This Heatless Curl Hack Is Taking Over TikTok

Wave goodbye to heat damage!

Looking to achieve the perfect curl but axe the heat damage and the early morning struggle against tools and wires?

Some creative ladies over on TikTok have taken to the app to share the latest heatless hair craze: heatless legging curls.

Sounds a bit… questionable? Supposedly leggings are a much easier, and more reliable solution to going heatless than you may have thought.

The soft fabric of the leggings is supposed to remove the friction that may come with using socks, and avoids the possibility of tangling that goes hand in hand with rollers.

The waistband of the leggings is also great for holding the legs in place as you sleep, making sure your curls set as nicely as possible!

Dying to give it a go? Here’s a tutorial on how to do it:

Let’s go over the steps again:

  1. Place your leggings of choice at the nape of your neck with one leg on either side.
  2. Wrap your hair around the leg of the leggings.
  3. Tie the end with a scrunchie, and fold the rest of the leg over your wrapped hair
  4. Finally, fold the waistband of the leggings over the hair, tucking the two legs inside
  5. Voila! Time to head to bed, and let the curling magic take place.

People are loving this method, and there’s plenty of videos to prove it!
