Having unruly or especially unmanageable hair can mean you end up spending a lot of time day-dreaming about a smoother, sleeker look. The good news is, those day-dreams can become a reality once you arm yourself with the right styling and haircare techniques!

The truth is that you just don't have to put up with frizz, flyaways and other kinds of hair behaving badly, thanks to a whole lot of easy-to-use products and styling tools.

The go-to method

Straightening hair with a flat iron is one of the oldest and easiest ways to help get your locks looking sleeker and smoother in a matter of minutes. The thing is, constant heat styling can fry your hair and cause damage that will look anything but sleek and smooth. To protect against this, you should ALWAYS use a heat protectant, such as Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray before using a flat iron.

Fight the frizz

If your hair is particularly troublesome, another great way to promote a sleeker texture is with a blowout. Check out L'Ortéal Paris spokesmodel Jennifer Lopez on the red carpet if you don't quite believe us...

Simply apply Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Frizz Vanisher Serum through your hair and blow-dry using a barrel brush. When you're done, apply a little Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand-Smoother Serum Spray if you want even sleeker results.

Happy shiny hair

Taking good care of your hair is also really important to help get sleek, healthy-looking results. Make sure you're using a shampoo and conditioner that promote sleek hair and always use heat protection before any kind of styling - whether it's a flat iron, blow-dryer or curling iron. It's also a really good idea to take a break from the heat every now and then and allow hair to air-dry whenever you have time.
