Wash your hair and blow-dry it completely because straightening works best on the washed hair. While washing your hair, use the proper shampoo and conditioner according to your hair type. For frizzy, thick hair use smoothing products while for flat, thin hair make use of volumizing hair products. First, dry your hair with a towel and apply the heat-protection spray. The heat-protection spray should be of good quality which prevents the loss of moisture and prevents your hair from becoming frazzled and dry. Now blow-dry your hair which makes your straightening work less.
Divide your hair into multiple sections so that you straighten your hair properly without missing some strands. Set the temperature of your hair straightening irons or private label flat irons at correct temperature according to your hair type. The right temperature of hair straighteners makes sure that they offer you the best results.
Fine hair: 200-300 degree F
Hair with average thickness: 300-350 degree F
Very coarse or frizzy hair: 350-400 degree F
Choose a strand of 1-2 inches while straightening so that it gives you the best results. After you are done with straightening, examine yourself in the mirror to avoid missing any sections. Use a hair setting spray or silicone serum for holding your hair in place. To get your hair to straighten you can buy hair straightening irons or some private label flat irons which are available at cheaper prices.

Comb your wet hair and divide them from the center. Comb the left section of your hair towards the right and right section of your hair towards the left.
