Hair Tutorial: No Heat Curl headband tutorial

no heat curl, headband, tutorial, video, how to
So, my hair is SUPER stick straight. It hates holding a curl… hates it. So, I didn’t think this no heat curl headband thing would actually work… WELL: it did. BUT, with my hair it only lasted for about 3 hours. I only used hair spray… so, maybe if I put some product in my hair before-hand it will last longer? Hmm… Even though this curl didn’t hold all day like I had hoped… it does give my flat hair a ton of volume! Sweet! Perfect for those summer updo’s! I’ll be doing this more often for sure!
I love the No Heat Curl!

In case you’re curious… here’s what my hair looks like naturally (well… it seems a little more fluffy in this photo since I just had a shower. :D). Super duper straight. Always.

Can you do it with wet hair?

November 9, 2014

I have almost waist long hair and I do this almost nightly. I refuse to use heat on myhair more than once a week, and this is the only tutorial I have found that actually works. Instead of using completely wet hair, just barely dampen it with a spray bottle. My hair dries super slow, so if I do it straight out of the shower it is still wet and (as another commented) gets those wet, stringy curls. My only problem has been that sometimes my hair tangles in the band at night and I can't get it out the next morning without help and it conpletely ruins the curls. Any suggestions?

I am so happy to have found your post! I had my first ombré highlights yesterday and tried this last night. Amazing and so easy!! Thank you, thank you!

Looks like a great idea and very easy to do as well. My suggestion would be to do this while your hair is still wet from the shower and to use some sort of styling product specifically designed for adding/holding curl so that it will hold once it is dry and not frizz out. There are many products on the market such as Aveda's "be curly style-prep" or a cheaper alternative is Garnier Fructis "wonder waves". Both of these products are used on wet hair and work wonders for straight hair providing a wonderful curl when dry. There are many more of these types of products on the market, you just have to find the one that works the best for your type of hair. Just an idea for those of you struggling with straight hair and wanting to some flair to your hair! Give this method a try with wet hair and ta good curl enhancing styling product and I think you will have wonderful results. Good luck in your hair styling adventures!

I really hope this works! I used a Topsy Tail to quickly tuck the pieces into the headband, and I also used a wider, mesh headband to see what the results would be. My hair is SO defiant, so I'm crossing all of my fingers and toes that something will come of it, and I wonder if I should spray it while it's in the headband…Thanks so much for this, even if it doesn't work on my hair, it looks fab on yours!

Good luck! Spraying it while it's in the headband can make it harder to take out, but it does work for some people. :)

I am a stay at home mom (no excuses…i know)……and my hair looks like crap most of the time. I ALWAYS have it in a ponytail. It takes 30 minutes to blow dry my hair cause i have so much of it. It is think, and frizzy, wavy. When I do fix my hair by blow drying and then straightening or curling, my hair is beautiful…but that takes an hour to do…..SO……I am going to buy frizz-ease….and maybe a holding gel and i am going to try this. I might try the double headbands since i have so much hair. I might even try this with my 5 year old daughter. Excited!

Good luck! I hope it works so well for you!

I am SO jealous of your straight hair!! My hair is naturally curly but not like nice curly where I can just wake up and look nice (my sisters is like that) mine is more curls-100-different ways and mostly just looks puffy and gross so I am going to try this to see if it would make my natural curls look nicer! When I want to look nice I flat iron my hair but it takes 1+ hours so workday mornings it is a no-go which means my hair is usually up in a boring ponytail.
