If you want a sleek hairstyle without the damage heat can cause, here are the expert tips that will get you the straight locks your looking for. However, you should note that the effect of straightening without heat would greatly depend on the type of hair and texture.
Start with the right shampoo and conditioner – You should use a shampoo and conditioner made for straight hair. You should also leave in your conditioner for as long as possible (at least 10 minutes) before washing it off in the shower.
Use an ultra-absorbent towel – Use a dry absorbent towel to towel dry your hair. Although towel drying and then air-drying your hair take a bit longer, your hair will definitely hold much more moisture.
Keep brushing your hair until it’s dry – Use a large tooth comb to comb through your hair once you have towel dried it. Once it is relatively dry, use a brush to brush out your hair.
Use jumbo rollers – To achieve a smoother effect, put plastic rollers in semi dried hair, by wrapping your hair flat against the roller.
Use the right products – Reduce frizz and smooth out hair by applying a gel serum to your tips.
Use the cold air setting on your hair dryer – Finish off your hair, by blow-drying on a cold air setting with no product. Use a brush and your fingers to straighten and style.
