    Wash and condition your hair as usual. Gently comb out any tangles. Pat your hair dry with a towel. Allow your hair to dry until it is just damp.[1]

    2

    Braid damp hair into two pigtails. Part your hair down the middle and braid the two sections tightly, then fasten the ends with a hair tie or rubber band.
    • For a more natural look, use your fingers to gently pull the braids apart, loosening them slightly.
    • For looser-looking waves, try using one single braid down the back rather than braiding two parts.
    • For tighter curls, separate your hair into three or four sections and braid each one. For thick hair, you may need to separate your hair into more than four sections.

    3

    Let your hair dry. Wait several hours or go to bed with your hair in braids to allow the waves to set in.[2]

  4. Image titled Curl Your Hair Without Heat Step 12

    4

    Loosen the braids. When your hair is dry or in the morning, remove the rubber bands and unbraid your hair. Gently run your fingers through your hair to create natural-looking waves.[3]

Method 2 Creating Roller Curls

  1. Image titled Curl Your Hair Without Heat Step 20

    1

    Get rollers. You can buy them at any beauty shop or from any dollar store. Depending on the length of your hair, big rollers will create big and lengthy curls while small ones will create small and short curls.

  2. Image titled Curl Your Hair Without Heat Step 21

    2

    Dry your hair. After shampooing and conditioning of the hair, dry with a towel. Blot your hair, don’t rub it. Wait until your hair is damp to start curling.

  3. Image titled Curl Your Hair Without Heat Step 22

    3

    Comb your hair. Make sure to comb your hair thoroughly. Check to be sure there aren't any tangles before you begin.[4]
  4. Image titled Curl Your Hair Without Heat Step 23

    4

    Section off a small a small section of your hair. Roll the section up in one of the rollers. Pin or attach the roller in place according the manufacturer's instructions.[5]
  5. Image titled Curl Your Hair Without Heat Step 24

    5

    Continue rolling your hair. Keep sectioning and rolling your hair until your head is covered with rollers.[6]
  6. Image titled Curl Your Hair Without Heat Step 25

    6

    Wait for the curls to set. Leave the rollers as they are for at least four hours. Leaving them in overnight is even better.[7]

  7. Image titled Curl Your Hair Without Heat Step 26

    7

    Remove the rollers. Carefully take out the rollers when your hair is completely dry. You should have amazing, good quality curls.[8]

Method 3 Using a T-Shirt for Tight Curls

  1. Image titled Curl Your Hair Without Heat Step 27

    1

    Wash and condition your hair as usual. Gently comb out any tangles, then blot your hair dry with a soft towel. Let your hair dry until it is damp. Do not apply serum or leave-in conditioner.
  2. Image titled Curl Your Hair Without Heat Step 28

    2

    Cut a t-shirt into long strips. Start at the neck and use a scissors to cut all the way down to the hem. Continue until you've made as many strips as possible from the body of the t-shirt.[9] Discard the sleeves, since they're too short to make long hair strips.
    • Make the strips as wide as you want your curls to be. For tiny curls, make them 1 inch (2.5 centimeters) wide; for bigger, looser curls, make them up to 3 inches (7.6 centimeters) wide.
    • If you don't have an old t-shirt, you can use long socks, dish towels, other items of clothing, and even paper bags. Just make sure the length of the strips is a couple of inches longer than your hair.
  3. Image titled Curl Your Hair Without Heat Step 29

    3

    Roll your hair. Use a comb to separate a small section of your hair from the rest. Line up the bottom of a t-shirt strip with the end of your hair. Roll your hair up toward your roots, keeping the t-shirt strip in place the whole time. When you've rolled your hair and the strip up to your scalp, tie the ends of the strip to hold the rolled hair in place.[10]
    • If you only want to curl the ends of your hair, stop rolling halfway up your head and tie the strips at the place where you want the curls to stop.
    • Roll your hair under, rather than up, for curls that curve toward your neck rather than curls that bounce outward.
    • Secure your hair with a hair clip or bobby pin.
  4. Image titled Curl Your Hair Without Heat Step 30

    4

    Let your hair dry. Wait several hours or go to bed with your hair rolled into strips. When your hair is completely dry, untie the strips and loosen your hair.[11] Do this gently if you want tight curls. For looser curls, run a wide-toothed comb through your hair to separate the curls into waves.

Method 4 Using a Sock Bun for Voluminous Waves

  1. Image titled Curl Your Hair Without Heat Step 31

    1

    Prepare the sock. Grab any (make sure it's pretty long). Cut the toe part off of a clean tube sock (about 1 1/2 inches or 4 cm). Roll the sock into a donut shape.[12]
  2. Image titled Curl Your Hair Without Heat Step 32

    2

    Pull back your hair. Start with dry hair for this method. Pull it back in a ponytail at the top of your head, then fasten it with a hair tie. Spray your ponytail lightly with water to help set the waves.

