How to Curl Straight Hair

You may have seen all the amazing curls on our Instagram Page from our amazing healthy, curly community. well...this one is especially for our customers without naturally curly hair or those wanting to change their curl pattern.

Ditch the heat, you don’t need to cause damage to your locks to create the perfect curls! We know how hard it is to resist the irons when you’re getting ready and that’s why we’re here to show you 5 different tried and tested methods of curling your hair without using heat!

 

NOTE : For all methods, always finish it off with a few sprays of our CurlyEllie Moisturising Detangling spray  for glossy, shiny, frizz free and most importantly........ natural looking CurlyEllie curls.

 1. TWIST IT UP

How to Curl Straight Hair with no Heat

Top Tip :  This method works best on DAMP hair (not wet hair) so either leave your hair to dry about half way after a shower or dampen dry hair with our CurlyEllie Moisturising Detangling spray.

Step 1: Prepare your hair.

Comb/Brush your hair through to get rid of any knots or tangles. Gently massage a good amount of our CurlyEllie Curl Defining Leave-In Conditioner on your hair. This will help hold the curls.

Step 2: Section your hair.

Separate your hair into however many sections you like. How many sections you need depends on how much hair you have and whether you want tight curls or loose curls. Less sections means looser curls and if you have more hair you’ll need more sections for tighter curls.

 

Step 3: TWIST

TwistTake each section and separate them into two then wrap the two parts around each other to create a twist. The more tightly you twist, the tighter your curl, and vice versa. Twist as far as you can down the hair, and secure the end with a small rubber band. Pull your twist up and pin to the top of your head, so that it stays tightly twisted and secure.

Step 4:

Sleep with your twists

Step 5: Unravel the curls

Before you remove your hair ties, gently press each twist with your fingertips to ensure they are completely dry. If they are, you can begin untwisting them. Take out your hair tie and use your fingers to gently unravel the twist. Do not brush your hair, as it will create extreme frizziness.

Step 6: Enjoy your new curls!

4. Rollers

Top Tip : No preparation is needed for rollers as they work best on dry hair! Go straight into sectioning the hair into several sections depending on how much head space you have and how lose you’d like your curls. Remember you can buy bigger or smaller rollers for different sized curls.

 

Step 1:

Place a roller at the bottom of a sectioned piece of hair and wrap the hair around it while rolling it up to the root. Continue this process with each section until all the hair is in rollers

Step 2:

Go about your day or sleep with them in. (Some people find it hard to sleep in rollers).

 

 

 

 

5. Natural waves with braids.

Top Tip:  This style is best done with wet hair, so shower first using CurlyEllie Shampoo and Nourishing Conditioner and towel dry your hair before beginning the braids. Gently massage a good amount of our CurlyEllie Curl Defining Leave-In Conditioner on your hair. This will help hold the curls.

Step 1:

Section your hair into as many parts as you wish, the less sections the looser the waves.

Step 2:

Take a section and separate it into 3 parts, take one of the outer parts and wrap it round the middle part, then take the other outer part and wrap that around the middle, continue to do so until a braid is formed.

Step 3:

Tie the braid at the bottom with a hair tie or band to secure the plaits.

Step 4:

Keep the hair in until it is completely try then take out the braids and unravel the hair.

 

Enjoy your new waves!
