Straight is Great!

Believe it or not, stick straight hair is back in style. So get your dusty flat iron out of storage and make sure it is in working condition for Spring. We've already seen tons of straight hair on the Fall runways and now again at the Oscars from Gwyneth Paltrow, Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, Ellen Pompeo, Kelly Preston and Zizi Zhang. Here are some new products that can help you achieve your own Oscar winning look.

Oscar Blandi Raffinata Pure Straight, $19, is a balm designed to smooth out any type of hair without weighing it down. It acts as a straightening agent by deeply penetrating into the cuticle of your hair as well as provides protection against heat damage caused from styling tools.

Simply rub a dime sized amount into your hands and rub evenly all over your towel-dried hair beginning from the ends and working your way up toward your roots. Then, blow dry hair straight. You will notice this product significantly reduces your drying time!

For one more straightening product,

Frédéric Fekkai Straight Away, $17.50, is a featherweight styling balm that helps to achieve straight hair when blow drying.

Even if your hair is naturally wavy or curly, it will help relax your hair instantly. It washes out - so it's perfectly safe for permed hair...and since it's made from pure botanicals, it smells delicious!

I need some curve and lift, stick straight looks bad on me, and it's so 90's.

I've never tried any product similar to this. My hair is one of those spongy, curly types. Do this products really work?

I like body and bounce...stick straight isn't as beautiful to me(hence, gwenyths look now). Maybe if it has a little wave in the right spots. I have naturally wavy hair and it's looong, so no way I am going to spend every waking moment straightening it! Although I do it sometimes for fun. I think whatever is natural on you and your face shape is best. HAHAHAHAHa..yamahamama-that was hilarious :ROTFL: it's true though, some people can't pull off straight, it accentuates certain eh-hem....features.

Quietriott-I, too have naturally curly hair that I like to straighten every so often, and I find the same thing-after it's been straightened, I have a really good "curly hair day" the next time I wash it. I like Paul Mitchell's Skinny Serum.

i have naturally curly hair and occasionally will get bored and straighten it. i use the frederic fekkai straight away and WOW it gets straight. granted i have to blow dry it and run a straightener through it to get rid of some of the remaining kinks, but this is the best straightening product i've come across for curly hair. and i find that if i straighten it, don't wash it for a day or so, then go back to curly the curls get super defined. don't know why....

Bleah. Nothing about me is straight. I like waves & mine are natural. My friend had kinky-curly hair & she was so excited when she got it straightened. It was "different", but imo, it made her nose look really huge.
