Doobies-other no heat ways to stretch hair?

So my mom keeps telling me that if I do doobies my hair will loosen its curl dramatically over time. She also says rollers do the same thing. Is this true? I am on the lookout for ways to stretch it out. Bantu knots,twist outs all give me tight curls. I have naturally 3b/c curls anyway, so i wanna loosen it up. Anyone have success with doobies or anything else?

The reason why the curl loosens over time with heat is because of heat damage, you're killing your hair to make it looser.

Ways to display your length with tighter curls (Im a 3b/3c/4a mix) is to use a heavier leave in and gel to weigh down your curls.

Be careful with doobies because of the heat. I use to get doobies all the time and I notice my hair is a little thinner and also I have heat damage. This comes from years of straighten my hair and I do not have a perm.

Good Luck!
Are there anyways to do it without heat? Like semi straighten? Or loosen?

Nope, nothing short of chemically altering it or using mass amounts of heat will do that.

You can search the site for more info, but here's a few links to get you started:

Some people have experienced damage (hair drying out, breakage, etc.) from the baking soda especially...so eh do your research before you try one of these.
Thanks!! I tried baking soda...no thank you. My hair felt awful after. I havent tried the others but I will definitely will. I heard henna changes your hair color though?

Those with really dark brown/black hair find that henna w/o the aforementioned additives will just provide a glossy finish to your hair--kind of like a glaze.

If you try henna, let me know the results! I'm thinking about experimenting with it over the summer, but I haven't worked up the nerve. I want curl elongation on about 75% of my head, but the part near the crown is kind of loose/wavy...I'm scared henna might straighten it.

Oh and another note: it seems that most people prefer to use body art quality henna for their hair. I've read that the brands marked "henna for hair" often have other chemicals/salts which can damage your hair--or turn it green
Oh & I've heard if Yr using clay treatments like henna etc that it can really dry out Yr hair. So make dure to do Yr research 1st when applying so you can do so w/out drying out Yr hair.

Treasured locks claim to be able to
Loosen Yr curls with their naturalaxer - not a relaxer but a clay treatment. I have bought the kit & have it in the bathroom ready to try. Just need to find the time...

Anyone else tried it?
