Simply brush out your luscious locks with a comb or brush and get to straightening. With your favorite hot iron tool, begin going over small sections of hair. The larger the grouping the more times you will have to go over your hair. Always keep your hot tool moving when applied to your hair. Never hold it directly on your hair for longer than 3 seconds without moving it along your hair. You will risk burning your new wig.
