If you have hair that is frizzy and overly full, it can be difficult to get your hair to lay flat in a sleek and silky hairdo. To successfully achieve a flatter hair style, follow a regime where you nourish and deeply hydrate your hair and dry it in a way that will make the hair fall flatter. Once your hair lays flat, you will be able to style it in ways that frizzier hair will not allow.
Things You'll Need
Brush your hair for 10 minutes with a bristle hair brush, starting from the roots and working your way down to the ends. This will pull the oils from the scalp down to the ends of your hair.
Wet your hair thoroughly and apply a moisturizing shampoo. Lather your hair and rinse well with cold water. The cold water will flatten your hair, making it lay down more evenly.
Apply an oil treatment to your hair, working the oil from the ends of the hair up to the roots. Apply the most oil to the ends where the hair is more dry and brittle. An oil treatment is a product that contains oils that keep hair healthy, such as jojoba oil, that does not clog the pores of your scalp. You can purchase a variety of different types of oil treatments at any grocery or drug store. Oil treatments are beneficial for all hair types.
Leave the oil on your hair for 30 minutes.
Shampoo out the oil using the moisturizing shampoo again, as before rinsing with cold water.
Blow dry your hair using the cold setting on your blow dryer. Use a flat brush to brush your hair down as you dry. This will cause your hair to become straighter, allowing it to lay flat.
