Long, lustrous and straight hair often tops the beauty lust list for many women. Some are born with it, while others need to work at it. If you fall into the second category, here’s a quick how-to on using a hair straightening cream.

Cleanse and condition

Start by washing your scalp and the mid-lengths of your hair with a nourishing shampoo. Once you rinse your hair, take a dollop of conditioner and apply it to the lengths of your hair and leave it on for 5 to 7 minutes. Then use warm water to wash your hair.

All in the application

When your hair is slightly damp, apply the BedHead By TIGI Straighten Out cream all over your hair. Then run your fingers through the length of your hair to make sure the cream’s been applied evenly. Post this, you can either use a flat iron to straighten your hair or opt for a blow-dry if you want more volume.

How it works

The thermosetting polymers of the cream work in tandem with hot irons to enhance your straight hair and its shine. With its conditioning agents and ability to defy 98% humidity to improve the manageability of hair as well as control frizz, this is probably the best hair straightening cream to help you achieve sleek, poker straight locks.
