Summer is the ideal time to experiment with heatless hairstyles!
I’ll be honest- I’ve become quite addicted to heat tools in the past couple of years, but I’m slowly learning to embrace my natural curly hair with the help of some key styling products.
While I do love how effortless it is for me to achieve this texture, I decided to take the extra step and try out a new overnight heatless curling method using three new Kenra Grip products!
I start by scrunching Kenra Whip Grip Mousse 9 ($17) into my wet hair (after scrunching my hair with a t-shirt immediately after showering). This mousse is by far the best mousse I’ve ever used! It smells divine, adds major volume and, most importantly, doesn’t leave the hair feeling crunchy or stiff.
Then, I let my hair air dry to about 80% dry. For me, this takes about an hour during the summer.
Next step is curling my hair in these rollers. They are so simple to use, work well for long hair like mine and are surprisingly comfortable to sleep in.
Then, I sleep! In the morning, I carefully remove each roller and brush my hair out to achieve the 1940s voluminous curls I’m aiming for.
Hairspray is an important step, especially for my bangs. I want them to maintain that beautiful, swirly curl all day, so I used the Kenra High Grip Hair Spray 20 ($19). Just like the mousse, this product smells delightful and adds a lot of hold.
I will say that’s it’s easy to go overboard with this hairspray, because my hair, my bangs in particular, felt quite stiff. When these photos were taken, it was a humid, windy day, and my hair held up well, but it definitely did not look as picture perfect as it did earlier in the day.
The finishing step is applying Kenra Air Grip Spray 5 ($17). If you want grip and volume that won’t weigh your hair down, this is THE product for you! My hair stayed curly and voluminous all day and the grip came in handy to hold a bobby pin in place to tuck back hair on my left side. Don’t skip this step if you want your curls to last all day!
Overall, I LOVE these heatless curls and I’m also pleased with the Kenra products! I would definitely purchase the Air Grip Spray and Whip Grip Mousse again, but I would most likely not repurchase the High Grip Spray due to how crunchy it made my hair.
What are your go-to heatless summer hairstyles? Have you tried these Kenra products before?
