For several years now straight hair has been the most coveted hair type. Women spend hours every day with their flat iron and hundreds of dollars on styling products and salon treatments to give them the straight strands they crave. But the winds have shifted and curly hair is back in fashion. This is great news for naturally curly girls, but what’s a gal with stick-straight strands to do. You can either get a perm or spend hours every week heat setting your hair. But wait, there is a third option, no-heat styling. No-heat curls are fast and easy to create and cause zero heat damage to your tresses.
These curls are created using a pair of tights or socks. Start with slightly damp hair and create a French braid down each side using one leg of the stockings or a sock for the center section of each braid. You'll be wrapping one section around the stocking from the front and one section from the back in a spiral motion. Sleep on your stocking braids, and enjoy your bouncy spirals in the morning.
Classic Pin Curls
This hairstyling technique is a classic. Small one-inch sections of slightly damp hair are twisted around two fingers and pinned in place with bobby pins. Cover your hair with a pretty scarf and go to bed. In the morning simply remove the bobby pins and gently finger comb to separate the curls. You can control the curl pattern by adjusting the tightness of your PIN curls. Using smaller sections and twisting them tighter will result in tighter curls, whereas larger sections twisted more loosely will give you larger curls. Change it up a little by twisting each section before wrapping it around your fingers.
If you like beachy waves then this is the heatless styling method you want. Again, start with slightly damp hair. Section hair keeping in mind that the more sections you braid the tighter the waves you're going to create. Braid each section tightly from root to tip and secure with an elastic. Wear your braids to bed, and when you wake up in the morning take them down and gently tousle your hair. Scrunch with a touch of sea salt spray for perfect beachy-looking waves.
