You Will Need

- Some heat protective serum
- Straightening balm
- Hair clips
- A blow dryer with a nozzle

Blot hair dry
Gently blot your hair dry with a towel.
Apply a heat-protective serum to your hair according to the product directions.
Work in balm
Work a quarter-sized dollop of straightening balm evenly through your damp hair with your fingertips.
Part a line around the back of your head from ear to ear, and clip the top section of hair up.
Divide lower section
Further divide the lower section into smaller sections to dry one at a time.
Blow-dry a single small section at high heat and speed, with the nozzle of the dryer directing the air down from the roots toward the tips.
Run a boar bristle brush down the section as you are drying it.
Brush & dry sections
Brush and blow-dry each section, moving on to the next only when the previous one is completely dry.
Begin top sections
When the lower section of hair is dry, begin drying the top section of hair, again drying one small section of it at a time.
Run some silicone-based gloss through your hair to add extra shine to your chic, sleek locks.
