A Dominican blow out still uses heat, but most of the heat is from a hooded dryer. It's what most in my area call a Roller wrap: Set the hair on xl magnetic rollers to dry, take rollers out to brush (and wrap), and then use a curling iron or flat-iron(somtimes a blow-dryer) to smooth and style.
Both my sisters get their hair done at Dominican salons and this is what they do. My mom used this method at home, and I never had breakage and dryness until I started highlighting and using the CHI.

I would try to do the Dominican method, next time.

I just want to point out a common misconception that many people, including myself, have had. Coarse hair does not equal curly or kinky. Asian women frequently have coarse hair and they mostly have type 1 hair. The kinkiest hair type, 4B is usually quite fine. That, along with all of the bends and curves, is why it's so easy to damage it.

You can't tell if you actually have coarse, medium, or fine hair unless you look at the individual strand to measure its thickness. There are articles about measurements. I'll see if I can find them.

By coarse, I meant the texture. I have coarse and curly hair and I think coarse hair tends to be stronger and fine hair more fragile, so I would think that fine and curly hair would be more easily damaged by straightening, regardless of how curly it is.

I wonder why this method has the Dominican name (or other countries) attached to it? I think this is a common technique throughout Latin America and the Caribbean - I've known it and seen it done all my life.

You got me. I'm Dominican and this is what my mom did and what the salons we went to did. Maybe other caribbean salons do this too. I've never been to any others, so I'm not sure why this method is attributed to Dominicans.

I thinks its mainly because the Dominican people are the main ones using this technique. I'm Dominican, and I've known my family to use this technique, But also all over all you see ie either, Domincan salons, African braiding, black, and white salons, (I live in Brooklyn, NY)

We grew up in midtown Manhattan, but spent a lot of time in Washington Heights--nothing but Domincian salons there.
