It makes no difference if your hair length preference is long or short, there is no denying that sleek, silky, straight hair looks fabulous! Lustrous, smooth, straight hair frames all face shapes and wears well with all types of clothing and garments. Even hats!

What exactly is this “hair” that we all love and crave and spend so much time washing, drying, styling and cutting? Hair is a protein filament that grows from follicles found in the dermis. Hair is one of the defining characteristics of mammals. The human body, apart from areas of glabrous skin, is covered in follicles which produce thick terminal and fine vellus  hair. Most common interests in hair is focused on hair growth, hair types and hair care, but hair is also an important biomaterial primarily composed of protein, notably alpha-keratin.

Curls are glorious and represent a girl with her sugar and spice, but straight, sensuous, sexy hair always looks nice!

For a knock-out look that will bang one out of the park, wispy or blunt bangs worn with straight hair look youthful, playful and fabulous!

Hair Fun Fact: The word “hair” usually refers to two distinct structures: the hair follicle (the part beneath the skin), and the hair shaft, which is the hard filamentous part that extends above the skin surface. Hair fibers have a structure consisting of several layers, starting from the outside: the cuticle, the cortex and the medulla.

Each and every strand of hair is made up of the cuticle, cortex and medulla.

Silky straight hair, when flowing down the back, can cause an eye popping, alluring heart attack! Sheer straight beauty.

How do you obtain straight hair, especially if your hair tends to be naturally wavy or curly?

Three Ways to Straighten Your Hair:

  1. Using a hot iron or flat iron
  2. Using a blow dryer or hair dryer
  3. Using natural ways

Hot irons work well because they provide heat, and heat acts as a hair straightener. If you take small sections of your hair, and run the hot/flat iron down each section from the scalp to the ends, your hair will obtain the silky straight texture that you are trying to create.

Hair dryers and blow dryers work much the same way. If you take a sturdy, good styling brush and place the blow dryer on your roots, then take the brush the entire way down to your ends, keeping the blow dryer moving along with the brush, your hair will automatically straighten. This is why if your hair is damp and wavy, applying heat from the blow dryer and continually brushing the hair, the waves will be removed.

For cost effective flat irons and blow dryers that work magical hair wonders, why not try one of these items?

Straight Hair Fashion Tip: For those of you with brittle or damaged hair, you can still obtain glamorous, silky, straight tresses naturally! Good news!

WAYS TO STRAIGHTEN YOUR HAIR NATURALLY:

  1. Brush wet hair until it dries.
  2. Wrap wet hair tightly. You can wrap your wet hair in a silk scarf and sleep on it to reduce frizz.
  3. Roll your hair. This works with large rollers. Let your hair dry completely before you remove the rollers, then brush.
  4. Ponytails. Divide damp hair into two low ponytails, then add additional elastics every inch or so down the ponytail to hold the hair together. When the hair is dry, remove the ponytails and elastic. Brush to straighten.
  5. Twist hair into a bun. Wrap damp hair into a bun and don’t cover…let your hair air dry, the brush out.

To all of these methods, add a few drops of sweet almond or coconut oil to tame frizz and smooth out the look. For selfie or magazine ready hair, spray hair gloss over the hair. Beautiful, alluring and easy hair care!

Straight hair is chic, stylish, trendy and classy, for a head of hair that mixes sweet school girl with savvy and sassy!

Four Types of Hair Classifications:

“Your hair is so straight and soft. May I run my fingers through your tresses?”

“You can look but don’t touch. Would you want me pawing all your dresses?”

“I would think hair that straight would look thin, but your hair is thick and full.”

“My hair is also chic, shiny and glimmering….never breaking, dry or dull.”

“Is your hair naturally straight or do you style it to fall luxuriously straight down?”

“I use a flat iron strand by strand for a hairstyle that works in business and around town.”

Sometimes, when it comes to your hair, you just have to amp up the volume! While straight, sleek, flat hair is beautiful, a full head of lively, wild, vivacious hair is just as attractive to wear!
Everybody loves a great, full, healthy head of hair!
Whether you wear your lustrous locks short, medium length or long, you can merely pump up the volume of your hair by the sheer way that you choose to blow dry your tresses! I can make my hair look smooth and straight, or thicker and more full, simply by how I blow dry my hair after a shampoo and cream rinse. On a normal day, I tend to wear my hair straight down, and I achieve this look by taking the blow dryer lightly down my hair, starting the heat at the roots of my scalp and applying the heat all the way down to the ends of my hair. I don’t use any straightening products nor do I use a flat iron. I merely work with the heat from the blow dryer and the angle that I apply the heat to my hair.
Once in a while, I want a mane of thick, voluminous, full hair! Big hair! Hair to there! And I can achieve this simply with a blow dryer. To pull off this look, I run the blow dryer up, toward my scalp, sometimes bending my head over and drying my underneath roots. This pumps up the volume of my hair and fluffs the locks, which gives a more full head of hair appearance.
Here is a picture of me taken at a hair show where my hair was blow dried to create mass volume, and my bangs were swept up and over, as opposed to blow dried straight down, over my forehead (I love bangs)!

This is a fun way to wear my hair! Wide on the sides and out to there!
Even if we don’t have much time to fuss with our hair, there are occasions and events that we attend where we want our hair to stand out and up at attention, flying freely and fully. It makes no real difference the length or the color of your hair, you can blow dry your locks in such a way as to create fluffy volume!

Here are easy ways to pump up the volume of your hair with a blow dryer:

  1. For Maximum Oomph:  Lift sections of your hair toward the sky as you blow dry, directing hot air toward your scalp. This dries the roots in an upright and lifted position, as opposed to flat on your head.
  2. Upside Down:  Turn your head upside down and blow dry the underneath portion of your hair. This adds width to your tresses.
  3. Full Hair at the Crown:  Blow dry the hair forward (toward the face) until it is nearly dry, and then brush it back.
  4. Short Hair:  Hold the hair straight up from the scalp or straight out from the sides, while drying the roots.
  5. Long Hair:  Dry the root area with you head bent forward and the hair hanging upside down.

Mounds of hair match whatever you select to wear!

If you want to kick your fantastic hair up a notch, styling aids, such as sprays, mousses and gels, can enhance your hairstyle even more. The natural abilities of your hair and the amount of fullness you desire will determine which formula is best for you to use on your hair. If your hair is particularly limp, you would want to select a medium-hold or strong-hold volume product for a moderate to severe amount of fullness.
Full Hair Fun Fact: Concentrate the majority of the hair by uplifting near the root area, where the hair tends to lay flat and more lift is needed. This will add fullness at the top of your head.

Texture of hair runs the gamut from limp to thick to coarse to curly. No matter the natural state of your hair, a blow dryer alone can change the lift of your hair!

Big hair truly is fun to wear!
