    The benefits of heatless waves

    Styling your hair with heat every now and then shouldn’t cause too much damage. Of course, that’s provided you maintain a healthy hair routine and don’t overwash your hair. Using a curling iron every day can burn or harm hair, leading to split ends, breakage, and dullness. Heatless waves are an awesome alternative to deploy at work or school for that casual, yet put-together look.

    On the days you give your hair a rest, consider the following heatless styling ideas. Most require setting overnight, but when you wake up in the morning with picture-perfect glam waves, you’ll be oh so glad you did.
