The summer is coming to an end, and the cool weather is starting to creep in. Most of us have been spending a lot more time indoors, but with that comes the need for styling our hair differently. Straightening your hair every day can be damaging and costly, so we’ve compiled some ways you can get a straight look without heat.
Basic straightening methods like flat-ironing, blow-drying, and curling can be damaging to your hair. But there are some other ways you can go about getting rid of frizz without using heat. Here are a few ideas:
- Braid your wet hair into four sections, then twist each section around the top of your head while it’s still damp. Secure with a bobby pin at the end and let it dry overnight. Remove pins for sleek waves that won’t come undone from static electricity or humidity when dehydrated hair.
- Use an old teddy bear as a makeshift diffuser on low heat by placing it over the nozzle of your blowdryer to gently use hands to direct airflow for soft hair.
- Put your hair up into a high ponytail or bun. Use bobby pins to secure it tightly and let it sit overnight. The following day unroll your curls like you would if they were wet from being washed, and voila – shiny, smooth locks.
- Use curl-defining cream before blow-drying your hair, then use rollers on top of the product while it’s still damp.
Straighten your hair without an iron
The number one question I get asked is how to straighten your hair without using an iron—the answer: a professional keratin treatment. Keratin treatments are super-effective and will leave your hair looking like you just got it done at the salon. Unfortunately, with so many people on the go these days, there’s no time for an hour-long blowout or appointment with a stylist. That’s why we offer in-home keratin treatments that come right to you.
The summer heat makes it hard to do anything, but when you have hair that needs a good curl or straightening, your time and patience are limited. Luckily there are plenty of ways to get a sleek look without using iron and, for example, braiding wet hair into cornrows. The best part about these techniques? They’re all quick and easy.
Natural hair straightening
Have you been thinking about going back to your natural hair straightening? I have, and it’s been a journey. It’s not easy to transition from relaxers or weaves, but it can be done with the right products and tools.
There are many reasons why people want to straighten their hair. Some do it because they like the way it looks, others do it to make themselves feel better, and some may even be pressured by society in general. But what if you were able to have a more natural look? What if you could embrace your curly or wavy locks without fear of being judged? You’ll learn about all the natural hair straightening methods out there so that you can find one that works best for you.
