You must be wondering if there are other ways to get curls on your hair without using the flat iron or applying heat to your hair. Of course, you can still get curls on your hair without heat, and we are here to teach you ways to do that.

Applying heat often on your hair extensions can sometimes damage the hair though it might interest you to know that raw hair withstands more heat than other hair extensions on the market. This is because it has never been chemically processed like most other hair types.

However, applying less heat on your hair will improve its longevity and equally non-heat curls are also making the trends now, and they look super cool and amazing. You should try them out Sis!

Below we will list 8 easy ways you can get that flippy curls without using any heat. These methods will blow your mind. Just wait for it.

1. Braid your Hair

We think this is the easiest way to achieve those loose curls on your hair without applying any heat. The idea is to braid your hair at night and sleep with it. That way, when you wake up in the morning, all you have to do is undo the braids and apply a smoothing hair oil to tame any frizz. This style is an age-long style many women are familiar with, especially when they loosen their braids.

2. Scrunch Your Hair

If your hair has some texture, this is probably the most simple technique. Spray some sea salt spray on damp hair, from mid-shaft to ends, and scrunch upwards. This method will add more volume to your natural waves.

3. Use Hair Rollers

We are not sending you back to the '80s, but these hair rollers have incredibly helped out our mothers back then and we may as well borrow some of their hair tips for survival. Also, they are the best ways to get those fat bouncy curls on your hair.

To achieve curl with this method, damp your hair then start rolling in sections from the bottom up and secure with a bobby pin. Afterward, allow your hair to dry for 2 to 3 hours or overnight. Voila! Gorgeous waves await you and you can apply hairspray to set them.

4. Use an old T-shirt to make Halo

This another great way to achieve heatless bouncy waves. The trick is to find an old t-shirt twist it into a roller shape and tie the ends together to create a large DIY halo. Then, put the halo on top of your head, wrap pieces of hair around it, and pin the hair in place. Leave your hair in the halo overnight, and in the morning, you can remove all the pins to reveal soft, bouncy curls.

5. Create a sock bun

This is another dope method, and it is very effective. Cut the tip-off of an old sock and roll it up to get a doughnut shape. Alternatively, you can just get a donut hair bun. Wear the sock bun, then pull your ponytail through the hole, and gradually pull sections of your hair through it to create a larger bun. After that, let the bun sit overnight, pull your hair out in the morning to get your gorgeous wavy locks.

6. Use a headband

This method is one we commonly do without even noticing. To get curls using this method, all you need is a good old headband and a texturizing product. Put your headband on over your hair, Coachella-style, and dampen your locks with texture spray.

Subsequently, twist pieces of your hair and tuck them into the headband. This will leave you to a funky updo. Further, add more dampness to that updo and wait a few hours (or overnight) for your hair to completely dry. Then, unwrap your hair and you should have luscious curls.

7. Twist your Hair

Twist is an amazing way to get curls just like braiding. Having a French twist overnight will give you super curls when you loosen them out in the morning. To achieve this, twist sections of your hair over each other and gather the twists into little buns. According to YouTuber Vivian V, you should leave the twist braids in for at least six hours, and then gently pull them out to get the final look. One tip you should have in mind according to Vivian V is; brushing out your hair afterward will actually make your hair frizzier, so simply use your fingertips to detangle your locks.

8. Spoolies

The kind of curls spoolies give is unbelievable, no heat tool can match this sort of curls. Spoolies are a type of hair roller, used in creating heat-free curls. To achieve this look, simply twist and wrap pieces of your hair onto the Spoolies, then bend them to hold your hair.

When you are done rolling your hair onto the Spoolies, you can let your hair airdry overnight, and then take them down when you wake up in the morning. Fun fact about the Spoolie is, the longer you leave your Spoolie on, the tighter your curls will be.

The longer you leave-in the spoolies, the tighter your curls get!

9. Bendy Rollers

Bendy roller is also another quick way to get curls. It is better done at night so in the morning you quickly remove them and flaunt your hair. To achieve curls using this technique is very simple. Just like the regular rollers, though this isn't roundish rather it comes in the form a twistable stick.

Part your hair in tiny bits, and roll it along with the bendy rollers holding your hair firmly with it. Always ensure you twist it in a random direction so you don’t get all your curls going the same way.
