Want silky, straight strands for Homecoming? With the help of a straightening iron, a few products, and these simple steps you can get shiny, smooth hair without the expensive trip to the salon. Here's how:
1. Apply a leave-in conditioner to damp hair and blow dry. Try Ojon Restorative Leave-in Treatment ($29) to protect hair.
2. Spritz 1-inch sections of hair with a working spray, such as Alterna Caviar Working Hair Spray ($26), then use a flat iron to straighten.
3. Finish with a dime-size amount of shine serum. We love Carol's Daughter Hair Balm ($12) -- it leaves hair impossibly shiny and infused with a deeply intoxicating aroma of gardenia, vanilla, and honey!
