How to Get Wavy Hair Overnight

How to Get Curly Hair Without Heated Tools

Here's an excerpt of a tip-heavy post on getting no-heat waves from OnSugar blogger lesleykat:


Achieving no-heat waves is super simple:

  1. After you shampoo and condition your hair, use a towel to wring out as much of the excess water as you can.
  2. Apply a frizz serum or styling cream to seal the moisture into the hair. I like to use Neutrogena Triple Moisture Serum (available at most drugstores), but any styling product you like will do.
  3. Comb it through with a medium-wide tooth comb.
  4. Braid your hair and secure with an elastic hair band. If you can French braid, even better!
  5. Slap a clean towel on your pillow and go to bed. Be sure to use a clean towel. You don't want your face to be all over a dirty towel as you sleep.
  6. When you wake up: Undo the braid and separate hair pieces with your fingers. Do not use a brush or comb.
  7. Work a little pomade or texturizing styling product from about halfway down the length through the ends. I like Devachan Set Me Up! (I think they've changed the formula and renamed it Set Up and Above. Available at Ricky's/Ulta/Devachan.)
  8. Spritz a little medium-hold hairspray just to keep everything in place.
  9. If you're prone to major frizz, you can add a little bit of a smoothing product, but I think a little frizz with waves looks natural. Unless you're going to a photo shoot, who cares about a touch of frizz?
