If you weren’t blessed with naturally unreal curls, join the club babe. Getting the perfect amount of volume and bounce is no easy feat when it comes to mastering this hairstyle (we can vouch)! And if you’re not a fan of using harmful heat styling tools on your locks, we totally get that too. Luckily though, the latest beauty craze that’s sweeping social media is harmless to your hair and delivers amazing results. Keep reading to get the lowdown on how to get the *best* heatless curls. Oh and, we should also mention that this TikTok Trend Alert requires no stellar dance moves or dangerous acrobatics, we promise!
First thing’s first: prep your locks before moving on to the whole heatless curling part.
For starters, we recommend trying out this TikTok trend on damp hair. You can also opt to spray your hair with a detangling product (or some water!) if your hair is already dry. This will give the curls a better chance to set, and they’ll last longer!
To prep your hair, you can use a hair oil or cream of your choice. Around here, we *love* using organic aloe vera gel to keep our locks shiny, moisturized, and tame away frizz. Additionally, aloe vera can promote hair growth and help make your strands stronger. A little bit of BBE’s aloe vera gel goes a long way, and you’ll be nourishing your hair while you style it! Look at you, you multitasking queen.
Alright gorgeous, time to wrap your strands!
Don’t let the tube-like, fabric contraptions scare you, babe! Wrapping your hair in a piece of fabric or in one of the tubular styling tools below is a lot easier than it sounds (believe us, we’ve done the legwork!) Need a visual? Check out this video below!
You’ll want to wrap your heatless curls away from your face for the best results. This part can take a bit of practice, especially when it comes to determining the size of curl you want. The smaller the wrap, the tighter the curl! To finish, all you need to do is secure the end of your wrapped strands with a silk scrunchie. You can use other types of elastics if you wish, but a silk scrunchie ensures that you won’t get any annoying lines or bumps at the end of your curls.
Once you’re done wrapping and securing, give yourself a pat on the back, girlfriend. Why? Well, because that was seriously the hardest part of this hairstyling method! Yep, for real. Just like that, you have mastered the latest TikTok Trend Alert, the highly coveted heatless curls!
Now, we wait – for those luscious heatless curls to develop!
Grab a snack or hit the hay. If you have the time to, we recommend sleeping in your wrapped hair overnight. We have found that the longer you leave them in, the better the heatless curls are! Mainly because this will really allow the curls to shape properly and will make them hold for longer. And if you started with damp hair, it will likely be dry in the morning and ready to be styled with some finishing touches!
BBE’s sea salt spray hair texturizer is the cherry on top of this heatless hairstyle trend – trust us! Once you’ve unwrapped your hair, simply spray some of the texturizers from the middle of your scalp down. You’ll get amazing volume and a more tousled and natural beachy look! And hey, at the end of the day, isn’t that what we all *really* want?
With results like these, this TikTok hair trend is here to stay.
Va-va-voom. These curls are to die for and weren’t made in a salon (don't worry, we can’t believe it either)! And if you want to fluff them out like this babe did, reach for none other than your ride or die BBE detangling hair brush. Word of caution here: Just be sure to brush through your hair lightly so you don’t end up undoing all of that heatless curl goodness!
BRB, we need to get back to styling our hair now.
