Put down those curling irons, ladies! If you want healthy, luscious hair, using a lot of heat is not the way to go. But don’t worry; you can still have beautiful curls. Here are a few ways to curl or wave your hair without frying it with the blow-dryer, curling iron, or wand.

1. Place a stretchy headband around your forehead, hippie style. Take sections of damp hair and wrap them around the headband and secure. Sleep on it and unwrap in the morning. Give your hair a good shake and voila, big, loose waves!


2. For sexy spiral curls, all you need is an arsenal of bobby pins and some time. Get your hair wet, and then create the curls yourself by folding portions of your hair into your scalp and then pinning them down with bobby pins. You can either wait a couple hours for the look to be ready or sleep with a shower cap on to wake up with beautiful curls.


3. Don’t toss that raggedy old t-shirt! Use it to create beautiful curls. Cut the shirt into strips. The thinner the strips are, the tighter the curls will be. Roll damp hair around each strip then tie the ends so they stay in place. Wait for hair to dry and remove the strips. Work in a little anti-frizz serum and you’re good to go.


4. Some people are absolutely obsessed with soft curlers (or your socks) and swear by them as the perfect way to get flawless curls. There are two ways to use them. At night, wrap hair around curlers, secure, and go to bed. When you wake up unravel and marvel at your voluminous hair. Or, in the morning wrap towel-dried hair in big curlers and go along with your normal morning routine. When your hair is dry, blast with cool air and unwraps.
