How to Create Romantic Waves With a Straightener, Glam Hair Style

I’m in love with this finesse hair look! After I took the photos, I wore it to work and received a ton of compliments. This has become my go to look and with some dry shampoo it will last for days! So keep this style in mind for any day, not just special occasions.

You can accomplish a slug with a curling iron as well. I just like to use a straightener because I have more control over the curl. Don’t forget to use heat protectant to keep your and from split ends.

Why Use Heat Protectant For Your Hair

Safe to say, using a heat protectant doesn’t rank particularly high on most people’s hair care list. In fact, we’re going to take a wild guess that the majority are currently baking their hair to a crisp with their hot tools on a daily basis. Sounds a bit harsh, right?

I don’t mean to scare you, but that’s basically what you’re doing to your precious hair every time you use hot tools without protection ( that goes for hairdryers, as well).

Keratin can start to get damaged at just 160°C and that’s also the lowest setting on most hair straighteners. Which means that your mane is weakened every time you use hot tools, making it less resistant to styling and brushing. ( causing split ends)

  • Sleek, soft and shiny hair
  • Protects your hair from heat damage
  • Enhance the effectiveness of styling tools
  • Reduces the chances of general damage
  • Creates a protective layer/barrier
  • Prevents the cuticle from being exposed to extreme heat
  • Helps smooth the hair surface
  • Stops your hair from being frazzled/heat damage

Remember: because hair is dead, once the damage has been done, there’s no going back. It will not repair itself. So the best – and really, the only – choice you have is prevention AKA using a heat protectant.

Quick tip:

Using a bristle brush will help distribute the natural oils of your hair making your lovely waves look soft, shiny and luscious.

  • add dry shampoo the day before your hair starts to get oily so that the oils are absorbed on the scalp. Then your curls can last even longer.
