Hi, my name is Claire Coleman. I'm a hair stylist, and I'm going to answer the question of should you straighten your hair before you curl it. There's actually a couple of answers for that question. If your hair is very frizzy, if it's unmanageable, and you want a different curled look than what you have, usually hair that's curled does tend to be a little bit frizzy so it might be a good idea to straighten it out. It's going to seal up your hair shaft and make it easier to manage while you're curling your hair. Also if you have tight curls and you'd like to have more loose waves, definitely straighten it out. That creates more of a foundation for you to be able to build off of that to create the look that you exactly want. If your hair is already straight, you're not going to need to straighten it before hand. So using a straightener to do that is just kind of, it doesn't really make any difference. You're just going to be using your curling iron to get the look that you desire. Basically if you feel that your hair is a little bit on the frizzy side, a straightening iron is really going to help to straighten everything out and make it nice and smooth, and that way your curls will be nice and manageable. My name is Claire Coleman and I just answered the question of should you straighten your hair before you curl it.
