How to style your hair without heat

How to style your hair without heat

Many of us are guilty of over-using heat on our hair whether this be blow drying or excessive use of our trusty straighteners. If you’re looking to cut back on the heat and go for a more au naturale look, we’re here to help! So say bye-bye to split ends and frizz as we show you how to style your hair without heat. 

Lay your edges

Laying your edges is a great way to style curly hair. Not only does it look chic and sophisticated, the creativity is endless making it such a versatile look for any occasion.  

Step 1: To create this look, tie your hair up in your desired style and ensure your edges are dry. Start by adding a touch of moisture with the Camille Rose Naturals Curl Maker Curling Jelly. 

Step 2: Follow this with a styling product. We recommend using the Curlsmith Curl Defining Styling Souffle to help control delicate hairs without stripping them of moisture.  

Step 3: Finally, style with your chosen brush! We love the Baby Hair Brush from Cantu to help you style with ease. If you want to discover more about this style, check out our post on How to lay your edges. 

Create mermaid waves

Mermaid waves are one of the easiest styles you can create without heat! Although it may look tricky, the look all comes down to a simple plait.

Step 1: Start by washing your hair with your desired shampoo and conditioner like normal. Leave your hair until it’s around 70% dry and run your favourite oil through the ends. We recommend the Kérastase Elixir Ultime Rose Hair Oil, this will help keep your waves in place and reduce any unwanted frizz.

Step 2: Next, create a rough plait with all of your hair. This doesn’t need to be perfect and can be any style of plait you want! Once you’re happy, keep this style in overnight and you’ll wake up with stunning mermaid waves!

Step 3: To finish off your look, spritz your waves with the Balmain Hair Texturizing Salt Spray to give it that extra beachy effect.  

Twist it up  

A ponytail is a timeless classic for any hair type so why not give it a twist? This trick is perfect to take your pony from 0-100 in an instant.  

Step 1: Start by sweeping your hair back into a super sleek low ponytail using the SILKE Hair Ties and insert a hair grip into the base.  

Step 2: Take around an inch of hair from your ponytail and begin to wrap it around the base ensuring all of the hair tie is covered. Slide another hair grip onto the end of this section of hair and pull through your ponytail.

Step 3: Tame any flyaways with the Reflections Luminous Smoothing Oil from Wella Professionals and finish with a spritz of the Fudge Professional Skyscraper Hair Spray to create a perfect stylish ponytail!
