I'm guessing you mean without the use of heat. I always french braid my hair after my shower at night and then by morning it should be dry and then just take them out and you have curls. Depending how curly you want your hair would depend on how many braids you do. Hope that helps you.

Well, if you mean by natural you mean "using no chemical products", then all you have to do is use a smaller rounded brush, hold your hair around it and blow dry.

If you mean "using no chemical product and no electricity", then take some chenille rods "pipe cleaners", wind your hair around them and use them like rollers - just leave them in until your hair is completely dry or it won't work.

While your hair is wet, put mousse all through it, and then lean over so your hair hangs to one side. Put your hand under it and lift, so it gets bunched up, and it will fold according to whatever natural wave it has. This is the same technique I saw a girl doing who had long permed hair. It's a form of scrunching for longer hair, and now I scrunch and bunch mine. Good luck!

Wow, pipe cleaners...that sure brought back memories. As a child that was the only way my mother curled our hair and they weren't too bad to sleep on either.

If your hair is long another way to get sort of curling is to put your hair in braids, and let it dry. When dry, you can fluff it out with hair product, mouse, etc.

You can also buy rollers from any discount store. Warning, they are uncomfortable to sleep on. Remember those picks that you put through the rollers to keep in them in place? Ugh!

The best way is to just braid your hair as mentioned before for nice waves or use heated curlers or a curling iron.

I have naturally curly hair and I use a product called "Curls Rock" by Catwalk. It comes in a bright blue round (like a ball) bottle and can be found at Walmart and some beauty supply stores. It is pricey, but a little goes a long way. My hair is a little longer than shoulder length (when I don't savage it with a blow dryer) and I use two squirts on my towel-dried hair. I let it air dry and go.

It comes out in loose ringlets with no frizz. Sometimes I'll seperate the hair as it dries and get more curls.

I don't think it will do much on straight hair though.

A good way to curl your hair the natural way is to get a spray bottle put a squeeze of gel, a couple of spoons of sea salt and some water. Shake until sea salt gets {not completely) dissolved and don't, I repeat, don't crush it to powder. I tried it thinking it would dissolve faster and instead it got all flakey like gel.

You can try rolling your hair up in old rags when it's damp - I used to do that all the time! First, work some curl-enhancing leave-in conditioner into your hair and comb through. Lay the rag out flat and roll it up into a tube. Then take a section of your hair (small sections for ringlets and larger ones for loose waves) and roll from the bottom up, tying the ends of the rag in a knot when you get to your scalp. You might need to spray the rest of your hair a couple of times with leave-in conditioner to keep it damp as you go along. Leave it to set - overnight if you want, or just for a half hour while you get dressed and and do whatever - and when you take out the rags and finger-comb, you'll have nicely curled or wavy hair. Hope that helps!
