You know that saying, "the grass is always greener on the side," that people use all the time? Well, no matter how many times I hear how I should appreciate what I have, I'm still deep in the throes of a love-hate relationship with my stick straight hair. You may be happier with the straight strands you were born with than I am, but there are some universal truths about having non-curly strands. In fact, there are some basic hacks everyone with straight hair should know. Because regardless of how you feel about your linear locks, you've still got to take care of them, right?
An analogy I always use with friends who straight up (no pun intended) loathe their flat strands is this: straight hair is like a block of tofu. Unless you know the proper tools, tricks, and methods for it, you'll be unhappy with your flavorless situation. Sometimes all it takes to get you out of a frumpy slump is to take a creative approach to your coif.
Thankfully beauty experts, stylists, and hair care aficionados from around the world wide web have curated some of the best hacks for people with straight hair. Check them out.
