BaByliss Pro straighteners straighten curly and frizzy hair, giving it a smooth and sleek look. Straighteners, when used correctly, can straighten the kinkiest and coarsest hair. Many of the BaByliss Pro straighteners have ceramic plates, which are more gentle on your hair than steel or other non-ceramic plates. Using the BaByliss Pro, along with healthy hair care practices, can achieve a beautiful, sleek look.
Things You'll Need
- Heat protectant spray
- Straightening balm
Use a heat protect spray or straightening balm on dry hair. Heat protectant spray will protect your hair from the heat of the flat iron. A straightening balm will help eliminate frizz and protect your hair from the heat of the flat iron.
Remove your BaByliss Pro flat iron from its packaging. Plug the flat iron into your wall socket.
Set the temperature for your hair texture. Many of the BaByliss Pro flat iron tools can be heated up to 450 degrees. The average temperature for each hair texture according to Folica.com is below 360 degrees for thin or fine hair, between 360 to 380 degrees for normal, medium or wavy hair and between 380 to 410 degrees for coarse or curly hair.
Allow the flat iron to heat up. Part your hair in one- to two-inch sections, depending on the size of your flat iron's plates.
Clamp the plates over the base of your hair. Be careful not to clamp the plates too close to your scalp or you will burn. Glide the flat iron down the hair shaft. You may have to do this twice to get your hair straight.
Continue with the rest of your hair. Style your hair as usual.
