Using Hair Bands to Straighten Your Hair
- Hair should be washed and conditioned. To lock moisture into your hair, use a moderate shampoo and a heavy-duty conditioner. Shampoos that include surfactants or sulfates can harm your hair.
- Using a microfiber towel, wring out any excess moisture from your hair. Rubbing the hair too hard might result in breakage and frizz. To remove extra water, just squeeze portions of hair using a microfiber cloth. To absorb water and decrease frizz, use a microfiber towel.
- Comb your hair using a detangling comb. These combs are designed with broader teeth to detangle your hair without snagging it. To smooth the hair, even more, use a fine-toothed comb.
- Make two pigtails with your hair. Pigtails should begin near the nape of your neck; higher pigtails will cause the hair to kink more as it dries. Elastic hair bands are used to keep the hair in place.
- Wrap elastic hair bands around the pigtails at regular intervals. Wrap an elastic hairband around each pigtail every 2 to 3 inches (5.1 to 7.6 cm). If you wrap the hair too tightly, it will form bumps as it dries. You should finish up with pigtails that appear to be "striped."
- Wrap a silk scarf around your head to complete the look. Using bobby pins, secure the hair. The silk will keep your hair from tangling while it dries, as well as reduce moisture loss and frizz. This style allows you to sleep peacefully, or you may do it first thing in the morning if you don't have someplace to be for a few hours.
- Remove the scarves, pins, and hair bands from your hair. Using a wide-toothed comb, comb through the hair. A bristle brush should be avoided because it can cause frizzing.
