…To Keep You Looking Hot Without The Heat!

Rocking a hot hairstyle doesn’t mean you need to put up with the heat-styling drama. The hair pros at Luster Products, makers of the popular Pink line of hair care products, share three heatless style options that will keep you looking oh-so cool…

3 heatless 11. Heatless Perm (or Flexi) Rod Set
Heatless rod sets are beautifully bouncy and fun! It’s best to start with dry, stretched hair. Section hair for rodding and add a small amount of Pink Design Control Gel from root to tip while detangling the hair with your fingers. Roll hair around the rod securely, and repeat. Once all sections have been rodded, wrap your hair in a satin scarf and let it air dry. Remove rods once has completely dried and style as desired.



3 heatless 22. Bantu Knot-Out
The Bantu Knot-Out creates unlimited curls and coils! For this style, you can either start with dry, stretched or freshly washed hair. Create small sections and apply Pink Original Oil Moisturizer Lotion and Pink Holding Spray to your hair and roll each section into a Bantu Knot. Once all sections are complete, hands off and allow your hair to air dry completely. Then, apply a small amount of Pink Natural Oils to the hair, to prevent flaking and enhance its natural sheen, before you begin untwisting the Knots. This method creates soft, well-defined ringlets .

3 heatless 33. Heatless Blow-Out
Achieve this style by starting with dry, stretched hair or a curly ‘do that is a bit old. Apply a small amount of Pink Natural Oils, gently brushing in the oil (on stretched hair) or brushing the hair in the opposite direction of the curls (for hair that is in its natural state). Wrap hair in a circle, secure with bobby pins and tie it down with a satin scarf. The next day, spray with Pink Sheen Spray, brushing hair down and style as desired.
