Heatless hairstyles are often faster, easier, and cause less damage than using your hot tools daily, and are a stepping stone on your journey to healthy-looking hair.
Here is how to limit hair damage with heatless hairstyles:
- Bathrobe Curls
Here is how to get mermaid waves with a heatless hair curling ribbon:
1. Start with damp hair, and apply the styling milk. This hydrating leave-in contains coconut oil and sweet honey to quench your hair, preventing your heatless curls from looking frizzy.
2. Secure the curling ribbon to the center front of your hair with a claw clip.
3. Starting on one side, take a piece of hair from the front of your hairline and wrap it around the ribbon, away from the face. Collect more loose hair on every rotation until you get to the nape of the neck, and then wrap the lengths to the end.
4. Repeat on the other side, and tie the two ends together with a silk scrunchie. You want to make sure it’s comfortable enough to sleep with, and secure enough that the ends of your hair don’t escape overnight!

2. Sleek Style: Slicked Back Bun
To get the heatless slick bun look:
1. Choose whether you want a middle part, side part, or no part.
2. Apply gloss spray from the mid-lengths to the ends of your hair, and brush it through. This gloss spray will work like a treatment while your hair is slicked back to add strength, improve flexibility, protect against humidity, fight frizz and add shine.
3. Use a dense brush, start to slick your hair back. Take your time here – the more passes you make, the smoother each section will be in the final look.
4. Twist the lengths into a bun, and secure it with a hair elastic or scrunchie.
3. Old School Cool – Velcro Hair Rollers
This style will be easier if your hair already has a wave or loose curl to it – super silky or textured hair may not respond as well.
For when you want a little extra volume or bounce:
1. Apply mousse to damp hair.
2. When the hair is 90% dry, start adding the rollers. Split the hair into sections, and start rolling the hair onto velcro rollers away from your face. The size of the roller will determine how tight or loose the final waves are.
3. Wait for the hair to dry completely. This could take anywhere from 20 minutes to a few hours!
4. When it’s dry, carefully unwind the rollers to reveal your voluminous, bouncy curls. Brush it through for extra volume.
