It may not be the summertime yet, but this heat is the worst! If you are down South, the weather is already hitting 90 degrees! What’s a natural girl to do? Straightening is probably not the best answer. It’s hard to keep your hair straight in the heat and humidity anyway.

Sometimes in the warmer months, we feel like we need more heat to keep our hair straighter longer. Bad move! If you have to have a stretched style, ditch the 450 degree ceramic iron and check out some different techniques:

    Ladies get yourselves some curl formers. The curls are much looser than with roller sets and gives you a blowout kind of look. You can wear the curls from the curl formers for a day or two and then use that stretched hair for a dry twist/braid out. I say look up Naptural85 on youtube since she does tons of styles after stretching with curl formers.

      curl formers don’t require any heat at all like roller sets and take much less time to dry than bantu knots.**

      I agree I use curlformers all the time (im relaxed now). When I was natural you couldnt keep me away from curlformers.

  • I’m texlaxed so now I can stretch my hair and keep it that way with out heat. Another good one (my hair is too short still) is to bun it damp or wet until it dries.
