How to flat iron at home?



1 step: Shampoo your hair. Apply hair straightening and thermal protection treatments on damp hair.

2 step: Dry your hair completely – either naturally or by means of a hair dryer. 


3 step: Carefully comb your hair and divide it into strands (clip the separate strands). 


4 step: Set your flat iron temperature at the lowest setting suitable for your hair type.


5 step: Taking strands one by one, put them between the plates so that all the hair is covered and clamp the plates together at the base near the scalp. Slide the flat iron smoothly along the hair in an uninterrupted motion to avoid the formation of horizontal lines.


6 step: Put aside the newly straightened strand and fix it with hairspray, styling mousse or gel.
