The Ultimate Guide To Getting Heat Free Curls And Waves

Want stunning wavy hair without all that heat damage? These eight tutorials are your ultimate guide to getting heat free curls and waves.

We all love gorgeous curly hair (#mermaidhairdontcare), but those of us who need a little more help shaping our strands sometimes ruin our lovely locks with excessive heat when trying to achieve the perfect wavy look. Here are eight methods of heat free curls and waves for you to try, for stunningly shaped strands minus the heat damage.

1. Heatless Wavy Hair

In this tutorial, Vivian V shows you how to get overnight heatless waves with twist braids. Done on slightly damp hair, twist braids involve weaving twisted strands of hair into a twisted braid for pretty, easy, heatless waves. Once she twists all the strands into her braid, Vivian twirls her hair into two buns and goes to bed, before gently unfurling her hair and spraying with hairspray in the morning. Try this method on long hair for quick and easy waves that don’t require any extra equipment.


2. Easy Curlformers on Natural Hair

NaturallyChea demonstrates how to install both spiral and barrel Curlformers in natural hair for tight, uniform, heat free curls. Curlformers are “the safest and best quality hair curler in the world. From loose waves to va va volume, Curlformers will help you achieve the look you desire”. Try NaturallyChea’s Curlformer tutorial if you’re willing to spend a few dollars and a bit of time perfecting your heat free curls.

3. Heat Free Curls with Socks

ynotkeeb begins: “this video has been bought to you by your mismatched socks sitting at the bottom of your drawer”. That’s right, this Youtuber rolls her hair with (clean) socks for a healthy heat free ‘do. This method will work best on longer hair, and requires thick, stretchy socks for those stunning heatless curls.

4. Easy Heatless Curls

gulz_Beauty transforms her long, luscious locks into mermaid waves by separating her damp hair into four sections and braiding each. This method uses only one product and two hair ties to create silky, long-lasting waves. Best done on thick hair that can be left to dry overnight.


5. Overnight Heatless Waves for Short Hair

This tutorial is great for short haired girls who often feel left behind by heat free curly hair tutorials. Miaa Tyler uses a similar method to Vivian V’s tutorial, but customises it to work with short hair. Miaa starts with dry hair that she sprays down with water, which is a great tip for those who want heat free curls without having to jump in the shower.

6. Heatless Curls with a Headband

Another Vivian V tutorial, this Youtuber tries a different method for damage free curls. Using a headband to wrap her hair into a waved pattern, Vivian stresses the importance of gently removing the style once it’s dry to retain shape. This method works best for those with finer hair that will hold overnight with minimal restraint.


7. Ultra Defined No Heat Curls in 1 Hour

TheChicNatural shows you how to do super quick, heat free curls in this tutorial. She uses mousse on dry hair and twists in Flexi Rods, before sitting in front of a fan to dry the mousse for the ultimate heat free method. To maintain her hair overnight, TheChicNatural pulls a couple of curls at a time into a Flexi Rod and throws a bonnet over the top to hold them together. Try this tutorial if you need super quick, ultra-defined bouncy curls that are easy to maintain on day two.

8. Sleep-In Ponytail Beach Waves

Shonagh Scott does use a hairdryer in this video to avoid damp morning hair, but you can work it without heat on slightly damp hair. She flips her head over to create a single three-strand braid minus the kink you would usually get from pulling your damp hair into a ponytail. Try this for a super easy beachy wave.
