We’re all accustomed to the good old flat iron to straighten curly or wavy hair. But what if there were other ways to achieve straight hair without that classic burnt smell lingering afterwards? Turns out there just might be.
Hairdressings, silicone creams, styling products: these are all liquid solutions to your straightening problem. Coating your hair with silicone creams prevents your hair from curling when it’s dry, and styling products like hairspray and mousse do this too. Silicone cream is more commonly effective despite the greasy look it gives, and styling products take some skill to apply and can make your hair feel and look unnatural. But both wash out of your hair super easily.
Brush and dry
This one takes a bit more skill, but it’s simple once you’ve mastered it. While brushing your hair, simply hold the brush with your hair in it, and blow it dry. It’ll hold this straightened look after it dries, but it can frizz out super easily and fail completely for the curliest of heads.
A beauty professional can apply chemicals to your hair that induce long-lasting effects. Brazilian and Japanese hair straightening, as well as relaxers, achieve this, but damage the hair quite strongly. There can also be a nasty after-scent if it’s not done well.
