Heatless hair styles are great for those who don’t have a lot of time, and/or for women who have damaged hair. As for the latter, blow dryers, curling irons, flat irons, and hot rollers all have great potential to damage your hair, and should not be used every day. Since you don’t want to have a head of frizzy, damaged hair, you should consider using hairstyles that don’t require heat. When styling hair with no heat, you’ll need bobby pins, a spray bottle, water, mousse, hair spray and leave-in conditioner.
Natural hairstyles that don’t require heat can be spiced up by using hair accessories like headbands, barrettes, ribbons or scarves.
The most basic and perhaps most universal hair style that doesn’t require heat is the braid. Braids have stayed classic because they are easy to perfect, and require little product and hair tools. You’ll be able to style wet or dry hair to create an English, French, twist or fishtail braid, thus making braids the ultimate go-to hairstyle for when you’re suffering through a bad hair day.
Braid to Waves
School and work suck up a lot of time because of homework and/or late nights at the office; but that’s no excuse for not doing your hair! When you know that you will have a limited amount of time in the morning, braid your hair the night before to create soft and manageable waves; the trick is to dampen your hair. However, if you get your hair too wet, it will not dry by the morning, and your hair will fall flat and frizz. So mist your hair with water and use a mousse, texturizing spray, or flexible hair spray to apply to your strands before braiding. Sleep with your hair braiding, and in the morning, un-braid your hair to reveal heatless waves and body.
