We’ve upgraded a lot in our lifestyles over the last couple of years. From wearing less makeup, to taking more time away from the laptop, to using less heat on our hair.
2020 was a whole two years ago. It brought the trend of using a bathrobe to create curls without heat into reality. It’s definitely one of our favorite things to have come out of lockdown. And how great is it that we’ve found another amazing use for our bathrobes? We get they’re the cure for literally anything, but we didn’t see this one coming!
Since seeing the models strut down the runway for Spring fashion week, it’s obvious that sleek and straight strands are in.
So, is there a way to achieve the look without heat?
We’re going to be honest, it’s not as easy and simple as heatless curls, and depending on your hair type, it might not be very realistic. But if you’re starting with naturally wavy, medium to fine hair then you’re in luck!
You can say goodbye to chemicals, hair dryers and flat irons that are all known for harming your hair, and say hello to N4s brilliant ways to straighten your hair without the damage.
Start With The Right Products
Shampoo and conditioner
Starting with the right shampoo and conditioner is key to achieving smooth results and straight strands. You’ll need to choose one that’s not going to strip your hair of its moisture, but not add tones of extra moisture in. We suggest N4s Clarifying Shampoo.
This hard-working formula will ensure your hair is thoroughly cleaned from bottom to top, and if you’re used to using a shampoo that’s packed full of moisture then you’ll be happy to know that this bad boy doesn’t sacrifice conditioning, and helps lock moisture in.
Prior to shampooing, an appropriate conditioner or mask will be very useful for achieving straight strands. N4s Reconstructing Hair Masque should be your go to, and it’ll be your secret weapon to having strengthened, smooth locks. Although it’s a deep treatment there’s no sitting around watching the clock! Distribute the product evenly and let it sit for 2-5 minutes before rinsing.
Lastly, we recommend N4s Smoothing Balm which is going to be your warrior for fighting frizz and unruly locks. It’s that extra essential step to take if your hair’s a little crazy, particularly after being washed.
As well as truly living up to its name, the Smoothing Balm allows your hair to be shaped however you wish! It’s like a Genie in a bottle and will make your straight hair wishes come true. You just need to distribute it evenly onto your hair, and blow dry, with the cool setting, to avoid using heat.
Keep Brushing Until Your Locks Are Dry
Using the correct products isn’t the only way to help you get straight strands. There’s definitely techniques you can use along the way.
Brushing your hair whilst it’s wet can help avoid curls and waves forming. Try N4s L’eau de Mare Brush. We don’t mean sit for hours combing while you air dry – we don’t want you with a sore arm! But using a cool setting on your hairdryer will minimize breakage and help speed up the drying process.
Although straight strands are in, curls will always be super cute! If you’re looking to try some more heatless hairstyles, try out these ones!
