Shower. Dry hair. Straighten hair. Repeat.
College has made me realize how much heat I apply to my hair on a regular basis, and how damaging it actually is. We blow dry our hair when we get out of the shower, we straighten our hair for class (if we’re feeling adventurous), and we curl our hair for a night out Uptown. I have stick-straight, super thin hair, so I’m always trying to mix it up and add some volume with curls or waves. Unfortunately, the extreme heat from curling and flat irons is making my thin hair even thinner.
If you’re like me, you apply to heat to your hair way more than you should. But, good news – Pinterest is stocked with heatless hair looks to give us a break from the damaging effects of heat hair tools.
I have actually tried the method below before. You look ridiculous while doing it, but it works extremely well. While your hair is damp, place a thin headband around your forehead and twist small sections around the headband. Leave your hair this way while it dries.Once it’s dry, you will have waves that look just like you used a curling iron. They also hold much better than waves from a curling iron.
