7 Hair Straightening Products For Smooth Locks


I would be lying if I said I didn't love all things revolving around hair. From curling irons and hair masks to smoothing serums and discovering new ways to style the latest trending look, you could probably call me obsessed.

But while I'm always on the hunt for the perfect products to get the undone bend in my hair or the quintessential beach waves, there comes a time when I'm in need of sleek, smooth, and frizz-free straight hair. (Or at the very least, somewhat close to that.)

While on a typical day I might reach for my flat iron to smooth out any bends I have accumulated over the night, oftentimes I try to give myself and my hair a break from hot tools and opt for alternative ways to achieve the sultry sleek look of the '90s à la Rachel Green.
