The end result is bouncy, healthy looking waves that feel soft to the touch. Since the Curling Ribbon Kit ($42) is 100 percent silk, it also helps cut down on frizziness, which was a huge problem for me when using the sock method and the bathrobe tie method.
The second way I like to use the curling ribbon is on dry hair. I spray a little texturizing spray or beach wave spray on my hair and then complete the same method that I do with damp hair. I'm able to leave my hair wrapped for less time (usually two hours), and the result is typically a looser wave. Pro tip: I've found the tighter I wrap my hair around the ribbon the tighter curls I come out with. If I'm looking for a looser, beachy wave, I usually opt for the dry hair method and wrap my hair loosely around the curling ribbon.
Both methods have left me seriously impressed with my hair, and I haven't used heat on my hair in the last three weeks since first getting my curling ribbon in the mail. The Curling Ribbon Kit is so popular that it sells out quickly, but it's restocked often — so if you're looking to achieve the heatless curls of your dreams, what are you waiting for?
