What exactly is this “hair” that we all love and crave and spend so much time washing, drying, styling and cutting? Hair is a protein filament that grows from follicles found in the dermis. Hair is one of the defining characteristics of mammals. The human body, apart from areas of glabrous skin, is covered in follicles which produce thick terminal and fine vellus hair. Most common interests in hair is focused on hair growth, hair types and hair care, but hair is also an important biomaterial primarily composed of protein, notably alpha-keratin.
Curls are glorious and represent a girl with her sugar and spice, but straight, sensuous, sexy hair always looks nice!
For a knock-out look that will bang one out of the park, wispy or blunt bangs worn with straight hair look youthful, playful and fabulous!
Hair Fun Fact: The word “hair” usually refers to two distinct structures: the hair follicle (the part beneath the skin), and the hair shaft, which is the hard filamentous part that extends above the skin surface. Hair fibers have a structure consisting of several layers, starting from the outside: the cuticle, the cortex and the medulla.
Each and every strand of hair is made up of the cuticle, cortex and medulla.
Silky straight hair, when flowing down the back, can cause an eye popping, alluring heart attack! Sheer straight beauty.
How do you obtain straight hair, especially if your hair tends to be naturally wavy or curly?
Three Ways to Straighten Your Hair:
- Using a hot iron or flat iron
- Using a blow dryer or hair dryer
- Using natural ways
Hot irons work well because they provide heat, and heat acts as a hair straightener. If you take small sections of your hair, and run the hot/flat iron down each section from the scalp to the ends, your hair will obtain the silky straight texture that you are trying to create.
Hair dryers and blow dryers work much the same way. If you take a sturdy, good styling brush and place the blow dryer on your roots, then take the brush the entire way down to your ends, keeping the blow dryer moving along with the brush, your hair will automatically straighten. This is why if your hair is damp and wavy, applying heat from the blow dryer and continually brushing the hair, the waves will be removed.
For cost effective flat irons and blow dryers that work magical hair wonders, why not try one of these items?
For hair that is sure to mesmerize and illuminate, go straight!
Straight Hair Fashion Tip: For those of you with brittle or damaged hair, you can still obtain glamorous, silky, straight tresses naturally! Good news!
WAYS TO STRAIGHTEN YOUR HAIR NATURALLY:
- Brush wet hair until it dries.
- Wrap wet hair tightly. You can wrap your wet hair in a silk scarf and sleep on it to reduce frizz.
- Roll your hair. This works with large rollers. Let your hair dry completely before you remove the rollers, then brush.
- Ponytails. Divide damp hair into two low ponytails, then add additional elastics every inch or so down the ponytail to hold the hair together. When the hair is dry, remove the ponytails and elastic. Brush to straighten.
- Twist hair into a bun. Wrap damp hair into a bun and don’t cover…let your hair air dry, the brush out.
To all of these methods, add a few drops of sweet almond or coconut oil to tame frizz and smooth out the look. For selfie or magazine ready hair, spray hair gloss over the hair. Beautiful, alluring and easy hair care!
Straight hair is chic, stylish, trendy and classy, for a head of hair that mixes sweet school girl with savvy and sassy!
