Creating straight hairstyles using a ceramic flat iron helps to obtain shiny, sleek looking smooth hair. For this first wash hair, towel dries it to make damp. Spray a thermal protector or a heat protectant. Use a heat protector if you are worried about damage.

Secondly, blow dry hair completely. Wet hair can get burned while ironing. Always use blower to the hair shaft instead of the hair root, as this will cause a ragged and weary look to your hair. In case of unruly and thick hair, partition hair by tying back sections up. One section can be straightened at a time and then move to the next. Place the flat iron towards the roots of the hair and clamp down gently on 1 inch sections of hair.

Smoothly glide the iron in downward direction till it reaches the ends of the hair. The flat iron should not be clamped down too hard. Smoothly glide the tool along the hair starting from the root till the end. For extremely curly hair, it is recommended to run a fine-tooth comb prior to the flat iron so that the hair is already pulled straight as the iron slides down.


Tips

For straightening, take small sections of hair to get better results. Thus all hair will be straightened consistently and there will be less heat transactions over your hair. Make sure to blow dry your hair before applying the flat iron. A paddle brush can be used while drying your hair. Hair should be pulled downwards as you brush through the hair. Once the hair is completely dry, you can use the flat iron and style your hair the way you like.

Care should be taken while handling the flat iron or else it might burn your hair and scalp. For medium to long hairs, use ceramic hair styling brush as helps to handle long hair and get rid of static electricity.
