Satin Curling Rod

This satin curling rod technique took over TikTok when it was discovered. You can purchase this product in a set for $16. The set includes the satin curling rod and something to fasten the hair like scrunchies or hair clips. 

Forming effortless and damage-free curls with this product is very simple. You take the satin curling rod and position it on top of your head, sort of like you would a headband. 

Then, you  take sections of your hair and begin to wrap them around the satin rod, preferably wrapping the hair away from your face. 

Once all of your hair is sectioned and wrapped around the curling rod, you take the scrunchies, hair clips, or whatever hair accessory you like to secure the hair in place around the curing rod. It is recommended to sleep with this positioned on your head to set the curls. Then, in the morning, you will wake up with gorgeous curls!

Velcro Rollers

If you are looking to add some volume to your hair or get a salon-quality blowout look, velcro rollers may be the best heatless curl option for you. Velcro rollers can be used on wet or dry hair, but for the best results, hair should be dampened before applying. 

Velcro rollers come in a variety of different sizes, so you will want to choose the size that will give you the type of curl that you want. All you need to do is section off your hair and start from the bottom of the hair and roll the velcro roller all the way up to your root. What’s great about velcro rollers is that they are also self-gripping, so you won’t have to worry about fastening the rollers in your hair. Then, just wait for your hair to dry or for the curls to set to get the heatless and damage-free curls that you are looking for.

To use these flexible rod rollers, you can start by parting your hair into sections to fit onto the rollers. You can place the rollers anywhere you like in your hair and at any angle by positioning and bending the rods into place. Then, just wait for your curls to set!
