This combination of products will give you the softest and sleekest hair you’ve ever had.

Start off by protecting your strands with TIGI Copyright Custom Create Heat Protection Spray and run a straightening iron from your roots to your ends.

Setting your hair straightener on a higher setting will get the job done quicker and a few drops of Suave Moroccan Infusion Styling Oil combed through your ends will give you that added shine.

3. Top Knot
