Easy Wavy Hairstyles With No HEAT!

shenae-grimes-long-hairstyle-march-09I showed a very easy way to curl your hair with a curling iron in a previous post. But, using an iron can cause damage to your hair.  If you want to keep your healthy beautiful hair, frequent use of your curling iron or straightening iron is a big NO NO!!

Don’t you worry !! There are a lot of things you can do to have cute easy curly hairstyles without damaging your hair. You can make braids, use rollers, and so on.

But, today, I want to share a SUPER easy way. Your curls won’t be as perfect as the one made by a curling iron, but rather look cute and messy “just woke up” hairstyles!!

A Trick For Waking Up In Already Curled Hair


① Your hair should be damp to start with. You can apply a hair products such as mousse or jel at this time if you like. (This time, I didn’t use any.)

② Divide your hair in 4 sections. First, divide hair in a half vertically, and divide each section horizontally.

③ Take a top section of hair and twist it. Twirl it at the base, just like you would make a bun. Secure it with a hair band.

④ Take a bottom section of hair and twist it. This time, you are going to twirl it around the bun you made first. Secure it with a hair band. This way, bottom curls are going to be bigger.

⑤ Do the same on the other side.

⑥ You are done for now!! Just go to bed like that, and you are gonna have wavy hair by tomorrow morning!! Yay!

* I made buns on the side of my head just because I tend to sleep on my back. If you are the person who sleeps on your side, then you should make them on the back of your head.

⑦ Next morning, style your hair with mousse, jel, or wax by separating and scrunching your curls with fingers. Hairspray to finish.

This time, my curls looked like this! What do you think?? I used hair wax to style.

The curls will come out differently depends on your hair type and how you twist hair. Try this easy trick and see how your hair will look next morning!!

But, what if you don’t like the way curls come out… I can’t say it never happens…

Do not panic! There are some solutions!!

Since you already have wavy voluminous hair, we will take an advantage of it, and turn into different hairstyles in only few minutes!

  1. If I like to sleep on my side and I put the buns on the back of my head instead of the sides, will my hair in the front be straight on the top?

  2. this works really well!! but for me the last step is definitely not taking the twists out because and crinkly and kinda crazy, but i took a spray bottle with plain water in it and used a very wide tooth comb to brush it out just ALITTLE and it came out beautifully!

  3. 4 a krimped hairstyle with NO heat read the following:
    1. Take a shower then let hair air dry 4 bou 20 mins
    2. Pat in a volumizing moose

    If u have frizzy hair or flyaways u may want 2 flatten them with a finishing cream
    *THICK HAIR DOESNT NEED MOOSE:)
    HoPe tHiS hElPs! yAy.

  4. IF YOUR ALWAYS WAKING UP WITH GRESY OILY HAIR IT MITE BE BEST NT TO USE CONDITIONAR ON THE TOP OF YOUR HEAD AS THATS WHAT CAUSE MOST OF IT UM YOU CAN USE IT FOR THE TIPS OF YOUR HAIR IT KINDA HELPS WITH SPLIT ENDS BT GET A CONDITIONAR THAT BEST SUITS YOUR HAIR…AND SHAMPOO YOUR HAIR 2 OR 3 TIMES DIPENDING ON HOW OILY IT IS THEN CONDITION…

  5. I love this idea but my hair is so thick that if I were to put it up at night..it would still be wet in the morning. I would try to blow dry it but that causes my hair to frizz very badly:(

  6. Mikayla, have you thought of trying a dehumidifier instead of a blowdrier? I’ve heard that it works better with thick hair, especially if it is naturally curly/wavy.

  7. Samee!!! I luuvvveee this way of doing my hair. My hair doesn no longer look shapeless and oily because it has brilliant curls which gives it amazing volume! Thank you so much. You are a life saver!!!

  8. i can do all this and once i leave the house my hair frizzes and just falls flat even tho my hair is wavy.and anything oil i put in it..makes it look dirty n gross 🙁 what should i do??

  9. When you straighten your hair use a heat protectant spray it should help to not damage your hair.

  10. I am in high school and straighten my hair often. Although my hair is pretty straight but I just like my hair straight really. My hair is very very fine and thin. But I have a lot of hair. My mom has been telling me that I am killing my hair. And my habitué is getting more frizzy. Because I straighten it every single day. And I just want a hairstyle that will curl my hair but also stay!! That’s my biggest problem with curly hair on me. It refuses to stay); .. So I just wanted to know if you knew anyway that would help my hair to stay like that all day?

  11. Sorry buddy, straight hair is not the greatest at staying in shape, most likely become flat, there might be…..

  12. Or after you take a shower/bath you could split your hair down the middle, then braid it while its damp or wet. leave it like that overnight then undo it in the morning. then finish it off with some hairspray.

  13. i’ve been doing this hairstlye for over 3 months now, as my hair is natually curly it works amazinly all my friends and family think i curl my hair every morning but thats not true! i love this hairstyle the beach look.. also i use a beach salt spray which makes the curls have more texture.. also makes the curls more unique! i recomend this look to anyone..
