Firstly, arm yourself with a great hair brush for straight hair, and read on.

How to use your hair brush

Many hair types can only be brushed when either wet or dry, but you lucky people with straight hair can brush your hair whenever!

When it’s wet, we advise popping on a dollop of leave-in conditioner and brushing it through before styling, starting from the bottom and then working your way up to the roots.

Once you’re satisfied that the tangles are all out, you can brush all the way through your hair from root to tip for a final smooth.

Also brushing your hair when it’s dry from root to ends ensures that the natural oils from your scalp get dispersed down and stop your hair from drying out.

Get regular trims

This is something all hair types benefit from! Having a trim every six to eight weeks encourages healthy growth, and keeps the dreaded split ends at bay which straight hair types are particularly prone to.

When you get your hair cut, you can discuss with your stylist what type of cut will suit your hair type and face shape best to create a stunning look.

Avoid too much heat styling

Tools like hair dryers and straighteners can suck the life and the moisture out of your locks.

If you must use heat styling tools, make sure to use a good quality heat protector spray before you get started.

Wash it regularly

Natural oils can collect more easily in straight hair making it look greasy, so ensure you’re washing your hair regularly to stop this build up.

In between washes, dry shampoo is straight hair’s best friend: refreshing your roots and adding volume.

Don’t overload it with products

When you’ve got straight hair, the temptation can be to overload it with products to try and get more volume.

Using just a small amount of product can achieve the same effect, keep your hair in great condition and not clogged up with huge amounts of mousse or hairspray.

Sleep in silk

And no, not your pyjamas! Investing in a silk pillowcase or a silk cap to pop over your head at night can reduce friction and stop your hair from being frizzy when you wake up in the morning.
