Routine # 1

Shampooing Hair

Good hair health always requires a regular wash. But not with the traditional ways. Check your existing shampoo and conditioner whether it has a moisturizing formula in it or not. If not, then you need to change those and buy shampoo and conditioner which are meant to straighten hair. Smoothing serum and keratin packed on the shampoo and conditioners weighs the strands down relax the curls (if you have any) and can help your hair become straight.

Routine # 2

If you are used to blowing dry hair with a hairdryer that uses heat to dry out hair pretty fast, then you need to stop that this time and dry your hair with cold air instead. It is true that drying your hair naturally is very time consuming but if you divide your hair into some small sections and set “cool” setting on your blow dryer, your hair gets less damaged. This method will not take longer time as well as do less hair to your hair.

However, you should apply straightening serum such as Bumble and Bumble Straight Blow Dry or Matrix Total Results Defrizzing Leave-In Spray to tame fly-away strands while blow drying. Using cool air method is proven to cause less harm than traditional blow dryer that uses heat.

Routine # 3

Brushing Wet Hair

Just after having a shower, brush your wet hair immediately if you want to avoid blow dryer. After towel drying your hair, brush until it dries out completely. Brush your wet hair helps to separate the strands and remove moisture. It also gives your hair strength and prevents from not being curled easily. However, remember to use an argan or coconut oil while brushing wet hairs.

Routine # 4

Another popular way to have your hair straighten without using heat is “hair wrapping”. You can find many hair wrapping tutorials on YouTube for almost all hair types. There are different methods for different hair lengths and textures, however, the basics are almost the same. For this method, you will need some long bobby pins and a microfiber towel such as Zwipes 735 Microfiber Towel or Danielle Creations coconut-infused hair turban to avoid heat and dry out your hair naturally.

Wrapping the hair is not hard. First, separate the top sections and use a comb to comb it out flat. Then bring your hair around the opposite of our head and pin tightly with the bobby pins. Repeat this method for each hair sections you have made and then wrap your head fully with a towel or a turban before going to bed at night. But before wrapping, gently move the towel all over your hair. Let the towel engross the moisture in your hair. It will prevent frizz and damages.

A Note: Microfiber towels are very good at absorbing moisture and designed to prevent frizz.

So, after maintaining the routines, you also need to follow some basic methods to keep your hair straight for a longer time. Here are some methods and ways we have got from the experts and our research.

We all know that, heat is not good for any type of hair. It can damage the hair more than you are thinking it can do. Heat makes hair dry and unmanageable. But there are always other healthier ways. Let’s see below to learn the ways.

Using Hairbands


Hairbands can be used to straight hair. Wet your hair by spraying water into them or you can do it after your shower. Now at the base of your hair make two low sized ponytails. Then take another hairband and tie it below two inches from the first one. Continue this process until the end of your hair. Tie the hairbands loose because tight tying will make a mark on the strands. By this process, your curls will loosen up in the morning.

Using Large Rollers

Damp your hair with water. Make five or six sections of your hair and roll it around the rollers. Start rolling from the end and roll it until it comes to the roots. Secure the roller with large pins. In the morning you will get straighter hair than your normal hair texture. You can use Evolve EV Satin Covered Rollers or BaBylissPRO Nano Titanium Professional Jumbo Roller Hairsetter.

Twist Hair Bun

Twist Hair Bun

If you have slightly straight and lighter texture hair you can try this method. Damp your hair first then make a ponytail. Twist it from the base till the ends. Then wrap around the base of the ponytail like a bun. Secure it with pins and let it dry.

Warping the Hair

Damp your hair with water and make two sections. Take left section of the hair and wrap it from the right to top of your head. Wind it until it comes to the ends and secures it with pins. Do the same with another section. Let it dry.
