8. Bathrobe Curls
Bathrobe curls have become viral on TikTok as the most popular heatless curling technique. If you're in a time crunch and searching for a lazy way to get curls, bathrobe curls can be your savior! Plus, no hot tools are involved, so no worrying about hair damage. Just use your bathrobe belt to wrap small sections of hair. Set them aside for a few hours, then remove the belt. Voila, your loose wavy, or full bouncy curls are ready!
Pro tip: Make sure your hair is damp before wrapping it up. This will result in a better curl definition (you can thank us later).
