Beauty Bits - Straight Hair With No Heat

Beauty Bits - Straight Hair With No Heat

You don't need to listen to what the girl is saying in this video (no, that is not me). Just pay attention to how she arranges those bobby pins around her head. Start pinning the hair from the side where you have a natural part. After at least 30 min, remove them all, part your hair to the opposite side and pin it all again. It works better with humid hair - not soaking wet, or completely dry - and you should calculate how much time you have to keep your hair pinned and change the part half way. It doesn't need to be perfect or look perfect.

Golden rules are:

  • pin humid hair
  • if you live in a dry climate, it will stay put, and you can achieve good results with only 1 hour
  • if you live in a humid climate, or if you have a lot of hair, or if it's too curly, do it overnight, and set hair with spray to keep results
  • hair should look natural when you let it loose, like a bouncy naturally straight hair. 
  • don't pull it too tight, or you will have a stonking headache
  • when you turn the second side, you should use less pins than used on the first side. 
  • remember to alternate: one at the front, one from the centre of the head
  • use the longest bobby pins you can find, small ones will not work
  • it shouldn't hurt to sleep on the pins, loosen them up
  • use a silky scarf on your head or sleep on a silky pillow case. It will avoid frizz and static.
If I do that? Yes. I don't like hair drier or flat iron. Whatever I can do to keep the integrity of my hair, I do. I grow up in Rio, very humid, and my hair used to be beautifully curled over there. I got the same effect when I go to Texas. But in London and New Mexico, my hair looks flat and frizzy, it took me a long while to find out what to do, which products to use, how to style it. So I called my mother and over the phone she guided me on how to pin my hair. I know it is silly, but mothers always know best, right? ;)

Minha melhor dica de cabelo? Nao use secador e nem chapinha. Lave seu cabelo a noite e durma de touca. Nao se esqueca de virar o lado do cabelo, nao aperte muito, e nao se estresse porque nao eh uma ciencia exata. Tampouco precisa alternar um grampo por cima e outro por baixo. Eu só uso 3 por dentro, o resto vou colocando por fora mesmo, e quando vai dando volta na cabeca, eu uso o grampo que já está lá. Voce quer o cabelo natural e com balanco, certo? Quando se tenta a todo custo colocar cada fio debaixo de grampinho o resultado é um cabelo espigado e tao feio quanto uma escova mal-feita.

Nao tem nenhum vídeo no Youtube exatamente do jeito que eu faco. Esse é o que eu achei mais didático e  gosto de comoque a menina apresenta, nao inventa muita frescura que nao existe. Cada um vai fazer de um jeito porque nem todas as cabeleiras sao iguais - cabelos diferentes, técnicas diferentes.

O mais importante de tudo eh saber que TEM que virar o cabelo, senao fica uma marca esquisitíssima. Para evitar essa marca, EU prefiro partir o cabelo acima da orelha (igual careca que deixa os fiapos crescerem nas laterais e joga por cima da cabeca para fingir que tem cabelo, sabe?). Um pouco para a esquerda, um pouco para a direita. Pronto. Sem stress e nem complicacao. E nem ciencia exata.
