So for the life of me, I can't remember the name of the person who requested for me to do a hair straightening video but here it is!
So if we look at the facts, straightening thick frizzy hair just like mine and most likely yours (if you've found this video) can be an extremely big task. But if done properly, it can look awesome!
In my opinion, knowing how to straighten thick frizzy hair starts with knowing the right products to use. As you will see in the video above I've used a heap of different products to give my hair the best result when straightening it and 4 of which are pre-styling hair products.
The first 4 products I use on my before straightening my hair are most beneficial for my hair type (coarse, thick and frizzzy) and are as follows:
#1: bhave Leave-in Creme
If you follow me regularly you will already know why I love this product and what it does. However for those who don't bhave leave-in creme is a leave-in conditioner made from organic ingredients including keratin and what it does is, it helps dry frizzy hair retain moisture and give it a nicer feel thus keeping it in a healthy condition.
Even if I don't straighten my hair this is the one product I use EVERY DAY without fail. If just by looking you can tell your hair is similar to mine, I would try this product out or at least something like it. I also have a promo code with these guys that can get you free shipping on all bhave products for the US, Candian and Australian store. The code is THOMASFREESHIP. enjoy.
#2: bhave Supernova
bhave supernova is a fairly new product from bhave and it's designed to be an elixir for your hair. The ingredients in it keep your hair nice and healthy but the number one thing I like about this product is the shine it gives my hair. If I don't straighten my hair, I don't really see the shine effect of this product. But baby when I do straighten my hair it looks fucking fabulous... just watch the video again haha.
#3: Davroe Straightening Balm
Davroe straightening balm is the freaking bomb! The reason I love using this product is that it gives my hair a really really smooth finish after straightening. It also helps decrease that hideous "poof" you sometimes when you straighten your hair. If you have never heard of a straightening balm, I would also highly recommend trying one out. it'll be your new bestie.
#4: Sebastian Trillant Heat Protector
Look, I'm just going to say this now. Frizzy hair or not use a fucking heat protector! too many people race around blow drying and straightening their mop not giving a fuck and then wonder why their hair ends up all brittle, broken and shitty...
If anything, a heat protector is the most important product to use when you straighten your hair. The one I use is by Sebastian Trillant. I've found this one to work really well. I don't straighten my hair a hell of a lot and I've had this product for like ever but man, I would not be caught dead using heat on my hair without it. Rant over haha.
After I use this 4 products in the pre-styling stage I blow dry my hair and then give it a straighten.
I have a heap of Utensils I use when blow drying and straightening to make life easier and they are as follows:
#1: A Blow Dryer
The blow dryer I use is non-branded and I can't even remember where the hell I got it from. It's cheap and only has one setting but gets the job done.
#2: A Hair Straightener or Iron
I use a GHD V-Opal Styler. GHD is a great brand of straightener alongside Cloud Nine Straighteners which I've also heard are great. They heat up super quick.
#3: A Tail Comb
A Tail Comb comes in handy for sectioning and combing.
#4: Ibis Clips
Over the years of trial and error, I've found ibis clips to be a hell of a lot more useful than a hair tie to hold my hair out of the way. An ibis clip makes sectioning from the back to the front a lot easier because it's you can pull each section out far easier with less fuss. Ibis clips are also cheap and can be found in drug stores and supermarkets.
oops! looks like I've run out of room in the description box so I've posted the rest of this text as a post on my website and you can find it here in the blog section: thomasinaction.com
