protective styling

I'm getting senegalese twists installed soon and my mom wants me to blow dry my hair when I get them in. i've already put heat on my hair twice already in 2015 and I want to keep heat usage to a minimum. If I absolutely HAVE to put heat on my hair then I'll just deal with it but if anybody knows of some alternatives please let me know!

Hair-length Goal: AP length when curly
Still trying to figure out my curly hair needs & regimen

    You can do a heatless stretch out method like banding. There's lots of info on YouTube about banding if you just do a quick search on there. I would link a few vids here but I don't want to break rules (I don't think we're allowed to put links in our posts?)


    Anyway, HTH! :wink:

    I have a follow-up question, so do i have to use headbands or can I use elastic hair ties instead?
