Those with naturally frizzy or textured hair know what it's like to reach for a flat iron day in and day out for a smooth finish. I one of the quickest ways to achieve shiny and uniform locks, but it can be quite damaging to hair over time. Even when paired with heat-protectant, hair is at risk of becoming dry and losing its natural texture. Even if you can only manage it once a week, give your hair a break from the iron. Self-adhesive rollers allow you to leave home with salon-worthy straight hair, without the risk of frying your locks.
Wash your hair with a straightening shampoo and rinse completely. Shampoos containing keratin and argan oil are best as they smooth and strengthen the cuticle for a long-lasting style.
Apply deep conditioner to your hair from roots to tips and leave on for 5 minutes before rinsing well. Opt for an oil-based product that blocks humidity.
Use a microfiber towel to gently squeeze the ends of your hair dry. This will remove excess moisture without causing dryness.
Work a dime-size amount of anti-frizz serum through your hair from mid-length to ends.
Comb your hair from roots to tip with a wide-tooth comb to detangle and evenly distribute product.
Place a large self-adhesive roller underneath the end of a 2-inch section of hair, and roll it to your scalp. Select 2- or 3-inch rollers for the best smoothing.
Use a hair clip to secure the roller to your head if necessary. Thicker hair often needs a bit of extra help staying in place.
Roll all remaining hair in rollers, using 2-inch sections.
Allow your hair to air-dry completely. All moisture has to be removed in order to lock out frizz.
Remove the rollers once hair is dry. Gently brush hair using a natural-bristle brush to smooth and add shine.
Hold a can of anti-humidity hairspray 10 inches away from your head, and coat hair from roots to tips to seal the style.
