillowcase to maintain the sleek and shiny look of your style. When styling, apply a hair serum like TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shine Serum to help add shine to your hair and make it humidity proof.
