Hair Styles That Don’t Use Heat

Are there many hair styles that don’t use heat?

There are many hair styles that don’t use heat that you can play around with. Using heat on your gorgeous locks seriously damages your hair, but what are you supposed to do about your hair if you can’t use a blow-dryer or curlers to tame it into perfection? There are so many tools out there that don’t use heat to style hair, but you don’t even need to purchase a bunch of tools to style your hair beautifully! Just take a look at these top hair styles you can do without using heat.

5 Hairtsyles that don’t use Heat

1: Braids

There are many different things you can do with braids. You can wait for your hair to dry before you braid it, but this tends to lead to frizz. Your best bet is to moisturize your hair so it’s shiny, and then put it into a braid. Some ideas for braids include:

French Braids: French braids are relatively simple once you get the hang of them, but you don’t need to do it right down the back. Another way to wear French braids is to do one either side of your head like French braid pigtails, or you can French braid around your head to make a crown.

Braid Bun: Make a ponytail around the center of the back of your head and make a braid in a circle. Attach the braid periodically with bobby pins.

Pig-Tail Braids: Separate your hair in the back down the center and braid it down your front. This is a very quick fix to not having a ‘do in the morning.

2: No-Heat Curls

Curling your hair doesn’t have to be damaging! You can create waves, medium curls, or tight curls right out of the shower.

Wavy Curls: If you have naturally curly hair, you can always apply a bit of coconut oil or olive oil to your tresses, pin them up loosely with some bobby pins, and let them dry that way. You can also braid your hair the night before, after your nightly shower, and let it dry overnight that way. Add a spritz of gloss spray in the morning and take out the braids.

Medium Curls: If you want some of those large, beautiful curls but you don’t want to use heat to get them, try out this idea. After you shower, loosely pull your hair up into a bun on top of your head. The bun makes your hair wavy, and pulling it up to the top of your head gives your hair volume. Release it when it is dry and off you go!

Tight Curls: After you get out of the shower, take some small curlers and wrap your hair around them without any heat. If your hair doesn’t like to behave, you can use a little mouse before you put your hair up in the curlers. Let your hair in the curlers until it’s dry, and then let it out. You’ve got tight curls!

3: Crazy Buns

Unless you’re going for curly hair, you might want to let your hair dry before you put it up into a bun. Otherwise, your hair is going to be wet all day in the center of your bun, and some might find this uncomfortable.

Triple Bun: Instead of the usual bun, split your hair into three parts horizontally or vertically across the back of your head. Twist your hair into three buns and pin them back.

Embrace the Frizz Bun: If you just can’t seem to get rid of that frizz in your hair, then stop trying to tame it! Embrace it! All you have to do is pull your hair up to the top of your head using a brush, and then twist it before you twirl it around into a bun. Let the frizz be!

The Braid and Bun: Use your crazy braiding and bun-making skills to make this really awesome duo. Separate your hair in half vertically and pin up the top. Take the bottom half and twist it into a bun on the back of your head. Split the top half of your hair down the middle and braid each side. Pull both braids back and wrap them around the braid, pinning them as you go.

4: Ponytails

Ponytails don’t have to be just a boring pull back. If you are suffering from frizz, you might want to try out something other than pulling your hair back and letting it be a puff ball on the back of your head.

Braided Ponytail: Pull your hair back up to the top of your head and braid it. You can choose to make one large braid, or you can make a bunch of little braids to make it look like faux cornrows.

Puffy Ponytail: Another way you can easily embrace frizzy hair is to make a puffy ponytail. Pull your hair back, close to the top and about three inches down, puff your hair up a bit and put in a hair tie. Keep going like this until you reach the bottom. This is a good way to tie your hair back with style and still keep it out of the way.

Lopsided Twist Ponytail: If you know how to make a twist ponytail on the back of your head, why not pull your hair down to your left or right and make one on the side?

5: Half Top Styles

Another excellent idea is to pull your hair up into a half top, but there are different styles you can do rather than pulling it back into a ponytail.

Braids: Separate your hair into halves vertically. Separate the top half down the center and braid both halves as you move them toward the back of your head. You can choose to leave the leftover ends unbraided, or braid them, too.

Small Bun: Pull the top half back, twist it into a bun, and pin it back.

You can still have beautiful, stylish hair without having to style your hair with heat.
