The Heatless Hair Hacks We Live By

The heatless hair hacks we swear by

How to curl, wave and straighten your hair without the use of heat styling tools.

Did you know hair burns at 233°C when using heat styling tools? And the average pre-set temperature of your common hair straightener or curler is automatically set to 240°C?

Despite the use of heat protectant sprays. That’s hot. And creates a lot of stress for your hair. 

Whilst there’s no doubt heat-based hair styling tools are a hairstyling game-changer, the breakage and fizziness it causes is extremely dangerous for hair. Especially when using heat styling hair tools nearly every day.

Revlon Professional’s Stylist Jasmine Redstone, from Polly & Stone has come up with a bunch of genius hacks to achieve Salon-worthy hairstyles without any heat.

These tips are easy and use NO heat styling whatsoever.

Perfect for when you need some hair revival before your next Zoom meeting or Zoom wine party with the girls. These hacks are worth a shot. 

Curls, without a curler:
