Heatless Curls With Socks Vs Scrunchies: Which Method is Better?
Today we are testing heatless curls with socks versus scrunchies. Both methods are overnight heatless curling methods.
I've tried many different overnight heatless curling techniques before, using different items: bun makers, a t-shirt, the Octocurl, and a robe tie, as well as just braids. However, I've always wanted to try out sock curls and scrunchie curls, so why not do both at the same time and see how they compare?
I am going to test this out by splitting my hair down the middle and doing a method on either side to see how they come out.
Tools and materials:
- Water spray
Heatless curls with socks
Make sure your hair is brushed and smooth. Of course, I'm parting my hair down the middle, but that's up to you.
Use a mist bottle to spray your hair thoroughly with water. Or, pour water onto your hand and run it through your hair.
You don’t want it to be too damp.
3. Create the sock curls
Place the sock against your scalp and wrap the section of hair around the sock.
If you have short or medium hair, ankle socks are fine. If you have much longer hair, you may want to use longer socks.
4. Tie the sock
Just like if you were pairing your socks, pull the opening of the sock over your hair and tuck it into the sock.
Repeat with each section of hair until they are all tied up into socks.
Heatless curls with scrunchies
Use a mist bottle to spray your hair thoroughly.
2. Add the scrunchie
Hold a section of hair between your fingers and place the scrunchie underneath. Wrap the hair around itself on the scrunchie.
If you have longer, thicker hair, you may need bigger scrunchies.
Use the scrunchie to tie your hair up.
Repeat these steps with the remaining sections of hair.
Leave the scrunchies and socks in overnight.
Scrunchie curls vs sock curls results
Take the socks and scrunchies out of your hair gently. You can brush the curls out as you go or run your fingers through them, if you would like.

Heatless curls with socks vs scrunchies
In my opinion, the curls look similar to me on both sides. However, I like the sock side better. It is more voluminous than the and the socks were comfortable to sleep in.
However, considering that I had these in for around 15 hours, I'm surprised that they don't look as good as when I do heatless curls with a robe tie. Perhaps I needed my hair to be damper.
Overall, it is not what I expected but let me know what you guys think in the comments!
