T-shirt heatless curls: Method 1


1. Create circle

Start with clean, dry hair - I have some leave-in conditioner in it.


Take a t-shirt and roll it up lengthwise, then grab an elastic and put it on one of the ends.


Then, take the other end and slip it under that elastic so you have a circle.

2. Wrap hair around t-shirt

Part your hair down the center and place the circle on the top of your head.


Then, grab one piece of hair from the front on either side and wrap it around the t-shirt.

Now, continue adding hair and wrapping it all the way around the t-shirt until you have wrapped all your hair.


Make sure you wrap your hair nice and tight - we don’t want it to be loose.
