Believe it or not, it is possible to have beautiful hair without harmful styling tools. Using blow dryers, flat irons and curling irons is convenient, but after a while, they start to take a toll on our hair. Here, you will find some beautiful hairstyles that can be achieved without these tools so you can give your hair a break.
Braiding is a great way to achieve a crimped look without a crimper. With this, the bigger you make the braids, the looser your wave will look. This style works best on wet hair. You can even put the braids in at night, let them dry and then take them out in the morning. This particular style does take a while to dry. Be sure to towel dry your hair before braiding to allow for quick drying time.
An alternative way of doing this is by braiding the hair while it’s dry, then spritzing a small amount of water all over. Make sure the braids are all the way to the scalp and use rubber bands or bobby pins at the bottom to tie them off. To help hold the look, try using a medium hold spray gel after spraying the water on.
Rollers are another great way to get a beautiful hairstyle without heat. In addition to regular rollers, there are foam rollers, velcro rollers, and several other kinds to allow you to curl your hair without the use of heat. Many of them are comfortable enough to sleep in.
Bobby pins are of great use when it comes to hairstyles without heat too. You can pin your hair up in different styles so that when it dries, you can take them out and have a beautiful style. The great thing about making a style this way is that you can usually put them in somewhat loose, so they won’t bother you too much if you choose to sleep in them.
One of my favorite styles to make with bobby pins is ringlets. All you have to do for this one is take one inch sections of hair and round them up into a circle. Pin them up and when they dry, you’ll have beautiful curls! Again with this one, make sure you are curling them all the way up to the scalp if you want your hair to look more voluminous.
Scrunching is a very quick way to achieve a no heat hairstyle. If you already have some sort of natural wave in your hair, this will work great. If you like the hard, crunchy look, try a hard holding gel. Whether you want a spray or tube gel is just your preference, but it is available in both.
It you’d rather have a loose wave look that’s not hard, try a curling cream. There are hard and soft holds in these as well, but they shouldn’t make your hair hard unless too much is used.
So, if a no heat hairstyle is what you’re looking for, try these ideas. You’re hair will look great getting a break from all the heat and it will show. Even if you only have time to do this once a week, it will surely help. Enjoy these and have fun!
