Here are some easy tips for heatless curls:

1. Prep Your Hair

Most heatless curl styles are best when done on damp but not wet hair. Some can also be done on dry hair if the hair sits for longer. If you don’t want to wash your hair, try applying water via a spray bottle. Additionally, you can add some light redhead-approve mousse to the hair to help it hold the style while drying.
