How To Straighten Your Hair Without Causing Any Damage


Do you have thick curly hair?

You do love them.( Right?)

But sometimes…

Do they make you go insane because they refuse to behave?

Do you want to forgo those curls and know how to straighten your hair?

Well, I’ve also gone through all this.

I used to straighten my thick ringlets with a flat iron every single day. (Blunder!!)

So, I was carrying on this process of damaging the cuticle of my hair and was on my way to turn my natural hair into ‘plastic hair’.(Yes, you heard it right!)

And then,

My cousin came to my rescue.

She told me to try heatless hair straightening.

I really wanted to believe her because she was the one who had helped me to get rid of lice when I was in school.
(I would have never told this. But then, she deserves some appreciation.)

You must be wondering – Is it possible to straighten your hair without heat?

The answer is yes, a BIG YES !!!

The end results won’t be sleek straight, but they’re a much healthier alternative.

The reason is that the heat or chemical straighteners damage your hair over time and leave it with dead and split ends.
