How are you straightening with a fan? I would love to know.....Seems like it would make my hair more frizzy than using a blowdryer....

NOOO its actually not. the trick is you really have to control your hair, use a paddle brush, keep brushing through it, and keep drying way after you THINK its dry, because sometimes you think its cold (and dry) when its really still damp. and then it frizzes. oh also the ends of your hair are really tricky, if your hair has a lot of layers like mine. but dont worry about frizz at ALL, my hair is always super glossy when im done. and considerably softer.
the downside is that it takes a while, the upside is your arms dont ache. and of course, your hair likes it too.
and dont think that standing in front of the fan is going to be freezing either. its like room temperature. i was doing it all winter in my freezing bedroom haha.
but i seriously love it. not as much as curly hair, but still. its nice to have a heat-free changeup. :thumbleft:

oh and sorry i didnt answer your very first question...i saw it on youtube actually, she explains it really well and she apparently has curly hair herself which is always a HUGE bonus. i only listen to curly-haired people when i watch youtube tutorials about hair...

That has to be damaging, you are brushing repeatedly when wet and vulnerable.

I know exactly what video you are talking about! I tried it 2 times before but I didn't have good results. Probably because like you say, I didn't do it long enough. That's great it works for you though because I felt the girl in the videos hair was nearly curly, more of a wave so I thought that was why it wasn't working well.

yeah i did notice she had kinda fine and wavy/curly hair, also she had no layers and layers are sooooo tough. it works well when you got the hang of it and when you got the time lol.
also, firefox, i do it when my hair is damp, not wet. and even if it does damage, its still less damaging than heat so i think im good.

Thanks, I might have to try it, I love wearing my hair straight. I'm in humid Houston I have started wearing my hair curly again for the summer months. I'm not co-washing...but am leaving a lot of conditioner in my hair....My curls look better than ever.
