How to Create Big Voluminous Curls Without Heat

I have a confession: I'm addicted to hair-styling heat tools from curling wands, to flat irons, to blow dryers I mean the list goes on. Just in case you weren't aware, when these heating tools are used excessively they can cause major damage to your hair. Refraining from using heat can help you achieve longer, stronger and healthier hair. When I hide my curling iron I like to get creative and discover new ways to achieve natural styles; such as this heatless voluminous curls hairstyle using Redken No Blow Dry Bossy Cream from your local Hair Cuttery salon. The No-Heat Challenge is a great way to start transitioning from chemical and heat damaged hair back to the beautiful tresses you were born with.

Step 1: Treat Your Curls and Deep Condition.
I first washed my hair with Hair Cuttery's haircare line, Cibu, which includes sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner. Since every curly haired girl knows how important it is to condition your hair the next step is a weekly deep conditioning mask. Today I will be using Redken's Extreme Strengthening Mega Hair Mask which was designed specifically for damaged hair.

Step 2: Apply Leave-in Conditioner.
You may be thinking we just used conditioner, a hair mask and now you are asking me to use another conditioner product. Yes, yes I am. After rinsing off the hair mask it's time to apply Redken Frizz Dismiss Rebel Tame which is a leave-in smoothing control cream that provides smoothness and humidity protection. Since I live in Miami, my hair kind of needs that deeper level of moisture. Leave-in conditioners moisturize dry hair, and make it softer, smoother, and shinier.

Step 3: Prepare for No Heat, Effortless Hairstyle‎.
Normally I would say to use a diffuser to speed up the process but since we are doing the No Heat Challenge we are going to opt for something else. The Redken No Blow Dry Air Dry Styling Creams features Air-Tex Technology which pretty much means a faster drying time. I used the No Blow Dry Bossy Cream for Coarse Hair to provide a quick air-dry with effortless manageability and frizz control. These styling creams are perfect for those of us who are taking a break from heat tools.

Step 4: Hair Rollers and Curlers.
With the use of hair rollers and curlers you can achieve tighter waves that are extremely bouncy. You are going to want to apply these on slightly damp hair because if it's too wet they will take absolutely forever to dry. For better results I would recommend leaving them in overnight, so a little discomfort is worth it if you want truly awesome curls.

Step 5: Afro Pik Your Hair For Volume.
Once the hair is completed dry and you take off the rollers. You might look like Shirley Temple but don't worry we aren't done yet. After separating the curls it's time to achieve more volume. You can go from flat curls to full on mane with the use of an afro pik or wide tooth comb. Be gentle as you don't want to lose the full form of the curl.

  22. I also love I'm all types of hair-styling heat tools. They are easy to use and what is even more convenient to me - it is fast using them.
    I am not sure if I am ready to surprise my husband with a new overnight look. And I don't have enough time in the mornings to try them. Maybe someday ...
