2 Non-Heat Hairstyles♥*

I am often guilty of wearing the same hairstyles all the time. I've recently been trying out different hairstyles, two which require no heat, great news for my hair! Both give a nice result, and are sure to receive lots of compliments!

Hairstyle 1 : The Curls

Majority of people I know who curl their hair use a hair tool. My hair is quite long, and thick, therefore takes AGES to curl but the curls drop super quickly. Everyone's hair is different in how it holds, but this is the method that works for me.

This hairstyle can be done on either damp hair or dry. For me, it works best when my hair is dry. It's easy - all you need are some bendy rollers.

You can find them absolutely everywhere, and are inexpensive too! They're bendy, so roll easily around your hair and are comfortable enough to sleep in. It's hard to explain how to do it without showing, but you can find millions of tutorials on Youtube, just search up bendy rollers tutorial. Once they're in, I spray hairspray over them to keep them in hold.

I find it's best to wear these overnight as that way then, they've been in for numerous hours. Once I'm up in the morning and I'm doing my hair, I simply remove them, by rolling them, and once I'm roller-free, I shake my head upside down to loosen the curls. You could alternatively brush your hair out slightly but I like to keep the curls.

Once I'm happy with how my curls are, I apply some of the Lee Stafford Here Come the Curls Creme*. This can be used on naturally curly hair or hair which has been curled. It gives an extra bounce to the curls and makes them feel smooth. I use a small amount and generously apply throughout the hair. I also spray some hairspray to help the curls stay in.

Hairstyle 2 : Mermaid Waves

The dreaded task of drying hair, sound familiar? I know for a fact I hate this, I don't mind washing my hair but it's the drying part. I've found a simple hairstyle to do instead of drying my hair. 

After I've towel-dried my hair and combed through it, I love using the Lee Stafford Argan Oil Nourishing Miracle Oil*. I apply one to two pumps on my hand for the ends of my hair and it just helps smooth the ends and keep them hydration. It can be used on either wet or dry hair, but it works better with my hair whilst damp.

Next, I part my hair and split it into two sections and do two ordinary pleats (plaits). If you are good enough at hair, you could do a French braid, but I haven't "aced" that yet!

I normally wait until the morning to remove my pleats. Once I do, I run my fingers through my hair before applying the Lee Stafford Beach Babe Sea Salt Spray*. I never understood the point of sea salt sprays but oh my goodness, this adds heaps of volume to my hair! I apply some to my hair, scrunch my hair up, flip my head upside down, spray some and flip my head back up and it makes my hair bigger. It makes my hair look like mermaid locks!

Those are my two non-heat hairstyles. What are your go-to non-heat hairstyles?

  7. I have naturally curly hair..bane of my life!!! i was forever trying to straighten it which would take me hours!! so now i have my hair blow dried at a salon once a week. it did take a while for my hair to get used to only being washed once a week, but now it is in better condition than ever because i don't touch it once its been blow dried.

  13. I usually just use sea salt spray to add a bit of extra wavyness to my hair, bt I've never thought of using bendy curlers before. I think I'm going to pick some up as I really hate using heat on my hair!

  21. I have to ask, what's your overall opinion of the Lee Stafford 'Here come the curls'? Is it really beneficial, necessary product? Also does it make your hair look greasy at all?

    1. It's quite nice to add extra bounce, but I do also use hairspray after using it to insure the curls say in and don't drop. I think it probably is more ideal for people with naturally curly hair though. Many products make my hair greasy because I suffer from oily hair, but I haven't found that this makes my hair greasy x

  24. I'm always looking for quick, heatless hairstyles to try! When my hair was longer, I almost always slept in a braid or two, just because I love how wavy my straight hair gets when I take them out in the morning. I have to try those bendy rollers--they look a lot more comfortable to sleep on than velcro ones!

  25. I've never tried bendy rollers, they sound like a great alternative to heat tools whilst avoiding the pain of Velcro! I love the Lee Stafford range, everything's so good!
