If you’re someone who has spent any amount of time online in the past year, you’ve likely come across the Kitsch Heatless Curling Wraps. All over my FYP I’ve seen women wrap their wet hair around what looks like a tie-dye pool noodle only to wake up with the most perfect beach-waved curls you can imagine. These innovative hair curlers promise to give you perfect curls without using any heat, and are a great alternative to traditional curling irons and hot rollers. The annoying part? They actually work. (The influencers strike again!)

The Kitsch Heatless Curling Wraps come in a pack of three and are incredibly easy to use. Simply wash and dry your hair, and then divide it into small sections. Take one of the curling wraps and place it at the end of a section of hair, then roll it up towards your scalp and secure it in place with the included hair tie. Repeat this process with the rest of your hair, and then leave the curlers in for a few hours or overnight.

The result? Gorgeous, bouncy curls that look like they’ve been styled by a professional. And the best part? Since you’re not using any heat, your hair is less likely to get damaged, meaning you can use these curlers as often as you like without worrying about causing long-term harm to your locks.

One thing to keep in mind when using these curlers is that the tighter you wrap them, the tighter your curls will be. So if you’re looking for a more relaxed, beachy wave, make sure to wrap the curlers more loosely. And if you want tighter, more defined curls, wrap them tighter.

Another great thing about these curlers is that they’re perfect for all hair types, including fine, thin hair that might struggle to hold a curl with traditional heat styling tools. Plus, since you can leave them in for hours or overnight, you don’t have to worry about rushing to style your hair before work or a big event.

Perms Are Making A Comeback, And Our Mothers Could Not Be More Thrilled

You know when you’re having a really great morning, you look good and you feel good, and then you read something really fucked up like margaritas are giving you skin rashes and you lose your will to live? Well, you may want to rethink getting out of bed this morning because this just in: perms are making a comeback. Anddd the hits just keep on coming.

Apparently perms are making a comeback and this must be stopped before my mother tags me in a very smug Facebook post. This is not a drill, people. Places like InStyle magazine, Marie Claire, and Women’s Health magazine have confirmed the story, but then again they also confirm stories like “Welcome to the Dollhouse: A Conversation With A Human Barbie” so can they really be trusted? I’ll leave that up to you. BUT if my worst nightmare is coming true and the ‘80s are coming back one beauty trend at a time, then here’s what you need to know about it:

1. Carrie Bradshaw’s Hair Isn’t Making A Comeback, Thank God

You can kind of breathe easy because the type of perm that’s making a comeback is not the over-volumized, tight curls, horrifying bangs type that we know and abhor. THANK GOD. But rather, the natural bend-in-the-hair type of perm, made famous by human praying mantises Victoria’s Secret models. Tbh it kinda makes me feel a little superior that Victoria’s Secret models might be walking around with permed hair (even if they look good AF doing it). Like, you may get the great body and date famous, beautiful people and have the metabolism of an anorexic 14-year-old girl and… I’m not sure where I was going with this but suddenly I have the urge to drink my feelings.

*opens bottle of wine*

2. It’s All About The Air Dried, I-Just-Emerged-From-A-Fucking-Lagoon Look

Which is a step away from the super styled curling iron waves that we know and love. Hmm is that why barrel curls were replaced on Nick’s season of The Bachelor with I’m-too-busy-getting-wasted-by-the-pool-to-finish-my-hair-before-the-rose-ceremony curls? Were those bitches actually ahead of the style curve or were they just, like, drunk and lazy? Food for thought.

Lol nah. Any girl who wears a leopard print headband isn’t ahead of anything other than the guy she’s flipping off on the New Jersey turnpike.

3. It All Depends On The Size Of The Rod

As is true with all things in life, how much I judge you your perm depends on the size of the rod. No, seriously. You can’t make this shit up. Using smaller rods will get you looking like a bridesmaid at your mother’s wedding somebody just put Baby in the corner, while larger rods give you that beachy wave perfection. Either way you should def consult with your hair stylist (Hi, Susi) to see how big of a rod you should use.

4. If Your Hair Color Isn’t Natural Then You’re In For A Fucking Problem

Unless you’re one of those girls who are in my burn book don’t color their hair, then you’re in for a real fucking problem. Overly highlighted hair doesn’t hold perms the same way natural hair does. This is especially true if you’re one of my sorority sisters bleaching your hair, because bleach-highlighted strands have a different consistency than the strands that aren’t highlighted, and this can seriously fuck with your curls. But because there is a God and She is obsessed with Flashdance rn, there are thio-free treatments (aka treatments that use a different chemical to break the bonds in hair) available for people who dye their hair and/or want a less damaging treatment.

Fuck, now I kind of want a perm. No one show my mother this, lest I eat shit in the family group chat. But seriously, I’m off to go reevaluate my life since apparently hell has frozen over.
