Heat free straightening

Is there such a thing? If so, what can I use? Will it work on 3c/4a hair?
Sorry to tell you this but no. Any heat free straightening method would not work on your hair.
There are tutorials on YouTube. However, I tried a great deal of them with my 3a hair and none worked :/

I am tempted sometimes to buy a gentle at-home relaxer (if there is such a thing) to loosen my 3b curls a bit. I would still air-dry, so I was hoping I wouldn't have to do ironing or blow-drying to initially activate the relaxer product.

Oh ok. Just wondering if there was such a thing. But there may not be. My curiosity was killing me.

But I'm more careful when I twist the curls. I usually do that over night & bun the next day. That night, I unwind a section of curls at a time until they're straight, & wrap them around my head like my hair is straight.You can brush the hair as well with a light oil or serum, it may frizz it out though. Bobby pin around the head, sating scarf tight around it, & go to bed. When you wake up they will be pretty straight, possibly a little wavy. The more nights you wrap like this the better it gets. You can also roller set like this:

But as you can see the roots never get straight. Unless maybe you use small sections & then brush & wrap. These gets my hair faily straight, just not bone straight
