Heatless Curls 3 Ways
With spring right around the corner, what better way to style your hair then with heatless curls. I absolutely adore when I put curls in my hair, but hate constantly having to put heat on it. Over the past week, I decided to try three different heatless curl techniques and was super excited with the results!
One of my favorite techniques from the past has been braiding my wet hair after I shower, then leaving them overnight. If I want even more defined curls, I will sometimes wear the braids for a whole day and sleep on them for two nights. This week I decided to only keep the braids for a single night. These were my results after taking out one braid and then after styling it for the day. I styled my curls with the Wild Thing headband in black with my favorite thrifted turtle neck for a fun all day look.
I was super impressed that these curls lasted all day. When I got home for dinner, I still had beautiful waves that could be worn the next day as well.
This technique was something I had seen on TikTok and I was super eager to try. To create these curls grab the belt from a bathrobe or an old t-shirt. With wet or damp hair, wrap pieces of hair around the belt/t-shirt starting at the top. I started with the left side and then tied my hair to the belt with a hair tie. Repeat this process on the right side. I sprayed my hair with water one more time before securing both sections to the back of my head with a claw clip. My hair is very thick and textured, so I use bigger claw clips like the Swanky Claw Clips. After two hours, I took my hair out and boy was I surprised at the results.
I had beautiful ringlet curls that I would have normally would have taken me two hours of hard work with my curling wand. This was by far my favorite technique and I will be excited to try leaving the wrap in overnight to see if the results are even better. I styled these luxurious curls with the Teal Antique Floral Knotted Headband for a fun Spring look.
DIY Curl Mousse
For my final heatless curl technique, I wanted something that would amplify my natural curls in my hair. I decided to try a DIY Curl Mousse. For this, you will need a spray bottle and your favorite conditioner. I put a tablespoon of conditioner into the spray bottle and filled the rest with water, before giving the bottle a good shake. Then after I hopped out of the shower, I immediately sprayed the mixture into my hair and scrunched it up, before pulling it back with my Microfiber Spa Headband.
The spray added more bounce to my natural curls, while also keeping them hydrated and away from harmful chemicals. While I am not sure how this technique would do for people with straighter hair, I can say it absolutely amplified my natural waves.
All and all, I am super happy with my heatless curl results. If you are looking for easy fun ways to style your hair, I’d highly recommend all of these methods.
