Step 1. Prep
Spray Frizz-Ease 3-Day Straight Semi-Permanent Styling Spray throughout wet hair and comb through to distribute the product evenly.

Step 2. Style
Blowdry hair straight. Take a flat iron and straighten hair section by section–the heat of flat iron will activate 3-Day Straight, to ensure sleek style that lasts all night long.

Step 3. Perfect
Smooth Frizz-Ease Secret Weapon Flawless Finishing Crème throughout hair to give a smooth, shiny finish.
