Cowlick in the front. I want to scare it straight. How?

Ok, so I’ve been trying to straighten my hair which is a bit wavy/frizzy, very short fine hair. Most of my hair presents 0 problem since it’s only got a slight wave so a little product takes care of it but I have a cowlick on the front of my head that drives me nuts. No matter what I try I can’t seem to get it to go pin straight.

I’m a guy just trying to do a basic, clean swept side part….sorta like Justin Timberlake’s new hair but not nearly that done up. My hair is shorter as well, both in the front and on top.

I’ve been using a boar brush and a hair dryer and reading up on the proper way but my hair is too short to wrap around the brush and get any real tension to straighten it (it’s 1.5 inch in diameter). I picked up a extremely small 0.75 wide diameter brush that should do the trick to get tension to really straighten it.

I’m definitely doing something right since I have noticed it’s straighter but I’ve got OCD about it now and maybe getting the proper tension will do the trick?

I’m not doing anything else crazy with the hair and I have learned some techniques with blow drying that have helped. I’m using the Garnier Fructis straightening balm and that has helped to reduce the frizz. I also have Oribe Maximista although I feel like I have hair spray in my hair when I’m brushing it out.

Any other ideas that don’t involve putting mayo in my hair?
