5 No-Heat Hairstyles
By The Fashion Bomb Staff

While I love the things a Sedu can do, there are other ways of styling the hair that are cute and require no heat to do. If you’re a few days past your wash day, try these styles:

1. A slightly spiky pixie.

Simply wrap your hair the night before with a silk or satin head wrap (or similar pillow) to get hair as smooth as possible. When ready to style, unwrap your hair and comb through with a wide tooth comb. Grab a styling agent (like Rene Furterer Styling Wax) and use it to finger comb the hair in your desired style. The finished look should look “unfinished”.

2. A twist out.

Nothing new to natural hair vets, this very popular method of styling is easy to do and yields pretty impressive results on all hair lengths. Simply divide the hair into sections, wet the hair, and add in a styling pomade like Miss Jessie’s Curly Pudding. The bigger the hair, the bigger the sections. Then twist the sections (or braid) paying close attention that the ends are carefully twisted as to avoid frizziness. You can secure the ends with hair pins if needed. Once the hair is dry, carefully undo the twists and finger comb. This method is best done before bed or when you have enough time to allow the hair to air dry.

3. Wavy, beachy hair.

Traditionally a go-to style for summer, this can work for winter as well (a protest for milder weather if you will). Section the hair into parts (the smaller the section, the tighter the way). Then dampen the hair with water and add a spritz of a styling spray like Frederic Fekkai Coiff Oceanique Tousled Wave Spray to help the waves look more pronounced. Once the hair is dry, carefully undo the braids and finger comb. This is another style best done before bed or when you have ample time for air drying.

4. Pin curls.

This type of styling is great for breathing life back into a 3-4 day old blowout. Simply section the hair (the bigger the section, the looser the curl). Roll the hair (the same way you would with rollers) and secure with either bobby pins or duck clips. Take the sections down after about an hour or two and finger comb.

5. Loose bun or updo.

This look is cute with short (grab some cute clips), medium, or long hair whether it’s relaxed or natural. Gently pull the hair back off the face (allow a few loose tendrils to frame the face if desired) and either twist the ends up or down and secure with pins and/or clips. No need to get pageant-perfect hair here, the look should be a little bed head-ish.

  2. sun.kissed says:

    A few of these do’ require heat i.e. wavy beach hair and pin curls.

  3. PanaPrincesa says:

    I have tried all of these and they do not require heat.

  4. Anonymous says:

    pin curls don’t require heat…that’s the whole point of the article. You CAN add heat, if you so choose, but you can do without and the women I know who do the pin curls don’t add heat.

  5. Gna be trying to twist my just past TWA! Thanks for the suggestions :-)

  6. Nicole says:

    Not trying to be a downer but let’s be real all of the pictured styles require heat. Some can possibly be done with out heat but they would not look quite the same as the pictures. In addtion some of the styles may not require heat but at some point they required heat in order to straighten/smooth the hair.

  7. Twist outs are awesome!

  8. dyshaun says:

    LOL @”lets be real!” Sorry that was too funny.

    I have tried all these with no heat (except that pixie) and no relaxer.

    You could use a hooded dryer (for heat) but I dont cause I’m lazy. Good products work wonders. And I get the best twist/braid outs on “old” hair (i.e. 2 days post wash).

    Straighten/smoothing (?), if you mean flyways, is usually handled by 20 mins under a tight scarf and gel for me LOL

    Good article, Danielle.

    Wow, these blush-toned lipshades are knocking me out!

  10. Danielle says:

    Hey guys!

    I still stand firm that these styles mentioned can be done without heat…lol. You’re not going to get them done as quickly without using heat, but it can be done using the methods I explained for each style. The pics are just to illustrate what I mean by the styles mentioned—hard to find pics of celebs on the net of hair styled without heat and I don’t want to use non-celebs pics. When I had relaxed hair if I wasn’t at the salon getting it done, I’d wash and deep condition at home and wet wrap overnight with some Moroccanoil Oil Treatment and my hair would be smooth in the morning.

    Hope you all try it at least once!

  11. Danielle says:

    P.S. Heat isn’t bad with moderation, but if you’ve had your roller set done with a blowout and looking for ways to style the hair in between salon visits, some of the styles mentioned above are great. Even better for natural hair (updos, twistouts).

  12. ladyshawann says:

    I do twist outs with out heat they turn out best if I rock the twist a couple of days befor I take them down.

  13. SadeRunaway says:

    Does anyone know if the twist out can be done with relaxed hair?

  14. LCT says:

    Corinne Bailey Rae always makes me smile. Beautiful, effortless and talented. All these women are beautiful. Black is beautiful!!

  15. hairstyles says:

    That is a nice hair style that is used for the shorts. We can use the short hair style for the short dress. there is a problem for heating the hair. the hair is weeker.

  16. hairstyles says:

    the twist is done be the streight and the curly hairs and the hair will be looking nice it will be moulded in a differnt shape that is nice and we are looking different.

    It’s actually a wonderful plus valuable item of details. Now i’m fulfilled you embraced this convenient facts with us. Make sure you keep us updated like this. Thanks for sharing.

    For style #1) you can silk wrap it for an even slicker look. After it’s completely dry, using a little serum, butter or oil. “wrap” short hair with saran wrap (tightly) and sit under a warm bonnet dryer or blow dryer attachment for 10-15 minutes. Your hair will be silkier without the flat iron and a lot less damaged. Style as usual.
