The Heatless “Blowout” – Faux Blowout

Hey Maicurlies,

So as the title indicates I stretched my hair out using my heatless “Blowout” method. With this I really really get my hair stretched – it of course is not as stretched as it could be if I were to use a blow dryer but for a heatless method I love it.

Now before I start explaining, I want to point out…stress…that I work with dry hair to do this and I am UBER CAREFUL while manipulating dry hair. Manipulating dry hair can lead to damage if you are not careful, gentle and patient so I can not say it enough, I am SUPER CAREFUL with this otherwise breakage ends up being the result.

I have a video up of my method on my Channel which you can see below.

Products/Tools Used (click on the products listed for my recipes)

Prepping Tools

  • Hair bubbles
  • Hair Clips

I usually always start off with hair that has been stretched in some form just because it makes it easier to then completely comb out my curls. I am starting off with day 4 hair (a twist-out I only used my Leave-in no styling product when I set the twists).

                                                                                                  Day 4 Twist-out

Process

Prep Hair – Split hair, lightly mist leave-in conditioner & seal with Oil.

 Finger Detangle – I very carefully finger detangle

Comb – I comb out the curls really carefully and slowly

Option 1: From here I will apply my styling product to twist, braid, Bantu Knot etc my hair  or

Option 2: Otherwise I will wear my hair out with option two:

I would love to hear what your method is. Do you use heat? How? If not what do you do? 

Thanks
