During the summer, sun and chlorine can take a toll on your tresses, especially when combined with the damage inflicted by blow-dryers, straightening irons, and curling irons. Fortunately, there are ways to get beautiful curls without electrical devices. The stylists at Keratin Lounge in New York, NY, and Stroudsburg, PA, share three ways to get hair salon-quality curls without using heat.
3 Ways to Curl Your Hair Without Hot Devices
Casual Waves from Braids
For a beachy, carefree look, you can’t go wrong with heatless waves from braids. The best way to achieve this style is to start with clean, damp, and combed hair. Braid your tresses into two pigtails, tie the ends with bands, and wait for your hair to dry. You even can get your eight hours of beauty rest with this method — when you wake up, just unbraid your hair and run your fingers through it for natural-looking waves.
Voluminous Curls With a Sock
If you’re looking for big, full curls, cut the toe off a clean tube sock and roll it into a doughnut shape. Put your hair in a high ponytail and pull it through the center of the sock. Position the sock at the end of the ponytail and tuck the ends of your hair around it, slowly rolling it toward your head. Let your hair set for a few hours or overnight, then remove the sock and ponytail to create voluminous curls.
Classic Curls With Rollers
There’s a reason rollers have been used for so long — they're an easy and affordable way to create curls and big waves. Along with the hard plastic ones of the past, there are other types to consider, including foam and self-holding versions that don’t need pins.
