A head of full, bouncy hair makes us feel like we can achieve anything. A good hair day is a good day. Science.

But reaching said effortless waves usually requires lots of effort with heating tools and the risk of uneven curls.


Don't even get us started on the dry, damaged ends after the whole palaver. And who needs that

Fortunately, there are alternative ways to get effortless waves, without the heat and damage.

Here, we list the top five heatless curling products that will change your life.

Heatless Curling Rod Headband

Currently going viral on TikTok is the satin headband rod curling set.

While it's not a new curling technique, the results are blowing everyone away, without using heat or multiple tools.

Simply place the rod on the top of your head and clip it in place, then twist your hair outwards around the rod from the top.

Tie the ends off with the scrunchie and leave in overnight to get bouncy curls for days.

Way too cool

"This product is so amazing I bought one for all the gals in my family!" a happy customer revealed on Amazon.

"Sleep with it overnight (not uncomfortable at all) and your curls will actually last for days.

"So simple, so awesome, so much time saved. Can't recommend enough!"
