When I was in high school, I spent a countless number of hours in the mirror, constantly watching Youtubers while trying to learn the best method of straightening my hair.
My mom used to straighten it for me, but it was high time I learned how to do this for myself.

Here are the items you will need to get your straight hair game under way
- Flat iron (SRI Xtreme Health Straightener)
- Pantene heat Primer

First you want to start the straightening process with clean hair. After putting in this much work, you need to keep it like this (straight) for at least 5-7 days, or until your next wash.
After washing and conditioning your hair, blow-drying your hair first is where you should begin
To avoid damaging your hair again and again with a straightener, it’s a good idea to take out the major kinks with a blow dryer before moving onto a Flat iron .

- Lift a small section of your hair with your brush from the underside and apply heat from above, sandwiching the hair between the two tools.
- Move them down the length of your hair slowly with the hair inside of the brush bristles and watch the kinks disappear.

It’s a good idea to allow your hair to air-dry so you’re not using unnecessary extra heat.
