We all want in on good hair, but let’s face it, with all the other stuff we have going on in our busy lives, it is hard to put in all the effort day in and day out. Big curls, Tight curls, Coils or Kinks, take three super-effective ways to put your curls on top with these heatless hairstyles.
Finger coils are probably the easiest of all heatless hairstyles. All you will really need is a good curl cream.
Prep: Work a strong hydrating curl cream such as African Pride Shea Miracle Moisture Intense Bouncy Curls Pudding into your hair. Do this with a brush, dividing your hair into small sections and working the product into each section, then brushing it out.
Style: Take individual strands of hair and hold the strand between your index finger and thumb. Use your other hand to coil the strand around the finger.
Finish: The strong hold of your curl cream will help retain and define the curls but once you’re done with each and every strand, take a little more curl cream and scrunch it into your hair. Scrunching also helps lend a slightly more natural look.
Flexi rods give bouncy, soft curls and can be created with or without heat! This heatless hairstyle is here to stay. Here’s how you can make the best use of these extremely reasonable and easily available tools.
Prep: Shampoo and condition as usual, then work in a curl cream depending on what you desire for your look – defined hold or natural movement. Both products will add sheen and leave your hair moisturized.
Style: Pat your hair dry with a towel; psst…make sure it isn’t soaking wet; then divide your hair into bigger sections, depending on how thick you want your curls to be. Begin coiling sections of your hair around the flexi rod. Bend the ends of the rods to secure it in place.
Finish: Unwind the rods and open up your shapely curls using your fingers. Also, learn how to get sleek hairstyles without heat.
Twistie curls are similar to finger coils but this heatless hairstyle involves a little bit more technique. Here’s how to get the look.
Prep: Dampen your hair using a water spray; that’s if you want to avoid a full shampoo routine. This style works best on damp hair. Now avoiding your scalp, apply some Dr.Miracle’s Gro Oil on to your hair.
Style: Dip your finger in your favourite curl cream and begin twisting small sections of your hair; Start from the root, twisting all the way to the bottom.
Finish: Open up after a few hours; maybe catch up on some beauty sleep with a silk scarf wrapped around your head for best results. You are curl-ready to Twist and Shout!
