There is no point in denying how beautiful Girls' Generation's Taeyeon's hair is. Even though most K-pop idols often change their styles, this pop singer looks fantastic with super straight, shiny hair.
According to Korean stylists, naturally straight hair makes Taeyeon shine even more due to her fair skin and well-defined characteristics. And while she looks radiant with curly hair, we loved that Girls' Generation's Taeyeon will forever look outstanding with straight hair.
Here are five easy steps you can follow if you want to achieve super straight, shiny hair like your favorite K-pop idol Taeyeon.
1. Wash your hair.
The first step for achieving super straight, shiny hair is shampoo and conditioning. It's vital to wash and condition your hair with top-quality products. Try your best to use sulfate-free products as these chemicals can harm your hair and scalp.
Also, Korean hair stylists recommend not using hair products with alcohol as it can dry your hair. Always avoid products that can strip moisture from the strands, as this leads to lifeless hair.
An excellent option is NINE LESS Magic Nine Perlite Scalp Scrub Shampoo. This shampoo prevents dry scalp as it gently removes dead skin cells and other impurities. When the scalp is clean, your hair becomes healthy and radiant for a long time.
The NINE LESS Magic Nine Perlite Scalp Scrub Shampoo formula combines powerful and natural ingredients, including Centella Asiatica extract, skullcap, green tea, licorice root, and Perlite from the Mediterranean sea.
2. Rinse with cold water.
One of Taeyeon's well-keep secrets is to rinse the hair with cold water. Even though this can be challenging, especially in winter, it's the best way to protect the hair cuticle. When you rinse your hair with cold water, you're closing your hair cuticles, making your hair healthy. Besides, rinsing with cold water helps each strand to remain straight.
3. Choose the right brush.
If you want to achieve super straight, shiny hair, it's vital to use a top-quality bristle brush to detangle your wet hair. Having the right hairbrush is a must for distributing the sebum from the scalp to the ends of the hair. Detangling your hair with the right brush is key for stopping frizz.
Taeyeon recommends drying the hair with a highly absorbent towel before detangling. Very carefully, remove excess moisture with a towel to prevent hair damage. Then brush your hair carefully with a wide-tooth comb. Don't use round brushes because they're specifically created to curl the hair, especially at the ends.
4. Apply a hair treatment.
Most K-pop idols, including Taeyeon, always use a hair treatment to restore and protect their hair.
Apply a hair treatment on the palm of your hands and distribute it evenly on the hair. Avoid applying the product to the scalp, as this can make your hair look dirty and greasy.
We love NINE LESS Magic Nine Fill Up Silk Hair Treatment as it's formulated to strengthen, nourish, and smooth your hair. This hair treatment is fantastic for sealing your hair cuticle to stop frizz. Pump once or three times, apply thoroughly on dry towel hair, leave it in, and then use a hairdryer.
If you have very dry hair or want extra care, we recommend using NINE LESS Daily Intense Nourishing Hair Essence, which is specifically formulated to improve the health of your hair. This serum works by closing the hair fibres, preventing hair breakage.
You can apply NINE LESS Daily Intense Nourishing Hair Essence every day to stop hair loss and protect against heat damage.
5. Dry your hair.
One of the best techniques to get super straight, shiny hair like Girls' Generation's Taeyeon is to dry your hair immediately.
Start by dividing your hair into sections. Blow-dry each part starting on the root. Carefully pull the hair with the brush. Korean hair stylists recommend setting your hairdryer at medium temperature to prevent heat damage.
When your hair is dry, use a straight iron and carefully smooth each strand. It's best to straighten small strands and make sure to start approximately two centimeters from the roots.
Taeyeon finishes her hair care by applying a mask such as SHISEIDO Tsubaki Premium Repair Hair Mask once a week.
The SHISEIDO Tsubaki Premium Repair Hair Mask restores the hair, allowing each strand to absorb better cosmetic ingredients. This hair mask is a unique J-beauty formula formulated with natural ingredients such as Camellia Oil, Royal Jelly, and Pearl Protein. It's easy to use with a rinse-off design.
