Hi, my name is Amelia Smith, a professional stylist, and I'm here to show you how to straighten your short hair with a straightener. For this clip, you'll need your hair straightener, a thermal protectant and a styling comb. Always make sure that you use a thermal protectant. You're going to want to spray that lightly all over, and comb it through or finger it through to make sure that you really saturate most strands. But remember, if you're too heavy-handed, you can get it a little bit oily, so just don't be too heavy-handed. You're going to want to grab your section of hair, and with short hair it helps if you use your clips and kind of pull it out of the way, because that way you don't have as much hair all over; the long hair you can push out of the way and it will stay, short hair falls. So, you're going to want to grab your section, comb it through and always comb your hair prior to straightening. After you have straightened it, you always comb it again and that helps to set that shape. Drop your next section and begin again. Comb your hair out, run the straightener over it and then comb it. So, as you can see, we've straightened this whole section, and you just want to make sure that when you are using your flatiron, you don't want a large one. The smaller, the better on short hair, and they do come even smaller than this. This one is an inch and a half, and they do come even smaller, so the smaller, the better with short hair, otherwise you'll burn your scalp. So, that's how you straighten your hair, straighten your short hair.
