3 Rules For Sleek Style

three-rules-sleek-style

Free-flowing and fabulous, craft a similar mane move like this on longer lengths by flat-ironing tresses smooth. Whether done on Natural lengths, relaxed or texturized, these three heat-styling rules apply:

Rule 1: Protect. Be sure to prime tresses with a heat protectant spray to “shield” hair against the heat applied.

Rule 2: Section mane. The key to a flawless flat-ironing session is in the prep. Separate mane into 1-2 inch sections prior to flat ironing. Secure hair sections you’re not working on with a duckbill clip so they’ll be out of the way.

Rule 3: Select the right heat setting on your flat iron. Your hair’s texture, length and condition will determine the best heat for styling…and that temperature may not necessarily be the highest setting. Use caution.
