How To Curl Your Hair Without Heat Tools

Since ancient times, women have been curling their hair without using heat! Most of these techniques involve putting slightly damp hair to bed and waking up with perfectly curled hair. Some techniques focus on your hair’s inherent wave. Look through the list to find the approach that works best for the type of hair and fashion you want.

Braids

Any type of braid can give your hair a beachy effect if you wear it in it overnight. As long as the hair can be braided, this is applicable to all lengths. At least two French or Dutch braids should be used to achieve the best results.

If you prefer a smaller, tighter curl pattern, you can add more. This seems to work best with 3 Dutch braids. Make sure that they are not too tightly braided and that they are not perfectly straight where the braids part. Instead, create a subtle zigzag part to prevent the hair from splitting when it is styled. Also, make sure to cover your head with a silk scarf at night to prevent frizz and to stop your layers from falling out of your braids.

You Will Need

  • 2 Hair Ties
  • Hairspray or Other Holding Product

DIY

  • Wait until your hair is 70% dry after washing it.
  • Make a side braid in your hair after dividing it.
  • Make 2 regular braids on either side of your head if you only want waves in the ends of your hair.
  • Make 2 French braids or boxer braids on either side of your head for waves that start near the roots of your hair.
  • Make sure the braids are tight to prevent frizzing when you open them.
  • Till your hair is completely dry, keep the braids in place. You can sleep with the braids in place and take them out in the morning.
  • Your hair should be finger combed before being finished with a hold-enhancing product.

Twisted Buns

You can get loose waves by sleeping with your hair in simple twisted buns. The wave will be tighter the shorter your hair is and the more buns you have. For hair that is shorter than your shoulders, this technique is not advised. The method is straightforward: just twist sections of your hair into buns and fasten with bobby pins (creases will be left behind by rubber bands..) To avoid the hair splitting while it is down, remember to avoid perfectly dividing your sections. Utilize a silk scarf to avoid frizz.

You Will Need

  • 2 Hair Ties
  • Sea-Salt Spray or Other Holding Product

DIY

  • By washing it or using a spray bottle, dampen your hair. Utilizing a volumizing shampoo is a smart idea.
  • To divide your hair into two sections, part it down the middle.
  • The first section should be gathered into a high pigtail before beginning to twist it until it resembles a rope.
  • Up until the end, keep wrapping the hair around itself.
  • Use a hair tie to fasten.
  • Go to bed after completing this process with the other section.
  • You can choose to keep this hairdo on until your hair is completely dry for a few hours.
  • When your hair is dry, take the twisted buns off and comb your hair by running your fingers through it.
  • To add hold and volume, spritz on some sea-salt spray before scrunching.

Headband Method

You can achieve bouncy barrel curls by curling your hair while wearing a headband. Given that you can wrap all of the hair around the headband at least twice, this technique works for all hair lengths. Shorter hair may result in tighter looks and some hair that shifts during the night.

You Will Need

  • Headband
  • Blow Dryer (optional)
  • Sea-salt Spray or Other Holding Product

DIY

  • Put a headband on and let your hair get a little damp.
  • Start wrapping the headband with your hair, dividing it into two sections.
  • Pin your hair to keep it in place once you reach the end.
  • Pin the second section in place after repeating the previous step.
  • You can either go to bed with your hair wrapped around the headband or use a blow dryer on the cool setting to hasten the drying process.
  • Unpin your hair and let it fall once it is completely dry.
  • Your hair should be finger-combed before being scrunched with a sea-salt spray to maintain the volume.

Velcro Rollers

Your hair will look more “blow-out” if you use rollers. This approach is very simple. If you had used a curling iron, part your hair in the same way. Do not divide your hair into straight sections. Consider the rollers to be your curling iron, and begin by wrapping your hair around them from the ends up to the scalp. To avoid frizz while you sleep, wrap yourself in a silk scarf.

You Will Need

  • Velcro Rollers
  • Towel
  • Comb
  • Hairspray or Other Product For Hold

DIY

  • Use a volumizing shampoo to wash your hair, or simply mist some water on it.
  • Utilizing a towel, squeeze out the extra moisture from your hair.
  • If you have thick hair, divide it into sections and roll it up. If your hair is fine, you can omit the sectioning.
  • Make sure to roll up until the rollers are pressed firmly against your scalp.
  • The rollers won’t need to be fastened with pins. It’s possible that the section you took is too thick if the roller isn’t sticking.
  • When your hair is completely dry, wait a couple of hours with the rollers in. During this time, you can apply makeup or finish up household chores.
  • Uncurl your hair, then finger comb it. Add hairspray at the end for hold.

All Pinned

This timeless look is extremely simple to achieve without using heat, and it will never go out of style. To have gorgeous curls when you wake up in the morning, all you would need to do is pin your hair before going to bed.

You Will Need

  • Towel
  • Wide-Tooth Comb
  • Hair Gel
  • Hair Pins
  • Cotton Scarf
  • Hair Gel
  • Hairspray

DIY

  • Use a good volumizing shampoo to wash your hair, and then condition it. While conditioning your hair, it would be a good idea to detangle it with a wide-tooth comb.
  • When towel-drying your hair, be careful not to rub your hair with the towel; instead, gently squeeze out any excess water.
  • Apply some hair gel or any other hold-enhancing product.
  • Divide the top of your hair into sections. Bun it up tight. This section will be the last one you work on.
  • Take a 1-inch section of hair from the side and create a loop by wrapping the end around your index finger. With your thumb and index finger, secure it in place.
  • As soon as the section is snug against your roots, begin rolling it upward. Make sure to roll your hair up and away from your face.
  • Use a hairpin to hold the rolled-up portion flat against your scalp. Your hair pins will leave indentations in your hair if the sections are too thick.
  • With the remainder of your hair, repeat this procedure. After finishing the bottom, focus on the crown and continue working on it until all of your hair is pinned up.
  • To keep the pins in place while you sleep, wrap a silk scarf around your hair. The scarf will also aid in drying out your hair’s moisture.
  • The moment you awake, undo your curls. Once your hair is 100 percent dry, you should take the pins out. Use of a blow dryer will frizz up your hair and undo curls; avoid using one.
  • Once all the pins have been taken out, lightly finger-comb your hair to get rid of the piecey appearance. For added hold, spray some hairspray on.
