How to Style Hair Without Heat: 5 Easy Tips
We’ve all been told at some point or another that we should limit the amount of heat that we apply to our hair. Heat thins hair, causes frizz and overtime results in premature hair fall. Problem is: heat is hard to quit when it makes things so much easier. But easier is not always the right choice for our hair. Here are a couple ways we can style hair without causing heat damage:
1. Squeeze dry your hair, don’t rub it.Most people step out from the shower, grab the towel and immediately begin rubbing their hair. Here’s our first tip: don’t! When you rub your hair, you create frizz, add static and damage your hair. Instead, use a towel to gently squeeze the water from your hair. This will keep your hair cuticles smooth. It may take more time, but your hair will thank you.
2. Brush with a boar bristle brush.Boar hair is very similar to human hair. This makes it perfect for brushing, because it carries the sebum oil from your scalp and evenly distributes it throughout the rest of your hair. By using a boar bristle brush, not only will you reduce oil buildup at the base of your scalp, but the rest of your hair will become more conditioned. You’ll be enjoying reduced frizz and an added soft, healthy shine. It will also add volume to your hair, giving you a blow-dried look without the heat.
