How to curl hair with a straightener
When mastering the art of curling hair with a straightener, the first thing you need to do is to guard your hair against heat and friction by applying a thermal protectant, focusing on the ends where hair tends to need a little more protection. The easiest way to curl your hair with a straightener is by sectioning your hair into three ponytails, and to then curl each ponytail into three or four curls depending on how thick your hair is. Leave curls to cool completely before snipping the hair ties off, then comb your fingers or wide tooth comb through hair.

What's the best hair straightener?
With so many different and amazing hair straighteners available finding the right straightener to suit you and your hair type is essential. So instead of asking what’s the best hair straightener ask what the best hair straightener for my hair type is.
