It is true that flat irons are very popular and, yes, very helpful in getting rid of frizzes from your hair.

As a result, it causes damages to the result. Therefore, we came up with some tricks that can help to straighten those frizzes. Since these tricks are not related to flat irons, they will work perfectly for people who have straight or wavy hair.

Curly hair people will also be able to reduce frizzes. Still, kinky or extremely curly hair people will not be able to straighten their frizzes 100%.  Let’s take a look at how.

After washing your hair, let it air dry completely. However, keep brushing it at regular intervals.

Haul out and hold each segment of hair for a couple of moments to urge it to rectify.

You can likewise do this by a fan, which is quicker. However, it requires steady brushing.

2. Wrap Wet Hair Tightly

Hair wrapping is a more prominent approach to getting your frizzes straight without utilizing any flat iron.

While there are various techniques for hair types and lengths, the basics are quite the same.

You will require bobby pins that are three inches long and a silk hair wrapping turban or scarf.

To wrap hair, separate the top section of your hair and utilize a fine-toothed brush to brush it out. Holding your hair rigid, bring the hair around to the contrary side of your head from where it normally falls and stick it firmly to the side of your head.

You’ll have to rehash this technique for each segment of your hair and secure it with a hair turban before you go to bed.

3. Sleep With Your Hair wet

If it is hard to envision laying down with a hair wrap or huge rollers on your head, begin with something basic: Try lying down with your hair wet.

Use a hairband to tie a free braid at the highest point of your head; at that point, make a bun shape by folding your hair over that ponytail and protecting it with another barrette.

In case you are sleeping with wet hair, you might need to consider getting a silk pillowcase.

This will reduce the grinding against your hair that can occur while you sleep and give your hair a frizz-free straighter appearance once you let it free after a few hours.

4. Jumbo Rollers Without Heat Are Excellent

The use of large size (the size of a soda can) rollers known as jumbo rollers (recommended diameter is 1 ¾ inch or above) is very much effective to straighten frizzes from hair, and yes, no heat required.

Basically, part your wet hair into medium segments and fold the rollers into your hair before you go to sleep, or around four to five hours before you plan to take them out.

The main point is to let them dry completely. Otherwise, a small amount of moisture can bring back those frizzes.

5. Use Low Heat Setting in Hair Dryer With Perfect Material

Although it generally feels like heated tools can straighten frizz once the hair is styled, the inverse really occurs if you’re utilizing your heated device on a very high setting.

Anything over 365 degrees can swell the cuticle of your hair, which will really wind up, causing more problems than anything.

Since we are talking about straightening frizzes without a flat iron in this article, what we mean here with heated tools are blow dryers.

Blow dryers are amazing to fight against frizzes. Dryers that have ionic technology, ceramic coated material are perfect for fixing frizzes.

In this case, use the lowest heat setting of your dryer, which will ultimately give you a frizz-free look without harming the health of your hair.

6. Concentrators With Blow Dryers Are Advantageous

Knowing how to blow dry your hair without creating frizzes appropriately is an artistic expression.

When you know how to do it properly, the outcomes are constantly beneficial. One of the pro tips when blow-drying, particularly for wavy or wavy hair, is to utilize a concentrator.

Including a hair concentrator onto your blow dryer will restrict the measure of direct heat and compelling air hitting your hair, which does incredible things to keep the hair smooth.

Additionally, try to keep your hair from moving around when you dry, causing less rubbing and straightening frizzes.

7. Use Hair Care Product to Straighten Frizzes

There are shampoos, conditioners, and other products like hairsprays available in every beauty shop to make your hair smooth and, most importantly, free of frizzes.

Sprays and conditioners with keratin in them and other smoothing serums can straighten all the frizzes of your hair.

8. Using A Combination of Mascara Wand and Hair Spray

If you face frizzes in small regions of your hair, we recommend using a mascara wand with hair spray.

This enables you to focus on certain little, rowdy territories of the hair that should be straightened out rapidly.

This method is well-cherished by numerous big names and beauticians and has been a beneficial strategy when in a hurry.

If you are going for this method, you should be aware of using hair sprays free of alcohol since these sprays can swell the hair’s cuticle and make the hair more frizzy later on.

9. Use A Hair Mask 2-3 Times a Week

These oils are perfect for the hydration of hair, and they can straighten an outstanding amount of frizzes.

Depending on how much your hair is frizz-prone, you may use this kind of mask 2-3 times a week for better results.

  2. Hi,

    Amazingly written article; the more I say about your writings, the less it would seem.

    Ok praises aside, can you please clarify something? From here and there, I have heard that keratin shampoos are working well to reduce frizz. How true is it? I am going to buy one but I am not sure whether it would help or not.

    Thanks in advance!

    • Dear Katrina,

      At first, we want to thank you for your encouraging words. We really appreciated this.

      Secondly, keratin protein is extremely helpful in reducing frizz. So if you are planning to use a keratin shampoo, then go for it girl.

      Hope this would help.

  3. Hi,

    I just wonder how you guys write anything that comes in your mind without checking the facts. It’s common knowledge the brushing wet hair causes severe hair fall and yet you suggested doing so.

    I used to like your blogs a lot. But I am very disappointed.

    • Dear Daniel,

      Thank you very much for sharing your concerns and disappointment with us.

      Well, we didn’t recommend brushing your dripping wet hair. While you are drying your tresses, they eventually become damp and brushing damp hair won’t cause hair fall.

      Nevertheless, we appreciate that you pointed out an important aspect.

  5. Hi, I would like to know if a non-ionic hairdryer will work the same as an ionic one to reduce frizz. I have a non-ionic hairdryer and I am worried.

    Please respond.

    • Dear Portia,

      Thank you for your question.

      No, a non-ionic hairdryer will work the same as an ionic one. The negative ions released from the dyer helps in reduce frizz quickly but when there are no ions, the dryer will not be as effective in fighting frizz.
