When it comes to pin-straight hair, they are what most of my clients need, and some of them have thick and difficult hair to deal with but, with years of experience in the hairstyling industry, I have a lot of tricks up my sleeve.
How to get pin-straight hair
I will share those tips and tricks with you because I have hair styled tons of people, so I can help you get pin-straight hair at home without any hassle, and trust me, there is nothing better than that heat-styled hair because they can nail every event. Let’s get right into it because I know you are excited about my tips.
Setting The Right Heat
As we have discussed above, setting the best temperature for hair straightener can be a big lifesaver, and if you set the heat according to your hair type and hair texture, you can straighten the curliest of hair without any hassle.
The same goes for pin-straight hair because you can only get that silk-pressed look when your heat settings are at a specific temperature, and you can quickly figure out what that temperature is after the detailed guide.
Hair Spraying Before Straightening
It can be a beneficial trick because I have been applying it to all my clients, and I am not disappointed with the results because using hair spray on hair before straightening them ensures the pin-straight hair that most people want from hairstylists.
Make sure that you are not applying a lot of hair spray as it should be light, and it will help reduce frizz from your hair and even keep your hair straight for much longer than you would expect. This trick is my holy grail, and I guess it will be yours as well.
If you want pin-straight hair without worrying about the damage this heat might cause, make sure always to use a hair protectant, as it can save your hair from damage and prevent burning or breaking down. It would be best if you were using a heat protectant to style your hair with a straightener or a curling iron.
Many heat protectants even work as serums and can help you hold the styled look for longer and give you that pin-straight hair you want. Using a heat protectant was a tiny change that I brought in my styling routine, and it has been my staple since then because of the results it delivers every single time.
Let The Hair Cool Down In Peace for Pin Straight Hair
The most painful thing in the world is seeing your client tuck the hair behind her ear right after you have straightened them so perfectly. Yes, it does affect the hair, and tucking the hair will not make them stay pin straight.
So, the key is to let your hair cool down before doing anything to them as even tucking behind the ear can result in curves which you certainly don’t want so, allowing your hair to cool down after straightening them will do the deed of keeping them straight for longer.
Dry the hair completely
You can never get the silk press look that you want if your hair is not completely dry from roots to tips. Most people just come out of the shower and blow-dry their hair for a few minutes and then go on with straightening.
It is not going to work if your ultimate goal is to get perfectly straight hair so, blow dry or air dry your hair properly and make sure that they are not wet before moving on with your straightening. It is my go-to trick, and I always blow-dry my clients’ hair, just in case.
Setting temperatures and getting pin-straight hair can be difficult, but not if you know your hair type and the optimal temperature for a hair straightener. This kind of knowledge makes it much easier for you to decide.
I hope that my post provided you with this information and that you will now have no trouble controlling the temperature of your straightener. Simply give it a shot and use all the advice I’ve provided; trust me, you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
From my end, adios!
