Heatless Curls On Flat Ironed Hair

Saturday, February 20, 2016

What's the best "go-to" style when you're tired of your old limp flat ironed hair? CURLSSS!! 

My hair is approximately 7 days post flat iron (I try to stretch it as long as possible) and I was just bored of the constant straight look! I wanted some curls and volume without the use of extra heat, so I grabbed my trusty 1" inch satin pillow rollers, my Creme of Nature Argan Oil Setting Foam Lotion and went to work! Side note - if you know me, I'm not a fan of using excessive rollers or flexi rods in my hair to achieve a certain look. I like to take the minimalistic route and use just enough rollers to cover my hair. 

Products/Items I used:

1) Creme of Nature Argan Oil Foam Setting Lotion - I used the Creme of nature foam setting lotion sparingly as I didn't want to saturate my ends to the point of reversion. I used half a pump (or less) per section to set my curls overnight.

2) 1" Satin Pillow Rollers - I used a total of 9 rollers all over. I placed a satin pillow roller in the front of my hair for extra curl and volume to frame my face. For the rest of my head, I placed 4 satin rollers per side (8 rollers in the back and 1 in the front). To achieve the curl, I wrapped my hair around the satin roller, to create that coily "look", starting from the mid shaft first - not the ends.  The satin material prevented my ends from frizz and drying out.          

My Hair Before:

3) Satin Scarf & Bonnet - I covered my hair with a satin scarf to keep my hairline tamed. I then used my bonnet, for extra measures, to keep everything under control while I sleep.

4) Hicks Edge Control - In the morning, I used a little bit of my Hicks edge control to tame my baby hairs down. I used a toothbrush to smooth it down for all day hold.

Here are my results:

I enjoyed this style so much and I must say it was effortless! My curls lasted pretty much all day long, although they dropped slightly. The hold I received from the CON Argan Oil Foam held up pretty well without feeling dry or crunchy. 

As I mentioned before, the satin pillow rollers prevented my hair/ends from drying out, which was a bonus! My hair had bounce, shine and body which is exactly what I wanted to achieve! Most importantly, it's heat free, which means guilt free :)

Have you used satin pillow rollers in your hair? How did you like it?

  1. I've used them before and the results have never been that great. Reading this I'm thinking that it's because I roll my hair from the ends versus starting in the middle. I'll five it amother try.

    1. Yes! The key thing to remember is wrapping your hair around the roller and not the roller around your hair. Hope that makes sense! Lol. Keeping that in mind will give you those bouncy spiral curls!

  2. Love it! The curls are so gorgeous.


    1. Thanks so much!! It was so much fun to rock during the week. This is a style I will definitely wear again :)

  3. Thanks for the review on the look! Thanks also for the close up on the satin rollers... I've seen them on Amazon but wasn't sure how they would work if I had bought them. Now I know! Your hair came out amazing, as always :)

    1. Thank you!! Yes they are amazing and so easy to use. You don't need a lot to achieve the soft curls and volume. Not to mention there are a breeze to sleep in - its a win/win :) Let me know how you like them!

  4. Just when I was about to ditch my satin rollers! I love your results chica!
