How To Style Wavy Hair Without Heat?
Styling wavy hair without heat is a great way to maintain the health and integrity of your hair. Whether rocking short hair or having long strands, waves can be an excellent addition to your look. But if you’re not a fan of heat, here are several easy ways to style your hair without using any.
The key is to tame your natural wave/curl and define them with the right styling product. Start with a nourishing conditioner, such as our Miracle Styling Cream, which helps define curls and waves with a bouncy shine and a smooth, silky texture.
If you have wavy hair, it can be hard to find a style that will work for you without resorting to heat tools like curling irons or flat irons. These styling tools can damage your hair if used incorrectly, but you can get the same gorgeous waves without using any heat.
The first step in getting wavy hair without heat is to prepare your hair properly. The best way to do this is by using a volumizing shampoo and conditioner that will give your hair the oomph it needs for bouncy waves. Our lightweight volumizing range is made for fine hair to help you achieve a fresh-from-the-shower look that will leave your locks with natural-looking volume and bounce.
A good quality volumizing shampoo and conditioner will also ensure your tresses feel clean and refreshed, which is especially important for achieving wavy hair. Our volumizing range is infused with Australian Macadamia Nut Oil to help replenish hydration and add shine, meaning you can keep your locks feeling soft and manageable.
Once your hair has been cleansed, dry, and conditioned, spray some sea salt evenly throughout it. This will add grit to your hair, helping it hold the waves you’re creating.
Next, separate your hair into two to three-inch sections and twist and twirl each section of hair into tiny buns. Secure the buns close to your scalp with bobby pins and let them dry for at least six hours.
After your hair has completely dried, remove the buns and spray your hair with a strong hold hairspray to give you a long-lasting hold. Arrojo’s favorite is Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine Hairspray ($4).
Another easy way to get wavy hair without heat is to braid your damp hair while it’s still wet, then let it air dry in the morning. This will give you a wavy style that will be perfect for the day and allow your hair to naturally dry overnight for even more texture and body.
If you want to create a wavy look that will last all day, try creating thick twists with your wavy hair. This is a great way to contrast traditional small twists and give you gorgeous, voluminous curls that are sure to turn heads!
Twists are a great way to style wavy hair without heat. They are easy to create, protect your hair from knots and tangles, and are low maintenance.
To get started:
- Make sure your hair is clean and dry.
- Apply a curl stretch butter or twisting gel and split your hair into quarters.
- Twist each section around the other. This will help them to hold in place and make the style last longer.
You can also add extensions to your twists if you want to make them full and thick. You can add synthetic or colored extension hair to create a more textured look like Senegalese or Marley twists.
The length of time your twists last depends on the texture of your hair, how tightly or loosely you hold them when you twist them, and how well you care for them at nighttime. However, they’ll usually stay fresh for a few weeks with regular moisturizing and a proper nighttime routine.
There are several different twists, but two-strand twists are the easiest and most versatile. They can be done with damp or dry hair and look either tight or loose. You can make them chunky or thin, with lots of twists over your head or just one on each side.
If you’re a woman with a round face, you can try a high twisted bun to keep your braids off your neck and out of the way. This style is flattering on most face shapes and will elevate your overall look.
A great alternative to a messy bun, this half-up style is an elegant and regal hairstyle that will make your wavy locks stand out from the crowd. It’s a classic and chic look that will work for any occasion.
Another popular twist hairstyle is the twist out, which emphasizes the natural volume of your curls. It is a casual and laid-back style that will give you an effortlessly cool appearance.
This look is especially popular for black men with long, textured hair. It’s a fun and stylish way to show off your strands, perfect for adding color to your look.
Wavy hair is one of the most difficult textures to style because it tends to get frizzy when exposed to moisture. But don’t fret — there are many ways to achieve the look without resorting to a hot blow dryer or iron!
The messy bun is one of the best ways to pull off a wavy hairstyle and still look polished. It’s also easy to do and requires a few minutes.
To create this effortless hairstyle, you need a plastic spiral hair tie, bobby pins, and your favorite styling products. You can even use a dry shampoo or texturizing spray to give your style a bit of tousle.
