How to Straighten Hair Overnight, Naturally, Without Heat





Introduction: How to Straighten Hair Overnight, Naturally, Without Heat

I have really curly hair and I don't want to ruin it by always using an iron. I found a way to straighten it naturally and love the effect my hair gets. It didn't give it the perfectly straight hair that an iron gives but it tamed my hair and made it pretty. It probably gives people with wavy or straight hair a straighter and smoother look. Plus, it makes my hair so much softer! The first picture is my normally curly hair when it was wet, and the second is my straighter hair the next morning :)

Step 1: Prepare Your Hair

Your hair should be very wet; it's best to do it right after showering. Make a part on top then divide it on bottom and put a pony or something to keep one part separate.

Step 2: Brush and Pin

Take a section of the part that you left loose and brush it straight against your head. Put in bobby pins every so often. Bring that strand of hair around your head, making sure to keep on brushing it before pinning it.

Step 3: Continue

Continue with the rest of your hair, putting the strands around your head and on top of each other. If your hair starts drying in middle, make it wet again, otherwise it won't work. It's ok if some pieces of hair are not perfectly straight.

Step 4: Get Some Beauty Sleep

Leave in the bobby pins until the morning, and when you wake up enjoy your straighter, softer hair:)

This is really not good for your health. By doing this you could get a head cold which leads to headaches and lightness on feet.It could also lead to pneumonia .. so don't try it!!

This did not work what-so-ever for me. I woke up to my hair being still wet and super wavy. I have naturally very thick hair and I didn't put in the hair bands to tight... in fact, I didn't even loop them. Is there any thing i can do different? I hate straightening my hair every other day. ( Please do not tell me that it is bad for my hair because I know. That is why I am trying to find a different way) Thanks.

Through iron to straighten hair is a very common and interesting way. My wife using it many time at home, when she was not interested to go saloon for hair straighten hair. Then I am decide i am find some way to help out my wife. Then i have written this article for my love I hope you will also enjoy it.

Suggestion are welcome.

Really interesting article! I tend to use some pro naturals argan oil and braid my hair before bed, that usually does the trick!

That's my trick as well, works wonders too.


Put your hair into two large brais after detangling it. Pull the braids as tight as you can without getting a headache or messing with the roots of your hair. Then you hair should be manageable. Kinda curly but mostly straight and easy to maintain. Works with natural hair too.

Straight, sleek, super sexy hair has always been present on the scene.
From Hollywood to the Milan runway, every women must perfect her
straight and silky look.

Sorry to hear that :( I pretty much gave up trying to get straight hair ( I've only ironed my hair twice) and I embraced my curls. My curls are my trademark and I wouldn't give them up for anything. My hair used to be really frizzy but recently its been much smoother and softer. I think its because I started eating healthier this past year. I use Garnier Fructus Style anti-humidity smoothing milk after I shower and in the morning to tame it. It took me while to learn what's best for my hair; I stopped brushing it at all and only untangle the knots in the shower so the curls are more defined. It takes a lot of trial and error to find what's best for your hair and what makes you happy.

As for getting straight hair, you can look into long lasting treatments. My sister, who has hair like mine got a keratin treatment, which was all natural and her hair was slightly wavy without any frizz, even in the humid summertime. If you take good care of your hair it can last up to six months

If you like straight hairs,then use oil and iron your hairs,not daily like once in a week.I used to have verrrrry curly hairs when i was younger,but then i had to cut all my hairs because they were getting damaged.But when my hairs grew again,they came out so straight.So get a haircute like short bob or any thing like that so maybe it can chnage your hairs....

When I tried this I got confused on how to pin it. I think it would be easier to put a small video with it next time.

I actually like your curly hair better!

Try Karmin Products Line! I have been using the Karmin clipless curling wand for about a year now and love it. It such a versatile tool! I can use it to curl, wave or just simply add volume to my hair. I am most impressed with how long my curls stay in as I have really thick, stubborn hair but they last all day with just a touch of flexible hold hairspray after using this curling wand.
