It won't be wrong to say that hair can make or break your appearance. After all, it works like the final stroke to your look. No matter how much bling you have added to the dress but if the hair is not in place, all your efforts will fail to make the statement. Be it for the office or an evening with friends, an attention-worthy hairdo is what you need to make heads turn. Well, at the same time, we can't ignore the fact that a perfect hairdo can burn a hole in your pocket. On top of that, the heat ends up damaging the tresses. Now, what if we tell you that you can style them at a minimal cost and with no heat? Oh yes, you read that right. With our tips and tricks, style those luscious tresses minus the heat.
6 Ways To Achieve Heatless Curls
1. Hair Rollers
Using a roller is one of the oldest ways to get curls and, surprisingly, it still works like a charm. All you need to do is just take a shower or get your hair wet using a spray bottle. Now get those rollers out of your cupboard and start rolling. Make sure to roll the tresses in sections. You can use pins or a scarf to keep them in place. Wait for a few hours until your hair is dry or just sleep with the rollers on. Then remove them and finger-comb to get bouncy curls.
3. Bantu Knots
This method is for those who want small and springy curls. First, wash your hair and let it dry to about 80%. Now take a 1-2 inch section and start twisting them together like a rope. Then twist the section around itself to form a bun. Repeat the process and secure them using a bobby pin. Sleep with the bantu knots and open them in the morning to get the desired curls.
This is another easy way to get curls without heating. Just wear your headband before going to bed and roll the strands of your hair around it in the form of loops. Take the headband off in the morning, comb using your fingers, and you will get some elegant and natural-looking waves.
Yes, braiding too can get you some bouncy curls. Provided that you do it correctly. It is advised to make a French braid as it will give you curls that start close to your scalp. Make sure to make two such braids one on each side.
6. Sock bun
This hack for getting loose curls can come in really handy for you. You have to just cut the tip of your old sock and roll it upwards to make a doughnut. Now pull your ponytail through the sock bun and then pull sections through it. Let your hair stay like that overnight and remove the sock to get wavy locks.
