Default Straightening bangs

Does anyone know of any methods on how to straighten bangs without heat? Would clipping them back while drying work?

Thanks

Unfortunately you can't make your bangs straight without heat.
You can either blow dry your bangs straight, or use a heating iron. I use the heating iron on my bangs everyday, and my hair seems to be fine.

You can definitely make it straight without heat o.O Just have to let it dry COMPLETELY before you take out whatever is pulling it straight. Which is why a straightening iron would definitely be the easier choice--especially since bangs usually grow out fast enough to not be too badly hurt by the straightening iron. But if you can find a way to clip them back really tightly, it'll work. (I used to always pull my hair back into a ponytail when it was wet, and clip my bangs to the sides on that, which just didn't budge, so it dried straight--on loose wavy hair, it may be harder to get it that tight, and if it's not tight it won't work)

Lody, sure, I guess you could make it somewhat straight by doing that, but you get much better results with using a flat iron.

Aw thanks!


Well, I'm going to try the clipping method, and if that doesn't work well enough I can always just flat iron I guess. (But I'd prefer not to, since my hair is already damaged enough as it is haha)

I agree, you would get better results with a flat iron xD Didn't mean to sound too argumentative, just wanted to point out that if you're really trying to stay away from heat, there's an alternative.
Hope it worked, Britney! (I agree with pulchri2dinous, you look gorgeous in your avatar, btw. I'm jealous )

Oh theres definately an easy way without heat. When i get out of the shower when my hair is still really wet. I pull my hair thats part of my bangs away from the rest of my hair and i brush it across my forehead so its looks like the shape it would b when i want it to try. Then take a bobby pin or a clip that wont make a kink in your hair. Pull ur bangs up and clip them about directly behind the peak of the curv of ur bangs or just a normal like sweep back so u get the curve in the front of ur bangs that u want. Leave it there untill it dries and it will ususally dry very soft with minimal frizz. Pull it out when its dry and u have ur bangs, gently tease rigt near the roots of your part if u want some more volume. It definately works, good luck!

I always straighten my fringe (bangs)
And seeing as it's short, I cut it often, so it don't generally get split ends
See my picture, that's what my fringe is like when i straighten it.
I've straightened my fringe for like.. 3 years now, and I have honestly probably had 3 weeks off from that, on holiday where I can't get straighteners .
I keep vowing to grow it out because it supposedly wrecks my hair, but I have no evidence for that, so I don't
I try to use a straightening cream, but i find it makes it greasy compared to the rest of my hair, so i use a spray.
I also usually use hair dryers, but i find if i do, it makes it very.. limp.
I generally wait for my fringe to dry before I straighten it, but I often don't have time, so I do occasionally put the irons on my hair whilst it's damp.
Don't do it, the steam goes on your forehead and in your eyes, painful

Iknow this ended awhile ago, but if kaboom still gets on, I'm hoping to get that kind of bangs--
so, i'm wondering if you have a picture either of your hair or someone with similar hair so that i can see what straight blunt bangs with curly hair look like? I want to do it but a lot of people on here say it looks bad, even though i think it would be cool.

also, how do you part hair like that, or self trim it?

I used to get on here a lot when I was like, 12 or 13 (and first figuring out how to stop straightening my hair without being bullied), so if you happen to see some older posts of mine, shh. No judging.

Guys, it's called a rollerset.

Expert village has a lot of videos on rollersetting curly hair. There are also tons of videos on youtube about it.
