10 Ways To Get Gorgeous Soft Curls Without The Heat

10 Ways To Get Gorgeous Soft Curls Without The Heat

Getting stunning curls doesn’t come easy especially if you have fine hair. When this happens, most people resort to curling irons and blow dryers. While these tools are helpful to achieving those desired locks, they could end up damaging and weakening your hair as they strip your hair of natural oils. What’s more, they weaken the hair's vital elements.

Fortunately, you can give your hair a break from heat and still achieve those coveted curls. Here are some ways to get those desired curls in no time.

1. Using Foam Rollers

Foam rollers are a classic, yet inexpensive way to get gorgeous curls. They are also soft and easy on your head. Using large foam rollers adds volume while small rollers add more curls. 

2. Flex Rods

If you’re tired of all the heat that seems to damage your hair, flex rods are an excellent choice. Flex rods make spiral, yet tight curls. Although it may take time to learn how to use them, once you get the hang of it, you’ll absolutely love the results.

3. Braiding For Natural Waves

Braiding not only gives you another way to style your hair, it also results in cute curls when undone. When preparing your hair for braiding, wash and condition it as usual. Don’t let your hair dry out. Braid it while it still wet into two pigtails. For a natural look, pulls the braids apart using your fingers. You could also use a single braid instead of two parts to get loose looking waves. If you’re looking for tighter curls, section your hair into four sections and braid it. Those with thick hair may need to separate their hair into six or more sections.

Let the hair dry for several hours, or overnight, and loosen the braids in the morning.

4. Use a Bandana

Did you know that you could use bandanas to get curly hair without using heat? Well, this recent trend takes one or two bandanas, cut them into an inch strips. Roll a section of the hair on each piece and tie it to the root. This method helps you achieve smaller curls and is ideal for women with short hair.

5. The Tube Sock Trick

Sometimes, there’s no need for fancy and expensive hair products when all you can do is use the vintage tube socks. This 70's trend is back with a bang, All you need to do is to section your damp hair and roll each part up with a tube sock. This also ensures that the delicate strands are carefully cushioned to avoid chances of your hair frizzing. Tie you hair to the tube sock in the middle. Leave this on until your hair is dry. Once you get the socks out, the results will be bouncy, gorgeous curls.

6. Creating Curls With Side Buns

Wet your hair with water to make it damp. Using a large comb, thoroughly brush your hair. Section your hair into two parts and twist each part tightly. Ensure that the sections are tied in side buns. Leave the buns on overnight and undo them in the morning to achieve light waves.

7. Old shirt For New Curls

Wash and condition your hair and dry it with a towel. Take a t-shirt and cut it into strips. The thinner the strips, the tighter the curls. Part the hair into sections and for each section, roll a strip of hair upwards until you get to the scalp. Roll the sections inside so that the curls turn towards the neck Tie the end of the strip to the hair and repeat this until all the hair is done. Ensure that your hair is completely dry before releasing it.

8. Twist and Curl

Curling your hair doesn’t have to be complicated. After washing your hair, leave it to dry and comb it thoroughly. Part your hair at the center and twist each section until it looks like a tight coil. Secure the sections at the top using a clip. Have this overnight and remove the clips in the morning to enjoy your curls.

9. Use Pin Curls

Pin curls may sound like a 50s trend. However, they are still something you could incorporate in modern beauty. All you need is to wrap your hair around a finger, then pin it down. You can either leave the pin curls in an hour or sleep in them. This creates full-bodied, elegant curls.

10. Baby Wipes

Who would have thought that wipes would be used to create curls. If you’re looking for ultra-curly and tight ringlet, all you need is to wrap an area of the hair around each wipe. Roll it upwards and tie the wipe in place. The reason this works is because the baby wipes are already wet and you won’t have to damp your hair again to get the desired results. Moreover, they are reusable, you just have to wet them with some water and reuse.

Creating curls doesn’t require heat. All you need is some simple tricks up your sleeve. Use the above tips to save money that you would have spent getting your hair curled at the salon. Moreover, you won’t have to suffer from hair loss, loss of shine, split ends, or brittle hair.
