Flat Iron Techniques for Everyday Hair

The flat iron can be used to straighten your hair, curl it or give you a beautiful wave depending on how you use it. Here are some tips on using a flat iron and getting the best results possible.

  • Find the right size for you by researching online or going to an electronics store and trying out different sizes on your hand.
  • Always start with freshly washed, conditioned, and combed through hair before using any heat tool on it. This will help protect your scalp from excess oils that may build up if not washed out properly beforehand, especially if you have greasy skin like me.
  • For faster styling and less time spent in front of the mirror, I recommend using hairspray about 30 minutes before styling with a flat iron because it helps prevent frizz.
  • Before you begin, remember that heat protection spray will help protect the ends of the strands from being damaged when near any heat source. Start with freshly washed, conditioned, and towel-dried hair before applying any products to it, as they can cause damage if used too soon after shampooing or conditioning.
  • It’s essential not only to use a good quality product but also to make sure it’s specifically designed for what you’re doing with it
  • Don’t forget to curl up and away from your face as you work on each section;
  • Once finished, use hairspray to set the look and seal any frizzies. Now that you know how easy it is to add texture and volume without all those pesky flyaways.

The flat iron is one of the most versatile tools in a woman’s hairstyling arsenal. Whether you have natural hair, textured curls, or straight locks, there are plenty of ways to create different looks with this essential tool.
