Whats wrong with curly hair. i love curly hair on guys

ANYWAY.
To get straighter hair. Use a hairdrier after washing and brush your hair as you dry.
Secondly...Well, use straighteners

You can try shampoo to straighten your hair.
And brush it out while you dry it with a hair dryer.

And of course, a straightner would be best.

Buy shampoos/conditioners that are to help for straight hair.
I bought head and shoulders smooth and silky and I have notice that my hair is a lot more straighter (but not completely) then before. With out using a hair dryer and such. But you could get the shampoo and conditioner and then do the hair dryer and it could come out even better.


Always remember to put your happiness first.

Honestly if your hair is really curly you should just embrace the curls. Go get an expensive haircut (they generally know how to cut curly hair better) and ask your hairdresser what kind of products they would recommend.

I've done the whole chemically straightened hair thing and it really is not worth it (in my opinion). The chemicals are bad for your hair, can burn your scalp, plus you need to get it redone every time your hair grows a noticeable amount. Also, when my hair was relaxed, it still needed to be blow dried and straightened.

If you don't want to spend much time, effort or money embrace the curls.

When it gets longer, it may slightly straighten on its own from the weight of it, depending on how extreme the curl is.
