ion straightner i got from sallys works the best for me. put it on tower dried hair then blowdry then flat iron. some days it lasts a couple of days.

but avoiding heat stying your hair and focusing on using building and moisturizing products will help your hair smooth out and behave and look healthier

Use Redken starch before styling.

Youll be amazed!!!

Or blow dry at night, flat iron in the AM.

john frieda has product called 3-day straight. i haven’t tried it, so i don’t know how well it actually works, but john frieda products are usually pretty good. i may try it myself. i have curly hair and i always have to touch it up with a flat iron after sleeping on it.

I know what you mean.  When I have my hair professionally straightened at the salon, my hair will stay soft, straight, silky and shiny until I decide to wash it.  I normally wash my hair every day. However, because it looks so great after my stylist blow dries and uses a flat iron on it, I will sometimes be able to get two or even three days out of that style.  However, when I blow dry and straighten my own hair, by the time I wake up the next day, it’s not nearly as straight or as smooth as when my stylist has straightened it.

I have fine, wavy hair too. My latest discovery is that putting it up in a loose knot with a loose hair fastener works really well. My hair is below my shoulders and it was making me crazy at night, so I was just trying to sleep better but I found out by accident that it made my hair better in the morning:)

When I mentioned this to my hairdresser, she told me the best thing to use is the top of a knee high stocking, cut it off and then you have something that will keep your hair smooth on top of your head without putting lines or kinks in it. I just use a stretched out hair elastic.

Now, I noticed my hair is really shiny smooth and bouncy in the morning, but it has a BIT of a wave, which I like. But if you just brush it out, it should straighten out nicely.

Or you could try the Brazilian hair straightener. Total magic:)

Well, my hairdresser said that the cut off top of a knee-stocking makes a super-soft fastener that doesn’t leave marks in the hair while you sleep.

She does hair for t.v. so I would trust her. Lol. Anyway, just brush your hair up on top of your head and fasten it into a loose knot. Wake up and brush:)

The Brazilian hair treatment is to DIE for. It works SO well and depending on how fast your hair grows, it lasts about six months.

It makes curly/ wavy hair smooth and straight ALL the time. No blow-dryers or flat-irons needed! My friend has really curly hair and she said all she does is wash it and let it dry. It looks FAB.

But some people think the chemicals are bad, but really it’s the hairdresser who gets the most exposure. I plan on trying it out asap:)

Oh, well. Don’t even THINK about putting those chemicals on your scalp. Yikes! Have a healthy pregnancy and THEN turn your hair into a chemical site:)

And you can just try putting your hair up with a soft scrunchie too. Just don’t make it too tight and keep the knot loose.

Good luck:)