  3. Image titled Curl Your Hair Without Heat Step 33

    3

    Position the sock. Hold the end of your ponytail and place it through the hole in the sock. Wrap sections of hair over the outer surface of the sock donut and tuck the ends securely underneath it. Continue rolling the sock down your ponytail toward your head, keeping hair tucked underneath it. The bun should stay securely in place once it reaches your head.[13]
  4. Image titled Curl Your Hair Without Heat Step 34

    4

    Leave the bun in overnight. Remove the sock and hair tie after 6 to 8 hours. Gently run your hands through your hair to release the waves.[14]
  5. Image titled Curl Your Hair Without Heat Step 35

    5

    Check your results. Your hair should now be in big waves. Use a little hairspray to set the waves if desired.

Method 5 Using a Headband for Vintage Curls

  1. Image titled Curl Your Hair Without Heat Step 7

    1

    Wash and condition your hair as usual. If you've already washed it recently, you can simply get it wet. Blot it dry with a towel and let it air dry the rest of the way. Make sure that your hair is completely dry before you begin.

  2. 2

    Brush out your hair. Brush or comb through your hair well. Make sure that there are no tangles in your hair at all.

  3. Image titled Curl Your Hair Without Heat Step 8

    3

    Wrap your hair around a headband. Choose a soft elastic headband, the type that wraps all the way around your head to keep your hair out of your face. Working in sections, wrap your hair around the headband and use hairpins to pin the ends in place as you go. Continue until all of your hair has been wrapped around the headband.[15]
    • You can also wrap you hair around the bottom part of the headband only.
  4. Image titled Curl Your Hair Without Heat Step 10

    4

    Remove the headband and shake out your curls. Unpin each section of your hair and let the curls down. Continue until your hair is completely loose.[16] Keep your sweet, vintage curls in place by scrunching them with a dollop of mousse and spraying your hair lightly with hairspray.

Method 6 Creating Waves With Side Buns

  1. Image titled Curl Your Hair Without Heat Step 18

    1

    Wet your hair with water. No need to wash thoroughly unless it's dirty.

  2. Image titled Curl Your Hair Without Heat Step 19

    2

    Brush your hair thoroughly.

  3. Image titled Curl Your Hair Without Heat Step 20

    3

    Separate your hair in two sections. Twist each section tightly.

  4. Image titled Curl Your Hair Without Heat Step 21

    4

    Turn the twists into side buns.

  5. Image titled Curl Your Hair Without Heat Step 22

    5

    Leave in place during sleep. Let them dry overnight.

  6. Image titled Curl Your Hair Without Heat Step 23

    6

    Open the buns in the morning. You'll have light waves!

Method 7 Creating Twist Curls

  1. Image titled Curl Your Hair Without Heat Step 31

    1

    Start with dry hair. If you have just washed you hair, then towel dry your hair and let it air dry.[17]

  2. Image titled Curl Your Hair Without Heat Step 32

    2

    Comb and part your hair. Separate the two sides.

  3. Image titled Curl Your Hair Without Heat Step 33

    3

    Twist one half of your hair until it is tightly twisted. Use a small clip to pin the twist on top of your head. If you don't have pins, hair ties may work. Repeat to the same side.
    • You can also tuck the twist into a wraparound cloth headband to secure it.[18]
  4. Image titled Curl Your Hair Without Heat Step 34

    4

    Wait for your hair to dry. This will take anywhere between 4 to 6 hours, or even overnight.

  5. Image titled Curl Your Hair Without Heat Step 35

    5

    Let your hair down. Remove the clips and/or headband and shake out your curls.[19] Enjoy your messy, spiral curls.

Method 8 Getting Bobby-Pinned Curls

  1. 1

    Wash your hair or take a shower. Then you want to let the hair dry most of the way. However, it has to be damp for the curls to set.[20]

  2. 2

    Brush your hair. Once your hair is mostly dry, brush or comb it through. You will need perfectly brushed or combed hair for the curls to be smooth.

  3. 3

    Separate your hair into two sections. There should be a huge section at the top, and a teeny one at the bottom. You can do this with your fingers or with a comb.

  4. 4

    Use your finger to create curls. Make your first curl by taking a section of your hair and wrapping it around your finger. Then, secure the curl against your scalp with a clip or bobby pin.[21]
    • Continue to make curls until all of your hair is pinned in curls against your scalp.
  5. 5

    Leave the pins in until your hair is dry. You can apply heat to speed up this process or just wait for your hair to air dry. When your hair is dry, remove the clips or pins and allow your curls to unfurl.[22]
    • You can also run your fingers through them to fan them out, but do not brush them.
    • Set the look with a little hairspray if desired.

    Use a thickening spray before you curl your hair and don't touch the curls until they have cooled. Apply a generous amount of hair spray to keep the curl longer.

  • How can I have my hair curly and flat (my hair is crazy).

    Put leave-in conditioner in when it is wet. Then use hairspray after you get the curls; you don't want it to frizz up during the day.

Tips

  • Avoid brushing your hair after styling. This will separate the curls and leave hair looking messy and frizzy. Instead, gently loosen the curls with your hands for a tousled look.
  • For frizzy hair, apply an anti-frizz serum to hair prior to styling.

Things You'll Need

  • Bobby pins

  • Wide toothed comb

  • Mousse, hairspray, anti-frizz serum and/or other holding product (optional)

  • A clean tube sock

  • Scissors

  • Extra rubber band (if needed)
