Styling hair without using heat can be tricky. Hot tools come in handy when you wake up with a bad hair day, but like we all already know they are damaging to hair. Today we have a few tricks that you should try out that will help you when you want the look of straight hair but don't feel like using your straightener. If you are someone who uses hot tools on a regular basis you may find it hard to stop but since it is summer it's the perfect time to try! Since it is a lot warmer out you probably don't want to wear your hair down anyways so try out some of these tricks and put your hot tools away for this season!


  • Comb your hair instead of using a blow dryer. The heat from a blow dryer can eventually make your hair brittle and dry if you are constantly using it. Instead of spending an hour blowing out your hair try just using a comb! When you get out of the shower pat your hair dry with a towel and then comb out any tangles. Keep combing periodically until your hair is fully dry. If you are consistently combing it will help to straighten your hair and reduce the amount of wave.
  • Rinse your hair with cold water. Since it is getting really hot out this trick shouldn't be too hard! After washing your hair with your favorite shampoo and conditioner rinse your hair with cold water. The colder the water the shinier your hair will be! By doing this you will also notice less frizz in your hair, overall making your hair appear a lot straighter.
  • Apply a milk and honey hair mask. Different hair masks can help with different problems your hair might be having. This particular hair mask will help straighten your hair and tame any curls you may have! Start by mixing 1 cup of thick milk with 1 tablespoon of honey. Apply the mask throughout your hair and leave it in for an hour. After just wash your hair like you normally would, we also suggest using a straightening shampoo and conditioner this will also help!
  • Section your hair off with soft hair bands before going to sleep. Before going to bed take some time to put your hair into two low pig tails. We suggest using creaseless hair bands or softer hair bands, this will ensure that you don't wake up with any awkward creases in your hair. This will tame your hair while you sleep, so if you're a rough sleeper and tend to wake up with crazy hair this trick will prevent any frizz!


These tricks won't give you naturally straight hair but they will help in controlling messy or frizzy hair overall making your hair a lot smoother!
