10 Ways to Curl Your Hair Without Heat

While a curling iron is a very effective method of curling your hair, it can be time-consuming and the heat from such a tool can damage your hair. Fortunately, there are several tips to curl your hair naturally and without heat…

1-The Foil Wrappers

You have certainly already tried this technique when you were little… All you need is some scraps of fabric or paper towels. Fold them over to form a strip. 

Divide your hair into several strands and wrap each of them in a band. Once at the top, all you have to do is tie a knot. Do it before bed for effortless, heat-free curls when you wake up! 

The advantage of this technique is that you can adapt it to your desires, the thinner your locks, the curlier your hair will be. You can even decide to tie your bands before reaching the top of the skull for loops on the lengths only.

2-The African Braid

On semi-dry hair, make a braid, or African, on each side of the skull. The tighter it is, the tighter your curls will be too. For a natural wavy effect, consider loosening your braids by lightly pulling on a few strands. 

The advantage of this technique is that you can leave your home with a pretty bohemian hairstyle while waiting to undo your braids.

3-Several Braids

For a natural and marked effect, especially if you have long hair, do not hesitate to make several normal braids of different sizes. 

This way, your curls won’t all be the same size and will look more natural. We always respect the principle that the tighter the braids, the tighter the curls!

4-The Scarf Technique

For pretty curls on your lengths, make a high ponytail. Take a thin, long scarf and fold it in half widthwise. Wedge the tip of your ponytail between the two pieces of a scarf (you can use a pin that you will remove later) and roll-up. 

Go up to the base of your ponytail and tie the scarf, taking care to surround the elastic of your ponytail. This is a simple, effective method that allows you to wear your future curls in a pretty bun decorated with a scarf. The thicker your scarf, the wider your curls will be.

5-The Bun

A simple bun on damp hair can create lovely curls without heat. Grab your hair as if you were doing a ponytail. Make a twist and wrap it around itself to form your bun. 

A single bun will give a fuzzy and natural wavy on the lengths thanks to wide undulations. Opt for two buns, one on each side, if your hair is long, for tighter, longer-lasting waves.

6-Crown Twists

On damp hair, place your hair as usual (part in the middle or on the side). Then divide your hair into two more or less equal portions. Make a twist starting with your front locks, wrap your hair all the way down and hold the twist in place with a hair clip. 

Do the same on the other side and bring your twists up so you can tie them together above your head. All you have to do is go to bed for beautiful curls without heat when you wake up.

7-Necklace Twists

If you are used to sleeping on your side, the previous method might bother you. So proceed in the same way, but this time tie your twists together with an elastic, on the front, like a pretty hair necklace.

8-The Mini Buns

In the same vein as the bun method, this method allows you to create very tight curls, which start from the top of the skull to the ends. You will be able to obtain an almost curly hair and a nice volume. 

Divide your hair into 4, 6, or 8 portions using a comb. Grab a strand and roll it up until it folds back on itself. When it starts to spin, wrap it around like a small bun and keep spinning. Then fix your mini-bun with an elastic and do the same for the rest of the hair.

9-With a Headband

This method guarantees you a romantic and trendy wavy! Put a headband on your head, over your hair like a bohemian headband. 

Twist a section of hair starting at the outline of the face and wrap the twist around the headband. Proceed in the same way for the rest of your hair and sleep with it to see a sublime wavy emerging when you wake up.

10-With the Belt of your Bathrobe!

This is an original technique, to say the least… Place a bathrobe belt on your head, like a headband, taking care to place the middle of the belt just above where you are doing your parting. Secure it with a pin for more comfort. 

Divide your hair into two parts. Using a comb, divide your hair into strips, from the front until it is parted behind your skull. Make two wicks and wrap them one by one delicately around the belt, crossing them. 

Proceed in this way to the ends and do the same on the other side for well-defined, natural, and voluminous curls.
