SMOOTH HAIR TIP #2: FORGO KNOTS AND TANGLES
Knots and tangles are a no-go if you want smooth strands. To avoid them, add a hair detangler to your daily regimen.

Use it post-shower or before styling dry strands to smooth any bumps from your mane.
SMOOTH HAIR TIP #3: USE A HAIR SMOOTHING TREATMENT
The right hair treatments can help smooth your strands, too! Consider adding the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Smooth Intense Frizz Taming Serum into your daily regimen. This leave-in smoothing hair smoothing treatment and hair protectant instantly polishes your hair’s surface and creates an invisible humidity barrier to help block out frizz and lock in sleek shine.

SMOOTH HAIR TIP #4: TURN UP THE HEAT
When it comes to achieving smooth hair, it may be time to turn to your hot tools. More specifically, your flat iron! This will help smooth and straighten your strands, getting rid of any frizz or flyaways. But before you reach for your flat iron, spritz on the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray.

If you don’t play your cards right, that newfound smoothness can be a thing of the past before you know it. If you’re staying inside all day, you might be safe, but the weather can really do a number on smooth hair. So, be sure you seal in your smooth strands with a hairspray fit to fight off the elements.
