5 Ways To Straighten Curly Hair (Natural and No Heat Too)

Posted on Jul 28,2018 in Grooming

Curly hair is in right now, but the reality is straight hair is easier to manage and more convenient. I’m not saying there is anything wrong with curly hair but there are some times where I wish I had dead straight hair so I wouldn’t have to deal with all the products and the process I go through every morning. So today, I’m going to be showing you how to straighten your hair naturally!

1.Hat Method

This is a free, zero-effort method that will cause no damage. The way you go about this is as soon as you get out of the shower, dry it as much as you can with a towel. Next, apply some leave-in conditioner or some sort of pre-styler and slick your hair back. Throw on a hat and do everything you need to do (make your bed, eat breakfast, brush your teeth, etc.) Once you’ve done everything, take your hat off and it’ll be dry and straight. Easy as that!

2.Blow-Dryer

This is the next best option, especially if you’re looking for volume. Blow-drying your hair and not air-drying it will give you the most volume out of all the 5 methods I’m showing you today. As before, use your pre-styler and blow-dry it in different directions to style it into place.

3.Flat-Iron

This is probably the best method of all if you want that pin-straight hair. However, this is also the most harmful to your hair. Although you might not see it in but in the future you will. Which is why I always recommend the alternative from our friends at Flow.

It’s a hair straightening brush that’s super easy to manage. The best part is, it’s very simple to use because it’s shaped like a brush. You use it as if you were just brushing through your hair. The way it works is pretty straight-forward. The bristles on the brush heat up and evenly straighten your hair instead of compressing them. Even better, it has a built in LCD screen so you can manage how hot you want it to be. A rule of thumb would be medium heat and then work your way up if you notice that it’s not working.

If you weren’t reading this article right now, you’d be paying $80 for this. But since, you’re apart of the TMF fam, if you use code “tmfflow” you get this brush for 50% off! So if straight hair is a look you want, then this is the tool you need.

4. Brazilian Blow-Out

If you’re going to do any type of treatments, I would say that Brazilian Blow-Outs are the safest method or should I say the least damaging one. It’s the most natural one when it comes to straightening you hair. The only downside is that it’s expensive and it HAS to be done by a professional. On the other hand, you can choose to do a home treatment however they are very damaging to your hair, and if you care about your hair like I do, I’d spend the extra money and get it done by an professional.

5. Natural Hair Mask

This is the longest method and you have to apply it twice a week, it takes a lot of work but it has not harmful chemicals. The only bonus from this is that it has no harmful chemicals and if it works, it’s probably the safest way to go. ¬†All you have to do is mix:

-1 Cup of Coconut Milk

– 5 Tbsp of Lemon Juice

-2 Tbsp of Olive Oil

-3 Tbsp of Corn Starch

Mix all of that and apply it to your hair. Wait an hour and hop into the shower and that’s it!
