How to Straighten Curly Hair Fringe
1. Start with fresh strands.
Begin by treating yourself to an extra long shower and wash your hair with the TRESemmé Flawless Curls Shampoo and the TRESemmé Flawless Curls Conditioner. Spend a few extra moments massaging your scalp for a pseudo-salon experience while you shampoo your hair. When it comes to conditioner, focus on distributing the majority of the product on the hair below your ears and work the leftovers into your scalp. This will add extra shine and softness to your strands and make your hair much more flexible when you get to styling.
2. Diffuse and blow-dry.
Run a dollop of the Suave Professionals Luxe Style Infusion Volumizing Soufflé Mousse through your damp hair and diffuse the longer pieces using your blowdryer with the diffuser attachment. Once your hair has dried, focus your blowdryer on your bangs. Using a large round brush, curl your bangs towards your face and direct the blowdryer first at the roots and then at the ends of your bangs.
3. Straighten and spray into place.
For a natural finish that doesn’t look too overdone, run a straightener set on a low-heat setting throughout the ends of of your bangs. This will seal in the shine and smoothness and maintain that professionally done feeling. Spray them with a quick mist of the Dove Style + Care Extra Hold Hairspray to keep all of your hard work in place.
