Octocurl No-Heat Curlers Look Ridiculous, But They Give Great Results
Everyone’s talking about the Octocurl no-heat curlers! So, I decided to see what the fuss is all about! Any method that doesn’t require heat is really awesome, so giving this DIY Octocurl a try is totally worth the time and effort to see if it really achieves heatless curls.
I’m so excited to show you this process, and of course, the results! Let’s jump right into this Octocurl tutorial.
Tools and materials:
1. Place the Octocurl on your head
First thing’s first, place the gadget around your head, as shown. Yes, it looks weird.
You can make it tighter or looser by playing around with the strap at the back. It needs to sit comfortably on your head, not too tight either, as this is a heatless curls overnight process.
2. Start curling your hair
My hair has been washed, and it’s somewhat dry but still damp. Now, we're ready to start curling, but there are three different methods you can use. I'm going to demonstrate all three, so you can see the results and figure out which will work best for your hair.
Take a section and wrap your hair around each silk tube.
When you get to the end of your hair, tie the elastic that’s placed at the end of the silk tube around your ends, as shown.
You could also try a different wrapping technique with a criss-cross around the silk strap. Divide a section of your hair into two smaller sections, and criss-cross it over and under the tube.
This is another awesome method of wrapping your hair, especially if you want tighter curls. Wrap a section of your hair tightly around one strap, and then wrap it into a bun after.
Secure the bun with the elastic from the end.
So, for me, it took around 12 minutes to wrap each section of hair around the silk tubes. If you have thicker or longer hair, it may take you longer. But this is what it should look like in the end! Now, it’s time to go to bed and let the DIY Octocurl work its magic.

5. Unravel your hair
Ok, it’s morning and time to take out the gadget, unravel my hair, and see the Octocurl before and after effect!
Here’s the first piece, which I creating with the simple wrapping technique.
This is how the coil turned out, and I like it!
This is what it looks like before it’s fluffed out; I like the result. It definitely curled my hair!

Ok, here’s the final look! Be sure to run your fingers through your hair to loosen the curls.
I love how these heatless curls came out, though I prefer having more curls closer to my roots; that’s why I feel the right side of my head looks better since the curls start higher than the left side.
All in all, the Octocurl no-heat curlers worked great, maybe a little uncomfortable to sleep in, but it did a great job!
