    Posted: Dec 01 2009 at 2:29pm

hi, im trying to find an alternative style for my relaxed hair for school that requires little or no heat.  I usually wash or co-wash once a week and blowdry and flat iron my hair once a week (i also DC my hair as often as possible) the problem is that im worried that flat ironing my hair so much will cause it to break. I have a history of bad breakage due to overprocessing (its a miracle that i even have any hair at all) I have recently been able to retain my SL hair growth but scared that it will break again. Do any of you ladies have any advice on what other styles i can wear to minimize my heat syling and relaxing to retain my length? TIASmile

P.S. I dont wear braids and i dont have money for weave. i have already tried wearing it wavy (i used HE totally twisted line) and it didnt work out so well (hair got poofy and dryConfused) so if any one can tell me a better way to acheive this style i would be more than grateful. Also any good moisturizers that can be found at sally's target or walmart will be appreciatedBig%20smile

1. Try straw sets and visit you tube on how to do a straw set.
2. Try two strand twists using setting lotions like lottabody or Isoplus wrap lotion. These are two setting lotions that usually doesn't make the hair hard.
3. Try some wave gels after shampooing and conditioning
 
All of these styles can be used and air dry

You can try rollersetting
You can also try using the bantu knot method to get a curly look without heat.
There are tutorials on youtube for both of these.

I co-sign on the bantu knots... they're easy and make really cute curls.

Yes, try bantu knot out or braid outs.  I've done both and they come out great.  The braid out gives you a wavy look.  The bantu knots is curly.  Youtube has excellent videos for both.  I would also look up heatless styles on Youtube.
