This blog focuses on embracing naturally wavy hair, so this is a bit of a unique topic for this blog. I know that some people with wavy hair do want to make their hair more straight, though.
Plus, I have the post how to make wavy hair curlier. In that post I talked about how I don’t think there is any hierarchy of good/better/best hair patterns. So while it’s fine to want curlier hair, it’s also fine to want straighter hair. I did the ‘curlier’ post, so I thought I’d do the ‘straighter’ post, too. While I prefer to embrace my waves these days, for many years I preferred straighter hair. From about age 13 to 23 I didn’t actually recognize my hair was wavy, but I wanted sleeker, smoother, straighter hair.
If that’s you, I totally get it! Nothing wrong with having those preferences. I straightened my hair daily for many years, but I also utilized other tips and tricks to make my hair sleeker. There were other things I was doing to help straighten out my hair that I didn’t even realize was doing it. Anyway, here are all the ways I know of to make wavy hair straighter.
