Heatless Curls + Perm Rod Set on Relaxed Hair

Wrapping up this #NoHeatChallenge! I turned straight hair into curly hair with no heat at all. This is a great way to add some moisture back into your hair before its time to wash again and the style is so versatile too!


Perm rods are life savers when you're trying to keep heat off of your hair but also achieve a sleek, fresh look! I started on one week old straight, silk wrapped hair and moisturizing and sealing my ends with Miss Jessie's Leave In Condish and some extra virgin coconut oil (check out my moisturize and seal video tutorial here). I then use Shea Moisture's Curl Enhancing Smoothie to soften the hair and mold the curls.

 Perm rods can be purchased at Walmart, Target,  Sally's , and your local beauty supply store.

I part my hair in small sections and remain sure to roll my ends tightly around the perm rod. After curling the hair with the perm rods (full video tutorial here), I let the curls set over night-- no dryer. I took them down in the morning and VOILA! Beautiful heatless curls that can be worn pulled up, pulled back, half up-half down, or just full out and bouncy! 

What other ways can you style your hair without heat??
