When humidity is in the air, it can be difficult to keep thick hair straight all day long. Finding the right combination of products to keep thick hair straight can be tricky! Fortunately for you, Pantene has designed an entire line of products dedicated to keeping your hair straighter for longer. This article will discuss how to keep your thick hair straight from dawn to dusk with Pantene’s line of products for straightening hair.
Pantene has several products that can be used to make hair straighter. Some of the products include their Curls to Straight Shampoo and Conditioner, Medium-Thick Hair Anti Frizz products, Extra Straight Shampoo and Extra Straight Conditioner. Together, these products will help protect the hair’s cuticle from damage and keep your hair smoother and silkier longer, regardless of your hair type.
Straightening Shampoo and Conditioner
Pantene Pro-V Medium-Thick Hair Solutions is a line that is specifically formulated to handle the needs of medium to thick hair. In fact, Pantene’s straight hair experts say that this line can keep hair straighter for up to 18 hours! That’s all day coverage. Medium to thick hair absorbs 40% more moisture from the air than other types of hair. This high rate of moisture absorption makes it prone to frizz, which can make keeping thick hair straight for long periods of time difficult. The medium to thick shampoo and conditioner system minimizes frizz, smooths hair and aligns the strands to keep the hair super sleek.
Straighten & Smooth Crème
After shampooing and conditioning thick hair with Pantene’s shampoo and conditioners, try their Medium-Thick Hair Solutions Straighten & Smooth Crème. This is a thick, velvety formula that can beat humidity with ease. The crème should be worked through the hair from the roots to the tips and can be used on either wet or dry hair. This advanced anti-frizz formula contains smoothing agents that will make hair look shiny and seal the cuticle, preventing humidity from entering the hair shaft and creating frizz.
To safely straighten thick hair, I prefer roller sets to blow drying and flat ironing. Roller setting helps lengthen your hair and smooth it to perfection without direct heat. Roller setting also gives your hair incredible body! Larger rollers will give you a straighter result. Once you’ve dried your roller set under a hooded dryer, gently remove the rollers. Carefully brush your hair out with a round or vented brush. If your hair is textured or curly, you may wish to wrap the hair after roller setting to release the curls for a straighter style. Alternatively, you may wish to use a flat iron to polish the look and add additional shine.
Finishing Hair Spray
As a finishing touch, you may decide to complete the style with a quick misting of a flexible-hold spray like Pantene’s Classic Care Hairspray. If you prefer to stay within the medium to thick solutions line, Pantene’s hairspray formula for medium to thick hair is a super-hold hairspray. This spray keeps out humidity to keep your straight style sleek all day. This formula is available in aerosol and non-aerosol formulas, with the aerosol formula giving you longer-lasting style control and high-octane shine.
