Last night as I was scrolling through Instagram and watching the feed of my favourite bloggers, I noticed how curly and wavy hair has become a routine for us. Earlier while straight hair used to be the most popular hair fetish, the charm of curly tresses has taken the hair industry by a storm. Not only that, but we also keep coming across various hacks and ways to curl our hair. And heatless curls have become the latest obsession.

How To Get Heatless Curls Using A Scarf

What you need

  • A scarf
  • 2 bobby pins
  • Hair spray
  • A couple of hair ties
  • Hairpins

Steps to follow

Olivia starts by preparing the scarf. To do that, fold the scarf in half to create a triangle. Then the scarf is folden multiple times to make it almost like a headband. Now that you have the scarf ready, let the process begin.

  • Comb your hair and middle part it. Dampen your hair a bit and spritz some hair spray on your hair. Place the scarf on top of your head and secure it using some hairpins.
  • Start with one side of your hair. Taking your front hair, start wrapping the hair around the scarf.
  • Once you have looped in one strand of hair, add another strand to it and wrap it around the scarf.
  • Do this until you reach the end of your hair. Secure the ends using the hair tie.
  • Repeat the process on the other side of your hair.
  • Leave your hair like this overnight.
  • In the morning, take off the hair ties, unwrap your hair from the scarf and you have the perfect heatless curls.

The post that Olivia captioned as, "YES. This hair hack is now my official favorite. Even over the water bottle.." has gathered over 19 thousand views in a day and her followers are nothing but in awe of this look.

How To Make Sure Curly Hair Does Not Get Frizzy

Olivia also mentioned that she has seen this hack done with socks but she likes the scarf better. It definitely is much more comfortable to sleep on with a scarf.

Another advantage of this hack is that you have a customised hairdo to flaunt. The hair wrapped around your scarf can also be used as a hairstyle. As Olivia mentioned, "NOW, I actually love the way my hair looked with the scarf in, "itsaa look." ✌🏻Two styles ✌🏻two different days, you can even say day three will be looser curls too."
