Having curly hair usually means using a lot of products and heat to keep the hair in good condition. How to style curly hair without damaging your hair? Use the special hair styling techniques that don’t require heat.
Don’t erase your beautiful curls by straightening them. Keep your curls intact and healthy with these several styling tips without heat.
1. Use Diffuser when Drying the Hair
Sometimes, you need to use a little heat for quick drying. The key is to keep the heat low and use a diffuser. Avoid touching your curls with direct heat. Use your hand to “spread” your strands during the drying process. It will keep your natural hairstyle textured and well-defined.
Avoid overapplying mousse when your curls start lagging. Make them fresh again by spraying volumizing salt spray. A product such as Balmain Texturizing Spray will keep your curls fresh. You can apply the spray on wet or dry hair.
When you go to a salon, ask the stylist to “feather” the ends of your curly hair. The concept is like “scraping” the end of a ribbon, which results in a frayed, wider edge. Your stylist can achieve the same result using scissors or razors, resulting in more voluminous hair.
This technique is suitable for mid-length and long curly hair. Curl-defining cream creates more visible curls, but not weighing your strands down. Serum oil will make long hair look heavy, which is not a good option if you want to let your hair free.
If you want to have more visible curls for the evening without heat, use cold rollers. You need to keep them in your hair for several hours. Start with slightly damp, untangled hair, without any serum or mousse addition. Use a wide-toothed comb to untangle your hair before applying the rolls.
