There are certain ways you can try to get straight hair without frying or burning it. However, keep in mind that most of these tips will work best on persons with finer hair that has a bit of a wave. It will be more difficult to obtain the look of straight hair with various hair textures without risking your hair’s health. However, if you’re ready to accept hair with a slight curl or a little bounce, you might have more options. Consider incorporating some of the suggestions below into your own straight-hair solution. Continue to experiment with different combinations of the tricks we’ve listed until you find a look you like.
Blow-Dry With Cold Air
If you’ve already mastered straight and sleek hair with the classic “blowout,” you might want to experiment with cool air blasts instead. After allowing your hair to air-dry about three-quarters of the way, divide it into sections as usual. Use the “cool” setting on your blow-dryer, making sure it moves continuously from root to tip. While drying your hair, keep the blow-dryer about six inches away from it.
Wrap Your Hair
Hair wrapping is one of the more popular methods for getting straight hair without using heat, but not everyone knows how to do it properly. Fortunately, there are a plethora of hair wrapping tutorials on YouTube for almost every hair type.
While there are different methods for different hair textures and lengths, the fundamentals are fairly consistent. You’ll need three-inch-long bobby pins, also known as roller pins, as well as a satin “hair wrapping” scarf or turban.
To wrap hair, separate the top section where you part your hair and comb it out flat with a fine-toothed comb. Holding your hair taut, wrap it around the opposite side of your head from where it naturally falls, and pin it tightly to the side of your head. You’ll need to repeat this process for each section of your hair, and then secure it with a hair turban before going to bed.
Roll With Plastic Rollers
If you buy “jumbo” (1 3/4 diameter or larger) plastic rollers, you can achieve slightly wavy hair with tons of volume and a glossy finish without using heat. Simply divide your damp hair into medium sections and roll the products through your hair before going to bed, or about four hours before you intend to remove them. These rollers may take some getting used to, but some people with medium-to-longer hair swear by them. Some YouTube tutorials can assist you in grasping the concept.
Use Products Meant To Straighten Hair
There are shampoos, conditioners, leave-in conditioners, hairsprays, and pretty much anything else you can think of that are designed to calm and relax your hair. Experimenting with products designed for straight hair or to make styling your hair easier could be a good place to start.
Sleep With Your Hair Wet
If you find it difficult to sleep with a hair wrap or large rollers on your head, start small and simple: Sleep with your hair wet. Tie a loose ponytail at the top of your head with a hairband, then create a bun shape by wrapping your hair around that ponytail and securing it with another hair tie.
If you sleep with wet hair, you should consider investing in a satin pillowcase. This will reduce friction against your hair while you sleep, giving your hair a straighter appearance when you let it down in the morning.
Try A Hair Mask
To give your hair a shinier and straighter appearance, deep-condition it with a DIY hair mask. Hair masks designed to restore protein to the hair may make curly hair appear more relaxed. For deep conditioning, use a hair mask containing raw egg, manuka honey, or avocado. Warm coconut oil or almond oil can also be used as hot-oil treatments to infuse and strengthen curly hair.
Apply Essential Oils
Some essential oils, according to anecdotal evidence, make the hair appear tamer. Some essential oils penetrate your hair more easily than chemical products. Coconut oil, argan oil, almond oil, and macadamia oil are all capable of penetrating your hair follicles and sealing and repairing the cells within.
After styling your hair with rollers, wrapping, a cold blow-dry, or another technique, apply your essential oil of choice. Warming the oil by rubbing it between your palms may help you spread it evenly through your hair. Concentrate on the ends of your hair and use no more than a dime-sized amount. This not only adds a sweet scent and a beautiful shine to your hair, but it also slightly weighs it down, allowing it to hold its style.