This messy bun looks gorgeous on all hair types, but it’s especially flattering on long, wavy locks. It’s perfect for wearing to the office or a formal event, and it’s a great way to keep your tresses out of your face and off your neck!
When putting your hair into this messy bun, be sure to twist the ends of your hair around the elastic. This will make the hair look looser, an important part of the style.
For thick, wavy locks, you can use a structured hair elastic to keep your curls in place. This is a great option for women with curly hair because it helps to prevent your strands from breaking off and falling out throughout the day.
Another way to keep your hair in place is to clip it with bobby pins at your bun’s top, bottom, and sides. You can also touch up your bun if it loses shape.
If you want to add a pop of color, try coloring the lower half of your wavy hair. This is a great way to show off your unique style and create a dramatic contrast against your natural hair color.
If you have bangs, consider adding them to your wavy hairstyle. This will also add a fun element to your outfit and give you a chic and casual look.
Side Swept Waves
Wavy hair is a classic, versatile style that looks effortlessly chic when tousled and sophisticated when swept sleekly. Whether you have short or long hair, it can easily be styled in several ways without needing heat tools like curling irons and flat irons.
If you’re looking for a more subtle way to pull off this classic look, try using a texturizing spray before styling your hair. Alternatively, you can use a wide-tooth comb to smooth out your waves for a soft, polished finish.
A good quality brush specifically designed for waves and frizz-prone hair is the key to pulling off this look. The best ones are lightweight, snag-free materials that won’t clog your comb and allow easier, tangle-free brushing.
Try applying a leave-in conditioner before stowing away your wavy locks for an even softer texture. Aussie Aussome Volume Conditioner, for example, will make short hair bouncier than a kangaroo and is infused with Australian macadamia nut oil to give it extra hydration.
Once you’ve finished applying your styling product, spritz it with some hairspray for added hold and control. Next, sweep your hair to one side and pin it with bobby pins.
Another way to get a polished side-swept look is by twisting your hair into a topknot or pigtails before securing it with clips. This method is easy to execute and will result in a voluminous, full-bodied wave that will turn heads.
A layered haircut is also an excellent option for getting beachy waves without any heat. It’s especially great for short hair, as it helps define the head’s shape and adds a lot of body and bounces.
A good hairstylist can recommend the right cut depending on length, thickness, and face shape. For example, a bob will show off your long strands beautifully, while a pointcut can enhance the natural waves of shorter hair.
Here Are Some Tips On How To Style Wavy Hair Without Using Heat:
- Use a leave-in conditioner: A leave-in conditioner can help detangle your hair and define your waves without heat. Apply the conditioner to your damp hair and comb through with a wide-tooth comb.
- Braid your hair: Braiding your hair is a great way to create defined waves without heat. You can braid your hair into one large braid or several smaller braid. Leave the braids in for several hours or overnight for the best results.
- Use hair rollers: Hair rollers are a great alternative to heat styling tools. Apply a styling product to your damp hair and roll your hair up in the rollers. Leave them in for several hours or overnight for the best results.
- Apply a texturizing spray: A texturizing spray can help add volume and texture to your wavy hair. Apply the spray and scrunch your hair with your fingers to define your waves.
- Air dry your hair: Instead of using a blow dryer, let your hair dry naturally. You can scrunch your hair with your fingers while it dries to create defined waves.
- Use a salt spray: Salt spray can help create beachy, textured waves without using heat. Apply the spray to your damp hair and scrunch your hair with your fingers to create waves.
- Twist your hair: Twist your hair into sections while it’s damp and let it dry. When your hair is dry, undo the twists and run your fingers to separate the waves.
Remember, wavy hair can be beautiful and low-maintenance. Experiment with techniques to find what works best for you and embrace your natural waves.

While your hair is still damp, scrunching or twisting your waves can also be beneficial. To improve the “piecey” appearance, work in 1-inch portions. Try connecting your blow dryer to a diffuser. Your blow dryer’s airflow will be less forceful with a diffuser, which will lessen how rough your hair is being dried.
