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)
- DIY Spray Leave-In Conditioner
- DIY Mixed Sealing Oil
- Wide Tooth Comb
- DIY Whipped Butter (optional when I wear my hair out)
- Headband (optional when I wear my hair out)
- 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).
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?
