The so-called Sleek look is trendy for years, the silky shimmer of really straight hair looks just great. So that your hair is so shiny and beautifully smooth, I have my tips for you.
The right straightener
The quality of the flat iron is important for beautiful hair. The plates should therefore be really smooth. The temperature of the flat iron is another crucial factor in smoothing. Depending on the hair structure, the heat must be regulated in order not to damage the hair additionally. If the hair is already strained, less heat should definitely be used, and if the hair is healthy it tolerates a higher temperature. At the beginning, always test in the lower temperature range how much heat your hair needs and then correct the setting if necessary. A great flat iron is for example that BaByliss Pro – Elipsis 3000, The ceramic-coated flat iron with its 5 temperature levels ensures a beautiful smooth and gentle result.
It is essential to apply a special product before working with heat. The EIMI Smooth – Thermal Image is a 2-phase spray and protects the hair up to a heat of 220 ° C. The result is flawless and shiny hair with an anti-frizz effect.
The right smoothing
So that the hair becomes visibly smooth it makes sense to smooth it in different parts. First start with the under hair, take the thinnest possible strands and make sure that the flat iron is pulled down with even movements. Too long contact with the straightener in one place causes the hair to overheat and may even break over time. So that there are no knots in the hair, the hair must be brushed just before the straightening iron. I always do it with both hands, so I go through the hair with the Tangle Teezer and directly with the straightener afterwards.
Tip: Make a big arch with the straightener downwards, which prevents the tips from sticking out. If the hair has some residual moisture before smoothing, the result will be softer than in a dry condition. You can also moisten the hair with the heat protection.
So that the hair stays as smooth as possible for a long time and no hairs stick out, a little hairspray can be used. As a finish, I always wear that EIMI Hairspray – Dynamic Fix, It fixes the hair without complaining and leaves a beautiful shine. In the evening, the hair spray can be brushed off again so that you can style it the next morning as usual.
