How to Straighten Hair Without Heat?

To straighten your hair without heat, begin by first washing it. While it’s damp, apply products that are designed to smoothen out your hair and prevent flyaways. Proceed to blow-dry the hair with the cold air option. If your hair dryer doesn’t have such a function, you can try the following method instead. I personally tie my wet hair with an elastic, and untie it and brush it when I see that curls have started to form. Then a tie it again and repeat this process until the hair is completely dried. But be informed that this does take a lot of time, so schedule it for a weekend night in.

If you’ve looked for not heat straight hair methods by now, you’ve likely heard of the wrap one. That’s what we will be doing today! For me, it worked, and I have quite the thick curly mane, so I hope it works out for you as well!

What will you need? Arm yourself with a lot of big bobby pins, a fine-tooth comb, and a satin scarf.

Begin by separating your tresses into two sections, clearing your hair parting. Take a section of your hair starting from the neck, brush it until smooth to straighten it and wrap it around your head as a headband, smoothening the strand and securing it with the bobby pins. Now proceed in the same manner until you’ve wrapped all your hair smoothly. Secure the hair with the satin scarf, tying it at the end or using more bobby pins to keep it in place. Sleep on it and unveil the results in the morning! Be sure to brush your hair after for the best look.
