How To Curl Your Hair Without Heat and Chemicals?

4 Easy ways to curl hair extensions without heat and chemicals

Curly hair can add more volume and lightness to your hair. Curling your hair with a curling iron or using chemicals may inevitably damage it. Here in this post, we are happy to share with you some easy ways to achieve curls without heat and chemicals:

Method 1: Braid your hair to create curls

You can get natural wavy hair by braiding your hair. It's the easiest to achieve soft wavy hair. Here are some steps for you to follow:

Step 1: Begin by dividing your hair into small sections. You will want to braid each section individually to ensure that each curl is defined.

Step 2: Take one of the small sections and divide it into three equal strands.

Step 3: Begin braiding the hair, pulling the strands tightly together as you braid.

Step 4: Once you reach the end of the strand, secure the braid with a small elastic band.

Step 5: Repeat this process with the remaining sections of hair.

Step 6: Once all of your hair is braided, you can either let it air dry or use a hair dryer to dry it faster.

Step 7: Once your hair is dry, gently uncoil the braids to reveal your curls.

Step 8: Use a light hair spray or hair oil to help define and hold the curls in place. Finally, style your curls as desired, and enjoy your beautiful, naturally curly hair!

Method 2: Braid your hair into Bantu knots

Bantu knots are a popular hairstyle that involves twisting and knotting sections of hair, typically starting at the roots. To create curls with Bantu knots, follow these steps:

Step 1: Decide on the size of the knots you want to create. For larger knots, you will need to use larger sections of hair. For more minorr knots, use smaller sections.

Step 2: Next, separate your hair into sections using a comb or your fingers. If you are using hair extensions, make sure to attach them to your natural hair before dividing them into sections.

Step 3: Take a section of hair and apply a leave-in conditioner or curl-defining cream to it. This will help moisturize the hair and give it a smooth, defined look.

Step 4: Twist the section of hair until it begins to curl on itself. You can also use a curling iron or rollers to add curl to the hair if desired.

Step 5: Once the hair is twisted and curled, wrap it around itself to form a knot. Secure the knot in place with bobby pins or a hair tie.

Step 6: Repeat the process with the remaining sections of hair until you have created the desired number of Bantu knots.

Step 7: Allow the knots to dry completely. Leave the knots overnight, then carefully unravel them in the morning to reveal the curls.

Method 3: Rag curls

Rag curls are a simple and inexpensive way to give your hair curls without using heat. Here's how to do them:

Step 1: Start with damp hair that has been brushed or combed to remove tangles.

Step 2: Divide your hair into sections. The smaller the sections, the tighter the curls will be.

Step 3: Cut several strips of old t-shirts or fabric rags into long, thin strips. The size of the strips will depend on the thickness of your hair.

Step 4: Starting at the roots, wrap a section of your hair around a strip of fabric and tie it in place. Repeat this process for each section of hair.

Step 5: Let your hair air dry. This may take several hours or overnight, depending on the thickness of your hair and the humidity of the air.

Step 6: Once your hair is dry, gently remove the fabric strips to reveal your curls. You can scrunch your hair to enhance the curls or use a light hold styling product to help them hold.

Step 7: Style your curls as desired and enjoy your heat-free curls!

Method 4: Flexi rods

Flexi rods are a convenient way to achieve curls without using heat, which can be damaging to the hair. Here's how to use them:

Step 1: Start by washing and drying your hair. It's best to use Flexi rods on clean, dry hair.

Step 2: Divide your hair into sections. The number of sections you create will depend on the size of the rods and the desired size of the curls.

Step 3: Roll a section of hair around a Flexi rod, starting at the ends and rolling towards the scalp. You can use a hair tie or clip to secure the rod in place.

Step 4: Repeat this process with the rest of your hair, making sure to roll each section in the same direction.

Step 5: Leave the Flexi rods in your hair for several hours or overnight. The longer you leave them in, the tighter the curls will be.

Step 6: When you're ready to remove the rods, gently unroll each one and shake out the curls. You can use light hair spray or oil to help set the curls. And now you can style your curls as desired, and enjoy your heatless curls!

It's imperative to note that these methods will not give you the same type of curls that you would get with heat styling or chemical treatments. The curls will be more natural and subtle, but they should last for several days.
