The Dominican technique is one of the most popular ways to straighten hair. It works on African-American, Latino, Caucasian, or any other hair types.


Things You'll Need

Wash and condition your hair. There are many natural products used to soften the hair and protect it from heat. Try a line called Silicon Mix that includes shampoo, conditioner, leave-in conditioner, and shine polisher.

Roller set your hair with magnetic rollers and sit under a hair dryer until your hair is almost dry. Remove the rollers and comb through and brush your hair.

Apply leave-in conditioner and begin the straightening technique by using the round brush and the blow dryer. Use a dryer with a concentrator nozzle so you can direct the heat to the particular area you’re straightening. Use serum, polisher, or oil sheen to get your locks shiny. Your hair should be lightweight and bouncy, not weighed down.
