Are you dreaming of waking up with beautiful, bouncy curls without the damage of heat styling? Heatless curls are your answer! This method is not only gentle on your hair but works wonderfully on hair extensions and wigs as well. Let's dive into how you can achieve these beautiful curls with ease, at home.
Choose your method.
Start with clean, slightly damp hair. If you have dry hair, apply a light leave-in conditioner or a curl-enhancing mousse to keep the curls smooth and defined. Remember, too much product can weigh down your hair, so use sparingly.
Braids for Beach Waves:
- Start with damp hair for more defined waves.
- Divide your hair into multiple sections. The number of braids can vary – more braids equal tighter waves, and fewer braids result in looser waves.
- Braid each section and secure the ends with soft hair ties to prevent breakage.

Tips: For an extra touch of texture, you can braid your hair in different styles like French braids or fishtail braids. And you can also add a curly ponytail on top for extra volume.
Buns for Soft Voluminous Waves:
This method works best on damp hair but can also be done on dry hair for softer waves:
- Gather your hair into a high ponytail and twist it into a bun.
- Secure the bun loosely with bobby pins or a soft hair tie. Avoid anything too tight to prevent creases.
- For more volume, try dividing your hair into two buns on each side of your head.

- Place a soft headband around your head, like a crown.
- Take small sections of hair and wrap them around the headband, adding more hair as you move around your head.
- To ensure even curls, try to keep the sections of hair similar in size as you wrap them around the headband.

Hair Rollers for Defined Curls:
This method is best used on damp hair to set the curls well.
- First, section your hair and wrap each section around a roller, starting from the ends to the roots.
- Secure the rollers in place, then add a comfortable hair cap and leave them in overnight.
This technique is also effective for styling wigs without any heat. Simply apply rollers to a slightly damp wig, then leave it on a wig stand overnight with the rollers in place.
Tips: The size of the rollers will determine the size of your curls – use smaller rollers for tighter curls and larger ones for looser curls. If you find this method uncomfortable to sleep in, even with a hair cap, consider doing it during the day instead.
Unveil the curls.
Whatever heatless way you picked to curl your hair, it's time to see the results in the morning after your sleep! If you made braids or a bun, gently use your fingers to relax the curls. If you put in rollers or a headband, remove them slowly to check out your lovely curls!
Add heatless curls to your hair extensions.
It’s important to note that you shouldn’t sleep with clip-in hair extensions, as it can cause damage to both the extensions and your natural hair. Instead, remove the extensions and gently brush them out. After that, use the headband curling method on the extensions.
Once your hair and the extensions are both curled, you can clip the extensions back into your hair.
This method works well with tape-in hair extensions too. While you have them in, you can easily style your hair using the headband curling technique I mentioned earlier, allowing you to achieve beautiful curls simultaneously.
Heatless curls are a simple, damage-free way to add some fun and elegance to your hairstyle. Try it out tonight and wake up to gorgeous, healthy curls tomorrow!
