How To Create Effortless Curls?

How To Curl A Human Hair Wig Without Heat?

Method 1: Curl A Wig With Rollers

Rollers are the easiest and most cost-effective way to create curls without heat damage. It's best if you make sure the wig is damp before using the rollers. There are many differenct sizes of rollers that you can choose to do big curls or tight curls for your needs. To do this, below are the steps you should follow:

Step 1: Place your wig on the wig stand and comb the hair

Combing the wig with a wig brush or a wide-tooth comb is the first thing that has to be done. This will assist in the removal of any tangles and knots that may cause the curling procedure to be more difficult. To prevent the hair from being damaged, begin at the bottom end of the strands, work your way up the length of the hair as you go, and use soft strokes.

Step 2: Section your hair

Section your wig with a rattail comb and secure it with hair clips.

Step 3: Spray the hair and start curling

apply rollers on hair

Spray hair with water to wet the hair and place the roller at the end of the hair strand, then wind the hair around the rollers until to the base of the wig. Carry on in this manner for each segment of hair in that bottom track of hair until all of the hair has been rolled up.

Step 4: Air dry or blow dry

You may use a blow dryer to set the curls since it is a human hair wig. Adjust the temperature to a warm setting, then raise the airflow to its highest level. Keep the blow dryer pressed against each roller for no more than a minute and a half. If you apply too much heat, the curls will come out looking unkempt, with hairs sticking out in random directions. You can also choose to let it air dry.

Step 5: Remove the rollers from the wig:

Unwind each roller carefully rather than yanking them out of your hair to remove them. To get a more natural look, run your fingers through the curls. Congratulations, you no longer need to utilize heat to get those gorgeous curls since you've achieved them naturally!
