Technique 1: Use a brush
The curls on virgin Indian Wet and Wavy hair are meant to naturally curl and relax without any chemical manipulation. As a matter of fact all you have to do is wet it with a little water and allow the hair to form its own waves and curls. But what if it is a ‘straight hair day’ for you and you want to see what a sleeker style would look like?
The technique is also simple: Use a round brush and slowly smooth out the curls and waves brushing the hair down ward so that it can adopt the style you are trying to achieve. Tip: make sure the hair is completely dry when brushing and work in small sections to ensure the look is achieved all over the head. You will get a kinky straight effect with this method.
Technique 2: A Little Heat Action
The use of a flat iron on tighter curl patterns may help you to go from wet and curly to sleek and straight. For this technique to work you will need to have the hair properly secured to your head so that you can effectively use the iron without adding too much heat and passing the iron a bunch of times over the hair. Tip: use the brushing technique described above before using the flat iron to get rid of tangles and prepare the hair for heat styling.
Use a Blow Dryer
Another way to achieve a straighter style from your wet and wavy hair is by using a comb or brush attachment on a hair dryer. The hair dryer when set to a warm setting uses much less heat than would a flat iron and you will be able to achieve the same result. It is not recommended that you wash, blow-dry and flat iron the hair in order to achieve your straight style. Wet and wavy hair is meant to curl up when wet, it is however recommended that the hair be completely dry when attempting to blow dry it straight or flat iron as mentioned above.
It should be noted that repeating the straightening process very often will eventually relax the curl pattern of the hair and it will require more heat each time in order to get the sleek look your desire. Moving from curly to straight in moderation however will not damage the curls and will allow you to have the benefit of the variety that the hair brings.
