-Get rid of frizzy hair. Maybe you’ve noticed that when you use a flat iron on your hair, it helps get rid of frizz. If you feel the anti-frizz treatments aren’t enough, put a straightener through your hair.

Things You May Need:
Hair protectant: especially if you have dry hair, you’d want to protect it from the heat. Constant styling of your hair with heated tools like a flat / curling iron, can be damaging. Also heat protectants add shine & help combat frizz!
Hair spray: You’ve spent some time styling your hair, you’d want the look to last. This is actually the hairspray that they use in the salon I go to; I love it because it has a flexible hold without making hair hard or crunchy.
