There are countless methods for no-heat curling what about straightening? Curly hair ladies are blessed with beautiful locks but sometimes having manageable, sleek and straight hair is desirable. Relaxer and flat iron are commonly used for this purpose.
Relaxer is a chemical process that softens the hair shaft and loosen the curl shape. The hair is generally shinier after using relaxer but it doesn't mean your hair is healthier. Your hair is actually more prone to breakage because of the chemical that weakens the hair.
Flat iron or straightener is a heat-styling process that instantly straighten the hair. It's a similar method as ironing your clothes to de-wrinkle the garment. You can actually fry your hair if you constantly glide the iron through your hair.
Of the two method, relaxer lasts longer and perhaps more damaging. This brings me back to the main topic: Is there a way to straighten hair without using chemical and heat?
There is! You need some time and effort for this bobby pin method but it's the best option to straightening hair without damaging it. Refer to AlexandrasGirlyTalk's video for instruction.
