Straight Hair Routine

Here is a routine to guide you through caring for straight hair types:
  1. Shampoo: Wash straight hair two to three times a week with a mild, sulfate-free shampoo to keep the scalp and hair clean. Avoid over-washing as it can strip the hair of its natural oils, causing dryness and damage. Rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water.

  2. Condition: Apply a moisturising conditioner to the ends of the hair to keep it hydrated and smooth. Gently comb the conditioner through the hair using a wide-tooth comb, then rinse thoroughly with cool water.

  3. Protect: Apply a heat protectant spray or serum before using heat-styling tools, such as a flat iron or blow dryer, to protect the hair from damage. Use low or medium heat settings and avoid using heat-styling tools too frequently.

  4. Air-dry or Blow-dry: Let the hair air dry or use a blow dryer on low heat. Use a paddle brush to detangle the hair while blow drying to achieve a smooth, straight finish.

  5. Protect while Sleeping: Avoid going to bed with wet hair as it can cause breakage. Use a silk or satin pillowcase to prevent hair from rubbing against rough surfaces and causing friction that can lead to breakage.

  6. Use Oils: Apply natural oils, such as argan or coconut oil, to the ends of the hair to keep them hydrated and healthy. Avoid applying oils to the scalp as it can lead to greasiness.

  7. Trim: Regularly trim the ends of straight hair to prevent split ends and breakage, maintaining its sleek, healthy look.

By following these steps, those with natural straight hair can maintain their hair's natural beauty and achieve healthy, smooth-looking locks.
