Do you have slightly wavy to wavy hair? Is your hair curly? Do you want that lovely straight look? It can be done. Read on further for products that can give you straight hair. My hair is slightly wavy and I was able to straighten it by using the products listed below.

This is L’Oréal’s ultimate straightening shampoo. Start to straighten hair before the heat. Their Advanced Haircare Smooth Intense Ultimate Straight line starts to straighten hair in the shower. Hair is shiny, straight and perfect for up to 48 hours (based on using the complete system with heat styling tools). The advanced formula shampoo used Pro-Keratin (a protein which penetrates the hair fiber for healthier hair) and Tourmaline (which reacts with a boost from heat to straighten hair from root to tip). It has been clinically tested to show results. Apply the Smooth Intense Ultimate Straight Shampoo, massage into wet hair, lather, rinse. Then after applying shampoo, use the Pre-Conditioner.

Start with shampooing then use the Smooth Intense Ultimate Straight Straight Boosting Pre-Conditioner, which uses Pro Keratin (the protein that makes hair healthier) and Tourmaline (which helps to make hair straighter). Apply the pre-conditioner in the shower after shampooing and leave on for 1 minute. Before rinsing, layer on Smooth Intense Ultimate Straight Conditioner. Leave on 1-3 minutes. Rinse. Then follow with Straight Perfecting Balm.
L’Oréal Paris Advanced Haircare Smooth Intense Ultimate Straight Straightening Conditioner 12.6 fl.oz./375 mL $4.99
Use this conditioner in conjunction with the Smooth Intense Ultimate Straight Pre-Conditioner for perfectly straight hair that starts before the heat. Advanced Haircare Smooth Intense Ultimate Straight starts straightening hair in the shower for hair that is shiny, straight and perfect for up to 48 hours. Apply the conditioner after using the shampoo and pre-conditioner. Leave on for 1-3 minutes. Rinse and follow with the Straight Perfecting Balm. The conditioner also contains Pro Keratin and Tourmaline, which are found in the whole Smooth Intense Ultimate Straight line.
L’Oréal Paris Advanced Haircare Smooth Intense Ultimate Straight Perfecting Balm 5.1 fl.oz./150 mL $6.99
To lock in the “straight” before using heat, use the Advanced Haircare Smooth Intense Ultimate Straight Straight Perfecting Balm. This treatment not only makes hair look sleek before using a straight iron, but it tames and perfects hair, leaving it less prone to heat styling damage. After using the shampoo, pre-conditioner and conditioner, apply a dime-size amount of the balm to towel-dried hair and spread through from root to tip. Blow dry and if necessary, follow with a flat iron.
L’Oréal Advanced Haircare Smooth Intense Frizz Taming Serum 3.4 fl.oz./100 mL $6.99
Smooth Intense Frizz Taming Anti-Frizz Serum is an intense leave-in serum that instantly polishes hair’s surface. It creates an invisible barrier to prevent humidity from getting to hair, it blocks out frizz and locks in sleek, wonderful shine. Even the most out of control strands are tamed. When used with the Smooth Intense line it delivers frizz control for up to 72 hours. The best way to use it is to apply 1-2 pumps to damp hair and distribute evenly throughout hair. Style as usual. On dry hair you can use a small amount to smoth fly-aways and add shine. Do not rinse out.
By using the entire line of shampoo, pre-conditioner, conditioner and perfecting balm you get long lasting results without the long lasting damage to hair that a straightening iron alone provides. Use these products and minimize damage to hair too. Add in the frizz control serum and you have the perfect system. If you would like to have straight hair without using an iron, it can be done. I found that I could use all of these and have straight hair. This is because my hair is wavy, not curly. If you have curly hair, you will definitely need to use a straightening iron to lock in the straight. The results last for at least 48 hours too. The whole system really does work. It actually does straighten hair, on its own with out an iron. I was thinking that it would not work so well, but I was pleasantly surprised that it did.

It is also available from mass market retailers nationwide.
