How to Get Heatless Curls for Long Hair

Our long haired curling technique comes to us from Vivian V. She’s been using this method for years to get stylish no heat curls for her luscious long hair. With just a few minutes of work, you can copy this look and enjoy beautiful, heatless waves.

1. To get heatless wavy hair, start with slightly damp hair. You can either mist it or let it slightly air dry after a shower. Just make sure that your hair isn’t too wet or it won’t have enough time to dry and curl.

2. Separate your hair right down the middle, making two sections. Start making a twist braid on one side. To do this, take the top layer of your hair and split it in half.

3. Twist one half over the other. Repeat to secure the foundation of the braid. Before making the next twist, grab another section of hair and add it to the braid, similar to how you would add to a French braid. Repeat this process until you reach the base of your neck.

4. Once you reach the base of your neck, it’s best to start putting your remaining hair in a bun. Twist your hair around your finger to keep it tight and then form a bun at the bottom of the twist braid.

Make sure that this part is very tight so that it won’t come out while you sleep or go about your day. Once all the hair is twisted and placed in a bun, secure it with a hair tie.

5. Repeat on the other side. When complete, all of your hair should be twisted, either in the braid or in a bun.

6. This is the longest step-the wait! It usually takes at least six hours for your hair to completely dry. If you take it out before it’s dry, the curls won’t stay.

You can either put your hair up at night and sleep while your hair dries or put it up early in the morning so that it’s ready for a night out on the town. Always make sure that you have enough time for your hair to dry.

7. When you’re ready to take out your twist braids, take out the hair ties very gently. Slowly allow your hair to fall out of the buns and guide it as it untwists. Gently separate the curls with your fingers.

You do not want to run a manual brush or an eletric hair straightening brush through your hair. It will get frizzy and most of the curls could come out. Once your curls are separated to your liking, give them a quick spray with some hair spray and flip it back and forth a few times for added volume.

5. Keep the sections higher up on your head to get the most curls and make it comfortable if you are sleeping on the buns and achieve heatless curls overnight.

If you are going to sleep, you can place a silk stocking over your hair to protect the buns and add another level of comfort. The buns will need to stay in place for several hours so it is recommended to sleep while the curls set.

6. In the morning, start removing the hair ties gently to reveal your heatless curls for natural hair. It helps to have a little oil on your hands (like coconut or argon) to help avoid frizz.

After removing all of the hair ties, start to gently separate the curls into the style you’re after. You might want to move your parting to one side for a large increase in volume.
