Best Answer

Apparently ions help the hair dry faster with less heat, which can damage hair. I'm not sure there's a lot of evidence to support it, though.

How can you make your hair straight and keep it that way throughout the day when you have very curly hair?

Well first, you should get shower and blow dry it. Getting a blow dryer that has ion makes the hair less frizzy. After that, you could straighten it if it isn't as straight as you want it to be. When your done styling, you should add a product for added frizz control. A great one I use is the Garnier Fructis Sleek and Shine Styling Creme. Just add a dime size amount and it will help. (:
