Let’s face it, most of us are not happy with the hair we are born with. That is why many of us use styling to get our hair to our liking. Many of us use heating tools, such as flat irons, curling irons, and hair dryers to achieve our wanted result. However, even with heat protectant, heat is very damaging to our hair. Not only does heat give us dead ends, but damaged hair also makes it look frizzier and forces us to get more frequent haircuts (which how many times does “just a trim” turn into way shorter than we wanted). In order to maintain healthy and strong hair, you should really limit the amount of heat you put on your hair. We are going to give you two ways to achieve heatless curls so that you can have pretty hair that does not damage your hair- which I can defend because I go multiple months without a haircut and my hairdresser is amazed of how healthy my hair is for how long I go without a haircut!

Twist Method:

My go-to hair trick works for all hair types. First, wash your hair and allow it to dry a little until it is damp. Apply any hair products that you normally use and comb out your hair. Depending on the thickness of your hair, divide your hair into sections. The thicker your hair, the more sections you will need. Begin twisting the sections of your hair either outwards or inwards (depending on the way you want the curl to go). Continue to twist your hair until it twists into a bun. Secure the bun with a hair tie or bobby pin. Leave the bun(s) in for multiple hours(either just a few or even overnight) and take them out and you will get beautiful natural looking curls. 


Spiral Curlers:

You can buy these re-useable rods from target or Walmart for about $10. Again start with clean and damp hair, and apply your hair product of choice. Take a rod and begin wrapping your hair around it. Wrap it in the way that you want to end up. If you want more spiral curls, leave spaces on the rod when you wrap it. Fold the rods in to secure the hair and sleep with it overnight. When you wake up take the rods out and soften the curls with your fingers. This method gives you bouncy full curls.
