You may have forgotten about these with all the up-to-date gadgets. However, they are still great styling tools. Likely, you can pick rollers up at the local drugstore.

If you have long hair, this is one of the best practices to curl your hair without heat and within an hour.
Notice how wavy your hair is without using any heat. You look gorgeous!
Along with the rollers, I thought pin curls were history. However, I was wrong! Pin curls make long lasting wavy hair. It doesn’t matter if you have natural hair, air-dried hair, or red hair, you can pull off pin curls.
Part your locks into sections, of course. Coil the hair til it makes a firm curl. Use a bobby pin or clip to secure. You only have a few only before you can take it down, so apply your makeup while you wait. When you take the pins out, you’ll have a fresh, springy do without using a curling rod or flat iron.
Hopefully, you air dried your hair to eliminate the heat, but in case you didn’t, you’ll need to protect your hair.
For best results, leave in overnight, but you can take the curls down when dry.
Braids are wonderful hairstyles but what happens when you take them down is incredible. They add volume and texture to your hair, and you don’t have to use heat to get curly or wavy hairstyles.
You can braid the hair starting from the root or farther from the scalp. You can make wide parts and braids or small ones. This technique works on short hair as well as long hair. So, if you’re ready, take out your styling gel, rubber bands, and a hair clip.
You can do this with dry hair, so don’t stress if you just washed your hair. Spray hair with a lifter especially if you have thin hair. When that’s dry, put on a headband. If you don’t have one, you can hack it with a long sock.
This style doesn’t need wet hair to complete, but you will need to cut a scarf into about four pieces. Also, you will need to part your hair into four sections. After you have parted and secured them, you will need to tie your hair off close to the roots.
Take the hair and wrap it tightly around the scarf. Keep wrapping until you reach the ends of the hair and roll into a bun. Keep rolling around the bun until the scarf disappears. This will hold the hair in place. After about an hour, remove the pieces of the scarf and finger comb hair into your style.
The experts say that using a terry cloth towel doesn’t do anything to protect your hair. In fact, you should always use a microfiber towel to dry your hair. It will rob your hair of its definition. Always pat or blot your hair to dry it rather than rub your hair.
There’s one thing you should remember when using the microfiber towel, however. Don’t throw it in your dryer but instead, hang out to dry. If you don’t have a microfiber towel, use an old t-shirt.
If you have naturally wavy hair, to begin with, styles to curl your hair will enhance your waves. With that in mind, most of the hairstyles can be done with any hair, but most work best when hair is damp. All of these methods can be done in an hour or less.
We’ve explored many ways in which to curl the hair without using heat, except for one thing. Putting on a wig is the easiest and fastest way I know to get curly hair within an hour or less. I can have long hair, short hair, wavy, curly or straight.
If not a wig, you can use clip-on hair extensions. They are inexpensive, and you can buy more than one color. Add color as desired, and you can even mix and match pieces fitting for the occasion. Better still, you won’t dry out your hair and scalp.
