How to get Emily Ratajkowski's straight hair in winter? 5 mistakes to avoid for sleek and luscious hair this winter

Unlike is believed, straight hair is not always easy to handle, especially if their roots are fat. Emily Ratajkowski is the clear example of how straight hair can be a simple component of the look but high impact. The model and author of the book "My Body" told Coveteur to love volumizing shampoo and to apply a modeling cream for drying, with minimum effort and maximum result. But sometimes straight hair can be difficult to manage: the effect of having "little hair", due to the slender structure of the barrel, which, combined with a smooth effect "spaghetto", often results in a look that does not represent out the beauty of the hair. In addition, adverse climatic conditions such as humidity, cold, wind, fog in winter make them dull in any coloration, while sun and salt in summer, but also bad drying, can make them frizzy and undefined. How can you show off, then, a smooth and perfect hair but not "flat" like Ratajkowski? It is preferable to choose first a medium cut and quite irregular, to lighten the hair creating a slight movement and a bit of volume. Then there are the mistakes to avoid.

Using conditioner

With this type of hair it is necessary to avoid conditioners, especially shampoo and conditioner in the same bottle, because they could weigh them down as too nutritious. Better to opt for a light moisturizing spray to be applied at the end of washing before drying the hair.

 

Do not dabbing wet hair

Tamponare very well the hair is another important step to not get the effect spaghetti! Remove excess water with a turban or microfibre towel, without rubbing too much; wet hair, in fact, are particularly fragile and sensitive. Then comb carefully and apply a chemoprotective serum on the lengths.

Using the wrong drying method

It is very important to dry the hair upside down, adjusting the hair dryer to the maximum heat, and keeping the air jet vertically: so you can begin to work them well, with your hands, starting from the neck. When they are almost dry, with a broad-toothed comb, divide your hair into four parts: one in the center, two at the sides, one at the back. Grip a round brush with thick bristles, insert the appropriate nozzle to the hairdryer and lower the heat. Work each strand with patience, rolling it on the brush and loosening it slowly, so as not to ruffle the hair.

 

Never changing the line of your hair 

It doesn’t matter if the line of your hair is central or lateral: by helping you with the tip of a comb turn it into a slightly zigzag. In this way your hair will appear immediately more consistent! However, if you want to opt for a more immediate but equally effective solution, it will be enough to change its position. If you have it on the left, move it to the right, if you have it in the middle, make it lateral, and so on.

Forgetting dry shampoo

In addition to being an excellent solution to postpone the washing of hair by a day, it is also an excellent product for styling. Dry shampoo, in fact, creates a patina around the hair and, consequently, makes it optically thicker.
