2) If you are looking for curls without having to use heat, wrap your hair around straws!

It is recommended that you go strand by strand, starting on the left or right and progressing to the other side. Spray some water on the first strange, wind it firmly around the straw and knot the end of it or use a crocodile clip to keep it in place. Do the same for the other strands and allow your hair to dry. This should take around 3 hours, but you can also leave the straws in place overnight.
