Straighten Your Hair With Herbal Essences

Did you run out and buy that cool pink flat iron the other day? If you did, or if you are a flat iron user at all (or want to be), this is a great video from Clairol’s Herbal Essences on how to straighten your hair. Even if you don’t flat iron it, the use of the hair dryer, as shown in the video, will give you a pretty darned straight look.

That gal is terminally cute, eh? LOL

That is a good video – my only comment is that she made a pretty quick mention of the importance of blow drying down the length of hair (I think she said something like the direction of your hair). It is very important when blow drying to keep your hairdryer pointed towards the end of your hair, because if you don’t, the cuticle of your hair will be roughed up and your hair will look frizzy, and no amount of product will help that.

    that is a lot of steps to do especially in the morning when you are pressed for time. I dont have time for all that. also drying the back of your head is to get straight is next to impossible. I have short hair falls right below my ears with a natural wave. I can never get the back of my hair straight no matter what I do. Hell I can barely get a brush through it. this might work if you are handy with your hair and you have long hair like she does..most of us live in the real world and dont have perfect hair like this young woman has.

    LOL It definitely is a time consuming proposition, thats for sure, and it would not ever be a good thing to do to your hair every day. I only straighten mine like that on special occasions – normally, I rock the natural waves. Thanks for the comment, Cheryl!

    also every magazine I have ever read, every program I have ever seen on hair tells you that less is more…using all those products would just make my hair greasy and weigh it down more than it is now.

    How do I get my hair straight wihtout using a hair straightner or a blowdryer. I only want to use sprays,gels,ect. My hair is really delicate. I dont like using anything with heat. My hair is very wavy and spongy, but very shiny.
