Heatless Curls – Hairspiration Saturday

Hey Guys! So a couple of days ago I received a comment on my ‘Hair Essentials’ post. Now this comment was by Hanneledesma¬†and it was a request on some heatless curls as I mentioned there are so many options. So without further a do, here are some of the many ways to create curls without the use of heat:

1) Foam Hair Roller Sticks

Now this is my personal favourite method and I use it all the time. They’re similar to traditional hair rollers but they’re made of foam and you can control how tight you want the curl to be without having to purchase different sized ones. To use them all you have to do is section off a piece of hair and wrap it around the roller. Then twist it at the scalp to stay in place. Use 1 for a tight curl or 2-3 for a looser curl or a beachy wave. I tend to leave them in over night as they do take a couple hours but be prepared to look like Medusa. They’re super easy to do yourself and really cheap to purchase!

2) Clips or Bobby Pins

Now this is a tedious method. It takes a lot of time to create but it is in turn free. All you have to do it simply twist a section of hair until it reaches your scalp and the bobby pin it in place. The main reason this takes long it due to the pinning in place. You will mostly need about 2 or 3 bobby pins or a clip and they do sometimes fall out. This one again takes a while however and isn’t ideal for overnight as the curls will get squashed. It is also a little confusing to do on your own.


3) Bananas, Water and Leave in Conditioner

Now this may sound odd but I threw this in as it’s a quick method. I think it’s cool and creative but it does give slightly looser waves. I saw this in one of Rclbeauty101 videos and thought it was genius. Basically what you do is you start by dampening your hair. You then apply the leave in conditioner to the hair you just dampened. Then wrap your hair around a banana the size of your choice (the smaller the banana the tighter the curl) and pin you hair in place. Wait about 1 minute or so until your hair is dry and then release the hair. Then move on to the rest of your head. Super simple!
