Measure a 2cm wide lock from the lower part of the hair, comb it and insert between the ceramic plates of the straightener.

How to make your hair stay straight all day long?

Quick help during hair-straightening

As the hair sometimes simply refuses to obey or hairdressing is causing you trouble.

Has everything not gone to plan? No panic, even the greatest professionals do not always succeed. We have asked a professional hairdresser for advice about your greatest trouble related to forming a perfectly smooth hairstyle. Look at the advice on how to straighten your hair at home.

I use a hair-straightener every day. Does this damage my hair?

Every heat treatment of your hair can potentially damage the structure of your hair. This is because the heat dries the inside of the hair, which is, consequently, reflected in a rougher surface and split ends. In the long-term, this can cause hair-breaking. If you really cannot avoid daily hair-straightening, make sure that your hair-straightener is of high quality. High-quality ceramic plates and active ion technology will protect your hair against damage. However, you should certainly always protect your hair against damage caused by heat treatment by using an appropriate hair care product.

Why does my hair look greasy and without any volume after using the straightener?

Hair can be greasy and without any volume due to the wrong direction of straightening.  If you smooth the lock of the hair straight downwards with a straightener, it will lose all its volume and the hairstyle will also have no volume.  This is why you should slightly lift the hair and then straighten it. Thus, you will preserve the volume and make the hairstyle certainly more luxuriant.

I can set different temperatures of straightening plates on the straightener. Which temperature should I choose?

Temperature selection depends mainly on the type of hair. The basic rule is to set a higher temperature for straightening stronger hair and lower for straightening thinner, coloured or damaged hair. A temperature that is too high will cause deep damage to the hair, but if the temperature is too low, you will not achieve the desired effect and will have to straighten the hair several times. The easiest way to determine the exact setting is by trying, with the recommended temperature ranging from 190 °C to 210 °C. 

Can I use the straightener on wet hair?

We advise against it! The hair must be completely dry before straightening it. If you notice a large amount of steam escaping from the hair while you are straightening it, stop the straightening and dry the hair additionally with a hair-dryer. You should also make sure to remove all hairdressing products that are not suitable for heat treatment (e.g. hair lacquer) from the hair before straightening it.

Why does my hair turn into a "lion's mane" on a rainy day after using the straightener?

Humidity has always been an enemy of straightened hair. Since you have taken moisture from your hair by using a straightener, it is more susceptible to the absorption of humidity from the air. Thus, it will absorb the humidity on a rainy day and result in the so-called "lion's mane". Although there is no perfect solution for this annoyance, you can mitigate the consequences of a rainy day by using a gentle setting lotion which will create a protective filter on your hair or a headgear protecting your hair against moisture. 

Passionate red

You have coloured your day in red. What does this mean?

Red is the colour of energy, passion and action. It is a warm and positive colour expressing strong will and determination. Your choice of colour means that you are an ambitious and persistent person adoring dynamics and increasingly higher goals.  Your day is full of passion and daring moves and your every movement is accompanied by self-consciousness. Your every decisive action and self-conscious appearance will be best stressed by smoothly straightened hair adding a note of glamour and sophistication to your flawless look.
