7 Must-Haves for the Straight Haired Lady

Long, luscious, board-straight hair is in -- but that tangle-free boon of straight hair has its downsides as well.

As a hairstylist, you’ve probably tackled straight hair’s many challenges at least a time or two. But since every head requires a different solution, providing just the right answer can still be a challenge.

Fortunately, there are some incredible products out there that are sure to bail you out when the next customer turns to you with the inevitable question, ‘What do I do?’

1. John Masters Organic Sea Mist with Lavender

What’s to Love?

An organic way to give your hair a little extra volume, this mist is great to give otherwise straight hair those beachy waves.

How to Use it

Simply spray it into the hair after washing and leave it in. Plenty of scrunching is recommended to get those envy-inducing beach waves.
