I really want a change! my curls are straight down and are boring me. If someone knows whats best to do for it to look this way, please help me!

Short Natural Curly to Straight Hair

Short Natural Curly

Short Natural Curly

I am 58 and have short, naturally curly hair. It has NO style and I can't seem to get a decent cut. I've always wanted straight, smooth hair. It takes a long time to use the flat iron or the curling iron.

Isn't there something that I can do to get the hair I want -- OR, be able to do a decent job of handling my curls so my hair looks nice? HELP!!!

The attached picture shows my hair as blown dry. It was white then (my natural color) but it's got a red base with blond streaks now. Texture is dry and nothing I use seems to give it any life at all. I live in north TX so humidity can be a problem.

Use balm to blow-dry

My hair is also naturally wavy. I use Redken 12 straightening balm to blow-dry my hair smooth. Use a nozzle on hair dryer and a large round brush. When finish then use flat iron at the end to to make the hair straighter for longer time and get rid of unwanted flicks.

You can use relaxers to re-texture the wave patterns

I can't see any problem in styling your hair. You have a beautiful short hair that suits your face with some distinct natural wave patterns that can be styled straight with blow-drying.

The secret (if you like to call it that!!) is to use a small amount of wax, warm it up in palm of your hand and rub it into your hair while is damp, then use a barreled brush and give it tension while blow-drying. It's as simple as that!!

However, if want your hair straight that lasts 3-6 months without the hassle of blow-drying, then you should book a time with a good stylist for a re-texturizing service and apply relaxer lotion. I recommend Caribbean Dream Hair Relaxer because it's designed for natural curly hair and it's very gentle and safe.

As for hair color, I think you should stay with your natural hair color. It suits you well!

Thanks --

Thanks to both of you so much for taking time to address my question. I went for a chemical straightener at my salon just a couple of weeks ago -- it was called Anti-curl. So far I'm happy with the results. My intent is to let it grow a bit then style in a wedge.
