Well, some people are blessed with naturally curly hair, but if you are not one of them and have been chasing heat styling tools like blow dryer, curling rods and flat iron and ruining your hair, this one's for you. All these heat styling tools might help you attain that gorgeous curly hair look but are not good for your hair in the long run as an excessive use might lead to dryness, split ends, hair loss, breakage and what not. But we have got something for your rescue. Here are some easy ways to get those beautiful curls without damaging your hair with styling tools.

1. Braiding

Back in school, there was this one teacher who used to force us to braid our hair tight, and we had to do it because we didn’t have any other choice and I bet you hated that too. Well, this hack is going to remind you of that teacher along with giving you beautiful beachy waves.


  • Detangle your hair and then by using a spray bottle, spray some water on the lengths of your hair in order to dampen them.
  • Make a nice braid and tie it using a hair tie and now go for a good night's sleep. 
  • Next morning, undo the braid
  • Apply some hair serum to your lengths, and here are your nice and easy beachy waves.

  • Detangle and divide your hair into as many sections as you want depending upon how tight or loose you want the curls. 
  • Spray some water over the lengths and grab a sock. 
  • Start wrapping a section of your hair over the sock starting from the middle so that you would have the ends free to tie them up. 
  • After rolling the hair, tie the ends of the socks together. 
  • Repeat this with all the hair and keep it overnight. 
  • The next morning untie the socks very gently and there you have those classic curls.
