Because you clicked on this, I’d say it’s safe to assume that you have extremely straight hair, and to that I say: I feel your pain. Like you, I have spent an unnecessary amount of time trying to get nearly any style to stay in my hair for longer than a few minutes. However, after over two decades spent learning how my super straight hair worked, I think I’ve finally locked down just how to make it work, and you can too with this list of tips!

Test out Hairsprays

hair, human hair color, black hair, person, clothing, Maybe I’m the only straight-haired girl with this issue, but I often find that while some hairsprays hold very well in my hair, others seem to make my hair fall even faster. If you have a few bucks to spend (or just happen to already have a lot of hairsprays on hand) spend a free Saturday testing out how different hairsprays work in your hair. It will be worth if you find the perfect hairspray that holds your hair in place!


Wash Your Hair Every Day

hair, black hair, face, photography, beauty, If you’re a girl with straight hair, you’re probably so sick of people telling you that it’s bad to wash your hair every day. If you’ve been listening to those people who don’t know our struggle of having straight hair, try washing your hair every day. Not only will it make your hair look better, but also, clean, straight hair holds styles better than dirty, straight hair, even though that’s not the case with a lot of other types of hair.


Try Heatless Styles

hair, clothing, pink, brown, hair coloring, You’ve probably spent years trying to get heat tools to work in your hair, and there’s a pretty good chance that your efforts have been fruitless, and if they haven’t been completely fruitless, they probably don’t last for very long. Try heatless hairstyles like a sock bun that takes all night to set as you sleep with them in. You may just have a new way to get voluminous curls that last all day!


Set Your Heat Styles with Cold Air

hair, clothing, hairstyle, blond, long hair, If you just can’t give up your heat tools (I’m right there with you!) but can’t get a curl to last for longer than hour, try setting your style with cold air. Cooling down your fresh curls will get your style to set. If you’re really in a pinch and don’t have a blow dryer with a cool setting on it, stick your head in the freezer. It sounds ridiculous and you may get a headache, but it sets your entire head of curls almost instantly!


Use a round Brush and Velcro Rollers for Volume

hair, human hair color, face, black hair, hairstyle, If you just can’t get volume in your hair and you’ve tried the upside-down blow dry method more than once, take it a step further. Get a round brush and run it through your hair while you blow it dry, and as each piece dries roll it up in a Velcro roller. You can even set the Velcro rollers with cool air for a gorgeous blowout, but at the very least you’ll get some volume out of it!

Famous Quotes

To give oneself earnestly to the duties due to men, and, while respecting spiritual beings, to keep aloof from them, may be called wisdom.


Don’t Sleep on Wet Hair

hair, human hair color, face, nose, blond, I think we’ve all learned the hard way not to sleep on wet hair if you have straight hair, but if you haven’t learned that lesson yet, take my word for it. Why is it that I can’t get a single style to hold in my hair, but when I sleep on wet hair I can’t get rid of the knotted, matted mess it became overnight? No flatiron could get rid of that mess, so don’t even try it. If you can’t avoid sleeping on wet hair over night, try to dry your roots and then throw the rest in a sock bun. Your hair in the bun will stay wet overnight and you’ll be able to style it however you please in the morning!


Learn Some Braids

hair, hairstyle, face, braid, long hair, If there’s anything us women with straight hair can do better than anyone else, it's braiding hair. We don’t have to go through multiple steps to get braids. We can let our hair air-dry and then braid it into something interesting. Spend some time learning some cool braids that you can pull out on the mornings you don’t want to deal with your usual ponytail.

I don't have straight hair. I have fine wavy hair and it annoys me so much

Also, good idea to set your curls with cold air whether it be a blow dryer on cool or a fan. Don't pick thru hot/warm curls or they will fall faster

Dry shampoo is great for touch ups though**

Regardless of hair type, the more you wash it the more your scalp produces oils. So if you wash everyday, it will be very greasy very quickly because your scalp is being striped of its natural oils waaaay too often. If you go days without washing your hair will be much healthier and won't produce as much oil because it's still moisturized. Shampoos were only meant to be used once or twice a month. This washing every day thing only started about 50 years ago. Your grandmother or great grandmother probably wash their hair very infrequently. My grandmother washes hers once a month and has for her entire life. She also has straight somewhat thin long hair.

I have to wash my hair everyday cause I do cardio and there is no way I will not shower after a hardcore sweat

I used to wash my hair every single day and somehow that made my hair more oily! I suggest using dry shampoo because not only is it good for you hair, it adds volume! :)

Thank you for thFor an updo I cannot just use bobbypins to secure my hair, because it too straight and heavy. Instead, I pull my hair in a low ponytail and separate it into three braids. I wrap them around each other and then use bobbypins to turn them into braided bun. Stays put all day, even without hairspray!

@Jackie its useful to wash your hair everyday if you have fine, straight hair because some people are prone to greasy hair

I would die to have straight hair

Washing your hair every day can actually dry your hair really bad. Give you more chances of getting split ends as well
