Jennifer Garner doesn’t normally partake in the latest trends, but that wasn’t the case recently when she exited a New York City hotel with sleek, smooth strands that were so shiny, she might’ve been able to see her reflection in them (okay, maybe not THAT shiny). Super-straight, ultra-glossy hair is totally trendy this fall, and even girls with curls can get the look.
Start out in the shower with a glossing shampoo that smoothes your hair’s cuticles and follow up with a similar sleek-ifying conditioner. When you’re rinsing it out, turn the water temperature down so it’s cold. This helps seal the hair’s cuticles, trapping in moisture.
Now blowdry your hair as usual, taking special care to aim the nozzle down your hair toward the ends. If you go in any other direction, it could rough up your strands and create frizz.
When your hair’s totally dry, part your locks wherever you’d like (Jennifer did hers down the center), and heat up your flat iron. Carefully smooth the iron over small sections of your hair, making sure that you don’t stay in one spot for too long.
Finish up by spreading a pea-sized amount of glossing cream throughout your hair, staying away from the roots. Comb through and you’re done!
