How to Get Smooth Hair


I got a comment on the weekend from one of my lovely readers asking about my hair and how it gets so smooth, so I thought I’d share a few pics and a video on how I do my hair as it doesn’t start out quite so nice!  Excuse the terrible bathroom lighting!


Wet hair – some air drying

So this is what it looks like after I’ve washed it – before I dry – my hair is kinky, not straight, not curly, and tends to go frizzy if I don’t dry it.

And here it is after I’ve blow dried it, then also run the straightening irons over it – you can see I still have a bit of frizz on the top.

And then I smooth some Moroccan oil (about 1/2 of a 1 cent piece, just a tiny dot does it)  over it to smooth down the frizz.

And here is a short video of my blow dry technique – called the head wrap technique that my hairdresser (Mick from Biba in Doncaster) taught me.

Now my hair is fairly fine, though as it’s greying it’s getting coarser.  Because it is fine and shorter, I have to wash and dry it every day as otherwise it looks limp and greasy the second day.


I'm not sure if it's for you but how would you feel if you learned all about the colours and styles of clothing that suit your individual personality, shape and style?

  • My hair went from stick straight and shiny to coarse and frizzy from covering my grays. I found two things this year that have made a huge difference. The first is Neutrogena Triple Moisture Silk Touch Leave-in Creme. It’s amazing how soft and smooth it makes my hair feel.

    The second thing I discovered was an (old to hair stylists but new to me) trick. When I have my monthly root touch-up my stylist also applies a clear gloss hair color product over the rest of my hair.

    These two products together almost make me feel like my hair, at least, is 20-something not 50-something.

  • Thanks for the tips. My hair is much longer than yours. I wear the bottom half in it’s natural wavy state. However the top part stays straight and the tip about the Moroccan oil will help with my frizz there.

  • Brilliant tip! For silky hair I apply henna on my hair after mixing 2 tablespoons of fenugreek powder in it. After the wash my hair gets super silky. Will surely use your tip!

  • Just be careful with the oil and the flattening iron. Too much (heated) oil may have a “deep-fryer-effect” on your hair and destroy it.

  • Nice guide, I have very shiny straight “stuck to my head” looking hair so natually want to take it the other way but never have time in the day, only on a night out!
