My hair is so stubborn when it comes to straightness it.

First thing I did was buy a really decent pair of hair straighteners. I say buy, I got my ex to buy me a pair of GHD's for my birthday a few years back, haha. They make a drastic difference to how straight your hair stays throughout the day. My friend has immense, curly hair and they even manage to tame her hair.

Straightening gels/sprays work really well, and usually come with heat protection too so it's saving your hair any damage. I personally avoid straightening shampoos and conditioners because I find it makes my hair really heavy but it may work differently with your hair.

And perhaps the most important thing to do is to take your time and do it all in thin layers. It can take a while, especially if you have thick hair like me, but it ensures all of your hair is straight and more intensely so.

You should try finding a moisture blocking shampoo and conditioner. It is usually called humectress. Also try any type of frizz blocker/anti frizz.
Air spray is a no no. Also you live in England and it is pretty moist there that is why I to use moisture blocking products because any type of wetness to your hair, even if it is just in the air it will take the straightness out of your hair.


Always remember to put your happiness first.

Your welcome. I live in Florida and it rains a lot here in summer because of hurricanes and Im going to need to get some because I love me some straight hair. They really do work, at least in my case and friends case. So I hope they help for you as well.

Also if you you have problems with frizz try anti-frizz products as well.


Always remember to put your happiness first.

Gahhh I hate when this happens to me. I bought a new straightner when my old one died and thank god it works well with my hair now. I do have this straightening gel that you put in your hair when its wet and it works well. But mostly I have to straighten it in tiny layers and strands, and when it gets wavy at school i usually have to end up brushing it and itll go back to straight. But good luck finding something that works for youu.

I spent years and hours a day straightening my curly hair. I'd have a bath at night, then straighten for two hours whilst on msn, then again for half an hour in the morning. Until I gave up and embraced my inner curliness. After a month of not straightening my hair the curls started being defined and lovely.

I know this isnt what you asked, but yeah.

You can try straightening gels or even a new straightner. Also this line of products is really great.

First, I'd take a look at the straightener you're using. If you're using a cheap $15 one from the drugstore, that could be part of your problem. This isn't saying you need to replace your current one for some ridiculously expensive one, but it's worth thinking about.

Some other things you should consider are your shampoo and conditioner. What kind of hair is it for? Flat hair, curly hair, thick hair, dry hair? You're going to want a shampoo and conditioner that are for trying to get your hair straighter. Some hair shampoos and conditioners I'd recommend would be the following:
Matrix Essential's sleek.look line
Loreal Vive Pro Smooth Gloss line

You can also buy products that are meant to keep hair straight.
Redken Protective Straightening Lotion
Redken Iron Silk
I'm a huge fan of all Redken products when it comes to keeping styles in place. Paul Mitchell also has really great products for shampoos, conditioners, and treatments to keep things straight. You can also check out some of Aussie's anti-humidity things; I hear they're really good.

You can check out folica.com for reviews on a bunch of hair products, as well, if you like to do your reading before buying anything.

Lee Stafford the celeb hair stylist does some amazing stuff. You can get it in Boots and it isn't too expensive.

Look for his "Poker Straight" range. There is shampoo, conditioner, heat protection, shine serum, straightening balm, heat protection, dry shampoo and over night treatments.

My favourite is the dehumidifier spray. I can straighten my hair, spray this and go out in the rain and my hair stays straight and doesn't frizz up.

I find products like this work best if you use everything from the same range so they work together.

Make sure your straightener is as good quality as you can afford. Look for one with a warranty too (I got a new 250$ straightener for free when my last one broke). Also, always use a heat protectant spray, and any type of product that will reduce frizz. I really like treseme because theyre cheap and work well. When you hairspray your hair make sure you are not just covering the top layer of hair, and that all hair has even amounts.

it definitely has to do with the straightner. the hotter it gets the better. in this case, the higher the price is definitely better.
